Hachijo Oriental Resort Hotel – B
Although now virtually empty, this stately villa in a large wooded area still breathes the history and the riches of the noble family that had the house built almost a century ago. The villa was built in cottage style in 1928 and is still part of a larger domain, that also contains a chateau and a farm. The house was originally built as a ‘pleasance’ by the son and heir of the owner of the chateau. Even though it hasn’t been lived in for many years, the beautiful villa is still in pristine condition. A few years ago it was the setting for a Belgian television production called ‘Tabula Rasa’. Hence the ‘urbex’ name of the place.
Mother Nature is taking over.
