Chateaux of the Creuse


There are at least 300 Château hidden in the Creuse. Some are visible from over 100 miles away, others have been swallowed up by the undergrowth.

One hundred years ago, there were many more and finding out which Château still remain is quite a task. There are countless reasons for the destruction of these great monuments.
It’s still happening today.

Many abandoned Château are being restored, however many have disappeared from the map and radar. French reclamation yards are still crammed packed full of marble pillars, grand fireplaces and massive wooden panels. They had to have come from somewhere.

Some Château hiding away are simple spectacular. They have no sign posts, even many locals do not know of there existence and there is no documentation online and yet they are still there; hidden away. Some have been there for centuries. To complicate matters, several dialects are spoken in France, meaning Château names have often changed or been misspelled over time. Often different Châteaux share very similar or identical names: Château de la Fôt and Château du Fôt; for instance.
