1. Brissac Castle, Loire Valley, France
With soaring gothic towers, Brissac Castle is the tallest castle in France and the most haunted! It was owned by nobleman Jacques de Breze and his unfaithful wife Charlotte in the late 15th century. Charlotte was so indiscreet with her affair that on discovering her transgression, Jacques murdered both her and her lover. Jacques was said to be driven so mad by the moaning of the lovers’ ghosts that he soon sold the castle and fled.
