HOUSE TOUR: The fairytale château of Les Trois Garcons

Very inspiring place to be: Chateau de la Goujeonnerie in the Vendée, France. The trio, named Les Trois Garcons, behind one of London's most opulent restaurants have worked their magic on an unloved French chateau. Photography by Paul Raeside. Les Trois Garcons acquired Chateau de la Goujeonnerie in 2006 in a derelict state and have since restored it with 21st century comforts while respecting it's past. The main chateau consists of 7 double ensuite bedrooms, 1 single ensuite bedroom and 2 single bedrooms with bathrooms across a hallway. 

Stefan Karlson, Hassan Abdullah and Michel Lasserre met in the early 1990s and went on to launch an antique store (Maison Trois Garcons), a successful restaurant (Les Trois Garcons), a hot London bar (Loungelover) and an international interior design practice (L3G Designs) before they found and fell in love with Château de la Goujeonnerie in the Vendée, France in 2006. Built in 1872 by the architect Arsene Charier for the local mayor and his family, it boasted 22 rooms over three floors, its own lake and views of rolling green hills in the distance. Sadly though, it had fallen into a state of disrepair; so the trio spent five years re-plumbing, re-wiring and restoring it from top to bottom. Today, when the three are not staying to enjoy the rooms and heated pool themselves, they rent out the chateau for holidays and parties.
