Château de Chambord, Loire Valley, France. Visited summer 2004. It really is just like a fairytale castle from a storybook.
With every passing day, the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers falls further into ruin; another stone becomes dislodged by strangling vines, what remains of the roof sinks a little lower. Nature is winning.
