Vaurseine Tower

Vaurseine Tower, locally known as Tour de Vaurseine, lies in a hamlet of the same name in the Aisne department in the Picardy region in France.

Vaurseine Tower is the last remnant of Vaurseine Castle, which was situated on this small rectangular island in an artificial lake. The, partly restored, tower is said to date back to the 15th century. In its base there are large arrow slits, which even could suggest it might date back to the 13th century. The fief fell under the jurisdiction of the Lords of Montchâlon. This is all the info I was able to find. If you know more; please mail me.

At present Vaurseine Tower is private property. It is situated on an inaccessible island and can not be visited. This is a nice tower, off the beaten track.
