Chateau Mathilde epitomises the quintessential “vie de château” experience, with its opulent decor, stunning bedrooms and an enchanting 22 hectare park. It will be the perfect setting for an unforgettable chateau wedding in Normandy, whether you are dreaming of a decadent, Versailles like party or a boho-chic affair.
With Chateau Mathilde, prepare to be wowed around every corner, replete with époque items and lavish features.
On your wedding day, your guests will arrive through the peaceful alley of poplars. This will lead them up to the gatehouse, a majestic arch framed by two pointy turrets that has become the symbol of this French “Monument Historique”.
For the blessing, you could have it in the lovely chapel on the grounds or in the magnificent gardens. Then head towards the characterful farmhouse courtyard for the pre-dinner cocktails.
The wedding breakfast will take place in “La Charreterie” that can sit up to 80 people. We love the charm of the building and its contemporary outlook, with the striking red brick work and huge glass stable doors.
For parties bigger than 80 people, La Charreterie can be extended by the use of a marquee, in order to sit a total of 200 people.
After the dinner, there is no curfew so you can let your hair down and party the night away!
On the day after, gather everyone back to the chateau for a brunch or BBQ, stacked full of local cuisine.
The domaine sleeps up to 45 people on site in a variety of wonderful rooms and cottages.
Each of the rooms has been carefully restored and designed to be a space of beauty and comfort, so you won’t be disappointed by any of them. Plus the bathrooms are stylish and modern.
The bedroom “La Parade” is a Louis XIV gem, that would deserve to be in any movie about French royalty, with its epic four poster, red velvet, bed sitting in a golden alcove.
Finally let’s add that the chateau has been in the same family since 1888, so when coming to Chateau Mathilde, you can expect to find a warm family welcome!
Things to do area: the chateau is at the heart of a green, unspoiled area of Normandy, perfect for hiking, biking or horse riding. That being said, you’ll also be close to the action, with the fascinating town of Rouen and its monumental cathedral only 28km away. Many painters were inspired by the Norman landscape and you’ll also find in Rouen the second largest Impressionist collection in France. Finally, the D-day beaches are close enough for a day trip.
