  3. Discovering the location

    Through these visits, you will be able to discover the castle, rebuilt in the 15th century on the foundations of an old medieval stronghold, then transformed in the 16th century into a manor house. The castle has conserved a square dungeon surmounted by machicolations, an interior courtyard with Renaissance wooden galleries, and a rampart walkway. On the first floor of the tower is the chapel decorated with exquisite sculpted wooden panels. The southeast tower houses the dungeons, while the main house opens onto the kitchens and their monumental fireplace adorned by the Lords of the Magdeleine coat of arms.
    The castle's park is adorned with hundred-year-old trees and a large central lawn, offering a breathtaking view of the castle and its vineyard.

    Built in the 17th century, the castle's cellar has an impressive wood structure and imposing freestone walls. Formerly used as a vat room where large 235 hl oak casks were stored, today it is a reception venue for weddings, seminars, and gala dinners.

Weddings: an exceptional place for an unforgettable wedding

  1. Cocktail

    Built in the 15th century, atop an old medieval fortress and classified as a historical monument, the Château de Corcelles is an exceptional setting for your special day.

    Cocktails can be served in the majestic park adorned with century-old trees and a vast lawn. Garden furniture is available to create small lounge areas. The buffet tables can be set up in the shade of the trees. Surrounded by the Beaujolais vineyards, heritage lovers will appreciate the view of the castle in its natural and peaceful surroundings.

  2. Lunch / dinner

    The Château's cellar hosts prestigious lunches and dinners. Built at the end of the 17th century, it features an impressive wood frame constructed by the companion-carpenters of the time. Renovated with simplicity and keeping with the site's spirit, the cellar combines waxed concrete and iron beams with wood and old stones, giving it a contemporary feel without disrupting the atmosphere of this historic setting. It adapts easily to any type of decoration.

    It offers an exceptionally large space that can accommodate more than 400 people for a sit-down dinner along with a dance floor. Large linen curtains allow you to rearrange the space as desired. It is possible to create a warm and pleasant space in the reception room as it can be easily adapted to any number of guests. Round tables and chairs designed by Pascal Mourgue are made available to create a welcoming and elegant atmosphere. The central bay window allows you to enjoy the breathtaking view of the castle as it lights up at nightfall.
