Frequently Asked Questions

When can we visit the property to decide if the venue it right for us?
We do visits during the week when the property is not rented. Please contact us to arrange a time
that suits.

At what time can we come in and how late can we stay?
Check-in is at 18h and check-out is at 10h. However, we are flexible and will try to accommodate you as best as possible.

Can we organize an after-wedding day?
Yes.

Can we have the room the day before to decorate, install equipment and bring supplies?
Yes.

Can we hire our own DJ?
No. We have state of the art equipment which can only be used by one of our partner DJ’s. Please contact us for details. Wedding bands are welcome.

Who takes care of cleaning?
The lodgings, tent and barn must be left as you found them, bins emptied and everything back in its place. 

Why do we have to clean if we pay a cleaning fee?

The fee covers the cost of cleaning the linens, towels etc. and the preparation of the bedrooms, rest of the chateau, hunt room and barn for the following guests. For this reason, we require that you leave the property clean as you found it, with all chairs and furniture where they were when you found them. If the property is not left in a satisfactory state, any additional cleaning costs we incur will be removed from your security deposit. For those renting the watermill and farmhouse, additional cleaning fees apply.

Why do we have to put all tables, chairs and benches back where we found them after our event? 

We ask you put everything back where you found it before departure. This does not take long if everyone in your group helps! If this is not done, we will have to hire external labor to do the work and we will pass the cost on to you.

Do you mandate a particular catering company?
No, see our list of partners.

Do you have a dance floor?
Yes, we have a permanent dance floor in the main room of the barn.

Will a Gite de Miserai representative be present throughout the evening?
No.

Can we freely decorate the property?
Yes, however streamers, confetti and candles are prohibited as well as all installations leaving traces such as nails, screws, etc. Balloon/lantern releases are also strictly forbidden.

Do you have a coat room?
Yes.

Is there access for the disabled?
Yes, you must enter through the main gate; we also have specially equipped toilets. Please let us know if you are expecting one or more persons with reduced mobility.

Can I use the hunt room / pool or exotic room for my reception?
No, these rooms are locked during receptions. You can use them any other time.

Do you have a kitchen?
We have a caterer’s tent as well as a room in the barn equipped with a large fridge. This room is not suitable for food preparation. You will need to be sure your caterer comes with their own equipment for cooking.

Can we prepare food on site for our event?
No. You must tell your caterer to come with their own equipment. Our kitchens are only for the use of guests staying in the lodgings.

What are the consequences of cancellations?
A deposit of 30% of the rental price is required upon booking; the balance is payable no later than 30 days before rental. If you cancel before 30 days, you lose your deposit if you cancel within 30 days, you lose the entire fee.

Can we bring our pets?
No animals are allowed in the buildings, including the lodgings. We have a kennel on site for dogs.
