If getting married among the vines is your dream destination wedding, then head 30 minutes outside of Marseille to the 22 hectares of vineyards at Villa Baulieu where you’ll be transported into vast landscapes of one of the largest wine growing properties in Provence…and a perfect vineyard wedding location! The property is ultra-private and isolated from its neighbors, which means seclusion at it’s best and no late night music curfew for your big day here!
This Italian style 17th century villa has an incredible entrance lined by grand and iconic Cyprus trees. From the moment you enter the property, you know something magical will take place. The luscious gardens make a superb spot for a wedding ceremony with a variety of tucked away cozy spaces for guests to enjoy. The geometrical Versailles-style hedged gardens, fountains, and cascades allow for incredible al fresco dining and dancing, following your vows. The views to the wooded hillsides and vineyards give your guests serenity and peace throughout the entire event experience, and of course make for wonderful wedding photo backdrops too.
This memorable vineyard wedding location welcomes a maximum number of 200 guests outdoors or indoors for up to 60 guests for a seated dinner. For a rain plan accommodating more than 60 guests, a structure or tent would need to be built.
Regardless of where on property you opt to celebrate, our guests always enjoy the additional auxiliary events surrounding the big day almost as much! Host your group for wine safaris in 4x4s and explore the vast hectares of vineyards before wine tasting and a fabulous brunch! Villa Baulieu is an ideal location for the entire wedding weekend, especially for wine lovers.
Must Know Before You Book: Because this is a vineyard wedding location, the villa does require events to use their Chateau Baulieu wines, though exceptions can be made with a corkage fee. The property also requires a full buyout or privatization in order to host events. In the peak summer months of July and August, a minimum buyout of seven days is required. For shorter buyout periods, consider a destination wedding here in June or September.
