About Edouard de Verdun
Hello! After spending eight years in the French West Indies, I decided to recover a family owned property and offer holidaymakers the chance to discover all the charms of castle living. I am 39 years old, married and have three sons. This is a beautiful adventure and a new way of life that we can offer for you!
Edouard de Verdun purchased this Castle in 2014

A wonderful paradise!
We spent an amazing week at this wonderful castle together with extended family and friends.
The castle is very well preserved with lots of historical remnants. The kitchen is modern with a giant gas oven, nespresso-machine, microvave oven etc. There’s lots of porcelain, glasses and equipment to make your own food. We did some nice cooking and in addition we had some served brunches and dinner which were very good indeed. Served by the loveliest ladies.
The hosts, Alexia and Edouard are really very nice and helpful with just everything. We really enjoyed the tours where Edouard guided us around the domains, teaching us relevant history.
One day we took a ride on the bikes provided, beautiful landscapes everywhere.
Another day we took a trip to Paris and we also made some trips to the charming cities of Brou, Chateaudun, Bonvalle and Dangeau.
We really recommend this paradise!
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
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.
Wonderful place to stay
We had a fantastic stay at Bouthonvilliers. Everything was just perfect. Thank you for this unforgettable moment, and special thanks to Edouard and Alexia, always very attentive to us.
Thanks a lot, we would love to have you again, see you very soon !!!
