Over time, some places tend to return their primary vocation, unable to resist their destiny. This property seems fated to welcoming and hosting. In the sedimentary lands of Brie, the Priory of Saint-Cyr and its medieval buildings form an enclosure with cereal plains on one side and a wooded park protecting it on the other. Less than an hour from the capital, it offers an intimate setting for those looking to celebrate "the most beautiful day of their lives", guided to the last detail by the expert advice of the owners.
For almost thirty years, we have been active in the world of Parisian events: management seminars in major hotels (Hilton, Meurice, Royal Monceau), cultural events in the capital's major historic centres (the Louvre Museum, Musée d'Orsay, Opera Garnier). We wanted to adapt our expertise to individuals, more specifically to wedding receptions. We were therefore looking for a chic and rural place that would match the quality of the events we wanted to offer. We found the place that met our expectations in Seine-et-Marne.
Due to its religious and medieval character, our property is made up of four millstone buildings which are emblematic of the region. Ogival windows, a monumental Gothic staircase and gargoyles decorate the ensemble. The Priory is surrounded by a three-hundred-hectare landscaped park enriched with ponds and crossed by a stream.
The medieval ensemble of Rû de Vrou and its leprosarium were founded in the 12th century by the abbesses of the monastery of Jouarre. They were built to provide pilgrims with shelter and care along the main path of Jouarre Coulommiers. In this building, the priest appointed by the Abbess of Jouarre was responsible for organising a mass every week that was attended by the guests and all the staff of the establishment. In December 1543, Francis I promulgated an edict which deprived the clergy of the prerogatives of administration. The religious building of Rû de Vrou then became an ordinary hospital. Around 1830, it was transformed into a mill, but the new owner had to abandon his project because there was not enough water flowing in the creek. Since then it has been privately owned.
The Priory is a unique medieval site located in Seine-et-Marne, just forty-five minutes from Paris and twenty minutes from Marne-la-Vallée. We organise all inclusive weddings and big events with caterers, dj's, florists, makeup artists, hairdressers, photographers and a wedding planner.
The Fromagerie Ganot in Jouarre is the oldest cheesemonger in Brie, it was founded in 1895 and is one of the last two traditional cheesemongers using traditional ripening methods in Seine-et-Marne. A tour of the ripening cellars is a must. For food lovers, "Le Beau Rivage" restaurant in Saint-Jean-les-deux-Jumeaux is the perfect place to enjoy traditional cuisine that is both tasty and affordable on the banks of the Marne. We recommend the hiking trails in the valley of Petit Morin, fruit and vegetable picking as a family in the Nolongues fields, and the Ferme des Loges in Jouarre with fresh eggs for sale everyday (chickens, guinea fowl, capons).
The Priory's hall of the monks has a surface area of 250m2, it is decorated with a stunning medieval staircase and can accommodate up to one hundred and eighty-four guests for a seated meal. Drinks and the wine of honour can be held in the tercentenary park and its terrace. It is possible to rent the estate for the day during the week, a whole Friday, a Saturday evening or a full weekend. We also organise brunch, a barbecue or a garden party the day after the wedding.
