Château Grimaldi at Puyricard, located near Aix-en-Provence, is a mansion built within the ruins of a 16th-century château once belonging to the Archbishops of Puyricard. If a wedding venue with ancient ruins has been on your bucket list, you may have found your home!
The property boasts an Italian-style feeling with its garden sculptures and painted yellow stone stucco on the main mansion structure. And to have its own ruins on property, it doesn’t get more special than that!
For your wedding ceremony, host your vows within the incredible ancient ruins located in the gardens of the estate. The timeless elegance this setting truly sets the tone for something magical to ensue. A ceremony here will not soon be forgotten by a single guest!
For cocktails, wedding groups have many options to choose from, depending on your personal preferences. I love the Versailles labyrinth-style gardens for drinks or alternatively, the olive tree garden areas. Both are beautiful, just different in appeal. And both fit nicely with the ceremony at a wedding venue with ancient ruins within it.
When it comes time to celebrate at the reception, I suggest dinner al fresco in the charming courtyard (for up to 100 guests), set in the amazing gardens of the property.
For something your guests may have never experienced before, consider this sublime wedding venue with ancient ruins. Vogue Magazine had elected the Chateau Grimaldi as one of the outstanding and unique rental spot.
The property required a minimum stay of 4 days. If you are interested to get married during the busiest months of the year, the required minimum stay is a week.
Embrance the ancient setting of the ruins and consider more rustic touches for your reception decor paired with formal attire and your photos will be magnificant!
We are happy to help you navigate with this venue.
