Courcelles Le Roy

A castle and its romantic village.

Located less than 2 hours south of Paris, in a calm and protected environment, the Château de Courcelles le Roy is the idyllic venue to host the most beautiful weddings.

The venue, surrounded by natural woods and a pond, can sleep up to 55 guests in its 4 annexes. It also has various outdoor and indoor reception spaces to host your ceremonies, drinks receptions and dinners.

Behind the castle, near the pond, you will find that the atmosphere is quite unique and peaceful. Come sundown, the light pierces through the castle, almost like an invitation to take a walk in the woods.

This fantastic location often arouses the curiosity of those who are in love with history and old stones. The French King Charles VII spent some time in the castle, and met with his lover Agnes Sorel to enjoy a romantic getaway.

A few centuries later, the General MacDonald who was made Marshal of France by Napoleon Bonaparte, fell in love with the place. Originally from Scotland, MacDonald is also a regional character: he grew up in Sancerre and spent the rest of his life at Courcelles le Roy. He is responsible for the building of the great pyramid, located on the main road leading to the castle, in memory of his third wife.

Today, continuing its long-standing tradition, this venue celebrates its history by hosting sumptuous weddings and private events.

You can become the Lords and Ladies of the castle for a weekend!
