Château de Charleval
Location: Charleval, in the Vaucluse departement of France (Provence-Alpes-Cote-d-Azur Region).
Ownership / Access: Private.
Notes: The castle of Charleval is an architectural project of the King of France Charles IX located in the commune of Charleval in the Eure in Normandy.Magnet hunting in the forest of Lyons, the young king of France Charles IX is seduced by the site of Noyon and decides to acquire the place. He expropriated the tenants occupying the lands where he wished to sit his castle; the priory of Saint-Martin was destroyed at that moment, as were the forty-four houses at the Hôtel-Dieu. It specifies the construction of a castle of French Renaissance style. It was to be four times larger than the castle of Chambord and baroque style. Work began before 1570. St. Bartholomew slowed down the construction work, as the gardens began to take off. The death of the king on May 30, 1574 marks the end of the building site. Only the first floor of the only building under construction was flush with. A temporary dwelling, however, has been erected, in order to allow the king a brief stay. It included two pavilions called "the King" and "the Queen". The second still subsists today, becoming a dwelling house belonging to a private individual. The only vestige of the castle is the chimney in the room of the feasts Charles IX of the commune.
