Welcome to Orpheus & Bacchus

A unique classical house party.

Be prepared for an experience of extraordinary intimacy, chamber music as it used to be, that makes famous venues such as the small halls of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Berlin Philharmonie, and even London's Wigmore Hall, seem large and impersonal in comparison. The Orpheus & Bacchus Festival is a dream come true, a perfect venue for chamber music, according to visiting artists and guests, and a unique opportunity to meet and dine with some of the world's premiere musicians.

With exceptional musicians and a beautiful 18th century beamed salon with wonderful acoustics, deep in the vineyards of the most famous wine-growing area in the world, peace and tranquillity provide the environment for memorable performances to be born. With the excitement and spontaneity of the music we give you comfort. You will be staying in attractive en-suite accommodation around the Le Faure courtyard, and our dining salon is run by our own gourmet chef. In the concert salon you sit on our sofas, not chairs.

In the daytime you can relax as you wish, with swimming pools, tennis, croquet and boules on site and golf nearby. Or you can join our varied programme of daily visits to famous châteaux such as Haut Brion and Lafite, beautiful places such as Bordeaux or St.Emilion, water trips at Arcachon or Bergerac, and many more.
