La Frassinede

With its setting of the cornflower blue skies of summer and deep Pyrannean beauty by winter, La Frassin├Ęde is as close an approximation to a French heaven as I've come – and a perfect wedding or honeymoon hideaway. It makes me think a little of a French Kate Moss-esque wedding and would be a fitting venue for a chic, poetic big day.
An ancient former wine cave in the realms of Fitou country, the bucolic residence features reclaimed 18th century fireplaces, a courtyard garden, 15m swimming pool, freestanding rolltop baths, staggeringly pretty original antique pieces and elegant fabric furnishings that lend the pale amber and honey stoned building a real-world, undone luxury feel.
Imagine a garden ceremony among the lavender and heady scents of trees, followed by a long, wine-laced wedding breakfast that leads into a night of dancing under vast skies of stars. Then retreat to one of the six contemporary yet charming bedroom suites for first wedded night.
Available as an exclusive hire and comfortably accommodating up to 14 guests (plus two staff bedrooms), this venue is the equivalent to your own boutique bolthole hotel, and private chefs can be arranged, in addition to the resident housekeepers.
