Our beautiful Renaissance castle has been lovingly renovated to provide the best of modern comforts within a historic building

You and your guests will indulge in the “Château Experience” – living in a beautiful old building with modern kitchens and bathrooms. You will also experience the French rural lifestyle, including gastronomical and vinicultural delights that will ensure you have the time of your life.


Our beautiful Renaissance castle has been lovingly renovated to provide the best of modern comforts within a historic building. Each private guest suite offers bathrooms with all its bedrooms as well as areas for relaxing and eating. Imagine privatising the entire 20 acre estate so that your guests can enjoy the forest and formal gardens; the pool and petanque rink; the banquet hall and bar as well as the family chapel and library. It is an exceptional wedding venue dating from the 16th Century which has been recently refurbished to offer 5*self-catering accommodation. Imagine the homely ambience of a boutique apart-hotel within a grand Château where each private guest suite has its own unique furniture
and art creating individual character.

At this Château we host very special events from celebrity weddings to the showcasing of luxury cars. In France food and wine need little in the way of introduction, however, you will want to ensure that your guests experience the gastronomy of the Anjou-Touraine region at its best. Our Chef creates the most wonderful French cuisine to the highest possible standards using natural local ingredients. Each course is served as if you were in
an exclusive restaurant, not at a function. We have absolutely no doubt that we offer the best catered receptions in the Loire Valley, however if you do wish to provide your own caterer then that is also absolutely fine. The Château carefully selects the finest and most suitable wines of the region within your budget to accompany your meals. Tastings of both food and wine take place during one of your planning visits to the Château. We also offer fresh seafood buffets, hog roasts and daily breakfasts of fresh local patisseries and dairy produce. Our Banquet Hall can seat up to 180 Guests in a long table format or 150 Guests with a Round Table Format (we can install a Barnum on our lawns for larger dinner groups).

When booking the accommodation at Château de Jalesnes, it is recommended to privatise the full Chateau Estate, including the grounds, 20 Acres of Forest, Banquet Hall, `Stone Domed Roof Chapel (which can seat up to 120 guests and can cater for more with standing space), 20m Swimming Pool and formal gardens, giving you and your guests, your very own Chateau for your dream Wedding. We partner with several local hotels and Chambre d’Hotes to ensure sufficient accommodation for all your guests. Depending on diary commitments it may be possible to rent the Chateau owners’ private apartments, with a further option of folding beds to be added to specific suites to increase the occupancy. Contact us to discuss these options in more detail.

The Chateau has 57 beds in 27 Bedrooms (all with own ensuites) in 17 Suites; (Four Studio Suites; Five One Bedroom Suites; Five Two Bedroom Suites;Two Three Bedroom Suites and the stand alone Clock Tower that has Two Bedrooms and a Mezzanine floor with three single beds sharing a bathroom with one of the bedrooms). We can add up to 12 fold out beds into Suites if clients require and we provide baby cots free of charge.

Our formal garden includes an orchard, fragrant garden, spice garden and vegetable patch together with large lawn expanses ideal for all your wedding photographs with family, friends and of course you as newly weds. We also have Celebrants and an English speaking Priest we have partnerships with and are available for ceremonies. We would love to help you make your wedding dream come true and have a list of recommended suppliers to help you make your big day perfect.

Pays de la LoireWedding VenuesBelieve it or not, the Chateaux of the Loire was actually founded in the Centre region of France, and not in Pays de la Loire. That being said, that does not mean that this isn’t one of the most spectacular wedding destinations around.

This area is known for having breath-taking fairy tale castles and it is also known for having a rich and cultural history. Another thing that you should know about this area is that it extends from the Atlantic coast! For that reason, if you want to get married with a stunning castle right behind you with the finest wine around then this is a location you should certainly consider.

Wine is very famous here, as this region is home to the Loire Valley, and this is often referred to as being the garden of France. This whole area is agriculturally rich, and it is very countryside themed as well. With rolling hills, it’s safe to say that this region is home to some of the most spectacular sunsets in the whole area. For that reason, if you want a wedding that has a scenic backdrop that you’ll never forget, this is the one for you.


  • Breathtaking location. Perfect for weddings / events.
    Great hosts, lovely surroundings.
    Highly recommend it!

  • A little bit tucked away from the busy tourist route, but well worth a few night stays. The rooms are spacious and absolutely beautifully decorated. A new wing is about to open in spring 2019 adding to the already generous capacity. The place rocks it for a destination weddings!!!
