Located in one the sunniest areas of France, Chateau du Puits es Pratx was formerly home to a large producer of wine. This heritage is still present throughout, for instance with the reception hall, a characterful barn where the wine press is now the wedding bar!
What we love at Chateau du Puits es Pratx, besides its very French charm, is that the owners have thought of every detail to make of your wedding planning an enjoyable and stress free experience. Indeed, the Chateau has its own caterer as well as a bespoke wedding planning service, offered for free to couples getting married there.
In addition, the many different spaces of the domain will allow you to create new surprises at every stage of your wedding day.
So let’s imagine for a moment your wedding there…
For the ceremony, you could get married in the scenic vineyards but if you prefer the option of a church, you’ll be happy to know that the superb local church can host catholic or protestant weddings for up to 300 people.
Thereafter head towards the formal gardens at the front of the Chateau for some pre-dinner nibbles and champagne.
Finally when the moment of the dinner has come, let your guests discover the magic courtyard: with fairy lights above your head and candles around the gorgeous fountain, your wedding will definitely have a bit of a Mamma Mia feel!
For the dance, you could create another surprise by inviting your guests into the barn with its press wine-bar.
In terms of practicalities, the Chateau can sleep up to 50 people and there is plenty of accommodation nearby. You will also find on the grounds a large heated pool and two spas.
It is to be noted, too, that the in-house chef is at your disposal to arrange other meals for you and your guests, such as for instance an informal buffet on the day before your wedding, or a brunch BBQ on the day after.
To summarise, we think Chateau du Puits es Pratx would be perfect for couples looking to have a romantic and laid back wedding in the South of France.
