Castle Was Abandoned After a Fire 80 Years Ago, The Inside Is Hauntingly Beautiful

Gazing at this incredible footage of The Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers in France is like taking a trip back in time to a time where elegance and opulence was the norm. The hauntingly-beautiful castle is a is a former stronghold of the Bauçay family, lords of Loudun.
The imposing construction was built in the thirteenth century and was originally called Motte Bauçay (or Baussay). Since then, the castle faced multiple challenges that weakened its structure. In the Middle Ages, the castle was taken twice by the English.
Also, during the French Revolution, the castle was significantly devastated. The castle took its biggest hit yet in 1932 when a major fire destroyed most of the buildings inside.
But despite all of this, the castle stood tall and now is considered to be one of the hidden gems of France.
In December 2017, no less than 6,500 members of an online community who saw the true value of the castle managed to raise €500,000 and purchase the castle with the aim of restoring it to its former glory.
This incredible aerial footage of the castle was taken using a drone and shows the breathtaking beauty of the castle from every angle. You need to see this!
