Le Petit Valot

A rustic family venue

Located at the south of Paris, in a quiet and rural environment, 6 miles from Gien, Le Petit Valot, often described by its guests as an intimate family venue, is the perfect place for a wonderful wedding reception.

This former farmhouse surrounded by woods and meadows features a splendid barn, with apparent beams and stones. It can host a sit-down dinner for up to 170 guests. The 3 houses fully restored and decorated in the spirit of winter cabins offer 13 bedrooms, which can sleep up to 40 guests.

Outside, you will be able to enjoy the pool, surrounded by a large terrace with deckchairs, market umbrellas and sofas. There is also an area that has been specifically designed for symbolic ceremonies; it has wooden benches and a canopy. The stretch tent that is set up will be ideal if you need your drinks reception to be covered.

If you are getting married in the winter, the warm interiors of this venue will be perfect in order to create a magical Christmas-like atmosphere, as if you were in the mountains but 2 hours from Paris. Close your eyes and imagine the domain styled with tea-lights, folds of fabric, and faux furs.... Can you hear the fire crackling in the fireplace?

Winters have lovely sunny days, and if your guests are wrapped up warmly, an outdoor ceremony or an outdoor drinks reception will be even more original, and will leave you with memorable photos.

Treat yourself and your closed ones to a weekend of festivities at Le Petit Valot.
