The history of this petite country house near Riberac takes us back to the 15th century but it is most remembered as the home of legendary Guy de Larigaudie. He is a French writer of Scout novel and travel books. The chateau enjoys frequent celebrity visits and is therefore kept "off the grid" to protect the privacy of its esteemed guests.
The chateau sleeps up to 16 guests in 8 bedrooms and can host weddings for up to 100 guests in the ornate function room. Whilst being a dedicated events venue, the chateau feels more like your home away from home rather than a formal prestige estate for weddings. So if you see your wedding day as a large family gathering instead of a formal event, then this chateau is definitely for you!
Although designed for intimate occasions, this country house near Riberac offers both indoor and outdoor options for couples. It has a restaurant within its humble halls, filled with classy murals that resemble a fine French courtyard.

There’s also a smaller dining area inside the chateau that can seat up to 12 persons. This area is more homey and casual.
But if you’re getting married in the castle on a fine sunny day, you better take advantage of its beautiful grounds, with a well-maintained grassland and fresh greeneries consisting of tall trees and thick bushes all over. There’s a small area right next to one of the chateau’s walls that’s covered with a white tent. As you enjoy the reception food served by the chateau’s in-house chef, your eyes will delight over the view of a healthy French landscape, mature gardens, and all the other pleasing natural elements of this venue.
