Chateau Plombis equips you with a superb backdrop for an elegant, glamorous, woodland wedding in South of France.
Built from local, honey-coloured sandstone, the chateau is elegant and very welcoming. Framed by huge ancient Cedars and specimen trees, the domaine boasts 25 hectares of grounds and orchards that certainly make for a photogenic setting.
Plus it provides the ease of an in-house wedding planning team. The enthusiastic wedding planners have proudly organised over 300 bespoke weddings, so you’ll be in safe hands when it comes to making your own wedding vision come to life.
On the big day, say “I do” in the woodland area, a tree-shaded clearing with sweeping views over the valley.
Then dine in the long covered gallery, that used to be the old stables. The Arcades was refurbished in 2018 and retains its character with exposed wooden beams and a ceiling of fairylights.
The covered gallery is connected to the Orangerie by a central pigeoneer tower with event toilets.
The Orangerie, with its impressive large windows, is another fantastic area to dance the night away with a glamorous bar area.
The day after, continue the wedding festivities by having everyone back to the Chateau for a BBQ, relax by the pool and perhaps even a knock about on the tennis court.
The domaine can sleep up to 26 people: 19 people in the chateau and 7 people in a cottage on the grounds.
The rooms on the upper floor roll out onto a dazzling 26m corridor of polished parquet, decorated with chandeliers, a picture gallery and a grand piano, ready to tinkle away if you or any of your guests have the skills.
Last but not least, Chateau Plombis’ concept is to offer outstanding food that will showcase French local cuisine and look spectacular on the plate. Jean Marc ‘Le Chef Impeccable’ is the resident Chef whose culinary skills are just gastronomic.
Continental breakfast will be delivered fresh every morning for all the residents from the local bakery including local organic honey and jam.
Just kick back and let them take care of you and your guests for a wedding weekend guaranteed to delight everyone.
Things to do in the area: Chateau Plombis is located in the “Quercy Blanc” an area of South West France characterised by small hilltop villages built from the pale local limestone. The chateau is just a five-minute walk from the pretty bastide village of Castelsagrat, where you will find a bar-restaurant, general store, baker, hairdresser and post office. There are three market towns within a 20 minute drive: Valence d’Agen, Moissac and Lauzerte. The larger town of Agen is 30 minutes away.
