When it comes to the perfect place to exchange vows, there’s nothing quite as enchanting as an ancient chateau in the heart of France. Today, we are showcasing Chateau de Bournel. A breathtaking French Chateau Wedding venue that captures the essence of romance in every corner.
7 hectares of perfectly manicured French gardens
Domaine de Bournel lies between the two picturesque villages of Cubry and Nans in the Franche-Comté region, near the Swiss border. This beautiful area is renowned for its culture and history and Chateau itself is classified as a historical monument. Offering a magnificent view of the Vosges. It is located in a park of 160 hectares of untouched nature, filled with lush forests of Cedars of Lebanon, and surrounded by 7 hectares of perfectly manicured French gardens.
The estate has been in the Moustier family for over 600 years and is now run by the youngest generation, Gaspard and Ilaria de Moustier. Ilaria, from Italy, had a dynamic career marketing luxury products, traveling between New York, Milan, and Paris. She fell in love, French style, first with her husband Gaspard and then with his family heritage, the Domain de Bournel.
A world-class hotel, a wedding venue, and a haven of relaxation
Like so many people, life changed during the Covid Pandemic, and 5 days before the birth of their daughter. The couple left Paris and sought refuge in this haven of peace in Franche-Comté. The castle, closed for 15 years, was lovingly restored by the young couple. Who braved the icy winter of 2020 with no heat, while they transformed the Chateau into a world-class hotel, a wedding venue, and a haven of relaxation.
Neo-Gothic French Country Wedding Venue
Staying true to the Neo-Gothic style, each room was decorated in a Chateau Spirit. Meticulously restoring the ancient fixtures and fittings, the priceless wooden poster beds, the winding staircases, pressed ceilings, and ornate fireplaces. The pink stone of Vosges was used for the façade and local wood was hand carved for the parquet floors. The entrance dominates with vaulted arches and cathedral-style stained glass windows. You simply know that this is a place of romance and beauty and the perfect beginning for your forever together.
