Château de St Loup is a magical wedding venue located south of the Loire Valley, France, in the little village of Saint-Loup-sur-Thouet.

We both like to call it the “Puss in Boots” château as it was previously owned by the Marquee Caravas, who inspired Charles Perraud to create the “Marquee de Carabas” in his famous tale.

The grounds sleep up to 40 people in various bedrooms and a brilliantly restored dungeon.

What we really like there, is that you can feel at home and use the many different spaces to manage surprises during your whole event.

First imagine having your ceremony by the river; then let your guests cross the romantic bridge and walk along a graceful alley of high trees.

When arrived to a large blue door on the façade, your guests will discover an enchanting garden: among the orange trees and jasmine bushes, tables will have been set up for an outside meal. Later, dance in the Orangerie…and enjoy the rest of the night!

In the morning, you and your guests could enjoy a picnic in the orchard. As for the Friday evening, we would suggest a concerto in the music lounge, followed by a feast in the dining room of the château.

The owner, Charles-Henri, is a wonderful man who will share with you the anecdotes of the place, as well as his local knowledge about the best suppliers of the area.

We think Château de St Loup would be perfect for couples who appreciate historic buildings and wish to be “lords of the manor” for their stay at this wedding venue in France.

- Standard of the Chateau and grounds were incredible - of any places we viewed it had the most 'wow' factor and very well kept while retaining its historic medieval feel.
- Very personal, friendly, funny and accommodating owner - Charles Henri - took us on a detailed tour of the Chateau and spent time explaining the history of the castle and area.
- Very reasonable price
- Lots of information on service providers (caterers, bands, florists etc)
- Experienced with different types of weddings and had lots of recommendations
- Able to cater for different wedding styles and entertainment ideas for guests - e.g. gave examples of murder mystery events, BBQs, hot air balloons
- Beautiful local village

- Perhaps a little larger than we would need but this is just due to the size of our wedding.
