This website is a place of initiation, an invitation to discover the Art of Life.

Its name pays tribute to the dragonfly, our universal emblem, evocative of the perpetual motion of Life. Indeed, Nature lies at the Centre of everything and brings us back to our own Centre.

Throughout my projects, I have always aspired to create and to convey this Art of Life. I wished to break with tradition in order to form today this ecosystem of well-being, while respecting Nature and its cycles, the land, the Men – farmers, artisans, artists, producers and freethinkers… – and the beautiful know-how.

Through the Domaine des Etangs, located in the Charente Limousine region, a place of Life and of well-being spread over 2,500 acres, in equilibrium between the Sky and the Earth.

Through the Collection Dragonfly, a universal and universalist collection of contemporary and ethnic art, minerals, objects and books, all channelling a message of wisdom, knowledge and heritage.

Through Créations Dragonfly, a line of objects that place the spotlight on the know-how of artisans, respectful of time and of natural resources. Through books, a selection of products and objects related to Nature and its observation, as well as specialties by local producers… which will soon complement the range.

And, today, through opening this “window”, dragonfly.fr, which will, I hope, reach your heart and your eyes, perhaps fill you with wonder, make you smile and, above all, reconnect you with the essential principles of Nature.

Domaine des Etangs

Home to our roots and Art of Life

Set in the heart of the Charente, the Domaine des Etangs ranges over 2,500 acres of preserved Nature, spread across forests, pasture and ponds.

It is a haven of Life where one can enjoy one of the seven suites in the 11th century château, in the Longere Farmhouse which contains the four seasons suites, or in one of the six farmhouse Cottages across the Domaine.

It is a haven of Life where the hands of men have created a world of harmony. A world in which a balanced Nature helps you refocus. Take the time to stroll through the spiral-shaped vegetable garden, to admire the vegetables which today or tomorrow will adorn your plate in the Michelin-star restaurant of the Domaine. Indulge in the soothing treatments provided by the reconnection and wellness centre. Listen to the lightest of laughs throughout the estate and rekindle your childhood spirit as you contemplate the works of art on display in La Laiterie.

It is a haven of Life where the rhythm of time is content with following that of the seasons and of nature. Although each stone, each roof has been carefully restored according to tradition, the great variety of the contemporary works of art dotting it endow the Domaine with a sense of in-between:

A quiet and peaceful place which brings together yesterday and tomorrow.

THE DOMAINE DES ETANGS AND THE CRAFTSMEN

The Domaine des Etangs is the result of the work of craftsmen. Stonecutters, cabinetmakers, ship carpenters, gardeners…

their hands and know-how have built the castle and its farmhouses on the land and surrounding forests. It is their labour that makes it possible for us to welcome you here today.
With Créations Dragonfly, we are pursuing this timeless journey between their talent and our desire to share.
