A beautiful 16th Century Manoir set in the French countryside

Former Cognac estate dating back to the 16th Century. Available for weddings, anniversary parties or vow renewals. Book the entire estate or choose one of three beautifully renovated properties.


A beautiful manoir with secluded, pictureque grounds which forms the idyllic backdrop for any wedding ceremony. We have lots of contacts here in Bordeaux who will help create your perfect day at our venue.

Prepare for your wedding day in the exquisite brial suite, knowing your guests are being wowed by the beautiful manor house, landscape and facilities. The large rustic barns safeguard against wet weather plans. Let our wedding planners take all the stress out of arrangeing your special day and just relax and enjoy every moment. We also have a fully qualified local celebrant who can work with you to create a unique and personal ceremony, reflecting your own wishes and beliefs. If you already have a celebrant in mind then we will welcome them too!!

The estate is set within 4 acres of beautiful quiet and secluded French countryside. There are three properties in total, the main house and two additional cottages with a total of 13 bedrooms (and 9 bathrooms) which can sleep up to around 30 people depending on room configurations. There are also two barns which can help with wet weather contingency plans. The largest barn can accommodate around 100 guests for a sit down wedding breakfast if required. We also have a yoga studio, great for pre-wedding relaxation and a large 12m x 6 m heated swimming pool.

The properties have all been recently decorated and comfortably furnished with a mix of modern and traditionally french design.

We are located just under an hour from Bordeaux City and just over an hour from Bordeaux airport.

We've had many weddings here at the Rustic Maison! The venue lends itself well to any special get together with both inside and outside spaces for all weather scenarios. We can work with you to make your special occasion go off with a bang. Please do get in touch to get more information.

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!”.


  • Set in the middle of rolling hills and fields of barley, sunflowers and grapes, this venue is a truly blissful place to spend your big day. Ian and Phil have decorated it with immaculate taste and are the friendliest people you could wish to meet and will go above and beyond. We spent a very happy week playing in the pool, doing yoga in the barn, visiting nearby Cognac and St Emilion and (of course) enjoying long, lazy lunches and dinners, either outside on the terrace or inside in the beautiful dining room. Thank you Ian and Phil! See you again soon!

  • We spent a magical week at this Rustic Maison. The location, in beautiful French countryside, instantly makes you feel relaxed. The house is beautiful and is sympathetically decorated and stocked with everything you need. It is great for children, hide and seek heaven and sturdy enough to withstand their exuberance without you having to worry. The pool area is perfect for our after party brunch, spacious and the barn with the table tennis, darts etc makes it fun for all ages. We hired a chef, Joss for a couple of nights which was a real treat and delicious. We had the most amazing wedding of our dreams and would highly recommend. We will definitely be going back. Thank you Phil & Ian.
