The château sits on the edge of its own ancient forest with its medieval lake and pathways teaming with wildlife and acres of open parkland, wildlife spotting is popular with many species harboring within the private estate.
Château de la Basmaignée specializes in French château weddings, but we also have a lot more to offer.
If you want to say “yes” to your other half but in a more intimate way, we can also create your perfect elopement here at Basmaignée, whether it’s just for the two of you, or for you and a very small handful of your loved ones. Fine cuisine, talented photographer, beautiful flowers, intimate ceremony, you won’t have anything to envy to big weddings.
Your best friend has already booked her wedding venue, but now that she has stumbled upon Château de la Basmaignée she wishes she would have found us sooner? Why don’t you hold her bachelorette weekend here?! Depending on what kind of girl she is, we can help you organize the bachelorette weekend of her dreams, with great food, a masseuse, yoga classes, sport outings, murder mystery, and much more. We can also adapt these fantastic weekends to other occasions, such as a birthday party, a baby shower, or just because you want to celebrate your friendship with your special girls.
No special occasion, you don’t want anything fancy, just a relaxed and peaceful time in the French countryside? Our beautifully renovated guest house is available to hire all year long. Whether it’s just for a long weekend or for a couple of weeks, you will forget all about your everyday life worries during your stay here, relaxing to the sounds of birds chirping, spotting families of deer in the forest while enjoying an evening walk, and exploring the countryside.
If you are a business or an organization looking for a quiet venue to hold a training or a team-building day, or a seminar, we can also accommodate you. We offer a great day package to businesses, including media equipment (and soon fiber optic internet), breakfast, lunch and enough coffee for everybody to stay focused all day. Not only you will get your team trained, but you will do so in a magnificent and peaceful surrounding, turning a work day into a moment they will appreciate and remember.
Not interested in any of this, but you still would like to come to Château de la Basmaignée? Every last Sunday of the month, between April and September, we open our grounds to walkers. Between 2 and 6pm you are welcome to come and visit the park and the woods for a relaxing walk.
