Chateau Duchesse

DESCRIPTION

Say “bonjour” to the sumptuous Chateau Duchesse, a dazzling wedding venue sat amidst Provence vineyards.

The property offers exceptional views on the Alpilles mountains, a large woodland park and 150 hectares of vineyards.

Home to many dukes and duchesses of Provence throughout the years, this venue certainly delivers on wow factor with both exceptional grounds and superb interiors.

The property is composed of a castle and a villa.

The castle has 11 bedrooms and suites, vast reception rooms that are decorated with noble materials and period furniture and an outdoor swimming pool. Each room has its own decor that combines contemporary artwork with historical objects.

The villa has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and an outdoor swimming pool.

Rental conditions:

The reception will take place outside in the French gardens, by the pool, or by the vineyards. It is advisable to rent a marquee at the expense of the bride and groom.

It is mandatory to have a wedding planner, to rent a generator and an outside toilet.

No noise limit or time limit for the music.

Many parking spots on-site.

Rates:

45 000€ for 3 nights, including 15 bedrooms (in the castle and the extra villa), VAT included. In 2023, the price will be 47 250€ including all taxes.

Only resident guests have access to the interior of the castle and the extra villa.

Services included: daily housekeeping, linens, laundry, preparation of breakfast for people sleeping on-site.

Services available upon request: private chef, sommelier, babysitter, caterer, furniture (tables, chairs…), sound and lights, decoration, flowers…and many more.

Activities & things do to nearby: There’s so much to explore without leaving the grounds… Cycle in the 150 hectares of vineyards surrounding the property, burn some energy at the tennis court or admire the view from the hot tub located in one of the towers. You could also decide to relax in the music room or have a massage in the rose garden! Agrotourism tours (almonds, truffles and olive groves) are offered on the estate. If you decide to venture out of the grounds you will be ideally located to explore Provence: the buzzing Aix en Provence is a short drive away, as well as emblematic, picture perfect Provence villages such as Gordes, Lourmarin, Rousillon or Les Baux de Provence.
