Since the 14th century, many castles have stood upon the same foundations. The ancestral home of countless noble families deeply root the estate in French history. Royal ties to King Louis XIV make Château de la Basmaignée a unique place of considerable historic significance. An extensive rebuilding project finished during the roaring twenties saw Château de la Basmaignée reborn once more… Bigger and grander for a new century. A Neo gothic hunting lodge to entertain high society, and a statement of excess, beauty and wealth.
The château sits on the edge of its own ancient forest, teeming with deer, wild boar, and red squirrels. The open parkland, medieval lake and woodland pathways harbour many species, and are well suited to country walks and wildlife spotting.
Basmaignée is now available for exclusive French chateau wedding hire, including the vast parkland, forest, chapel, walled garden, guest house accommodation and not forgetting the château itself ; all perfectly equipped to host your extraordinary wedding.
