French fancy: Kim Kardashian considers faux chateau near Paris as potential wedding venue for her and Kanye West

Oh la la! Rumours are rife that sex video vixen Kim Kardashian is considering wedding her fiance Kanye West in a lavish ceremony near Paris

Kim Kardashian is considering wedding her fiance Kanye West in an opulent faux chateau outside Paris.

The reality show princess visited the venue while she was staying in the city earlier this week.

Located in Louveciennes, Chateau Louis XIV is meant to resemble a 17th-century castle and is just 14 miles from the heart of Paris.

The stunning 57-acre property was built in 2008 by development company Cogemad.

Emad Khashoggi, the head of the development company, visited the site and found it was the former home of King Louis XIV’s staff when they built the royal residence at nearby Chateau de Marly.

He decided that due to its fascinating history and unique location he would try and rebuild the property – but in order to do that he had to demolish the crumbling wreck that stood on the site.

Although it is newly built, the Chateau Louis XIV meets the exact standards and proportions of buildings constructed in the 17th century.

The house features two huge master bedrooms, several guest suites, numerous reception halls, two custom-made artisanal kitchens, a floor designed for recreational activities, an underwater room built in the heart of the moats – the only one of its kind in Europe – and a home cinema and wine cellar.

The centrepiece of the house is the rotunda drawing room, where several master painters created a trompe-l’œil ceiling that resembles the famous Sistine Chapel in Rome.

Rumours have been rife about where Kim and Kanye are set to tie the knot, though the celeb couple have remained unusually tight-lipped about the venue.

Recent reports suggest the wedding day is planned for 24 May.

However, if the rapper and his famous fiance do want to get hitched in the European city of love, they might have to delay their wedding due to French law.


According to The Sun, foreign citizens must live in the country for 40 days before they tie the knot.

Kanye has reportedly owned an apartment in the city for three years, but since it’s not his main residence the local mayor can make the final decision.
