“Even Cinderella didn’t have a chateau like this one!” declared a beaming bride recently about Chateau de Maulmont. It’s easy to see why this chateau really is a magical venue for a wedding…
The chateau is in the countryside in the Auvergne region (the land of volcanoes) and is surrounded by the 22 hectares of parkland, boosting superb views over the Allier Valley.
The venue itself has the perfect layout for weddings, allowing you to organise surprises at every stage of your big day. The ceremony could take place outside or under the pergola with views over the lakes. For the dinner, head towards the beautiful wood panelled banqueting room that can sit up to 70 people. This space is completed by a custom made marquee that can sit an extra 70 people. As for the lovely adjoining bar, it can be used as a dance floor. In addition, the venue has a nursery room, specifically dedicated to children (30 children max.)
On the day after, you can gather your guests by the outdoor pool for a relaxing brunch.
Another plus point: the dynamic and reliable owners are able to provide a bespoke wedding package and will be there at every stage of the planning to help you create your perfect day. As you’ll see, they really go that extra mile to make sure your wedding will be a complete success.
In addition, the estate provides an outstanding sleeping capacity: the chateau can sleep up to 64 guests – in 16 beautiful bedrooms, 3 suites and 2 appartements – plus an extra 18 people in holiday houses within the domain. In total, 82 people can stay on the estate! You’ll also find nearby everything from yurts to B&Bs for the rest of your wedding guests.
Finally the chateau also has a delightful indoor pool and sauna as well as a helipad and a golf driving range.
For all these reasons, we think that Chateau de Maulmont would suit any couple looking at getting married in a majestic, yet cosy, venue where all the planning can be taken off their hands.
Things to do in the area: visit Chateau de Randan (which was formerly part of the same royal estate as Chateau de Maulmont) 7km away, discover the nearby spa town of Vichy, explore the gently rolling Bourbonnais mountains (20 minutes away) and don’t miss touring around the spectacular Volcano Park and its 80 volcanoes…

Jenny, Marc and Marli
"We had our wedding here and everything was absolutely wonderful. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating, one couldn't ask for more. The entire facility was very clean and tidy. But of course the best part was just how magnificent the castle was. I would definitely recommend it without thinking twice."
"Mon mariage a été décrit comme "féérique"! C'est bien grâce à cette venue: ce château impressionnant. Ca valait le coup, nos familles ont passé un moment incroyable et nous en garderont des souvenirs pour très longtemps, ils en parlent encore! Maartje a été formidable, organiser ce mariage depuis l'Irlande n'a pas été très facile, elle m'a beacoup assistée dans l'organisation, les jours précédents et le jour-même. Merci mille fois Maartje!"
Linda & John, Ireland (wedding 11th August 2015)
"A unique experience! Our daughter got married in this marvellous château, a real modern fairytale. Quality at all levels: hospitality, services, gastronomy, environment, childcare by a professional whose pedagogical skills are exceptional. Maartje and her husband are at the top of their game in managing this fabulous château. To be recommended to all your friends. Success Maartje and thanks for everything."
Amélie & Julien (wedding 28th September 2013)
"This place is so special, and not just because we had our wedding here. The owners are absolutely wonderful! I'm so thankful that they have kept such great care of this place and shared this enchanting castle with us. Not only is this place so magical (and you should ask them about their King's room, I'm talking about their historical room, very cool!), but so is their food! We had guests eat at Paul Bocuse's Michelin Three Star restaurant in Lyon the night before, and said that the food at Maulmont was better! In fact, by the time we were done with our wedding pictures, we barely had much left to eat beacuse the guests loved the food so much! But what we did have was also incredibly delicious!
The owners are very gracious, and we are super thankful for this! But they are also very practical and flexible! I honestly don't know what I would have done without their help! They really made my whole wedding planning and the wedding weekend experience a breeze for us...and for all my family and friends! Since a large portion of our guests had to travel from other countries, we really wanted to make this an experience tehy would never forget!....and when people are thanking you for having been a part of your wedding, you know something went right :)
I would absolutely do my wedding there again! I'd throw another murder mystery party there again! I'd come back to vacation there again!"
Lisa & Antoine (wedding 23rd June 2012)
