A Haunted Castle!!
In rather a Blair Witch Project kind of way, a colleague of mine and I visited a chateau with, what we felt, had a potential for truly being haunted.
I cannot name the chateau in question as I would have to kill you all as it is filed in the Top Secret Category of places to go into my Haunted Guide of France!! Ha ha!
We arrived in the early evening for a seance being held by a well-known medium within the castle walls. As this was the first seance I have ever been to, I cannot compare, but I found the ambiance to be excellent! It was held in the downstairs drawing room of the chateau. Afterwards, said colleague and I had a private tour of the entire place--at night!
Zee chateau in the dwindling light of the early evening.
Lit up at night, all dramatic!
Gorgeous staircase in the day ...
That looks like this at night. I had a paranormal experience on these stairs, the details of which shall be written into my haunted guide.
Nice eerie hallway.
Me in a mirror.
The window in which a ghost is often seen looking out of. More details on paranormal activity to come in the haunted guide.
The place was crawling with creepy spiders!
Loved these doorways!
Then we went outside and toured the grounds in the dark--like I said, à la Blair Witch Project.
I have no idea what the heck this is!!
Us, running to escape it!! (just kidding, but pretty dramatic, nest ce pas!)
Then we went down into the cellars under the chateau.
Where the owner has been digging and discovered more rooms!
And we met a bunch of these fellas!
Several rooms were filled with tempting mattresses such as these. Me and my big burly guy friend colleague were given permission to stay the night here. Pah-retty spooky!!
Bon, gros bisous des châteaux qui font peur et a bientôt!!
