Today on the blog, we’re taking you on a trip to the rather splendid French wedding venue of Chateau Rieutort in the Languedoc.
Chateau Rieutort is an idyllic, private wine estate nestled in the middle of fabulous Languedoc vineyards. Situated only 50 kms and 35 kms respectively from the airports of Montpellier and Beziers, the chateau is easily accessible for international guests.
The property consists of the chateau built in 1755 offering the bridal suite with private terrace and jacuzzi, 3 further suites and one double room for your guests. In addition, 6 well equipped gites have been created in adjacent converted historic buildings, like the Orangery, and each accommodate from 4 to 11 guests. There is also a working winery where some 400 000 bottles of amazing wine are produced annually and a 6 acre park with two swimming pools; one of which is heated.
In the 18th century the chateau was a summer residence for one of the Napoleon’s generals. Its current owners, Karina and Peter, run it as a luxury accommodation and gites complex and are thrilled to welcome like minded people seeking comfort and luxury in a historic yet fun and relaxed atmosphere. On a few select days each year the domain is available exclusively for weddings.
A maximum of 60 guests can be accommodated. Adventurous guests could also camp in the park! Additional hotel and chambres d’hotes accommodation is available nearby.
One hundred guests can be seated indoors but several hundreds can dine under the sky in the park. There is also ample space for a marquee or two. Tables and chairs for 100 guests are included in the wedding offer.
If you and your guests come all this way, you will want to relax and stay for a few days or longer. 2018 will see newly opened SPA offering a sauna, large jacuzzi and two massage rooms. The games room is equipped with billiard, table football and board games. Eight mountain bikes are at your disposal and wine tasting tours are available on site. The beautiful Herault river borders the property. Historic Pezenas is the nearest major town. Miles of sandy beaches are nearby.
You and your guests will love Chateau Rieutort.
