Ruins and Restoration

In recent years I received a message from Mr. G. Merceli:

"Je voulais simplement vous signaler que des travaux de restauration au chateau de BOUTEVILLE ont été entrepris depuis un an."
"I would simply like to tell you that the restoration works at BOUTEVILLE castle have been in progress for the last year now."

Nowadays things are rather different. This is the chateau today. The restoration started in 1984 and is ongoing.

The Ruins

From the ground it can be seen that the chateau today is simply a ruin.
