Chateau De Pondres
Located in the beautiful region of Gard, South of France, Chateau de Pondres is a luxurious, 4-star destination wedding venue. It is a perfect chateau for couples who want a top-notch French destination wedding with stress free planning. The main building is a grand edifice of beautiful stone, and the interiors reflect organic elements in its design.
Stage the wedding ceremony in the manicured Jardins a la Française, or in the consecrated chapel on the property that can host up to 30 people. After the blessing, lead your destination wedding guests on a stroll through the incredible, 15 hectares park to discover the river, fountains and mills.
Gather your guests for wedding reception drinks in the gardens where petit marquees are set up to provide shade.
There are several options for your wedding dinner: choose either a marquee set up in the park of the chateau (the marquee is included in the rental price of the chateau) or use one of the 5 function rooms for a more intimate party.
You can make the most of the outside and use the majestic sun terrace – La Cour d’Honneur – overlooking the valley.
On the day after your French destination wedding, just relax under the sun and have a tasty brunch before heading to the swimming pool. If you’re a food lover, you’ll also like the fact that this venue has its own gastronomic restaurant which provides fantastic food. The chef, trained in some of the best Michelin restaurants in the region, will be available to you to produce a bespoke wedding dinner that will be unforgettable.
In terms of accommodation, the chateau sleeps forty four guests. Twenty people in the ten lovely rooms of the chateau, and twenty four people in the twelve rooms which are located in the Moulins (Mills). Finally, let’s not forget to mention that there is a helipad on the grounds and the helicopter ride from Montpellier airport to the chateau takes only 12 minutes!
