Description

This stunning Château is a beautiful example of a 13th Century fortified manoir, set in 40 acres of land, built on the bank of River Lot in the South West of France. We understand how important the big day is and are believers that everything should be exactly how you want it to be.

The most ancient part is the square brick tower built as a strategic asset during the Hundred Years' War. During the 15th -17th centuries, the owners ordered the construction of the main building you see today. The magnificent stone spiral staircase was added most probably during the 15th century. Since being purchased by its current owner, the Château has undergone renovation and restoration work achieving a mix of classic and modern design throughout.

​Providing the beautiful Chateau for dry hire, we don't tie you in to our own caterers or suppliers, but provide the blank canvas so you can project your own style and personality. However, we do have recommended suppliers who we have worked on in the past that we can highly recommend if required.

With over 40 acres of gardens and woodland, this 13th Century Château is at your disposal. So bring your own florist, stylists and caterers and create the perfect wedding day.

Lovingly restored and now available to book the Chateau is full of character and is the perfect location to spend a relaxing and indulgent wedding day with family and friends.

Ah, Nouvelle-Aquitaine! Home to Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes. This is quite possibly the ideal wedding destination for any happy couple.

Aquitaine is home to Bordeaux and it is more than possible for you to get married near to the breath-taking Dordogne, or even near the Basque Villages. This is along the Spanish border and there is so much for you to see and do. The hot springs that are in Nouvelle-Aquitaine are not to be missed and this is great if you want to pamper yourself after the big day. Poitou-Charentes is on the Atlantic Coast and the sandy white beaches are culturally stimulating. Famous for its beautiful architecture as well as its incredible food and wine, This region has it all. Castles from yesteryear adorn every hilltop and the region is a must for anyone who enjoys their food. Local specilaities include truffles, foie gras, prunes and of course wine.

Of course, you also have the Marias Poitevan wetlands, and this is not to be missed either. You can get to this area via train and flights also run to this area as well. This is easily one of the most beautiful areas in the whole of France and the activities there include horse riding, wine-tasting and relaxing on some of the sandy shores. The region features many destinations with cultural and touristic significance locations like the Citadel of Blaye, Saint-Emilion, La Rochelle, Aquarium, Arcachon and the Dune du Pilat. All of these areas have a rich historical background that could be considered when choosing wedding venues in the region. Nothing can quite compare to the experience you will get when you visit this location, and it is one of the best places for you to say those special words, “I Do!”.

Reviews

  • This venue offered a perfect wedding destination in the region of the Lot. It was situated a short drive outside the village this old mill provided a perfect setting. We had a good sized room overlooking the river and the original mill and the bed was extremely comfortable. There was a terrace alongside the river with facilities for fishing and on a higher level a swimming pool which was great for all our guests to relax. Parking was on site close to the entrance accessed up a short flight of steps. The French hosts were friendly and welcoming and provided us with a good breakfast of yoghurts, bread, croissants, meats and cheeses. Our hostess recommended a quirky chateau in the village for our evening meal the day before the wedding which was amazing. This proved to be a memorable experience not to be missed. The hosts were very accomodating and helped with the details on the day and we would certainly recommend this venue to other couples.

  • Absolutely magical place. Everything is an invitation to relax, to pleasure .. the castle is beautiful, both inside and outside. The whole area is guarded by nymphs who watch every passage, and nook, from the pool to the garden, through the path along the river, littered with fragrant currants and lavender ... definitely a little piece of paradise. We do not want to leave ...Such a beautiful location to get married and would highly recommend.
