The motto of Château Challain is: “where the fairytales begins…”. This is absolutely true: Château Challain, recently voted 1 of the 10 best places to get married in France, is nothing less than your perfect fairy tale wedding castle!

We love its spiral suitcase, the gorgeous wood carved furniture and the magnificent bedrooms. Every room, from the kitchen to the lounge is sumptuous. The reception room is of course just as expected: opulent and magical. For your ceremony, you can also use the impressive church next to the château.

When we first visited this Loire Valley chateau, it reminded us of the Beauty and the Beast castle: we could almost see plates and teapots flying around the room! We also love the eccentricities of the place, such as the variety of stuffed animals from the bull to the giraffe in the entrance hall, to the foxes in the lounge upstairs!

Cynthia, the American owner, will be like your fairy godmother, using a wand to make all your wishes, whatever they might be, come true.

With its 365 windows (one for each day), 52 fireplaces (one for each week) and 12 turrets (one or each month), Château Challain is, as you might have realised already, a place where magic happens…
