The first lord of Château de La Bouillerie is known to us was called Geoffroy du Chesne and lived in 1307. The Dufour family then became the owners of Saint-Blaise. In 1523, Jehan Dufour had a chapel dedicated to Saint Blaise built in the seigneurial place of Château de La Bouillerie, and endowed it with the beautiful stained glass window of the Crucifixion (listed as a Historic Monument) which is now its main ornament.

The times that followed were not favourable for Château de La Bouillerie, which was abandoned. It was in 1652 that Jehan Odiau, a lawyer from La Flèche, who had become Lord of La Bouillerie through his marriage to Marie de l’Esperonnière, had the castle renovated.

From 1809 onwards, the owner who was the mayor of La Flèche and sub-prefect, began major embellishment work. The beautiful linden avenue at the arrival, the gloriette and the long terrace date from this period.

The château was then a modest building of classical architecture, with its central building flanked by its two wings. However, it proved too small to accommodate large family gatherings. The choice was made to demolish the north wing and to build a new structure in the Henri II style, with more noble proportions, in its place. The work was completed in 1887.

Since then, these buildings have retained the same configuration, with its successive owners Emmanuel, Bertrand, then Thierry de La Bouillerie, giving priority to work inside the château as well as embellishing the park.
Faced with the damage caused by a violent storm in May 2018, which knocked down more than 80 century-old and bicentury-old trees, Thierry’s children revisited the park’s layout by launching landscaping work and replanting numerous trees and plants in order to restore Château La Bouillerie to its former magnificence.
