Luxury French Chateau

Named by CNN among the top ten best wedding venues worldwide, the Château de Varennes sur le Doubs is a luxury estate to hire for family holidays, weddings, corporate functions or other special events. Located in the sunny South Eastern part of France amidst the finest vineyards of Beaune in Burgundy, the  property is belonging to the same family for 400 years and was recently fully refurbished by a famous designer team. We have all the modern comfort and many activities are possible on-site (a brand new tennis court, a big outdoor pool (heated if necessary), swings/kids playground, ping-pong, cooking classes, floral design, gardening, oenology etc) 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 property, 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 October). We are also offering the kind of services that you would expect in a boutique hotel or a modern luxury resort (private chef, airport transfers, concierge services etc.).

Our offer of family friendly holiday camp is described on this page

We got many industry 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 from previous guests. 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. A property tour is available on this video: chateau tour. You can also follow us on Facebook and instagram (@chateaudevarennes) for more recent 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 for family camps during the school holidays.
