The boar Castle

Known as château Sanglier

North of the country, France

His nickname is coming from the stuffed boar's head that adorns the entrance to the castle. Real little jewel of northern France, the secrecy surrounding its location still preserves the vandals who have already done so much damage elsewhere. Despite several years of neglect, the castle, situated on over 4 acres still looks like its good old days.

We guess that the castle, built in 1902, has been maintained for some time because, beyond the furniture which is still in place, the signs of time haven't affect the castle so much. Time seems to have stopped, as evidenced by the clock from the top of its tower.
