    L'hôtel Acary de la Riviêre
    This Villa, built by Field Marshall Viscount Henri Dominique Acary de la Riviera (a resident of Montreuil) in 1818, was described as one of the most delightful residences in Montreuil. It was bought by Baron Eugene Fould-Springer in 1928 and after his death in 1929, his wife Mary (Marie) continued to live there, re-marrying to Frank Wooster in 1933. The Mansion was bequeathed to the city on 9 November 1973 by Mary Wooster and after her death in 1978, became "The Franck and Mary Wooster Museum of Hope".

    Also bequeathed to the town was the 14 bedroom annex to L'hôtel Acary, which is now a hotel and restaurant known as the Chateau de Montreuil.

    Abbey Palace of Royaumont, near Chantilly, France
    Abbey Palace of Royaumont, near Chantilly, France
    Abbey Palace of Royaumont near Chantilly, is a late 18th-century mansion designed by Louis Le Masson for the Abbot of Royaumont, Henri Eléonore Le Cornut de Balivière, chaplain of Louis XVI. The actual abbey was destroyed in the French Revolution, but the Abbey Palace survived.

    The mansion changed hands until it was eventually bought by Baron and Baroness Eugène Fould-Springer in 1923. Their grandson Nathaniel de Rothschild immediately set out to restore the "magnificent property" and give it a "soul."

    The Fould-Springers carefully selected works of art, furniture, lighting, clocks and ceramics that reflected the stately beauty of the house.

    Although Abbey Palace hasn't been regularly lived in by the descendants of Baron and Baroness Fould-Springer since the late 1980s, it remains a pride of the family. Rothschild says in the Christies auction catalogue, that he long looked for the best way of preserving the integrity of the property, a solution that he has now found. It is to become a high-quality seminar centre. This requires modernisation and, as a result, the contents of the Abbey Palace were sold at auction in September 2011 raising over €7M.

    This video was produced by Christies as part of a guide to the contents of the house.
    Notes 
    • The only daughter and heiress of the very wealthy Austrian industrialist Baron Gustav von Springer, Marie Cécile, Baroness von Springer was married in 1905 in Vienna to French banker, Eugène Fould. (Eugène was a member of the European banking house, "Fould Oppenheim" and grandson of Napoleon III's Finance Minister, Achille Fould) . Eugène, through marriage, obtained the title of 'Baron' and was from that point on called Baron de Fould-Springer.

      In 1926 the couple acquired the Abbatial Palais of Royaumont, where they proceeded to house and display their numerous paintings and objects of art.

      In 1929 Baron Eugène de Fould-Springer died and four years later, his widow married Frank Wooster. They lived alternatively in Royaumont, Montreuil-sur-Mer and Vienna. In 1938, after the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany, they left Vienna indefinitely and travelled via France to Canada, where they then spent the remaining war years.

      After the end of WW2, Marie Cécilie (aka Mary Wooster) spent much of the remaining part of her life in Florence. The Abbatial Palais was occupied by the family of her daughter, Liliane.
