We begin our visit with a little tour of this magnificently refined creation, inspired by the style of Gustave Eiffel. Made from steel and glass, The Marquise Pavilion boasts original architecture combining modernity and classicism. Its large bay windows offer a breath-taking view of the Chateau and its gardens. You will approve of this outstanding venue, wherein you can choose your desired colour scheme and entertainment (TV, projection screen and wireless microphone all at your disposal.)

Let’s continue our visit by going back to the impressive main house. It’s like travelling back in time as you enter the rooms, entirely restored by decorator-upholsterer specialists, architects and painters who engaged in prestigious renovations (Ritz, Chateau de Versailles, etc.). Bridal suite, bedrooms, fitted kitchen, the Chateau combines comfort and freedom for both a pleasant and exotic experience.
