The perfect venue for an intimate wedding

A beautiful, tranquil 17th century chartreuse set in a 184 acre estate in the heart of the Dordogne. The Secret Garden is, possibly, the most important building of its kind in the entire Perigord region.  It sits in a wooded valley with extensive gardens, a swimming pool and a lake.  The Secret Garden is one of the prettiest places we know.  More than this, it is the most magical venue for an intimate wedding in France. There is a maximum sleeping capacity of twenty, so it is ideal for smaller events.  You can accommodate all of your guests on site in luxurious bedrooms.

Accommodation at The Secret Garden is across two buildings on opposite sides of the lawns. The Main House has six ensuite bedrooms and The Grange has four ensuite bedrooms.  Both properties have their own kitchen and dining facilities and each has a ground floor bedroom.

The pretty Manaurie river runs through the centre of the magnificent gardens.  You cross via the little wooden footbridge to a pergola, draped in wisteria, containing another outside dining area with barbecue.
Beyond the pergola is a large, heated swimming pool, with a pool house and sunbathing areas.

This wonderful venue for an intimate wedding is also the ideal setting for you to relax and enjoy all that this beautiful chartreuse has to offer.  It’s gentle pace leaves you free to create and share those memory-making moments with your family and friends.
