“This is a beautiful hotel set in the vineyards of the Bordeaux region. From the moment you enter you’re greeted by a feeling of peace and tranquillity. Try the signature spa treatment in the Sources de Caudalie Vinothérapie spa, savour haute cuisine in the two Michelin-starred La Grand Vigne restaurant and sit out on the summer terrace. Wine tours, cooking classes and tasting lessons are also available.”
This luxury boutique hotel is set among the vineyards of the 600-year old Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte in southwest France. Despite the oak beams, chalky stone and rustic exterior, Les Sources de Caudalie is a contemporary hotel built from recycled materials.
The hotel’s 49 rooms and suites are filled with art and antiques. Some feature all solid vintage furniture and claw-foot bathtubs, others are minimalist whitewashed fishermen’s cottages. The hotel’s nine-bedroom historic mansion, La Chartreuse du Thil, is perfect for special occasions.
Les Sources de Caudalie offers unique gastronomic experiences at its two restaurants, La Grande’Vigne and La Table du Lavoir. As many ingredients as possible are home-grown on the small farm.
Additional facilities include bars, an indoor pool, an outdoor jacuzzi and a tennis court. The spa has 20 treatment rooms, an indoor pool and a steam room. Outside there’s a heated pool and a barrel-shaped hot tub.
