Seeking a relaxed and romantic wedding venue by a fresh water lake near Bordeaux? Then discover Chateau Fengari, a breathtaking 19th-century estate tucked away in a secret corner of South West France, just a skip away from the iconic city of Bordeaux. 

We discovered the hidden sanctuary of Chateau Fengari on a sunny afternoon in Spring and were immediately captivated by the tranquil surroundings, where privacy reigns supreme across the expansive twenty-acre estate. 

Picture your ceremony amidst the charming gardens or consider the nearby church for a touch of tradition. Then gather your guests for the wedding dinner, either in the elegant dining room or on the terrace, as you soak in the panoramic views of the magnificent grounds.

Extend the festivities beyond the big day and relish a leisurely post-wedding gathering with a delightful BBQ by the pool. You’ll also be able to enjoy a refreshing dip in the swimming lake or engage in friendly tennis matches on the brand-new court. 

When it’s time to rest, the chateau accommodation awaits with ten rooms that can accommodate up to 30 guests. Experience the cool and inviting ambiance of the crisp white bedrooms, providing a welcome retreat from the sun-kissed South West France. 

The in-house staff includes a bilingual wedding planner and a talented chef who will go the extra mile to ensure your special day is nothing short of perfection.

Things to do nearby: the little bakery in the village is a few minutes’ walk from the chateau, where they make proper French bread and croissants every day. The chateau is also conveniently located for those who want to experience the rich culinary heritage of the Bordeaux and Charente regions – from the distilleries of Cognac in the North, to the Bordeaux & St. Emilion’s wines in the South; the foie gras in the East and the sumptuous seafood in the West of Charente.
