Château de La Roche, Saint-Priest-la-Roche, Loire département, France
http://www.castlesandmanorhouses.com/photos.htm
The castle stands on an island in the lake formed by the Villerest dam . It was built on a rocky platform overlooking the Loire river from a height of 30 metres. During the 1930s, the construction project for the Villerest dam by EDF condemned the château to disappear below the water. It was bought for one franc by the commune and is now situated on an island.

Château d’Harcourt, République Française
(Harcourt Castle, France)

Originally consisting of earthworks, then built with wood and finally in stone, today this impressive 12th-14th century castle is a fine example of medieval architecture, one of the best-preserved in Normandy.
