A prestigious setting for your Wedding

Constructed between the 14th and 18th centuries, the Château de Chasselas is of exposed stonework construction throughout. Its large inner courtyard, flanked by towers topped with glazed roof tiles make for a prestigious setting which your guests will love. You can host a wedding drinks reception in the lush château grounds beneath the castle walls. A helipad is also at your disposal.

Wooded grounds for Drinks

Make the most of the sunshine or enjoy the shade of our “Actinidia” (kiwifruit vines). Drinks receptions are usually hosted on this slightly raised area of lawn, which offers fine views over the surrounding vineyards and the grounds of the château below. This area can accommodate up to 200 people and there is a kitchen immediately adjacent to the garden for the use of caterers.
