Château Fengari is a place to renew yourself: a sanctuary for body, mind and soul in a nineteenth century French château deep in flurry-forgotten south-west France.
Join an exclusive, inspiring retreat led by internationally-renowned tutors in yoga, Qoya, photography, creative writing, watercolour painting, personal development, mindfulness and more. Château Fengari breathes new life; you will leave energised and invigorated, gain fresh perspectives and make lifelong friends.
You can unwind in understated, elegant bedrooms; savour bespoke dining on the terrace, complete with home-grown ingredients and local Bordeaux wines; enjoy your own private yoga studio, tennis courts, swimming pool and lake; lose yourself in the twenty-two acres of gardens and woods, with miles of walks into the countryside beyond.
Magical, hidden-away Château Fengari was described by a guest as “a slice of heaven”.
The atmosphere at Château Fengari is an extension of the values of its owners, the Houstoun- Boswall family, who invite you to make château your personal sanctuary.
Each of the beautifully restored en-suite bedrooms represents understated French elegance. Simple, crisp white bed- linen provides a cool embrace from the heat of south-west France. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the swimming pool, a reinvigorating game of tennis or ground yourself with yoga in the studio.
There are snacks and drinks available whenever you want; enjoy a morning coffee pondering life’s mysteries watching the mist clear from the fields grazed by the horses behind the château.
Discover renowned Bordeaux wines at dinner, which you can enjoy on the terrace or in the belle époque dining room. Food at Château Fengari usually features home-grown, organic ingredients from the kitchen garden.
Forgotten from the flurry of everyday life – deep in the countryside in a secret corner of south-west France. Time moves more slowly here. Grapes spend a season ripening on the vines, while the world-famous claret wines (St Emilion, Pomerol and Lussac are half an hour away) mature over years or even decades. This is the old France, untouched by mass tourism.
Yet Château Fengari is less than an hour from the culture and innovation of Bordeaux, in the village of Clérac. Bordeaux Airport has European air connections, including daily flights from London.
You can also opt for air-free travel on the new high-speed TGV trains to Paris – the journey is only two hours.
