Les Sources de Caudalie

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

This hotel is an oenophile’s dream – the perfect place to unwind in Bordeaux’s wine country.

Just 20 minutes from the city, it consists of wooden buildings in an enchanting garden setting. Rustic French barn meets zen minimalism here.

You sleep in rustic chic rooms, suites and cottages, and laze between the hydrotherapy pools, steam room, loungers and an outdoor hot tub, created – naturally – from a giant barrel.

Two gastronomic restaurants, including the two Michelin-starred La Grand’Vigne, add yet another layer of lacquer.

The superb concierge service can arrange anything you want to do or visit around Bordeaux, though you will need a car to get around the wine region.

Don’t miss

Caudalie’s spa is world famous as the cradle of vinotherapie – treatments using the by-products of wine production – invented here in 1999.

Treatments feature homegrown grapes and natural spring water; opt for the crushed cabernet body scrub, and a bath enriched with red wine extracts to improve circulation.

While you're there

For possibly the most sophisticated and imaginative mindful walk, head through the vines to the magical Forest of the Five Senses, the estate’s open-air art gallery. Here, contemporary artists have created thought-provoking sculptures that explore sight, touch, smell, scent and taste, dotted along a winding path.
