The Château d’Oiron is located in Oiron, in the Deux-Sèvres département of western France. It has its origins in the 15th century war with the English for control of France when a victorious Charles VII of France gave the domain and great forest of Oiron to Guillaume Gouffier who became governor of Touraine. This château is the background for Charles Perrault’s fairy tale, Puss in Boots. King Louis XIV’s mistress, Madame de Montespan was one of the residents in the place.
