Overseas venues Exotic touch Sprinkle your special day with a little overseas magic… That je ne sais quoi A French wedding in a beautifully restored château; chic yet natural and intimate. A ceremony with a magnificent valley view or held under a century-old oak tree, a reception on one of the large terraces and a candle-lit dinner among the trees in the park. Natural, elegant romance where nature meets history and culture is what Château de Redon can offer you. It is an 18th century château with a two-hectare private park offering a secluded location, perfect for wedding celebrations. The château has been completely renovated respecting authenticity, but with modern comforts seamlessly integrated (each room has an en-suite bathroom, some a separate dressing room). You can rely on the professional team to organise that once-in-a-lifetime event with a French touch. Known for their refinement, great care and an eye for detail, they are good at listening and can capture your wishes and make them come true.
