History of Château Sous Les Nuages
Château Sous Les Nuages – the Castle in the Clouds – was purchased by a famous French singer in the 1990s. The mansion had been unoccupied for some time prior to this and had fallen into a state of disrepair. The singer carried out extensive renovations and completely modernised the house, installing state of the art systems throughout. The singer lived in the house along with many family members for the next 20 years, and no expense was spared on interior decoration and furnishings.
In the early 2010s some of the family embarked on a two month world tour. Jetting off from Charles de Gaulle airport on a flight to Puru, they were never to be seen again. It is thought they had emigrated to avoid the spiralling debts building up from maintaining the property, and they had never ceased spending extortionate amounts of money on lavish furniture. The house was repossessed a few months later and the remaining family members moved out, leaving the expensive items behind. If they claimed any of the items as their own they would also be required to take on the huge debts left behind.
