The château de Boutemont in Ouilly-le-Vicomte, Normandy was originally an 11th century fortress, but the current building was completed in the 16th century.
Listed as a Historic Monument in France, the building is famous for its unusual half timbered exterior, as well as its stunning gardens which have been listed as 'outstanding' by EBTS.
