The qualities you should look out for when hiring a bespoke venue

It is one matter to hire a venue for your birthday party, bridal shower, romantic weekend, wedding or even corporate event. However, it is quite another thing to hire a truly bespoke venue – one that lives up to its billing with fastidious attention to detail, a supremely attentive customer service and, of course, plenty of scope for customisation in line with your specific requirements.

Here at Château Bouffémont near Paris, we have extensive experience of serving the most exacting needs of a wide range of clients interested in hiring our venue. It is partly as a consequence of this that we have also developed a keen appreciation of the qualities you are best-advised to seek in a property like ours.

Strong transport connections

Not all of the qualities that you should look for in a bespoke venue will be found within its walls or grounds. Close proximity to major metropolises and the associated high standard of transport connections will help to ensure that all of your prospective guests can reach your venue in timely fashion.

Château Bouffémont is one such distinguished venue, located just 30 kilometres from the centre of Paris and 20 minutes from International Charles de Gaule Airport.

Our venue being sited so near Paris, of course, also enables you and your guests to easily visit and appreciate many of the City of Lights’ attractions. Should this be desired, you may wish to consult The Telegraph’s insider guide to what to see and do in Paris.

Aesthetic appeal

Whatever the purpose for which you are hiring a bespoke venue, you should ensure that yours has no shortage of visual impact. A great-looking venue, inside and outside, will attract the admiration of your guests, with your choice of property also reflecting well on your own tastes and values – and in the case of corporate events, those of your brand.

The 19th-century haven that is Château Bouffémont can certainly claim to score highly for cosmetic flair. This noble stone-built residence is set in spectacular manicured French gardens, while the marvellous impression continues on the inside throughout its luxurious halls, dining rooms, suites and guest rooms, which exude the refined elegance befitting sophisticated clientele.

Professional and responsive service

Even the most visually resplendent venue might seem to be of limited value if it is not accompanied by the service needed to make the experience of you and your guests unforgettable for all of the right reasons.

You may not be surprised by now to learn that here at Château Bouffémont, we are great believers in the provision of a truly tailor made service – one defined by a fully dedicated and dynamic team consisting of a butler who is continually on standby to help in any way and housekeeping staff who are there to ensure your ongoing comfort.

There is also a concierge service to facilitate day-to-day living at the Château, as well as a Guardian to keep watch over your privacy and ensure the highest standard of 24/7 security.

A high level of flexibility and customisation

Any venue you approach that claims to be ‘bespoke’ in nature should fully appreciate that your needs are likely to greatly differ from the last client to have used the property, as well as those that will hire the venue after you.

A bachelor party is not the same as a baptism, which in turn is not the same as a yearly family reunion, corporate retreat or video shooting. Whatever your reasons for wishing to hire the venue, you are sure to appreciate a dedicated team of staff who are receptive to your most specialised requests.

As one of the leading bespoke venues, here at Château Bouffémont, we are confident that our splendidly sophisticated property could be the perfect choice for your upcoming event. Follow the above guidance, however, and you should be in an advantageous position to choose the venue that best suits your own particular needs.
