Castle Meur – A quirky house built between rocks

Plougrescant, a small village in France, is best known for Castel Meur. A small stone house built between two huge granite rocks in the sea. Surrounded by a stone wall to protect itself from the strong winds that blow in the area, it was built in 1861. The access to the house used to be free but since some tourists climbed on the roof to be photographed  and caused damage, the owner was pushed to protect his property. Now a perimeter wall prohibits access to the site.
