Unlocked Treasures

A few months ago I wrote about a Parisian apartment that was opened for the first time since before World War II. Now, another French home has been unlocked, this time after 100 years. The wealthy bachelor, Louis Mantin, said in his will that his mansion in central France should be turned into a museum 100 years after his death. Here are some beautiful pictures (via BBC News).

The mansion is in Moulins, France.

Apparently he spent his bachelorhood collecting artifacts.

Simply beautiful!

I love this bathroom. Can you believe that he had a towel warmer in his bathroom over 100 years ago?

For more information and to watch a video about the mansion please go to BBC News
