A huge Château located in a large grounds, Château Japonais aka Château des Chasseurs is quite isolated from the nearby homes. This gorgeous castle has been somewhere I have wanted to photograph since I saw pictures online. Clearly the building had fallen into disrepair but observations during our trip suggest that the building is undergoing some renovation works and will one day hopefully be restored to its former glory.

Some of the most interesting remaining features include the first-floor chapel located at one end of the Château which was in surprisingly good condition compared to some of the other areas. The central staircase whilst smaller than I had imagined was a nice feature and the basement rooms had some lovely arched brick ceiling.

For me personally it was all about the exterior of this place, the 2 main turrets and the curved staircases front and back made for a really unique design which was really awesome to capture.

The building lived up to expectations and was a joy to photograph. Visited with Andy de Kay

Damn, such a lovely set mate - looks a beautiful building. The second picture does it for me - that staircase looks amazing!
