Getting Married in France - Why choose French & Fahey and the South West of France?
France has a certain allure when it comes to weddings and a lot to offer. Beautiful old chateaus, chalky sandstone vineyards, Paris, the city of love. But what if you want something that is a little bit different and unique?
French & Fahey offer festival style weddings in the French Pays Basque region on the South West coast of France. This region (hyperlink to first blog post) is stunning and we want you to experience its full beauty, so we carefully selected the French & Fahey wedding venue to fully capture the stunning visuals and rich culture of this region.
The French wedding venue
French & Fahey have a large reception tent that comfortably seats up to 150 wedding guests. It is nestled in a meadow near the village of Sare, with rolling green hills and the Pyrenees mountains surrounding it. Sare is a historic farming village with as many as 280 iconic Basque houses dating as far back as the 15th century. The summit of La Rhune, a mountain iconic of the Basque country is just 4km to the west of the village.
There is luxury bell tent accommodation for your guests, kitted out beautifully for a wonderful glamping festival experience. This is an experience that you and your guests will never forget, whilst catering to every wedding guest’s need.
The heart of the property is a traditional eight bedroom Basque farm house that can accommodate the bridal party if you wish. The grounds also have several reception areas and a gated swimming pool. The wedding venue has plenty of space for getting ready before the wedding, as well as enjoying the natural setting around you, before, during and after your wedding.
Biarritz and its surroundings
The French & Fahey wedding venue is the perfect mix of rustic and glamorous. It is ideal for a very special festival wedding in the countryside. But the scenery doesn’t end there! The nearby seaside town of Biarritz offers a coastal contrast. Wedding guests could start their wedding festival weekend with a glass of wine, looking over the sea at the Grand Plage beach or heading for a surf or swim at the famous Cotes des Basque.
The trendy village of Guéthary is just ten minutes from Biarritz and nearby there is also the fishing village of Saint Jean de Luz and the stone fort of Ciboure. Just over the border into Spain is foodie heaven, San Sebastian, where you can fine dine in a Michelin star restaurant or jump between the many lively tapas bars.
The Pays Basque region in Southwest France is a dream to explore and has short flights from the UK daily with several airport options - Biarritz, Bilbao and Bordeaux. If you are looking to get married in France and do things a little differently from other French destination weddings, French & Fahey can offer that for both you and your guests. We will plan every detail, from transportation, accommodation and wedding weekend activities for you and your guests to provide the ultimate destination wedding experience.
