We fell in love with the back in 2017 when we visited for the first time for Bedat fest, the amazing energy we felt when we turned into the tree lined drive, is the feeling we get every single time we visit.
Arriving at the front door we were left gazing at the beautiful stone of the . Within minutes of being there we turned to each other and both said this is the place we want to get Married.
Roll forward 1 year and we were back again, this time to get engaged. During a beautiful sunset down by the large scenic lake. That is when the wedding planning started.
Although we had dreamt of a wedding in France for a long time the decision wasn't one taken lightly. Living in the UK we knew it would be difficult for guests to make the long trip across France but as soon as the Wedding arrived, we knew we had made the right choice. Just seeing the amazed faces of our family and friends as they all arrived, everyone could see why we had chosen this place.
The wedding had everything we wanted for the day we are going to treasure forever. With the situated at the top of the hill, every direction you look you would see the most beautiful surroundings, fields as far as the eye can see.
All of our guests loved the whole experience, whether they were staying at the or in the surrounding area there was always plenty to do. The has a heated pool so you can lap up the sun drinking great local wine whilst the kids run around and play on the large grounds. There were also lots of local activities such as the water park, paintballing and great amenities selling local produce.
The itself is treasured by the owners so it was well kept, with lots of large bedrooms to accommodate our family for the wedding. It was also great to hear all the amazing stories and history the has to tell.
We truly loved having our wedding here and couldn't imagine it being anywhere else. You won't find many places like this!
We cannot wait to visit again sometime soon.

Have just spent a wonderful week in Bédat, a very charming in a fabulous situation. I awoke every morning to see the snow capped Pyrenees, I felt I could almost touch them. The sky at night was ablaze of red and as I lay in bed with the shutters open , the sky was lit up with too many stars to count. There are lovely walks and the is very comfortable, with traditional log fires. The food was exceptional, the duck lasagne is an absolute must.
Situated in a very little known area of south west France , not overrun with 100’s of tourists it has a plethora of historic towns to visit and some of the best restaurants in France on the doorstep.
I would return as soon as I can, and would even contemplate using it as a film and stills location.

Wedding 30 June to 4 July 2022
Where do I start? Simply the wedding venue of dreams… we couldn't recommend Chateau du Bédat enough. We fell in love with the chateau and it's beautiful grounds as soon as we laid eyes on it… for us nothing compares. We relaxed the second we drove onto the breath-taking entrance avenue of trees. It's tranquil, rural grounds are that of fairytales and the chateau itself is just Devine- we felt at home instantly. Richard, Anna and their wonderful family were the perfect hosts and went out of their way to ensure our wedding was everything we'd dreamed of. Thank you again to you all- your chateau will hold the most beautiful memories for not only us, but our family and friends. We hope to return in the not too distant future to holiday.
