BEST KNOWN ABANDONED CHATEAU IN THE WORLD !!





Roadtrip DAY 1:

After a 5 hour drive we arrived at this stunning abandoned chateau in France.

The castle or mansion has been owned by a family of industrialists. The most famous inhabitant was a French minister who lived here with his parents for a long time. He and his family were very wealthy. They earned a fortune with their tobacco factoriesand built large houses in France and abroad. With his money he subsidized many associations in the province where Chateau Lumière can be found.

During the first world war the chateau was occupied by the Germans and the family had to provide tobacco to the German troops. He refused his cooperation so he had to stay in prison for a few days.

He was called for military service but he escaped to Switzerland. Still, he was arrested by Germans who threatened to kill him. He is saved by Customs, but as his possessions are advanced and destroyed. After the war he received several medals for his loyalty to his country.

During the second world war, the castle was named chateau Keller. The minister was expelled from his residence. His castle is then used as a school for woonded soldiers. After the war, he was suspected of cooperation with the enemy. His political career was over.

At the age of 77, he died and is buried far from his parental home, Chateau Lumière. He was commemorated 7 years later during an important ceremony. There he received recognition from the French Government for the work he has done for France.

Since 1993, the building has a protected status as a historic monument.
