Experience serenity in this secluded 18th-century wine chateau where tranquility and elegance meet. Perched at the heart of Gaillac, this venue for intimate weddings in France offers luxury, comfort, and 100% fresh air from the nature that surrounds it. Vineyards, a picturesque park, a fragrant lavender field, and woodlands are only some of the sceneries that will greet you upon entry.
But more than that, this wedding chateau is a great starting point for tours in the bastides of South West France and UNESCO World Heritage sites in Carcassonne, Cahors, and other neighboring towns, a wonderful way to spend your honeymoon in France.
This wedding chateau in Galliac is most suitable for intimate weddings of up to 20. You can bring your small group with you in the middle of the woodlands under the shade of towering trees or at the park overlooking the vineyards for your intimate wedding ceremony.
An elopement for two, on the other hand, is best celebrated in the middle of the vineyards with the view of the chateau and the woodlands. You have plenty of options here for a ceremony en plein air.
Guests of the chateau are treated like friends, not paying customers. Your wedding reception here will feel like a family gathering where home-cooked meals are served using locally-sourced and mostly organic fresh and seasonal produce.
Breakfasts are served in one of the dining rooms, in a covered terrace, or in the orangery. Enjoy local breads, organic muesli, organic home-made yoghurt, freshly-squeezed orange juice, fresh fruits, and a choice of cheeses for breakfast.
Your guests can wait for you in the West Courtyard or in one of the chateau’s salons where they will be served with aperitifs while you take all the time that you need for the photoshoot. Dinner will follow on the terrace for an en plein air celebration or in one of the dining rooms, if you prefer a more cozy vibe for the reception.
Just let the staff know in advance if you have any dietary requirements, allergies or strong dislikes so they can consider it while preparing the dishes.
Comfort and luxury are the best words to describe the rooms in this 18th-century chateau. They have four types of accommodations to choose from - classic and superior rooms, and junior and deluxe suites. All guest rooms combine antique furniture with modern beds, shower areas, and bathrooms to provide maximum comfort while preserving the room’s historic vibe.
The timeless beauty of this chateau is made perfect by its location at the hillside, surrounded by a big tract of parkland, a lovely lily pond, roses, trees like cedars, oaks, olives, and courtyards. From the venue, you will enjoy the views of the vineyards, woodlands, lavender fields, and the rolling hills as far as the Montagne Noire.
Right inside the chateau’s premises, there’s an ozone-treated swimming pool for kids and adults to enjoy. If you want to go for some sports or just want to sweat it out in the morning, you can go to the tennis court or the fitness center. If relaxation is all that you want for your special day, we advise that you go strolling in the gardens or the park or jog in the vineyards surrounding the chateau.
We already mentioned that this venue is a great starting point to visit nearby historic and picturesque towns, and that’s what you can do the day after your ceremony. Go cycling around the rolling countryside or enjoy good canoeing at the Aveyron, while marveling at the views of the Gorge.
Visit churches, castles, and medieval bastide villages and be fascinated by the history of Tarn when you visit the magnificent Toulouse-Lautrec museum. If you want to discover more about the history and culture in South West France, visit the Unesco World Heritage sites in Albi, Rabastens, Cahors, and Carcassonne.
