As you approach Château de Courtomer over the moat the only noise you will hear is birdsong and the wind in the trees. The 350 acre estate, which includes a working farm, is just a short drive from Paris and channel ports but a million miles from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The Château was recently renovated by it’s American owner to offer all the conveniences of modern living whilst retaining the elegance and beauty of an 18th century way of life. As you walk through the glazed entrance doors to the reception hall you will be transported back to another era. The ground floor rooms are filled with light, with sun pouring in through the huge windows. One room spills into another, a design feature that the French call ‘en filade’, inviting guests to explore….
The large dining room overlooks the moat and farmland beyond and is lit with fine crystal chandeliers. From here, doors lead to the sitting room and library, which on cool mornings is warmed by a crackling log fire. All public rooms and en-suite bedrooms offer fine, uninterrupted views over the park or farmland that surround the Château.
The estate is very private and can be exclusively yours, our minimum stay is three nights and our minimum price is based on 15 guests. For larger groups please contact Beatrice for a tailor made quote. We offer 24 hour, on site security and maintenance.
The Château, Orangerie, Farmhouse and park offer our couples an endless range of possibilities regarding the organisation of a wedding and the after party. The only limit will be your imagination: dine alfresco under the Linden trees or in the Cour D’honneur; exchange vows on the bridge over the moat, feast and dance in style in a stretch tent on the lawn or perhaps a formal wedding breakfast in the large dining room? The choice is yours.
Need more space? The Orangerie is just a short stroll from the main house and is perfect for a small banquet or dancing, and the adjacent walled garden is ideal for barbecues, games or just chilling out with friends and family. The farmhouse, just a five-minute stroll from the main house offers extra self-catering accommodation too.
Some venues will leave you on your own once you have booked but that isn’t how we work. Our on site, bilingual team will provide you with discreet and dedicated support. They know the Château and have experience in event preparation and planning. We know that no two weddings are alike and so we are very flexible in terms of the help we offer, leaving couples free to design and curate the wedding of their dreams.
We have no curfews, don’t charge corkage and our list of recommended suppliers is just that; our couples are free to work with the suppliers of their choice.
As a venue our aim is simple – that you, your friends and family enjoy a flawless event filled with love, laughter and smiles and if your idea of a celebration includes your four legged friends, they are welcome too!
We look forward to hearing from you!
