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.

Things to do in the area: the Chateau is on the edge of a delightful little village where you will find all the amenities as well as restaurants and B&Bs.
It is also 5 min from the famous Canal du Midi (where you could organise for your guests a boat tour), 30 minutes from the sandy Mediterranean beaches, and 1.5hrs from Spain. There is a golf nearby, and of course don’t miss a wine tasting tour. For those who like hiking, the Herault National Park is 40 minutes away.

PERFECT WEDDING! It is difficult to put into words just how amazing our wedding experience was at Chateau du Puits es Pratx. We got engaged in December 2022 and had our wedding in July 2023, so a reasonbly quick turn around. The comminucation and organisation by the team was second to none. Lily, Luke, Sasha, Tim and the entire team made us and our guests feel so welcome and looked after (before, during and after the wedding). The Chateau itself is stunning and the touches which are added; flowers, cake, food, lighting etc made the day even more special. Essentially, Lily was able to take any stress out of planning and made our preparations simple. We loved the fact that our celebrations were spread over 3 days (onsite) giving us lots of time with our family and friends. Our guests loved the whole experience too. We 1,000,000% recommend booking your wedding here. Thank you again to Lily, Luke, Sasha, Tim and all of the wonderful staff! x

Laura & Sam, September 14th (Wedding July 2023)

Absolutely Magical We got married here in June of 2023, and had the most amazing time. Everyone at the chateau was wonderful throughout the weekend (and the entire planning process!). Lily and Luke are incredibly on top of things and helped us through every step of the way, from vendors to flowers to last-minute taxi and transportation changes for our guests. The chateau itself is gorgeous in June. The flowers, the vineyard, the arch, and the bouquets were absolutely beautiful. The food was also exceptional at every single meal - two months later, guests are still commenting on how good the food was, and how beautiful the chateau was overall. To Lily, Luke, Stephanie, Sasha, Tim, and the rest of the staff - thank you so much for everything! We had the most amazing experience and cannot say enough good things about the chateau and the staff. We hope to return to Ginestas soon. For anyone who is considering a wedding at the chateau, we would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Kaitlyn & Dan, August 2023 (Wedding June 2023)

Wedding 2022. What can I say? The most incredible wedding at this gorgeous chateau. It’s family run & they have so much in house expertise which is invaluable when doing a destination wedding and whatever they cannot cater for in house they have so many suppliers to choose from. Lily, in house planner, was excellent from our very first visit through to the very end of our special few days. She was always happy to answer lots of questions & offer her advice. Luke was also fantastic, he knew our day inside & out and whenever we asked anything during our day, - he’d already done it!!! We had so many compliments overall from our guests - stunning location, excellent accommodation, delicious food & friendly staff. Stephanie knew most guests by name after the first day!! I cannot fault this wedding venue. Thank you for helping us make our dream day a reality!

Katie & John, December 2022 (Wedding, October 2022)

The very Best Wedding I am the groom's mother and of course it was their choice of wedding venue. I could not have been more delighted with my son and now daughter in law's choice. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by Stephanie who was friendly and so welcoming. She also managed to remember every guests name -amazing The Chateau itself is enchanting and so beautifully furnished. The outside gardens are delightful and the relaxing swimming pool ideal for the hot sunny days. As for Lily and Luke - they were exceptional The food, the service, their attention to detail without being overbearing. You knew they knew exactly what to do and when. The wedding party was completely relaxed in their capable hands. They were just so friendly and approachable and I was delighted they were just there. They are definitely in the right business. I cannot not mention the beautiful flowers. They just appeared on the patio where the wedding ceremony took place, in the courtyard and the tables for the wedding breakfast for the bride's bouquet her headdress - stunning. It was the perfect 3 days and Thank You to you all. For any future Bride and Grooms to be do not hesitate

Julie, September 2022 (Wedding September 2022)

We got married at the Chateau in September of last year and literally could not have been more delighted with how everything went. We had 80 guests, 35 of whom stayed on site and the rest in B&Bs and houses around the village. Sasha and Tim are wonderful hosts and the Chateau provides a magical backdrop to get married in. Lots of people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and even now four months on people are still talking to us wistfully about the magical 4 days they spent in the South of France for our wedding. Some points to consider/some advice for those considering this venue: - If food is important to you, (as it certainly was to us) I would highly recommend this as a venue. Sasha and Tim produced a gastronomic feast every evening of our stay and the wedding breakfast in particular was out of this world (...) - This is not a modern property, which for us was part of its magic but obviously this does mean that it has quirks. Either embrace it or get married somewhere modern. - Having your wedding here is like having all the best parts of being hosted by a family but in a hotel at the same time. This means that you get to enjoy Tim and Sasha's warm hospitality but at the same time get a level of service you would expect in a hotel. It doesn't mean that you can stay up past their licensing hours or bring in crates of your own alcohol which seems to have been an assumption made by some previous guests (...) - Make sure you have some guests that you can rope in to take charge of getting tables etc decorated on the day (people seem to love doing this anyway) (...) Basically, if you are thinking about getting married here - do it! You won't regret it!


I'm not sure where to start! OMG the team at this STUNNING venue were SUPERHUMAN ! The words I'm about to write to describe the 4 days of our wedding event are in no way good enough however ....My wife and I had the most amazing, beautiful, special, stunning, incredible days of our life for our "out of this world" wedding! Everything ran perfectly and went to plan ! From the amazing Venue and staff to the "West End" quality a la carte food not only tasting beyond delicious but looking like a work of art (ALL 4 DAYS) […] this unique place is to die for! On behalf of my new Wife and I and all our friends and family who many said it was the BEST wedding they had ever been to even better than their own weddings .... Oh almost forgot ... one of our friends actually said it was the best day of THEIR lives !!! The bands that you recommended were ALL hugely talented and thank you for recommending them ... We really weren't expecting them all to be at such a high level. We would like to thank Tim, Sasha, Fran,Sam, Stephanie, Michael, Lily, Elly and Ruairi and everyone else behind the scenes for their ridiculous hard work and making the best day of our lives for us and our guests. The only downside is that we have a serious case of post wedding blues now ! We cannot wait to come back and see you ALL and many of our friends want to come with us just to get a little more magic into our lives ! Thank you again Your Friends,

Scotty,Victoria,Scarlett and Hugo
