In Burgundy, there is no better place to experience the charm “à la française” with all the beauty it has to offer. A true pleasure for you and your guests !
Château de Varennes – The iconic Château of Burgundy
Looking for a venue with a chapel for your Château Wedding in France ? With its 18th century façade, its private consecrated chapel and its park, the Château de Varennes has everything to please. Located in the beautiful Burgundy region of France, this family castle offers the possibility of a complete privatization to fully enjoy the place with your loved ones.
A Château Wedding in Burgundy
The Venetian style staircase located in the main hallway is certainly unique. It will lead you to several salons, which have kept their historical character and are perfect for getting ready in privacy with your bridal party. With a private suite and 6 Deluxe suites, all with marble bathrooms, 2 family suites and 5 bedrooms located in the castle and 3 suites in the outbuildings, you can host a total of 40 guests with high end facilities to live the castle life.
You can celebrate your ceremony in the private Burgundian Romanesque chapel or in the park. An air of Provence is hidden in the park of the Château with a field of lavender, which offers a magical backdrop for your photos. For your summer wedding, you will particularly enjoy the outdoor spaces, ideal for your wedding reception under the stars. The Château also has an orangery for indoor receptions up to 250 people.
We found this location perfect to celebrate a full-weekend destination wedding. You can sit by the pool surrounded by a Burgundy stone floor in harmony with the castle’s facade. You will enjoy a welcome diner or a farewell brunch surrounded by the gardens “à la française” in the lounge area. Your guests can also play on the tennis court located a few meters from the pool.
We love this place where you can feel the pleasure of receiving with a warm welcome!
