French chateau wedding
French chateau wedding created the right way is a happening straight out of a fairy tale. Chateau Challain in the Loire Valley is one of the most picturesque French castles available for events. Our clients from Russia chose the chateau themselves before asking Magic Day to take over the event design and planning.
The Chateau de Challain is situated just thirty minutes from the town of Angers, and one hour from the airport of Nantes located in the Loire Valley, the famous region of Castles.
Chateau de Challain is known as the “Petit Chambord”. The Castle is located at the corner of a tranquil village in the western part of Loire Valley.
The magic of Chateau Challain starts as you approach the town of Challain-la-Potherie, at the first glimpse of the gothic towers, peaking above the village rooftops and varied tree line. You cross the threshold of the Challain estate through the imposing guard building, and this is where the fairytale comes alive. You are amazed from the first moment you walk in It is an amazing venue for your French chateau wedding.
The Castle welcomes guests with gorgeous suites and function spaces for their chateau events in France. Every room is designed for the best comfort and shines with the grace and splendor of the glamorous age of “La Belle Epoch”.
