The day I first glimpsed the Château Marcellus facade at the end of the tree-lined driveway remains an indelible memory—a moment of love at first sight. As 2020 drew to a close, this historic residence not only transformed into my beloved home but also emerged as the focal point of my professional journey.

It’s been 3 years now since I’ve been hosting people from all over the world, organizing special events and gastronomic dinners in this marvelous setting, among refined and romantic 18th-century decor.

Authentic Chateau Cuisine

For the past seven years, I have cultivated a wealth of knowledge on guest etiquette, drawn from firsthand experiences in some of the most esteemed residences in France. I have attended receptions and dinner parties hosted by diplomats, renowned personalities, and authentic aristocratic families. Now, I am eager to share this wealth of knowledge with you.
