Abandoned Mansion in Auvergne, France

(Image: Colin Chazaud (see website), reproduced with permission)

This abandoned mansion in the Auvergne region of France, with decorative turrets above and to either side of the main door, was once clearly the grand country seat of a prosperous family. While the front door remains open for urban explorers and the outer shell appears to be intact, the central upstairs window appears to reveal a gaping hole in the roof, reflecting the fate of so many grand properties left to the elements. The abandoned building is surrounded by other crumbling structures – if you know their story, be sure to leave a comment!

    This is the most beautiful building I have ever seen. It would be fun to fix it up.
