Jardin Gorbeau Etretat Guesthouse & Spa – Gay Wedding Venue in Etretat, France

Jardin Gorbeau Etretat Guesthouse & Spa

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

The Jardin Gorbeau Etretat Guesthouse & Spa is a magnificent and meticulously restored 1824 city mansion, just 50 meters from the beach and famous cliffs at Etretat on the Normandy Coast. We offer five luxury suites, set around a beautiful garden. There’s also a spa and sauna, cinema screening room, gastronomic dinners, massages and well-being services on site.
We’re just two hours from Paris and 2 1/2 hours from Mont St Michel and the WWII invasion beaches.

Jon & Rik, a Dutch and American/Italian gay couple, are your hosts at the Jardin Gorbeau. Our home is Etretat’s oldest mansion, built when the village was a thriving fishing town. Before the French Revolution, Etretat supplied Marie Antoinette with oysters, as her private oysters beds were here and a caravan left for Versailles every day so she would never be without them.

In the mid 19th century Etretat became famous as a town of painters, writers and musicians. Monet lived here and painted many tableaux which are famous the world over. The Impressionist art movement began here. Offenbach lived here too, and composed many operettas here during his heyday. Guy de Maupassant too, and many of his stories are based here.

Our house was in the same family for nearly 200 years and when Jon found it, it had fallen into disrepair. He spent two years renovating the house, which is composed of three buildings around a garden. He tried to save original architectural elements and filled it with paintings, photography and objects from a lifetime of collecting.

We have five guest suites, all with modern equipment, double large showers, television, and wifi access. The beds are firm, orthopedic and large.

Our garden is home to many flowers and fruit trees, including a 100 year old pear tree, and many roses. And our three cats.

We opened to the public in 2007, and have been gratified by the wonderful response of the many guests who have stayed here. People from all over France, and the world, have stayed here. Please book early, as we are often full especially in the summer season and on weekends.

Etretat is a great place from which to discover Normandy. We are near Le Havre and the Seine valley, which means you can go west and east to visit France’s largest region.

We’re also just forty minutes from Honfleur, an hour from Rouen or Caen, and another hour to Mont St Michel and to the invasion beaches.

We can organize tours, nature walks, massages and sports, horse-riding, and other activities. There are very good museums of Impressionist art nearby, in Le Havre and in Honfleur, as well as a famous museum in Rouen.

In Caen you will find a superb museum of World War II documenting the French and American experience in Normandy.

We are an international couple, and between us we speak English, Dutch, French, German and Italian and we welcome all people, gay or straight, as long as they are friendly.

France is a gay-friendly country – and the old friend of the US from revolutionary days. Vive la France!

Gay Goblets – Gay Friendly Wedding Gifts

Gay Goblets

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

The “Gay Goblets”(tm) were revised from a 1950’s product based on the Gay Nineties & Barbershop Quartet days when ‘gay’ meant festive & happy.

We decided to revise & renew the original glasses with a new design concept, but with the same meaning! The new design reflects the changes in our modern day society and celebrates the acceptance of all unions. We have sets available for male-male, female-female & male-female couples. Crystal wine glasses are hand painted & come in a custom gift box.

Presqu’Isle: Gay Wedding Venue in Remington, Virginia

Presqu'Isle

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

As a gay-owned venue, Presqu’Isle embraces traditions both old and new, and celebrates the fact that Virginia really is for ALL lovers. Situated on 130 private acres, just 60 miles from Washington D.C., Presqu’Isle is a gracious 19th-century country estate with a variety of indoor and outdoor event settings, suitable for up to 300 guests.

The Manor

True 19th-century splendor abounds in the manor house at Presqu’Isle. Thirteen foot ceilings, intricate plaster work, carved mantles and leaded-glass fan lights are just a few of the original architectural details.

In the spacious, classically appointed guest chambers – with a private marble bath invoking the understated elegance of a turn-of-the-century hotel–you can relax and prepare for your special day in peace and comfort. The suite is perfectly situated to make a grand entrance down Presqu’Isle’s graceful winding staircase.

At the end of your event, there’s no need to travel further than up the stairs to a queen-size canopy bed, outfitted in fine linens.

The Grounds

Presqu’Isle’s lawn and gardens afford sweeping views of the Piedmont countryside, while an adjacent grove of trees overlooks the pond and terrace.

Bordered by a boxwood and lavender hedge and limelight hydrangea trees, our terrace is equally suited to traditional styling or a modern twist and can accommodate a 60×40 tent.

Our Approach

With a focus on flexibility, we are committed to helping our couples plan weddings as unique as their relationships. We look forward to helping you celebrate your special day and to showing you how Presqu’Isle’s exemplary service and classic elegance will make your affair truly unforgettable.
