Château Bonheur-Médoc


Nestled amid prestigious Medoc vineyards and a stone’s throw from the ocean, Chateau Bonheur-Médoc is a remarkable wedding venue near Bordeaux. It effortlessly merges the timeless allure of a 19th-century chateau with a visionary design, creating a harmonious blend of past and present.

Prepare to be enchanted by Chateau Bonheur-Médoc as you catch sight of it; just like us at Chateau Bee, you’ll be enamoured by the contemporary floating deck that overlooks the 15-meter infinity pool. Surrounding the property, you’ll find sprawling vineyards and breathtaking vistas of the Gironde estuary.

Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by superb interiors that are both stylish and welcoming. The owners have poured their hearts into the meticulous renovation over the past three years, transforming the chateau into a true work of art that doubles as a welcoming family-friendly home.

The chateau will be a perfect setting to an intimate and luxurious wedding. Imagine exchanging vows in the park and savouring your wedding dinner amidst the romantic vineyards, illuminated by twinkling fairy lights.

The following day, gather your loved ones once more for a refreshing dip in the pool, followed by a brunch and a siesta in an Unopiu hammock.

With three spacious bedrooms, the property accommodates up to six people. Each suite is thoughtfully designed with its own unique sound system, colour scheme, and even personalised fragrances created by the owners’ favourite perfume maker based in London. There is plenty of extra accommodation near the property for your extra guests.

Lastly, the young and enthusiastic owner, Lorene, will be delighted to share her secret book of the finest suppliers and local activities, ensuring that your stay at Chateau Bonheur-Médoc is truly exceptional from beginning to end.

The sustainability factor: this domaine has at heart to provide a sustainable experience. For instance you will find there a treatment free pool, eco-responsible materials and cleaning products, organic beauty products and much more.

Things to do in the area: a wine tour of course! Near the chateau are some of the most renown vineyards such as Château Mouton Rotschild and Château Beychevelle to name a few. The property is part of a lovely village, just a 5 min. walk away, which has a small port and restaurant. Bordeaux is 1h10 away whilst the vast beaches and surf spots of the Atlantic coast are a mere 30 min drive.
