For the ultimate fairy-tale wedding, the venue is complete with tennis courts, a swimming pool and over twenty acres of land to give you complete privacy. Our team are here to help; with a wedding planner fluent in French and English, expert chef and in-house staff you can feel secure in knowing you're in for the best day of your lives!
Celebrate with your nearest and dearest and make your dream wedding day become a reality.
With its 10 bedrooms, the château can sleep up to 30 guests so bring friends and family and let the celebrations continue throughout the weekend.
Wedding blessings can take place outside on our grounds or inside the château itself. Dinners can be held in the dining room or, if the sun is shining, on the terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds.
Chateau Charente is a place to renew yourself: a sanctuary for body, mind and soul in a nineteenth century French chateau deep in the countryside of south-west France. Magical, hidden-away Chateau Charente was described by a guest as “a slice of heaven”.
Your experience at Chateau Charente is designed around optimising your personal wellbeing; the owners invite you to make the chateau your private sanctuary. Chateau Charente is emphatically a home, not a hotel. You won’t find a reception desk or suited staff behind a bar. Instead, the belle époque hallways and oak-panelled salons echo to the laughter of the children, while well-loved family pets snooze in the midday sun.
Each of the ten distinctive and beautifully restored en-suite bedrooms represent understated French elegance. Simple, crisp white bed-linen provides a cool embrace from the heat of south-west France.
The chateau sits in its own 11 acre estate of gardens, fields and forest. Try a dip in the fresh-water swimming lake or relax in a deckchair beside the pool. Enjoy a game of tennis on the newly-built courts, or practise yoga in the dedicated studio. You can walk for miles into the shaded woods of birch and chestnut beyond the grounds.

Unwind in understated, elegant bedrooms; savour bespoke dining on the terrace, complete with home-grown ingredients and local Bordeaux wines; enjoy your own private yoga studio, tennis courts, swimming pool and lake; lose yourself in the twenty-two acres of gardens and woods, with miles of walks into the countryside beyond.
