Feast your eyes on THE most magical Provence wedding venue, Château de Sannes! This stunning property features a manicured labyrinth garden, multiple swimming pools both indoor and outdoor, tall cypress trees, olive groves and onsite guest accommodations. The château even produces its own wine and olive oil. It truly is one of those rare gems that has it all!
Château de Sannes is located in the Luberon (a massif in central Provence in Southern France that some say is “France at its finest”) just a hop, skip and a jump from Aix en Provence. From Paris, you can take the TGV train into Aix en Provence train station and then drive about 40 minutes. If you prefer to fly, the Marseille Provence Airport is only a 40 minute drive from the château.
When you enter the property from the front gate, the drive up to this Provence wedding venue offers views of a windmill, tall trees and leads you directly in front of the main château. The front lawn of the main château has a beautiful view of the frog pond just in front all the way down to the pool on the terrace below.
The property is so vast that is allows for many different event configurations. It is possible to have a ceremony in the olive groves or in front of the chateau. In fact, the bride can make her grand entrance through the labyrinth garden of manicured hedges and tall cypress trees, which then leads her down to her poolside ceremony!
Cocktails can also be enjoyed poolside or on the grass in front of the château under the trees. Rosé anyone?! There are also many dinner location options on site. Whether it’s dinner down by the pool, in front of the château or near the bergerie where there is a grand tent, the scenery at this Provence wedding venue is second to none.
Last year I was lucky enough to plan and design both an editorial shoot AND a real wedding at this venue and I cannot wait to go back! If you’re looking for your perfect Provence wedding venue, Château de Sannes should definitely be on your short list. Let me know how I can help!
