   Weddings, Celebrations and More!


Château Forge du Roy is the perfect venue for small, intimate weddings.  Limited to an extra 20 guests, a wedding at The Forge will be relaxing and treasured moments with help from their Concierge service and, if you desire, their expert wedding planner, Beth.  Concierge service is also offered for those who wish to bring a group of friends or family to stay at the Château to celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday.

The Estate Managers who live on site will be there to greet your guests and attend to all your needs while remaining a discreet presence.
  This romantic event, shared with your family and friends, will be filled with wonderful memories of your marriage in France.

Château Forge du Roy is eager to host its next perfect French wedding, complete with croquembouche wedding cake.  Friends and family will share the bride and groom's special day in a setting that will long be remembered for its grandeur, elegance and romance.


This magnificent château, set on 184 picturesque acres, is an inspiring setting for photo shoots.  A small river, a lake, woodlands, meadows and several fine 17th century buildings provide a variety of backdrops to attain the most creative results.

Paul and Jennifer, the estate managers at The Forge, will be happy to make arrangements for you to experience an exciting hot air balloon adventure high over the enchanting Dordogne.  Or, you may want to stay on the ground and have a wine tasting at the Château, and that can be scheduled as well.  You will find the local wine producers who visit with their wines very informative and the local wines quite good!
