Chateau de Pont-Remy

The Château de Pont Remy, also known as the Château Clochard (meaning the ‘homeless man’ or ‘tramp’ a reference to its abandoned state) or Château Pianiste (for the number of pianos left at the site).

The Château originally has been the site of numerous historical visitors including Cardinal Richelieu since it’s rebuilding after being destroyed during the hundred years war. An association was set up in 2007 to persuade the owners to save this historic monument.

On August 13th 2012 the Château was severely damaged by fire, halting a planned community renovation and restoration program.
