It’s St Valentine’s Day, a day for romance.  If you’re thinking of letting the arrow fly and popping the question the next step will be – where will you tie the knot?  Well what’s more romantic than the prospect of a wedding celebration in a château in France – le pays d’amour!

Since our inception we have been busy compiling information on the Escape to the Château DIY château venues which have been featured on Channel 4 and in particular details on those promoting themselves as wedding venues.  We have concurrently been sourcing many other châteaux which have not been featured on the TV programme which are absolutely gorgeous and not to be missed.  The list will be released soon, please email us to be alerted once it is available.

We have recently received inquiries asking for recommendations on LGBT friendly wedding venues and we are pleased to announce that we have an initial list of beautiful châteaux ready to host you on your special day.

According to Wikipedia “France has frequently been named one of the most gay friendly countries in the world” and so we have identified some select châteaux in France (with more to come) which are LGBT friendly where you will have the amazing experience you are seeking on this special day.  We also identified a service which offers unique ceremonies wedding celebrant services.

Many of you may not think that such an amazing experience and venue is not within your budget but that is absolutely not the case.  As an example, the boutique Château de Vaudezert in Normandy is easily accessible by ferry for you and your guests.  They are just finishing up restoration of their wedding suite and offer weddings (outdoor or indoor in case of inclement weather) for up to 40 guests starting from just £3950 – try getting that in the UK!  They are now taking bookings for 2020 and with an offer like this why hot pop the question on this lover’s day and book your dream wedding?

Please share our website www.chateauxescapesfrance.com with your friends and be sure to come back as we grow with lots more beautiful châteaux venues to let you know about.


Happy St Valentine’s Day from Chateaux Escapes France
