Château de Bouges

Come and appreciate the charm of Bouges chateau and its refined, 18th-century atmosphere in the heart of the Berry region. Its elegant architecture is matched by the outstanding furniture that was carefully selected by the last owners of the château.

Understanding Bouges chateau

• A copy of the Petit Trianon in Versailles? In 1759, Charles-François Leblanc de Manarval, an ironmaster and director of the Royal Manufacturer of Cloth in Châteauroux, had the chateau built in freestone. The Italian layout is attributed to Jacques-Ange Gabriel.

• A careful reconstruction. Henri Viguier, the director of a Parisian department store, and his wife Renée bought Bouges in 1917. She was an elegant society figure and tastefully redecorated and refurnished the chateau, and her husband, a keen horseman, had work carried out to modify the outbuildings. They bequeathed the property to the State in 1968.
