Château Marcellus

Welcome to Château Marcellus


For us, it all started in the spring of 2019… We discovered Château de Marcellus, its impressive architecture, and its history while searching for a historic property in the Bordeaux region.

We will always remember the day we saw the facade of the Château Marcellus at the end of the tree-lined driveway. We call it: love at first sight. Then, at the end of 2020, this historic residence has finally become not only our lovely home but also the center of our professional projects. In this marvelous setting, among refined and romantic 18th-century decor, we have created a venue for weddings and events, as well as amazing guest rooms.

What’s our secret? We simply love what we do. We love history and old buildings and most of all we love making people happy. We strived to be genuine hosts and make our guests feel both like royals and at home. Moreover, we hope that the experiences lived in Château Marcellus allow our guests to feel immersed in French history and culture.

We will be happy to welcome you to Château Marcellus,

Samuel and Catherine Roger

Catherine Roger


Catherine Roger was born in Rostov-sur-le-Don in Russia. She moved to France in 2017. Since then, she has lived with her husband in a city close to Paris. She was a talented photographer and a fashion designer successfully developing her career in the French capital.

In June 2019 she discovered the Château Marcellus while looking for a historic property in the Bordeaux region. She immediately fell in love with the domain, its neoclassical architecture, private parks, and gardens. This is how her desire to transform a historical castle into a luxury hotel and wedding and events venue was born. In 2021, Catherine Roger launched a dual activity focused on events organization and the opening of guest rooms.

With respect to the history of the property, she is passionately responsible for extensive renovation work, as well as for decorations in unique rooms and suites.

Enriched by her hotel management training, she now devotes herself to the guests in order to offer them a unique experience at the Château de Marcellus. Furthermore, during the last few years, she has become passionate about cooking. Catherine provides a private chef service for the guests in Chateau.
