Chateau de Puissentut

Visited and selected by Chateau Bee

Nestled amongst rolling hills, Chateau de Puissentut is a well-kept secret, a dreamy chateau in South of France that we love for many reasons…It will be a perfect setting for your wedding in France.

First we are particularly drawn to the distinctive appearance of the venue. Its half-timbered structure, complemented by sage-colored shutters and surrounded by blooming rose and lavender bushes, creates an ambiance reminiscent of an enchanting haven.

Then we love the interiors, which are authentic but with a contemporary twist. There, the creamy exposed stone walls, pastel touches and natural materials – oatmeal linen, white cotton quilts – have been beautifully paired with bold pieces of art and striking coloured walls.

In addition, the owners are very friendly and approachable; so you’ll feel very much at home at Chateau de Puissentut.

Now let’s run through your wedding there…

The blessing could take place in the 17th century Pigeonnier, an absolutely stunning place framed by 4 arches and boasting lovely views across the valley. Alternatively there is also a church nearby that could host your ceremony.

The wedding dinner will be held outside on the lawn or in the very pretty courtyard. Should, heaven forbid, the weather not be so inviting, then the light and airy barn is a fabulous option for a large banquet and party.

The owners will act as “wedding facilitators” by giving you their best recommendations of suppliers and by providing a package that includes tables and chairs, tableware and linen, lighting, a PA system for music and speeches, and set-up and coordination support on your wedding day.

The tables provided are stylish banquet tables, complimented by lovely wooden chairs: we love this type of wedding furniture at the Chateau Bee, as they are perfect for a boho chic wedding.

Finally on the day after, gather everyone for an informal brunch and pool party.

In terms of sleeping capacity, the domaine sleeps up to 27 adults in 14 bedrooms.

Things to do nearby:  

Chateau de Puissentut is located in the Gers in South West France. The Gers, fairly untouched by mass tourism, is a rural idyll that evokes the charm of Tuscany. There you will find rolling countryside peppered with medieval villages. Each of those villages holds weekly fêtes and marchés where you will be able to source local delicacies such as Armagnac or foie gras.
If you are after historical towns, head to Lectoure, (25 mins drive) which is full of bars, restaurants and boutiques. The town is known locally for its vibrant music and art scene, while the thermal spa reputedly has healing properties. Auch is the capital of the province and has a very pretty historical centre and an impressive cathedral.
Plenty of other activities are also possible during your stay at the chateau: wine and Armagnac tasting of course but also golf, canoeing, horse riding etc…

"Our four days spent at Puissentut at the end of September were absolutely fabulous. The wedding day was nothing short of magical. The beautiful, soulful house, the stunning views, the amazing hospitality and not to mention the perfect weather too."

"We recently got married at Chateau de Puissentut in the middle of a week long stay with 20 of our family and friends. We had the most incredible time, and were blown away with the setting, facilities, and hosts."


"We have just returned from spending a week here with friends and family, having travelled from Australia for our daughter's wedding. It was a truly wonderful place for a wedding, with the actual ceremony taking place in the ancient 'pigeonnier', looking out over fields of sunflowers."


"We celebrated our wedding at Puissentut and loved every moment we spent there. When researching for a place for our lifetime event we immediately felt that Chateau de Puissentut was what we were looking for."
