A unique opportunity awaits those who book their special day at this Château. The venue provides an unforgettable experience for a special occasion, and many options are available to create a one-of-a-kind event. Our wonderful staff can help to make your dreams come true.
Your ceremony can be held in the open air or in the château’s 15th century Lord’s chapel. Or, you can get married in the church in the village, and afterward lead the wedding party up to the castle.
Receptions held on the great lawn in front of the moat offer a superb view of the castle. On the other side of the drawbridge, within fortified walls, an open-air courtyard can accommodate an aperitif or buffet for 75 guests. After the toasting ceremonies, everyone is invited into the château.
Throughout the château, you can set up music, food, and bar stations. For intimate dinner parties, guests will be invited to sit down in the Lord’s dining room for a fantasy come true. Yes, there are thrones from the 15th-century table in front of the enormous fireplace. Yes, there are crowns for the couple in the thrones to wear. The massive medieval chandelier and armor are sauce for the goose... This room can accommodate 14 people at the main table, and 28 if we use two tables. Tables set up in the courtyard can accommodate 40, and 75 on the front lawn.
The village boasts beautiful pastoral landscapes along the Aveyron river with wonderful views of the château from its historic bridge, which is next to an excellent Michelin-starred restaurant. The château is a venue only, and with the exception of the tower suite, accommodations for guests are available at gites in the village.
The Château is a historic landmark normally open to the public. About 20,000 visitors every season enjoy a self-guided tour throughout the fortress. They discover the history, architecture, and exhibition spaces of contemporary art within it. People often remark that there is so much life within the ancient stones, and they are overwhelmed by the experience. Your guests will be invited to take a complimentary guided tour or follow their feet to explore on their own. The château’s rich history begins in the 9th-century pre-Romanesque chapel. The bathrooms are located next to a 12th-century prison.
On the day of your event part of the property is privatized for your wedding party at noon. Our lovely upper garden area is the perfect place for an “inner circle” luncheon. This area has a cool, medieval gazebo, plenty of courtyard seating, space for a buffet, and convenient access to the wedding parties' private dressing rooms. The space within the castle for the wedding party includes a huge bathroom, a kitchen, and a sitting room with a large dining table. There is wifi and a crib area. The pool area is yours for a spectacular photoshoot. It is also an extremely fun place for a pool party the day after. Swimming in the “moat” pool next to the vaulting tower with the view of the landscape is guaranteed to be a precious memory.
Prices start at €1,500 for an open-air reception from 8PM-midnight, (plus set-up time), and accommodates up to 75 people or €2,000 for the exclusive use of the castle. Included is access to private areas on the day of the event for the wedding party and caterer. At 6 PM guests have free municipal parking, just above the castle and access to the property until midnight. The principal reception areas are on the main lawn, in front of the moat, and on the main courtyard, weather permitting. Bar and buffet stations may be set up within the château as well, and there is plenty of room to have the whole party inside. The couple of honour receive a special price (-20%) for one night in the romantic tower suite with champagne and breakfast. A château operations manager will act as a liaison with your wedding planner and there is an excellent commercial kitchen for your caterer.
