Chateau de Rigoulières is a magical wedding venue, a little piece of paradise that sits beautifully along the River Lot. Oozing with character and French style, it is the perfect location for a relaxing and indulgent celebration in South of France.
First, let’s mention the location of Chateau de Rigoulières… The venue is secluded from prying eyes and offers complete exclusivity amidst 40 hectares of private grounds. Yet you are there at the heart of a French little village and will admire from the property stunning views of the water, with the Lot river gently flowing by.
We also love the garden, with its many nooks and corners, the scents of the roses and lavender, topped by bird song.
The chateau itself is beautifully made of stone and red bricks that make for an utterly stylish and impressive facade.
On the big day, have your wedding ceremony in the charming gardens, followed by a canapé reception by the river.
The wedding breakfast will take place outdoors, under garlands of fairly lights or in the magnificent vaulted barn, that was formerly a wine store.
When the plates are empty, dance the night away under the stars!
On the day after, gather your guests back to enjoy an al fresco brunch by the large pool and reminisce the magic of your wedding day.
Finally the chateau can sleep up to 22 people in 9 spacious rooms. All the rooms have large windows that open onto the river. There is plenty more accommodation in the village.
Things to do nearby: from the chateau you will be ideally located to immerse yourself in the quintessential French lifestyle by exploring the many nearby towns of the Lot region such as Cahors, City of Art and History, or little villages full of character such as Pujols, officially labelled as one of the most beautiful villages of France. A wine tasting tour is a must, accompanied by the wine maker him/herself. Water lovers will be pleased as the Lot River offers many possibilities, from kayaking to fishing or cruising…Finally one of the best golf courses of Aquitaine is located only 13 minutes from the Chateau.
