  • The Chateau prides itself on having its own Chapel within the grounds; it’s the perfect location to witness your vows or you are welcome to use the extensive grounds for an outdoor ceremony.
  • On the first record of the chapel dates from the year 987. Built on a site going much further back to the times of pagan ritual, the chapel was probably modified in the following century when, by the year 1000, it had acquired its Early Romanesque style. Decorated with Italianate frescoes at the end of the 19th century, today it harbors the silent memory of the prayers that filled it down the years…
