Château ML (Belgium)

This majestic castle in a wonderfully quaint environment is located in the far outskirts of Belgium. After the château lost its noble owners some decades ago, it was turned into a vacation home for children. During this period, several of the building’s once prestigious chambers were transformed into class- and bedrooms. When the organization that ran the children’s vacation colony went bankrupt a couple of years ago, the castle along with its beautiful garden was left abandoned.
