Charming guest house on the banks of the Loire

Château le Fresne is located in Bouchemaine in Maine-et-Loire, with all its 19th century charm, where the local stories rubbed shoulders with the great history of aviation.

The renovation of this castle is a family project with the aim of welcoming you to a guest house of character, in the heart in a friendly environment, warm and attentive to your desires, you will have the opportunity to meet several members of our large family who constantly work to offer you quality services. 

We wanted to keep the historical side of this place by playing with a modern decoration, but which also uses old materials and objects from the castle< /strong>.

In addition, this castle was the former home of René Gasnier who lived there for several years, until the end of his days. A space is dedicated to him with the possibility of learning more about his life and his history.

René Gasnier

René Gasnier was born into an Angevin family. He was a French sportsman, but also one of the main promoters of aviation in France.

He actively participated in the birth of the Angers-Avrillé aerodrome and in 1910, he organized the first Angers-Saumur airplane race. René Gasnier's aircraft is presented at the Angers-Marcé regional air museum.

We warmly thank Mr. BLONDEAU duEspace Air Passion Museum to Marcé, for sharing his passion with us as well as rich documents on the life of René Gasnier. 

The character of the decoration

As you stroll through the different spaces of our charming guest house on the banks of the Loire, you will appreciate the authentic decoration , which recalls the story of the Gasnier brothers and which invites you to travel.

The soul of the building has remained intact, the contemporary elements combine perfectly with the old elements and the structure of the castle.
