Location Information:
Welcome to the kingdom of Princes and Princesses. Imagine these historic walls, just one hour 30 minutes drive south of Paris, in the beautiful Burgundy region, as the setting for your exclusive destination wedding. Hire of the castle is exclusive over 2 or 3 days so you will welcome your guests in total intimacy for your wedding in your very own Domaine in France! What more can you ask for to create the perfect fairytale wedding that you will remember for the rest of your lives?

Style:
Two beautiful reception rooms are located in the main Renaissance-style building. The Domaine also includes fully renovated stables, a circular Dovecot hosting the bridal suite, an authentically decorated Moroccan Pavilion and swimming pool for you and your guests for 2 to 3 days exclusive hire.

Accommodations:
With 28 rooms on-site and a further 40 rooms and holiday cottages within the local village accessible by foot, this castle can welcome intimate or large wedding groups.

Wedding Receptions:
Come to the Domaine on the eve of your big day and settle into the castle's historical rooms with your guests. The evening could kick off with a wine tasting in the vaulted 12th-century cellars. Afterwards, why not enjoy a Tajine served at dusk in the Oriental Pavilion with the swimming pool jsut outside? 

On the day of your wedding, the choices for your ceremony are numerous, each as enchanting as the next. A symbolic/non-religious, catholic or protestant marriage can be celebrated in the local church just 5 minutes walk from the Domaine. For others, a flower-laden chuppah or floral arch erected in the rose garden or meadow would be your idea of the perfect ceremony. 

An open-air cocktail reception then follows outside under the decorative pagoda before moving inside to enjoy a gastronomic French wedding dinner lit only by candles in one of the two beautiful reception rooms. After supper, everyone steps out into the grounds or onto the front steps for a firework show set to music, or a huge bonfire. 

On the following day, breakfast and/or brunch can be served around the big pool, enveloped in fragrances rising up from the gardens. Your guests will be able to stroll through the forest or beneath the ramparts. Aperitifs served in the vaulted cellars precede salads, salmon and grilled meats to round off a sequence of life's small pleasures. An unforgettable destination wedding rich in emotion is guaranteed at this exclusive wedding venue.

Activities:
Horseback riding, private tours, helicopter rides, wine tasting, balloon rides, swimming, golfing, and vineyard tours.

Enchantments:
A magical welcome dinner can be held for you and your guests on the eve of your wedding with an oriental theme, complete with belly dancers!  A circular dovecot houses the bridal suite which has panoramic views of the castle and grounds. A bonfire can be built in the grounds of the Domain and lit on the night of your wedding. An unforgettable and cozy way to ponder the unforgettable activities of the day!
