Luxury French Chateau

Named by CNN among the top ten best wedding venues worldwide, the Château de Varennes is a luxury estate to hire for family holidays, weddings, corporate functions or other special events. We also welcome b&b stays and we have a bistro restaurant open for residents. Please use this link if you would like to settle your individual accommodation: booking platform 

Located in the sunny South Eastern part of France amidst the finest vineyards of Beaune in Burgundy, the  property is belonging to our family for 400 years and was fully refurbished. We have all the modern comfort and we are located in a beautiful region known for great sightseeing and producing the finest wines in the world.

If you would like to get a better idea of the venue, you can watch this video of the chateau tour.

We are specialist of destination weddings and we can host intimate events as well as big functions (check the reception venue section for a description of our event facilities). Outdoor weddings are often possible as South Burgundy is enjoying a warm and sunny weather from Spring to Autumn (our pool is open from March to early November). We even have gorgeous lavender fields on site. We are also offering the kind of services expected in a boutique hotel or a modern luxury resort (private chef, airport transfers, concierge services etc.). 

Besides CNN, we got many other awards, a few of which are listed on our press page. You can also check our FAQs for more information regarding our history and our review page for testimonials and references. Please make sure to avoid confusing us with other chateaux who may have the same name but do not have as high standards^^

A few pictures and videos of previous weddings are featured in our real weddings page. You can also check Facebook and instagram to follow our news.

Our rates depend on the season and size of the party, please contact us through our contact form for quotes and more information. Outside of weddings, we are also open for birthday parties, family celebrations, corporate workshops and individual stays. Our offer for family friendly retreats is described on this page and we have the following on-site activities: tennis court, big outdoor pool (heated if necessary), swings/kids playground, ping-pong table, cooking classes, floral design, gardening, oenology etc
