Chateau Marianne / Chateau Alchimiste

 

 

History

 

Not much history on this location but it was rumoured to be have been once occupied by a former professor. The chateau is located in a small, rural town in France. The town's residents have halved in the last 40 years and it was beginning to look quite run down. I can imagine the nickname  'Alchimiste' (which means Alchemist in French) came from all the chemistry equipment left behind such as: test tubes, syringes, bottles, cylinders and beakers.  It seems the previous inhabitant was also a bit of an artist, we found many paintings scattered around the house and a large collection in the attic, as well as a small studio in an upstairs room. 

 

Visit

 

I visited this beautiful chateau on a euro trip with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M. We went the previous night to check to see if it was accessible and boy we were in for a shock! Neither of us realised how much stuff had been left and how interesting the contents were. We both particularly liked the framed butterfly collection which was hung up in one of the living rooms, as it reminded us of the film 'Silence of the Lambs.'  After a short investigation we decided to return the following day and booked a hotel in a nearby town.  Arriving the next morning once sun had risen, the place was really brought into it's element. So, as always, hope you enjoy my photos!

This place is absolutely fantastic. Old furniture, pictures, bottles and chemistry things, decay ... Awesome, exactly my taste. I would love to see it by my own. Really great.

Thank you! Yeah, it was right up my street! If you end up in France at any point I'd definitely recommend popping in :)

      Strolling trough the mountains we came across an interesting site.
      Abandoned cars and a lot of junk on the side of a steep mountain. 
      we have no idea how it got there, but here is a quick look at the spooky abandoned cars of La-Roche.

      In the Belgian Ardenne mountains on a spit of land in the small town of La-Roche de Ardenne, Lies a camp site beyond anything i have ever seen.
      A camping in rapid state of decline, the most uncomfortable place i have ever seen. Dirty and riddled with trash... 
      Oh and the abandoned camp site is right next to it, so don't mistake  the two. one just looks abandoned and one is.
      But feeling our way in darkness we did come across some amazing finds.

      History
      Maes Mynan care home was a two floor 33 bedroom care home on a site of 2.6 acres.
      The care home was for the elderly and it had its own day service and its own respite service for a short stay and emergency placements.
      The site was bought in 2013 by the healthcare company and has been left untouched since.
      The building itself we could not find much history about or anything about when the care home opened.
       
      Our Visit
      We decided to visit this place when we went out on a day trip to Engedi chapel (report will be up soon).
      On the way back we still had a lot of daylight left so we thought we would stop in and have a look at this site after seeing a report.
      The surrounding area was very overgrown and there was a long pathway leading up to the build.
      The site itself was in pretty good condition, well worth the visit if you have any free time.
      Be mindful if you do visit as just at the back of the site, there is a house that we assumed is occupied.
