The man who owned this chateau was named by Life Magazine as having one of the three "truly great stamp collections worldwide". His collection was considered one of the greatest ever assembled and included some of the world's rarest stamps.
During WW1, he was forced to house injured German soldiers here, but refused to supply them with tabacco. This resulted in him being exiled and spending eight months behind bars.
He went on to become part of the French Parliament and received the Military Cross and the Medal of Loyalty for his refusal to collaborate with the enemy. He died in the 1950s and his house has been sporadically occupied since, but has had no one permanently inhabit these walls since the 1980s.
Anyway, I barely post selfies so here's my favorite one from the abandoned bathroom of an important man.
