The Castle of Bouthéon

Castle of Bouthéon

In communion with nature, welcome to the Villandry du Forez!


An unusual park

Of course, the park is not as big as the one in Indre-et-Loire but it is more unusual. In addition to the vegetable garden, the French gardens and the rose garden… one can walk in a bamboo grove and come face to face with forgotten animal breeds: a neo-auroch, a Rove goat, or a Milanese curly pigeon. The site overlooks the Forez plain and was the residence of the Bourbons in the 15th century. The entertaining visit gives access to two interpretation centers: one on the Forez (weaving, marine, peasant life) and another on the Loire River with several aquariums.
