Castelnau des Fieumarcon
A wedding or special event venue like no other! Castelnau Des Fieumarcon is a fortified stronghold which is over 800 years old and when you hold your special event there you and your guests take over the entire fortified village! The venue was once a thriving medieval village which has been brought back to life by its current owner for guests to celebrate their special events surrounded by the people who are important to them.
Castelnau Des Fieumarcon sits in an elevated location offering spectacular views of the Gascon countryside. Surrounded by antiques and art, guest accommodation for up to 80 people is within 14 individual houses (the village even has its own map of where you’re staying!). In addition to a banquet hall and open air chateau, there are many gardens and terraces from which to enjoy the view which also offer limitless possibilities for different areas to use during your wedding for dining, ceremony, cocktails and entertainments so your guests experience something new at every turn. The Chateau can host events for up to 200 guests.
Castelnau des Fieumarcon lies in the land of duck, foie gras, and Armagnac. The staff work with the best local caterers who use seasonal, local produce and pair local wines with canapés. There is also an onsite private chef (who has an award winning website) who will work with you to create bespoke menus to suit all styles and price considerations.
