    Came across this place towards the end of mes vacances while driving between Montredon-des-Corbières and Marcorignan. Saw the graff on the side of the house as we flashed past it and checked it out on Google Earth when we got home. It confirmed to me it was abandoned so went back the next day. Can’t find any info on the place at all. It was a farm and presumably the parents died, the spouses didn’t want to live there, tried to sell it and couldn’t and it fell into disuse (a common theme here in France).

    Nice easy early morning explore this. Parked up and walked down the road to the place. One thing that had changed since the Google car had been round is the doorway had been totally breeze-blocked up! No matter, round the back we went and we were in. Inside the house it was totally empty and not that photogenic to be honest. However the out-houses and farm buildings provided some interest. Here’s the pics.

    OK, not going in via the front!

    Round the back we go:

    What a lovely morning and that is VERY red:

    That Renault tractor isn’t going anywhere:

    And it’s Thomas, but not as we know it:

    A quick peek in one of the outbuildings:

    A few bits and bobs knocking around:

    The back-building has some interesting stuff in it:

    Nice tiles!

    This looks like some sort of ‘press’, for pressing grapes maybe?

    Obligatory hanging basket shot:

    So on into the house itself. Not too much to report as mentioned earlier:

    Though these tiles in the kitchen have a bit of character:

    The bath tried to leave but failed:
