Les Sources de Caudalie


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 62 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 and large groups and just a five-minute drive away.

Les Sources de Caudalie offers unique gastronomic experiences at its two restaurants, La Grande’Vigne (two-Michelin star) 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 Caudalie spa has 20 treatment rooms, an indoor pool, and a steam room. Outside there’s a heated pool and a barrel-shaped hot tub.
