    Chateau Foret was built in 1860 and has been unoccupied since the 1990s due to a family dispute. We were extremely lucky to get in here, most people who have managed it before have had to pay for the privilege. Never thought I'd see it with my own eyes, thankfully we took a chance and it paid dividends. We were inside for about 2 hours before the owners turned up and we had to make a hasty retreat to the roof as they made their way upstairs. Luckily they didn't find us and we managed to escape after they'd gone. We managed to photograph most of the best bits so we were all happy with what we'd got anyway. What a place. Much of it is still in amazing condition although the top floor is a complete mess and falling to pieces (see pic 27 for example). Onto the pics, I went a bit vignette crazy with these but I quite like the effect on this particular set. Enjoy!

    Stunning report mate, looks like a lot of stuff has either been nicked or removed by the owner. Also what kind of tosser spray paints the main stair well….its definitely gone down hill since i went, still a stunning place mind.

    Cheers mate. Yeah I couldn't believe the graff either, of all the places. It's not even a tag it's just mindless vandalism. The owners were removing stuff while we were there so I'm guessing everything will be gone in the coming months and apparently they are renovating the whole place.
