This ancient castle may look a bit ruined and run down now, but its walls house a rich history of elegance, aristocracy, and intrigue. Now a modern-day effort is underway to help continue its story.
A Hidden History
Everywhere you look, moss and shrubbery are overrunning its grand windows, balconies and towering archways; it’s a grand reveal waiting to happen. But many centuries ago, this castle was a gathering place for the rich and famous.
A Living Part of History
Look closer, and you can see hints of the castle’s former self. You can imagine party-goers peering over the balconies, drinks in hand; a couple out by the water sneaking a kiss. Now, only the shadows of the castle’s countless visitors still visit.
A French Gem
Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers is located in the town of Les Trois-Moutiers, in the Poitou-Charentes region of France (about 200 miles southwest of Paris).
