Chateau de la Tremblaye

The XIVth century, the House of Tremblaye already exists. Subsequently, this last chateau is enlarged and undergoes rearrangements in the XVIth and XVIIth. Devastated during the French revolution, La Tremblaye becomes property of O’Riordan, An Irish family.

Since the beginning of the XXth century, the chateau is deteriorating more day by day. Some of the still standing walls, devoured by the vegetation, threaten sooner or later to collapse, the Manoir de La Tremblaye was built on a rectangular plan in granite protected by moats straddled by a now defunct drawbridge. (many thanks to its current owners for letting me look around).
