Wedding and private event

An idyllic setting at the heart of the Basque Country

The Au Milieu des Fougères estate is a place you won’t want to leave. The light and ambiance are truly inspiring, and will remain etched in your memory as long and deep as the cracks in the Basque mountainsides.

This magnificent renovated farmhouse is the ideal venue for a truly special wedding.

The house feels very much like a family home, with Caroline and Pauline offering their guests a warm welcome that immediately puts them at ease. They will be genuinely delighted to help you, and make the perfect guides to a house steeped in history. Franck takes great pleasure in sharing his passion for the Basque Country and his in-depth knowledge of the village of Sare and the surrounding area.

The Au Milieu des Fougères estate provides dedicated spaces for the ceremony, the reception and the disco.

The wooded park with its wealth of magnificent trees; the pelota wall making an ideal and original backdrop for secular ceremonies or photocalls; the sun loungers; the swing; and the 350m2 terrace with a dramatic view over the Basque mountains provide a bucolic and romantic setting for the sweetest of shared celebrations.

With twenty years’ experience under their belts, the Rigoux family are well acquainted with the Basque Country’s most talented craftspeople, florists, caterers and decorators. They will suggest the best, while remaining ever attentive to each customer’s wants and needs.

With us, you will be made to feel at home. You will make the place your own, share it with others, forge memories, tell a story. 

With professional catering, barbecues, and a space dedicated to Zikiro (grilled suckling lamb), you will find everything you need for the finest of receptions.
