Château de Fontenay

Located north of Orléans, in an agricultural region called La Beauce, 70 miles from Paris, this impressive 16th century manor has been a landmark of the village of Fontenay-sur-Conie for more than 400 years.

A British art-collecting retail entrepreneur bought it completely furnished. But its rooms needed an update, so interior designer Tino Zervudachi and his team from Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi were appointed to fulfill the task.

If you'd like to read the full story behind this Château just go here.

  1. Wow, that tree-lined drive up to the property is breathtaking! Lounging by that gorgeous pool would be pretty fantastic right about now. Another great find!

  2. I'm a big fan of Tino Zervudachi's work, and I agree, the pool area is fabulous.
    He decorated a house in Rio, another fantastic work I read about in AD.
    Beautiful post.
