BACKGROUND ON THE CHATEAU
In 1955, a man named Manuel Gonzalez de Andia y Talleyrand (Duke of Dino) fell in love with La Chatonniere and bought it. He fixed it up and raised his family there. However, his daughter, Beatrice de Andia, saw the real potential in it thirty years later and began creating the gardens, completing them in 2010.

The castle is filled with many relics that Manuel obtained from a late uncle of him who had gathered them from the Prince of Benevant as well as many other important figures in this time. The creator of the gardens has traveled to nearly 150 countries and through these, she came up with the names for the gardens.

While the castle is no longer inhabited, it is still owned by the family. The gardens are rented out by companies for different conventions and such. The inside is closed off to the public and no indoor pictures were able to be found. The castle is quite mysterious and auspicious as not much is known about its history prior to the current owners lineage. The gardens have always remained the focal point of the grounds.

The grounds provide services for different school activities and events such as musical performances and field trips.
