The Romantic Aveyron Estate is a quintessentially romantic French country seat set in the hills and valleys of Aveyron in Occitanie.
This outstanding venue offers the ideal setting for your wedding day and epitomises the romance and elegance of a wedding in the south of France.
With a principal manor house spread over four floors, a large events barn for up to 140 guests, a separate gite and historic features including a chapel and centuries-old bread oven, this stunning venue is surrounded by gardens teeming with lavender and vines.
There is a large swimming pool perfect for relaxation or post-wedding pool parties and the surrounding fields and woodlands offer an excellent backdrop for photography. While secluded, the venue remains perfectly accessible with great transport links.
This venue is very special in that it offers excellent flexibility when it comes to planning your special day. Choose their experienced wedding planner to take the reins while you relax, or you are welcome to choose your own planner or coordinator if you prefer. You are also welcome to DIY any elements you choose and can plan your own day if you would like. Whichever path you choose, the expert team will be on hand to offer support and guidance every step of the way. This flexibility means that the estate is suited to a wide range of budgets and styles, meaning that each wedding is completely bespoke and you can make your day unique to you as a couple.
Outside, there are numerous options for your celebration. For your wedding ceremony, you may choose a natural backdrop of hills and woodland sweeping across the valley below or you may prefer to use the grand, centuries-old barn as a rustic centre-piece with its magnificent doors. Enjoy a drinks reception in the extensive grounds and gardens, surrounded by vines, apple trees and flowers.
For your wedding breakfast, you can have a dinner al-fresco in the grounds with long wooden tables (you are welcome to hire a marquee or stretch tent if you wish) and beautiful floristry and decorations or you can use the extensive events barn which is a simply beautiful space and combines wedding luxury with rural rustic French style. Chandeliers and ancient beams create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for you and your guests. At night, the space can be transformed into a dancefloor for your band and DJ. You are also welcome to continue your celebrations outside into the evening, given the secluded nature of the venue.
The venue also provides excellent accommodation for around 30 guests - this is again flexible and can be adapted to different guest configurations.
In the manor itself, there are six double bedrooms, one twin bedroom as well as a large space on the top floor which can be used as a games room or as a space for additional beds for older children or groups of friends. There is then the separate luxury gite which has three double bedrooms as well as two landing/lounge areas which have two extra double fold-out beds available to use. Additional beds and cots can also be provided on request. Both the manor and the gite have large living areas and kitchens.
