Chic Château Boucéel

I came across these photos of Château Boucéel near Mont Saint Michel in France and thought they were so pretty that they must be shared. The home was just opened up to guests as a bed and breakfast so now you can stay there too in the main house or one of the cottages. C’est si bon!

    That is an absolutely gorgeous post, thank you. But the house looks too exquisite, too refined to share. It would be a magical experience staying there n’est ce pas!

    what a magical looking place – straight out of a period movie.

    by the way – i responded to your question on my blog but not sure if you checked back. just in case you didn’t the colour is black beauty. to me it’s more black than soot which actually looks like a midnight blue in comparison.

    hello beautiful! love the geese on the front drive. in our very modern world, i cannot even imagine what it was like to live in such a state of grace and opulence.

    How can you not love France? C’est Parfait!

    HC –

    I was blessed to be able to take my children to France some years ago and we visited Mont Saint Michel. (Phillip, then 15, took fabulous photos!)

    We drove and drove and out of, what seemed like nowhere, appeared Mont Saint Michel…I likened it to when Dorothy suddenly saw the City of Oz.

    It was a spectular sight.

    even better at night

    This is completley off-topic, but seeing those lovely Louis XVI chairs reminded me. Do you know of any sources for reasonably-priced Louis XVI style chairs, other than Wisteria and Ballard Designs? A local NYC source would be even better. I’ve been searching for a pair for my tiny studio and just hate buying furniture off the internet – no ability to “kick the tires” so to speak. Thanks for your input!

    Rose C’est La Vie – If it’s just the two of them there, I guess they have room for guests. I think it would be fun to own a bed and breakfast and meet interesting people from all over the world. Just as long as I had someone else to get up early and make breakfast!

    Tartanscot – I may be planning that vacation right behind you!

    Kay – Thanks for the paint name! I will check it out. We have to use Soot in my bachelorette project because she has navy in the entry rug and a navy sofa so the blue in it will coordinate. But for the next project, I will think about Black Beauty!

    Karen – You and me both!

    The Sweet Life with Olives – It looks so beautiful but at the same time very welcoming and comfortable. That’s what I like best!

    The Antiques Diva – I agree!

    Susan – What a lovely family vacation! I hope Phillip appreciated it!

    Cathy – I bought a few from Oly which you can get at Calypso Home but they aren’t cheap. I would check out Penine Hart Antiques. She has great prices and pieces and if you are looking for something, she can keep an eye out for you. Otherwise, you may have to go to CT. Good luck!

    Lovely. Those ducks are kind of the icing on top.

    Beautiful place, a full immersion in French culture, so elegant and so serene.

    I imagine the different country homes described in that famous Gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho are very similar to these interior spaces.

    That guilded mirror is gorgeous! I love that part of France…enchanting, as is this b & b, I can only imagine.

    I wish I had a house with windows like those. Really tall, with flooding light.

    To me, nothing says feminine, inviting and comfort like cream and light dusty pink. The dining room is great.

    I would travel to France just to stay at this beautiful chateau. Imagine strolling through each room and enjoying that garden! Thanks for posting this bit of sunshine on a rainy day!

    Love what I presume is the library room. So warm…just want to fold up in the chair by the fireplace! Absolutely love the ducks marching in single file in front! cheers, -susan
