Unforgettable holidays in a French château.

Property type castle
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


Minimum Stay

About the property

An 18th century chateau near Paris, 20 to 32 persons

An 18th century chateau set an hour and a half from Paris and from castles of the Loire.

Sleeps 20.

11 bedrooms

6 bathrooms with wc

Rental type: Chateau

We propose if required renting an additional cottage in the lovely outbuildings of the castle for up to 12 additional people.

Chateau de Bouthonvilliers is located in the Eure-et-Loir department of France called Perche.

Inevitably, the focus of most visits to this region is the famous Chartres cathedral which is a protected world heritage site. The town of Chartres itself also contains an interesting old town that is a pleasure to mill around.

The most well-known castle in Eure-et-Loir is located at Chateaudun, and as with Chartres this landmark is only the tip of the iceberg, as the town itself offers a wealth of ancient architectural triumphs.

About 1h from Bouthonvilliers you can visit the most famous castles of the Loire valley : Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny...

Nearby Senonches is one of the most important towns in the Perche Regional Natural Park and is surrounded by extensive forests, which have established it as a very popular place for walking and cycling.

Alternatively, you are only around 120 km from the Eiffel tower, and all the romance of central Paris.

We had an amazing time at Chateau Bouthonvilliers! The chateau is enchanting, the park is peaceful, the pool is relaxing and Edward is charming. Edward provided breakfasts for us (extra charge) and 3 dinners (extra charge). The dinner were among the best meals we had in France. Edward wants his guests to have a true french country experience. We loved our stay!

Live like gentry

  • 5 of 5

Chateau Bouthonvilliers was a unique and elegant experience. We three couples had the entire place to ourselves, and enjoyed the beautiful sitting rooms, outdoor sitting space (for our cocktail wines) and the pool. While it has been updated with later 20th century electric and plumbing, it looks much as it must have looked in the late 19th century. If you want a Four Seasons style of modernity, then this may not be the place for you. If you appreciate architecture and history, and the style of French country living, then this is a great option.

The location was great for us - half hour from Chartes, and a longer drive (hour and a half) to the big chateaus along the Loire river (Cheverny, Chenouceau, Chambord, etc.). Only five minutes from the charming town to Brou (restaurants and groceries) and about 15 minutes from Chateaudun, which has a don't-miss late middle ages chateau.

The stay was made tremendous by Edouard, the owner, who lives about 100 yards from the main house. He looked after our every need and made our stay easy and comfortable. We had him provide us simple breakfasts each day (croissants, coffee, yogurst, etc.) and did three of our dinners there. They were, frankly, the best three meals we had during our 10 nights in France. Whether you do the buffet or a gourmet dinner, Edouard's preparation, care and quality are something you should not miss.

Une semaine idyllique

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer une semaine avec enfants et petits enfants dans un cadre merveilleux.

Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par nos hôtes.

Nous nous sommes sentis tout de suite comme dans notre maison de famille.

Nous avons fait des ballades quotidiennes dans le parc très bien entretenu et nous avons visité les villages aux alentours..

Très agréable !

  • 5 of 5

La propriété est aussi belle à l’intérieur qu'à l’extérieur et la prestation excellente pour un groupe ou une famille.

Un très grand nombre de chambres et de grandes belles pièces pour se retrouver.

L’environnement est grand, arboré, calme et bien entretenu par le propriétaire.

Région très sympa avec plein de choses à faire.

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances très agréable et conserverons un très bon souvenir de l’accueil chaleureux du propriétaire.

Une vraie semaine de repos en famille

  • 5 of 5

Qui n'a jamais rêvé de vivre la vie de château !

Nous avons eu cette chance en famille pour les vacances de Pâques grâce à l'accueil prévenant des propriétaires. Des volumes hors norme décorés avec goût, un parc immense pour des balades à pied et de nombreuses activités pour les enfants ie pêche dans l'étang, cueillette des légumes dans le potager ou baignade dans la piscine ... sans compter les nombreuses visites à proximité telle que la Cathédrale de Chartres ou les châteaux de la Loire. Une vraie semaine de détente dans un havre de paix !! Mention spéciale pour le délicieux civet de lapin que nous avez préparé le maître des lieux pour l'anniversaire de notre dernière fille. Merci pour tout.
