The perfect place for great events


For the most important day in your life, Château du Faure can provide a setting and a range of optional services that allow you to create a unique and very personal experience. For the days you are here, a beautiful and characterful 18th century estate in the French countryside is your own.

With 25 bedrooms (22 en-suite) on a 20 acre estate, a dining room that can seat up to 60 and a 200m² salon for celebrating, Château du Faure can deliver your dream wedding with the added bonus of being exclusively yours.

We offer a self-catered venue where you can be in complete charge of your celebration and we will ensure that the common rooms are set up to your requirements. Or we can provide full service and event management for your special day for a fee, from the wedding blessing, to the music, flowers, food and wine and fireworks at the end. Possibility to have Catholic, Anglican or Humanist ceremonies. Note that all ceremonies are blessings of a marriage that will have taken place in a civil ceremony, and there are some qualification hurdles to be overcome.

The estate is full of character, with stone walls and beams in abundance. The furnishing of the bedrooms is tasteful with a rustic feel.

Our team has an excellent service record: from the chefs we use, to the serving and housekeeping team, to our musicians in jazz, rock & roll and classical music. The fact that we own the whole estate offers you a great deal of flexibility in the running of the event.

French Country Weddings describes well what we do: rural, a little rustic and very personal. The venue and experience will suit couples who prefer informality, intimacy and being with friends in a beautiful environment. We provide the setting for you to create exactly what you want.

A visit is essential since there are numerous choices to be made on the details of the event.

Music events

The Château is the birthplace of the Orpheus and Bacchus Music Festival and remains an ideal location for chamber music and jazz festivals.

Birthdays and anniversaries

There are few better ways to celebrate your birthday or wedding anniversary, whatever day of the year it is, than to book one of our houses. Except in peak times it is possible to book for just two to four nights, and we can help you organise an occasion to your requirements, be it a chef, a band, a pianist, fireworks - you name it. Link your celebration to a fabulous dinner with great wines, a tasting at a wine château, a professional fireworks display, or concert or dance party and you can have a truly memorable occasion with family or friends, filling the time exactly as you wish. Remember too that outside summer months, air fares are extremely reasonable.
