More a Manor House with pretensions of grandeur, this place must once have been pretty impressive.
Today, it's in a sorry state. Poorly maintained and with one tower spire already demolished and the other
ready to collapse at any moment. it has definitely seen better days. Downstairs is a second-hand furniture shop
with beat-up cars scattered about the forecourt. First-floor apartments advertised but largely unlet, cobweb
shrouds hanging in  the windows.  A stark contrast to my last castle posting at Montbrault.

Hi Woe. Thanks. As well as the many magnificent chateaux around here, there are some pretty decrepit ones as well.

I stayed in a property like this near cognac.   It belonged to a family friend who bought it to do up.  I think they then sold it as there was nothing for miles around it,  not even a restaurant.   There was of course a local boulangerie and countryside was beautiful.

We're about 400Km north of Cognac, as the drone flies - about 40 batteries' worth

It's some years since we've travelled south of the Loire and, consequently, I have no drone footage from the southerly parts of France.  In the present Global circumstances, it may be some time before the opportunity arises

Indeed,  I see France has had a little increase of late.  Stay Safe.

you're welcome Blériot53. I love castles. France, Scotland, Ireland, Spain have some magnificent castles. In France, my biggest problem is that I don't master the language, otherwise I would travel more.

It was built in the 1870's by the owner of a granite quarry.

Don't let language be a barrier to your enjoyment of travel. Communication can always be achieved one way or another

You're right! I will try to do it. Yesterday in the area near Arette the weather was bad, so I came back wanting to do it.
