Enjoy the incomparable comfort and joys of Chateau Life

Privatise this beautiful estate for your wedding day and be sure to enjoy one of the best experiences of your life! In 2010, a couple fell in love with this wonderful 18th century castle listed as a Historic Monument in the Le Mans region. Ten years of hard work followed to make the estate the exceptional reception venue that you discover today. The castle is now a charming hotel with thirteen luxurious rooms which have earned it 4 stars.


This fifteenth century chateau started life as a small domaine before being transformed into the grand building you see today with the agricultural estate and the “ Famille de la Rivière” transforming it into a majestic château in the seventeenth century. The garden is a marvel that oscillates between an old-fashioned organic vegetable garden , a relaxing pool area, a marvelous rose garden that leads you to the recently renovated Orangery.

Blend chateau and countryside for an unforgettable event:
At the heart of a park, a true haven of peace, enjoy almost one hundred hectares, or woods, paths, meadows, rose gardens, pond, streams and canals which have shaped the since the 17th century.

Ideally located less than an hour from Paris by TGV, and at the crossroads of several cities, namely: Nantes, Rennes, Tours, Caen, Rouen ... the Château, a listed historic monument, is an enchanting place to make your wedding day dreams come true.

For an inside reception, the Room of Mirrors, with its mirrors and chandeliers reflected in it, offers you a setting for your wedding worthy of a princess.

The chateau has its own private chapel where you can have either a blessing or a secular ceremony and feel the magic of your commitment in a truly special and historical setting.

The privatization of the hotel, equipped with all the high-end comforts, will allow you to relax and spend time with your family and guests.

The large common areas (over 300m2) of the castle have been the subject of a refined restoration and it is possible to host events all year round.

Our mirror room, renovated in a baroque spirit which was close to the heart to the mistress of the chateau, is an extraordinary, fabulous and unique space. Imagine a very high ceiling (about 6 metres) and a space where the large windows are each reflected in a mirror, thus creating an effect of depth where the chandeliers reflect light and beauty.

The other lounges (three spaces in a row) are decorated in warm colours and wood, which will offer you a different atmosphere.

Outside, the large esplanade will allow you to organise an elegant cocktail party and its view of the park will provide a rural and idyllic setting.

During your wedding, our spaces will be completely privatized and will be exclusively dedicated to you.

Newly opened, our hotel, located in the guest wing of the Marquis de Samson, will offer you top-of-the-range accommodation for around 28 people. All have been tastefully decorated by the hostess, who was inspired by old engravings to create different decorations in each of the rooms while showing all the styles and the French art of living that reigns at the Château. In the bathrooms, black or white marble, onyx or travertine are in the spotlight. Modern comfort has not been forgotten, and all the rooms have top-of-the-range bedding, air conditioning, mini-bar, wi-fi and television.

For other accommodation near the castle, hotels or guest rooms can be recommended by our team.

Pays de la LoireWedding VenuesBelieve it or not, the Chateaux of the Loire was actually founded in the Centre region of France, and not in Pays de la Loire. That being said, that does not mean that this isn’t one of the most spectacular wedding destinations around.

This area is known for having breath-taking fairy tale castles and it is also known for having a rich and cultural history. Another thing that you should know about this area is that it extends from the Atlantic coast! For that reason, if you want to get married with a stunning castle right behind you with the finest wine around then this is a location you should certainly consider.

Wine is very famous here, as this region is home to the Loire Valley, and this is often referred to as being the garden of France. This whole area is agriculturally rich, and it is very countryside themed as well. With rolling hills, it’s safe to say that this region is home to some of the most spectacular sunsets in the whole area. For that reason, if you want a wedding that has a scenic backdrop that you’ll never forget, this is the one for you.


  • Superb place where you can stay for the night, in beautiful and large rooms. The castle and its gardens are visited. A place of peace for a romantic weekend! We enjoyed the venue for a friends wedding and it was just so beautiful, I highly recommend !

  • Excellent hotel and venue. The suits are very big and the furniture is very beautiful and traditional. We had the chance to visit the Chateau as per the following videos. A great thanks to the owners. Our stay was exceptional and I really recommend this place for families, weddings and anything out of the box. We also enjoyed the visit of the original Chateau and the beauty of its furniture. The garden is amazing and the whole domain is a must visit in the Mans region.
