Built in the mid-17th c. by Marquis d’Ovillers and his spouse, Lady Sorel, Sorel castle offers its drawing rooms, its grounds and orangery to hold weddings, seminars, or private and business receptions.
It is equally distant from Noyon and Compiègnes (14 miles) and easily accessible and close to two exits on motorway A1. It can accommodate up to 250 or 300 guests, but is also suited for smaller parties.
It is located in a peaceful and verdant hamlet. Its 42-acre grounds, its honorary courtyard, as well as its moats and pigeonhouses, explain why Beaumarchais’s family had spotted this agreeable place, “only 22 leagues (60 miles) from Paris.”
