CONFERENCING VENUES

Ayala (Boma)

Edmond de Ayala, founder of the house in 1860, came from a family that had always aspired to go one step further. His ancestors bequeathed him with a sense of excellence and a taste for adventure that drove him to settle in Aÿ in order to learn about wine making. From the very beginning, the house quickly became a reference both in France and overseas.

Situated under shady trees forming part of the meadow, Ayala offers an African setting with state-of-the-art equipment. Fully air-conditioned, our highly skilled team are at your service to make any event run smoothly. 

Pommery

In 1858, the determined young widow, Madame Pommery set out to conquer the national and international markets. She had no qualms about shaking up the rules of corporate management. She was one of the first woman in business to lay out a system for promoting luxury products, including style, branding, communication, and public relations. She invented Pommery’s brand image.

 

With a beautiful boardroom table, Pommery can accommodate up to 30 delegates, fully equipped with doors that open up to a patio overlooking our gardens. Pommery is ideal for all types of formal sessions

Taittinger (Poolroom)

The Taittinger's are a family of wine merchants who relocated to Paris in 1870, after the Franco-Prussian war and the resulting treaty of Frankfurt 1871, in order to retain their French citizenship. Pierre Taittinger purchased the Château de la Marquetterie in 1932 from the wine house Forest-Fourneaux.

 

Light and airy, Taittinger, derived from the French champagne, opens up to an inviting swimming pool, perfectly set for any formal session. With a large patio over looking our gardens, the delegates can enjoy a break with fresh country air. Air conditioned for summer and central heated for winter.

Pole Evans

Situated within the historic manor house and named after the late mycologist and plant pathologist, Pole Evans, the room boasts a professional setting for intimate or formal meetings and private dinners.

Salon

Tucked away in our courtyard and a new addition to the RMM family is our beautiful and quaint greenhouse, Salon.

 

This gorgeous little greenhouse venue is named after the unique Champagne Salon which was originally the product of one single man, Aimé Salon; from one single region, the Côte de Blancs; from one single cru, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; from one single grape variety, Chardonnay; and from one single vintage, with no blending whatsoever. Much like it’s namesake, Salon is a bespoke & unique venue with lots of charm, ideal for intimate functions.
