Open the gates of the Château de la Boutinière, and step into a fairytale…

The ancient woodland, the panoramic views of the “English” park, the ornate Victorian hunting lodge, and the cosy farm buildings, all nestle in the arms of our exquisite Château home. Our dream is to breathe life back into this incredible building, restore it to its former glory, and lovingly transform it into the perfect fairytale wedding and holiday gîte destination.

This is the start of our Château adventure. We’d love to share it with you.
