Château Stromae, sometimes called Castle 65, is a huge abandoned house in France. The house has been left to decay for many years. Built within the grounds of an ancient abbey, the house incorporates some stonework from the original buildings. The house features several wood panelled rooms including an ornately carved library. On the first floor we find a chapel with intricate wall decor. Bizarrely the house also has a Arabian themed room, although I have no idea what this room would have been used for or why the theme was chosen.
