We recently held our wedding in the beautiful grounds of Chateau de Bonnemare and we cannot put into words how amazing our wedding weekend was. It would not have been the same without the help and support from the amazing family who own the Chateau, Sylvie, Alain and Alois (and of course their gorgeous dogs). We had 38 of our immediate friends and family staying at the Chateau with us for bed and breakfast for 3 nights. The rooms have all been renovated with en suites and are modern and clean but maintain the chateaus character by each being decorated differently and with their own character. Depending on which part of the Chateau you stay in, breakfast is brought to you each morning. If you stay in the Chateau itself or the gatehouse you get to eat breakfast in the lovely kitchen within the Chateau. We cannot thank Sylvie, Alain and Alois enough for inviting us into their home and allowing us to use it as if it were our own for the duration of the weekend for our wedding. We will definitely be returning to this special place again one day.

Sylvie and her family made us very welcome. We had a lovely room with a comfortable, large double bed and a large bathroom with a nice walk in shower. They booked a local restaurant for us the evening we arrived and served an excellent breakfast in the morning.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
