About Chateau de Varennes
Named by CNN among the top ten best wedding venues worldwide, Château de Varennes is a luxury estate to hire for weddings, family holidays and corporate workshops. We are experts in destination weddings and we can host intimate events as well as big affairs. Located in the sunny South-Eastern part of France amidst the vineyards of Beaune in Burgundy, the property has belonged to the same family for 400 years and was recently fully remodeled to the highest standards. Many activities are offered on and off-site (cooking, enology, pool, tennis etc).

What type of couple would fall in love with your venue and why?
Our couples are usually high-net-worth individuals who are used to a luxury lifestyle. They are seeking to have a unique and meaningful celebration in France because it is a dream destination for a wedding. They are coming from all over the world (mostly US, Australia, Asia, and the UK) and they are attracted by the amazing quality of service which is offered by our historic wine region of Burgundy. The luxury industry is very strong in France and thus giving us easy access to the finest produce and the best wedding vendors.
Why we love it…
We love the dreamy tree-lined driveway that leads you to this picturesque, grand Chateau set on acres of pristine garden. Each room spills with character and French charm.
For the couple…
Looking for an all-inclusive, high-end venue with access to the finest produce and vendors in the south of France. The Chateau is in the perfect location for the couple who appreciate the wine of the region and who want a destination wedding without worrying about a language barrier, as Chateau de Varennes can help plan every detail, even from afar.
For a large wedding, we envision long tables outside covered in light-washed linens set beneath strings of fairy lights to create an elegant, enchanting atmosphere. Adorn the tables with vintage, Parisian crockery, candelabras and foliage to stay in theme with the grand Chateau. A palette of soft tones and white florals would complement the facade of the venue beautifully.
