About Gwendoline

We are a French-British couple, and have taken on to renovate the château on the property. We live on site, but not in the same accommodation. Therefore, we will be there to welcome you, answer your questions and suggest activities if you wish so. However, if you'd rather just get the keys and enjoy your stay on you own, we will leave you to it.

Gwendoline purchased this House in 2016

Why Gwendoline chose Vautorte

We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it for the first time. We could see its full potential both as a home and as a business to live from, and we decided to jump in and take the chance!

What makes this House unique

The private woods on the grounds are definitely the best feature of our property. Taking a walk in the woods early in the morning is the best way to start the day and feel good within oneself.
