Your ceremony and reception:

The Estate offers many beautiful options for your celebrations. If you would like an al-fresco celebration then the area under the main balcony of the honeymoon suite is a favourite! There is also the front of the Château which is equally beautiful and then an additional large lawn behind the picturesque swimming pool with views of the hills and valley beyond. There is ample room to erect a marquee which we can help to organise on request.

Our large hall with its exposed wooden beams can cater for up to 70 guests seated or for larger groups for dancing. It leads out on to an extensive terrace with views of the Chateau.

During your stay, you and your guests can enjoy two kitchens, dining area, library/living room, hall, two swimming pools and beautiful grounds. We can provide children's cots and mattresses in the rooms at no extra cost and several of the rooms are perfect for families.

On the estate there are two swimming pools, surrounded by sun loungers, plenty of grounds to explore and our friendly donkey, Vanille, loves to come and say hello!

For catering and other suppliers, we can help arrange this for you throughout your stay. We can help organise your wedding package and catering and also provide suggestions and support for the rest of your stay as well. We also have a list of recommended suppliers which will help guide you.

At our Enchanting Medieval Château we are entirely flexible and so can offer as much or as little support as you require - meaning you have the freedom and flexibility to do whatever you wish to make your stay just perfect.

If you did need extra accommodation for additional guests, we're lucky enough to have a guest house at the end of the Chateau's driveway which can accommodate another nine guests and we also have lots of hotels and excellent Airbnb accommodation all nearby. There are numerous other properties in the village which are available on Airbnb and there are some lovely hotels in Souillac which is just five minutes away. In addition, there is a pretty campsite a fifteen minute walk from the Château or you may even wish to choose to have glamping tents in the grounds of the Château itself.

Location

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 ad the most beautiful location to get married in France. 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, so every wedding will be full of amazing cuisine and your guests will not be disappointed. If it is the classic French chateau that you are after for your wedding in France then you have to conside Nouvelle Aquitaine and the surrounding areas!

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 for wedding venues 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

  • Have just spent a week at the chateau celebrating my daughters wedding. If you are looking for that fairy tale wedding then I recommend this chateau.
    It is very rustic and has a lot of charm.
    The grounds are superb with two pools and plenty of outside space.
    We all had a very enjoyable week and would like to do it all over again.
