Château Lumiere, France

Chateau Lumiere is a stunning abandoned house in France. The open balcony-style landing allows light from the central skylight to flood through the entire building.

History

Château Lumiere was the family home of a wealthy tobacco tycoon of Swiss decent. The stunning chateau hidden away in a quiet town in France was built in a Neo-Baroque style in the early 1900s.

The house was used for business purposes after the owner left the town in the 1950’s. The chateau has been sold numerous times, however has stood empty since then. Considering how long the house has been unused it is in amazingly good condition.

Our Visit

This was our first location for the second day of the “Missing Man Tour” along with Proj3ct M4yh3m, Kriegaffe9, after spending the night here. The first thing that hit us when we awoke was the stunning light pouring through the skylight and illuminating the entire building. It was easy to see why this place got its name! Although there isn’t much content left, Lumiere is by far my favourite residential location to date owing to the stunning architecture and décor.
