A true fairytale
I would 100% recommend Chateau de Bois Rigaud for a wedding. I can't praise the staff of the Chateau enough for their help. Our wedding was a true fairytale. We fell in love with Chateau de Bois Rigaud nearly 2 years before we got married. It is a perfect venue if you want a beautiful barn close from the iconic French regions of Dordogne and Charente.
An Unforgettable wedding
Thank you so much for making our wedding unforgettable, it really was the best day ever. The day was absolutely flawless. The weather was beautiful, everything ran smoothly and to schedule. The staff were very helpful throughout the whole day and night.
A stunning rustic barn in France
More than one year ago, we started looking for wedding venue in the South of France for our special day. We visited many chateaux across France such as Château Challain near Paris and the château d'Aleny in Burgundy. We also organized a viewing of château de Bouffémont near Paris and of Château du Bijou in Provence.
It took us some time to find the ideal place for our wedding day. We finally picked Château de Bois Rigaud in the Auvergne region because of its ideal location in the heart of France, not too far from Paris, Bordeaux and Haux.
