Surrounded by historic charm, rustic features and a bohemian ambience, this French Château has everything you need for an unforgettable celebration.

With boutique onsite accommodation, beautiful period features, woodland and gardens as well as its own Grand Event Hall, the estate is a true haven of peace in the midst of stunning natural surroundings.


An enchanting Château set in beautiful woodland and endless greenery. Scents of wisteria and lavender and sounds of birdsong will welcome you when you arrive at this haven of tranquillity in the heart of Aveyron in the south of France. We offer a secluded and magical place for your weddings and special celebrations and also cater for group holidays and romantic couples’ retreats.

The Château is lovingly cared for by Julia, originally from Australia, who, as an artist and designer by trade, has renovated this magnificent estate to create a wooded wonderland with its beautiful bedrooms, quintessential rustic French period features, walled garden, peaceful swimming pool, stunning Event Hall, woodlands and seasonal lake.

Ideally located north of Toulouse and only a twenty minute drive from Grand Figeac, Villenueve d'Aveyron and Cajarc, this stunningly beautiful château is on the door-step of some of the most beautiful ancient towns in France. The château sits peacefully in the centre of its 15 acres, surrounded by century old trees, walled gardens, woodland stream and oak forests. The property is completely private and perfectly secluded, while remaining close to amenities.

The Château is also available for exclusive rental, meaning you will have complete, private access to the entire estate. If you are dreaming of a bohemian, rustic French wedding without compromising on style and modern facilities, then Mas de Pradié ticks all the boxes. Hold your ceremony under the decorated arch to the walled garden, celebrate with your loved ones with a cocktail reception overlooking lavender and wisteria and dine and dance the night away in our dedicated Event Hall.

The Château was built in the mid eighteenth century and its large barn, which today has been converted into an impressive Event Hall, once served as a royal relay station for horses, meaning that royalty often stopped here on their way north. It was also home to an old mill that operated when the lake flooded seasonally into the ancient cave system below.

Our renovated Grant Event Hall, once a royal livery, can now accommodate up to 80 guests for a sit down ceremony or wedding breakfast.

Meanwhile, the gardens offer stunning alfresco options in a place harmonious with nature. Hold your ceremony on the terrace, with the chapel as a backdrop or out in the walled gardens with the beautiful gateway leading up to the fountain setting the scene. For your reception, use one of our many outdoor spaces or the Grand Event Hall, with its separate facilities and catering kitchen.

The front of the chateau has a large flat terrace perfect for a cocktails party, an outdoor lunch or dinner, and in summer the terrace stays shaded by the trees. A fountain sits just in front of the terrace providing the cooling bubbling sound of water. If you wish for a large marquee to be set up for your wedding we have several options within the parklands for you to consider for larger guest numbers.

We are very proud of our exquisite petite chapel, available for a private ceremony or even a private dinner for two.

It is recommended to hire a wedding planner for your special day, but if you wish to plan your own celebration we can provide you with a selection of quality service providers covering all your celebration requirements. You are free to use caterers and suppliers of your choice. The Château is available weekends or for weekday weddings, you are free to choose. We recommend staying at least three nights at the Chateau so you have time to relax and create the perfect environment for your perfect day.

Our price listed includes accommodation for up to 18 people for 3 nights, use of the Grand Events Hall, plus full use of venue, pool, gardens etc.

Occitanie Wedding VenuesOccitanie is a mixture of Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées. Languedoc-Roussillon is known for their Mediterranean cuisine and it stretches from the famous Rhone River to the Spanish border.

This region can offer a great climate with an absolutely stunning coastline. You will also find that Carcassonne is here, and the Canal Du Midi is the perfect place for you to spend your first moments as husband and wife. The other region here is Midi-Pyrénées. This takes its name from The Pyrénées, which is the mountain which runs right through it. It is actually the largest region in France when you look at the size, and the rivers there are phenomenal. This alone makes it a sublime wedding location, so if you want to take some spectacular photos by the river or if you want the best, city-scenic backdrop then this is certainly the right location for you.

Getting there is very easy, and for the coastal properties there are often boat rides available if you wanted to treat your guests to something really special. This is just one of the many reasons why so many people choose this location as their number one wedding destination, and the natural scenery is not to be missed.
