Jack Nicholson just signed for the second part of "The shining" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081505/). The new movie will be filmed near Grenoble, after I found the ideal place for it :) !
More seriously, this is a Sanatorium, built in 1933 and abandoned in 2009 as the sanatorium has been moved into Grenoble suburb. This sanatorium should be destroyed soon.
This is a shame because the building is very nice, and the scenery from this place is just awesome as you can see on the last picture.
For the anecdote, few years ago during april fools day, a rumour was saying that a Qatari prince bought the building to transform it in a luxury hotel. The rumour has been relayed in the newspapers at that time.
For the aerial photography, I used my EasyStar 2 and the GoPro 3BE, with 2s elapsed time pictures.
Some talented photographers did some picture inside of the buildings. I recommend you a visit to the following albums:
