Overlooking the vineyards and forests of the local town, the Chateau, built in the 14th century on the site of an 11th century wooden manor, dominates the relief of the surrounding hills and countryside. At just 25 minutes from the city centre, the estate is a stone's throw away from Bordeaux and yet far from the hustle and bustle of city life - a perfect place to plan your destination wedding in France. For your wedding, offer charm, authenticity and serenity to your loved ones for a refined and elegant reception.
The north tower of the castle suffered a catastrophe in 1962 when a fire ravaged most of the interior and the roof of the castle. It lay in ruins till 2019, when it was given new life with local materials originating from the estate. The estate now boasts of :
The north tower:
2 banquet halls - 100 m² and 78 m²
A panoramic rooftop - 240 m²
Catering area - 20 m²
Chateau gardens - 1500 m²
Elevator Access to the rooftop and the halls.
1 summer banquet hall - 160 m²
Terrace - 200 m²
Catering area - 30 m²
We know that you'd love to show your appreciation for those who took time off of their busy schedules to be there on your special day. How about an innovative blending workshop for your guests? They would create their own blend of Bordeaux wine from a variety of vats ,put it into bottles, cork it and finally label it with a personalised label saying something like "The day just got better with your presence - Mr. and Mrs. Newlyweds"! Sounds interesting ? Let's just say that it's possible here at the estate !
The Chateau is believed to be producing wine since the early 15th century. Today, the estate produces 2 white wines, 3 reds and a rosé. A conscious effort has been made towards sustainability and the environment. Thanks to photovoltaic panels, the estate produces 3 times more electricity than its annual consumption. Around fifty thousand litres of water is harvested from rainfall and is used to clean agricultural machines and to treat diseases in the vineyard. These efforts have been recognised by the certification - High Environmental Value Level 3.
The Château doesn't propose rooms but thanks to its tourism success, it has given rise to numerous guest houses and "airbnb" rentals around it perfect for you and your guests. Hotels are located from 5 to 15 mins from the estate. A shuttle service can be organised to facilitate the transport. We have partners for all kinds of services including caterers, transport, wedding planners, decorators, etc who can relieve you of the burden of organising everything yourself.
Preserving the past and opening up to the future with sustainable practices are this Chateau's philosophy. Combine a magical site, excellent wine, warm hospitality, and your closest friends and family and you will have the perfect mix to etch this moment in your memories.
