The Castle : its history

The fiefdom and seigneury of Couetterie are attested in the 15th century. In 1445, Guillaume de Couette was called Lord of Couetterie.

In the 17th century, the domain was transferred by marriage to the Vanssay family and then in 1819 to the Guéroust de Freuville family. The domain then included the farm below the castle, BeauRegard, la Fredonnière, Biou, Beauglant, the Gué-Gilet mill and the Salles mill.

Around 1870, has been the property of Henri de la Porte. Couetterie belonged to the Count of La Porte aux Loups until the beginning of the 20th century. The castle was largely rebuilt in the 18th century; the southwest wing, perhaps even more recent, may have been rebuilt on a large old room from the 15th or 16th century, the northeast wing still has a 17th century staircase. The main body of the dwelling was raised to create a floor in 1870 (date worn) by the family of La Porte aux loups, which stamps the central bays of its coat of arms, worn by a wild man and a lion, topped by the county crown.

The Castle : today

Before the First World War, the castle was acquired by the Boisanger family and remained there until the 1980s when it was sold. After almost 30 years, the estate returns to the family.

Today the castle opens its doors to you and welcomes you to organize, in all exclusivity, your events in the warm atmosphere of a family house.
