This post card souvenir shows a very special aerial view of Chateau of Saveilles at the time when very old, large and high chestnut trees, about three hundred years old, cast a large shadow on the main courtyard of the castle.
Unfortunately on December 26th 1999 hurricane "Martin" blew out over the west part of France, in particular over Charente and Charente-Maritime area; these 8 chestnut trees have been pulled down by the strenghth of the wind running at nearly 170 km/h. They left bomb holes in the courtyard!
We will wait for a very long period of time before we could see again such trees so big, so high, so marvellous!
