Home of fairytale castle weddings

 How can we imagine a classy wedding in France without a castle? Castles are a great part of the history and culture of France. The main advantage to getting married in a castle is that you can plan a large wedding, with as many guests as you desire. The spaces are wide, and the surroundings abound in accommodation.

  Château Challain is one of these. Cynthia Nicholson and her devoted team will welcome you.
