Château du Rouët is one of the nicest places I’ve ever visited for a wedding – I’ll still be gushing about this place in years to come. I shared a few photos from inside Le Grande Maison but I took so many of the grounds, they need a post of their own.
Hydrangeas as big as your head!
This cat was so friendly. It ventured inside the main house to say hello, eat crisps from our hands and sat with us while we drank gallons of wine. I got chatting to the owner and I think she said it was called Moivat — or something along those lines. Another holiday, another cat friend. Shame I couldn’t take it home.
Our room was the one on the top floor and about the same size as the flat we lived in before moving here — either the flat was small or our room was very large. It had a great view over the grounds and ceremony below. Most importantly, a clear view of night sky for a star photo (one of their wedding presents).
Storm clouds rolled in the next morning. Most people were still asleep so I walked down to the vineyard and olive groves. Crickets were jumping around my feet and little did I know, bugs were feasting on my legs and they would look like pepperoni pizza a few hours later.
Mountain views were the icing on the cake.
