5 Castles For Your Chateau Wedding In France

May 8, 2020


Best venues for your chateau wedding in France


Getting married in Paris and looking for a perfect venue? Here are five locations for your chateau wedding in France that I love working at. They are all situated near Paris and have beautiful reception rooms and lovely exteriors (images are clickable)!



Chateau Bouffémont

This pretty castle is situated within 30-40 minutes taxi drive from Paris. International couples love this place because it is very easy to access. Uber and Taxi (50€ fare approximately) are widely available in the area, which means that you can potentially skip booking transportation for your guests. 


Chateau de Bouffemont has 9 beautifully renovated rooms for your immediate family and close friends to stay over (the total capacity of 18-20 people approximately). 

There are also three interconnected reception rooms and a pretty lawn for your outdoor ceremony.


Even though the official capacity is around 130 people, I would recommend this place for smaller groups of 50-60 people. Alternatively, you would need to place your guests in three different rooms, which is something I usually try to avoid.


The dance floor is located on another level, which is a thing to bear in mind if you were always imagining having dinner and the party in the same place. 



Chateau de Villette

This 18th-century castle has a very elegant and feminine look and feel to it. The chateau de Villette offers an amazing backdrop for your outdoor receptions in style. It has a huge park, fountains and a swimming pool for your next day events.

This chateau also provides accommodation for your guests to stay over.

Chateau de Dangu

best chateau in france for wedding


A splendid chateau with a rich history, Dangu will be a great choice for bigger groups of 80+ guests. It has a spacious and beautiful ballroom in neutral grey colours, with paintings on the walls, chimney, and original parquet. The room reserved for the dancefloor is adjacent to the dining area, which means that people can remain at their table and observe the dancefloor at the same time.


This chateau has a spacious outdoor area for an open-air cocktail and ceremony. In case of bad weather, there are two rooms inside that can be used for the ceremony and cocktail. 


Chateau de Dangu has 20 rooms to accommodate a big part of your guests for the night. It is located 1h -1h30 minutes driving distance away from Paris, this is why it is essential to organise transfers for your guests. 



Chateau Barthelemy

Another gorgeous wedding venue near Paris for big groups. Chateau Barthelemy offers a splendid exterior with a lake, a pretty kiosque that can host a ceremony, a swimming pool, and a glasshouse for dinner and party. You can also organise a 100% outdoor reception with the cocktail, dinner and the party being on the lawn in front of the castle. The place has 5 rooms in the chateau itself and various buildings transformed into dormitories on its territory. Amazing wedding venue for multiple-day celebrations.



Chateau de Chesnaie

Chateau de Chesnaie is located very close to Paris (20 minutes taxi ride). It has a pretty exteriors, rather spacious park for outdoor ceremonies and a very elegant ballroom in neutral colours. Chateau de Chesnaie is perfect for intimate celebrations with up to 70 guests. The place doesn’t have accommodation inside, thus is not suitable for multiple-day celebrations.
