Description

This Château, in a neoclassical architectural style, is immensely romantic…
Its heart beats discreetly between the classicism of a 18th century French castle and the richness of an English garden.
Hidden from sight, a truly glamorous but cosy property, this exceptional residence, where the spirit of a family home has been carefully preserved, is an ideal place to organize an unforgettable wedding.

Nestled in the heart of Provence, leaning against the slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail and Mont Ventoux, and set in a private 35 hectares centuries-old park, the Chateau counts among the few privileged hidden gems in the region.

This sleeping beauty castle, built in 1763 by an illustrious Provence family, suffered the throes of the French Revolution and was partly burnt at that time. Rebuilt identically in 1836, it boasts a very unique refined and authentic atmosphere that will play a part in the magic of your day.

You will take your time for a stroll in the lush landscaped park and the exquisite gardens, and will enjoy the rare setting of the Northern courtyard. Under the radiant sunlight, with only birds and cicadas songs interrupting the place's calmness... at the Chateau Martinay everything is about harmony, each little detail contributing to create an out-of-time experience.

A place of relaxation and well-being and the perfect backdrop for your event.
For your ceremony, reception and photography, you can use the magnificent park with its romantic bridle paths. In the cool of the day, the centuries-old trees are magnificent and here and there a statue to admire or a stone bench offers a welcome rest and an ideal place to open your mind to the beauty surrounding you. After the wedding day, close your eyes and give way to relaxation around the Chateau’s swimming pool located in the heart of the park. The orangery, with its brand new fitness area, can accommodate your meals for friendly atmospheres around a barbecue or a cocktail reception.

"La Vie de Château".
In a Neoclassic spirit, the seven rooms and suites of the Chateau have retained their original features. Each of them is unique, bright and elegant, facing either the gardens or the park. The refined decoration with contemporary notes combines elements of olden days (fireplaces, woodwork, old stones) with modern furnitures (boasting premium bedding, air-conditioning, en-suite facilities) and thousands of details dedicated to the art of living in Provence.
There is also the sumptuous Junior Suite, perfect for a romantic stay before and after your big day.

On-site leisure facilities include a heated swimming pool, tennis and pétanque courts, fitness equipments and reading room. Private parking inside the property.

The Chateau is located 25 km from Avignon and 70km from Marseille, and is close to all the main touristic areas from Provence.

Location

Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Wedding VenueThis is quite possibly one of the most spectacular locations on earth. You may have seen celebrity weddings taking place here and you may have even seen huge yachts taking off from St Tropez, but now it is possible for you to have your very own wedding here as well.

The five-star hotels that are in this area are not to be missed and this is actually one of the most sought-after wedding destinations in the world. It’s important to know that this is the main hub when it comes to country roads.

The French Riviera is not only Saint Tropez though! The coast between Nice and Marseille is also well known for its charming and picturesque villages such as Cassis, Sanary, les Goudes, Giens, Hyères, Bormes-Les-Mimosas and Cagnes sur Mer. However, if you would prefer to get married in a field of lavender, or if you want to have an idyllic rural setting that will really make your big day magical we suggest you have a look at the most famous villages in the heart of Provence such as Gordes, Roussillon, Tourtour, Eze, Saint-Paul de Vence. This is easily one of the most picturesque locations in France, and even though it may not be rich in architecture, it certainly makes up for it when you look at the stunning sights that Mother Nature herself is able to provide. The wedding venues in this area are just as spectacular, and if you choose the right spot, you may not even have to decorate. It really is that beautiful to look at.

Reviews

  • An incredible experience! It has been an oasis of peace, beauty and happiness. Breakfast is very good and with Bio and km0 products. The person in charge has treated us in a charming way and we can only thank her for the attention she has had at all times with us. We will definitely be back for an anniversary in the future! Would highly recommend to any couple getting married in France
