For a wedding or a special occasion Chateau d’Arlens is magic. Why ? Because of its position within its own protective farm land and woods. An oasis enhanced by its magnificent trees and far reaching views. The view of the Pyrenees never cease to amaze. The old extensive stone barn to the west of the chateau houses many different areas under its one roof and the party barn (288m²) on the western end enjoys the most incredible sunsets and views out of its large glazed sliding doors. This big hall is magnificent with its ancient beams and giant supporting pillars. The floor is highly polished and excellent for dancing. The floor area can be reduced by dividing the barn with cotton ecru curtains hanging from any of the beams. The barn is dramatically lit by candles both in chandeliers and floral wall brackets. Candles that last 18 hours. Adjacent to the party barn are the cloakrooms and in house catering facilities either for in house catering or for outside caterers.
Smaller parties have also been hosted inside the chateau itself which can seat up to 80.
How the event is run depends on individual planning and of course the time of year. Chateau d’Arlens can provide a complete service. To name just a few … wedding planning, organising other accommodation for guests, booking hair appointments etc., organising the ceremony, planning the meal. But most of all the idea is that we are there for you, either to suggest, listen or enact your wishes. It is to help you realise your dream. It is what we enjoy doing the most. The time of year and of course the weather dictate to a certain extent how the chateau, party barn, gardens are used. This year every event utilised the property differently even though the weather was superb for all the weddings !
