History:
Chateau Port was constructed in somewhere the middle of the 1800, somewhere in a small village in France. This building was build by a rich family which owned a lot of land in the region. In the second world war this chateau was captured by the german army to serve as a military headquarters for the Nazi's. After the war the chateau was given back to the family.

Our visit:
We started our explore without any knowledge if the place was accessible or still abandoned in general, we only had a article of a local newspaper which said that this chateau closed down due to deferred maintenance. Luckily after a hike trough the forest we could enter the chateau relatively easy. So we were inside, The interior was absolutely insane, I really didn't expect that it was this nice inside. Unfortunately the decay in the castle wasn't that far so it felt kinda sketchy and not abandoned sometimes, but nonetheless it was a great place to visit!

Wow that's super nice. It does look very fresh though and very much like a hotel. Is that your car outside the window of the reception/bar area?

Thx man! It was really fresh, maybe a bit too fresh for my taste. The car in front was also abandoned (Tires were flat).
