Château de La Rochepot, Commune of La Rochepot, Burgundy,France

Château de La Rochepot has gone through many changes over the centuries. Originally a 12th-century feudal castle of neo-Gothic-Burgundian style, it was rebuilt in the 15th century. During the French Revolution, it was seized and declared a national asset, and partially destroyed by vandals. Beginning in 1893 and for the next 26 years, it was meticulously restored to its 15th century roots; many of the roofs were covered with glazed burgundy tiles. The castle is located in the commune of La Rochepot, in the Burgundy region of France.

In 2013 and 2014, parts of the castle, annex buildings, vineyards and the park were given the status of a national monument.

Just as a side note:  We visited the chateau in February 2018.  I just found this information on Wikipedia on a recent happening involving the chateau.  In October 2018, the castle was seized by the French government after investigation into an alleged money laundering scheme by Dmytro Malynovskyi, a Ukrainian. Malynovski was arrested after an investigation into a corruption and money laundering scheme in which he purchased and lived in the castle after faking his own death.    And an interesting article from Bloomberg: Dead Ukrainian Found Living in Castle.
