Vallery, a French venue destination

Thanks to all the bride and groom...

The brides and grooms who have chosen Vallery as their real wedding venue over the last 30 years are thanked over a dedicated page of this website. The wealth of their cultures, their traditions and their love have strengthened our resolve to restore life to this Renaissance jewel. We have been able to bring the venue's architecture and its festive traditions back to life. This French destination has fond memories of all the brides and grooms.
And so many of them have expressed their joy in our visitors' book and on social media - thank you for that. The book "Princes, Muses and Weddings" by P. Vansteenberghe looks back at the celebrations that have taken place in this citadel since its rebirth. It explores the arts of fireworks, food, dance and seduction, from their medieval origins to today's festivities.

History and your own story

Jacques d’Albon entrusted the construction of the Renaissance part of the building to Pierre Lescot. At the time, this famous architect was still working on the Louvre, yet still managed to make Vallery "the most magnificent chateau in the world". Famous French writer Brantôme was dazzled by the location’s sumptuous nature and wrote: "...Those who then beheld Vallery fully furnished could neither appraise nor prize its riches..." The property was portrayed in La Princesse de Clèves as the castle of utter seduction and love.
A fact to which History certainly bears witness: Henri IV himself once ventured into the estate in disguise in order to seduce Charlotte de Montmorency, who lived at Château de Vallery and with whom the king had fallen madly in love. Vallery was also home to the Princesses and Princes of Condé, all of whom now rest at the local church in Vallery. Today, this chateau could be entirely yours for your wedding. "No finer setting can there be in which your love to pledge" Ronsard 1555.

a chateau with a pool

The swimming pool extends forth from the Oriental Pavilion: it is protected by the medieval ramparts to the north and opens up to overlook the Rose Garden to the south. The pool is heated all year round. More than a chateau rental; your French destination wedding in all seasons.

This pool with garden views is flanked by 2 arbors, perfect for hosting brunch as well as your perfect wedding dinner the night before. In the summer, the scents of the Rose Garden drift beneath the arbors, where guests can also marvel at the sight of the fully lit-up chateau and gardens.

“We visited many chateaux and knew within 10 minutes Château de Vallery was were we wanted to have our wedding. Jonathan was so accommodating allowing us to visit late on a weekend before our flight out. And the exceptional support and accommodation never stopped.

The team is very responsive and they work overtime to make sure everything is perfect. Looking back, we couldn't have imagined having our special moment anywhere else. Such a beautiful place with such an amazing team. Thank you!"

“When we first visited Chateau de Vallery in 2018, we fell in love and knew that this was the place for our special day. Words could not describe how we felt about the Chateau and so, a year and a half later, we travelled back with our friends and family from Australia to experience our fairy tale wedding at the Chateau.

Patrice, Jonathan and Ariane, thank you so much! From planning everything for the wedding with you from the other side of the world, to the time during our stay, you were always so prompt and added to the magical experience, always going out of your way to make every moment perfect.

Whenever we think back to this special time (daily) or talk with our guests, we still cannot believe the time that we spent at the Chateau. While you are there, you forget about the rest of the world as the grounds, the building and the people make you feel like you are living back when the Chateau was first built!

We will always cherish and never forget our memory of our time at Chateau de Vallery”

"Absolutely wonderful place to hold a wedding. Words cannot describe how magnificent this place is to hold the party of a lifetime. We got married in August and spent four days at the Chateau. Jonathan and the team looked after us extremely well from the first time we visited and right through to when we left for our honeymoon."

We visited the Chateau as a potential wedding venue over 2 years ago and fell in love at first sight... every moment spent within its walls is truly magnificent and believe me when I say the photos and videos do not do this incredible and unique venue justice. Our wedding was an event I never even dreamed possible because of this stunningly romantic venue and the absolutely fantastic team that run it. Our guests were truly enchanted by the Chateau and it's eclectic mix of rooms and styles and it was so special to be able to host them while also ensuring the day ran seamlessly with the help of the team on the ground who were so kind and diligent and helpful in the run up to our big day.

I cannot express in words how gorgeous this place is- anyone even considering hosting their wedding here should book immediately, it is one of a kind and I could literally cry tears of joy writing this review as it is just so beautiful."
