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.

Historic City of Trogir

The historic city of Trogir is situated on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Čiovo. Since 1997, it has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture.

Trogir has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.

Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan, and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia.
