Les Sources de Caudalie

Discover one of the most prestigious French vineyards with a stay at Les Sources de Caudalie, just outside Bordeaux. It is an extraordinary collection of contemporary buildings, created from recycled local materials  surrounded by its own vineyards and lake-filled gardens. This is one of the best luxury hotels (five star) in the region with thermal springs, excellent cuisine and its own on-site winery where wine-tasting courses can be enjoyed. Les Sources de Caudalie is set on the estate of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, 10 miles from the airport in the Pessac-Leognan winemaking district south of Bordeaux.

Everything started in 1990, when Florence and Daniel Cathiard fell in love with Château Smith Haut Lafitte and its charming, 18th-century house, during a flight over the Bordeaux vineyards. This is a special place because of the natural thermal spring that runs underneath the estate’s Smith Haut Lafitte vineyard. Treatment ingredients are sourced from the grapes, which contain amazing anti-aging antioxidants. Wine-inspired treatments include red wine baths, grape-seed oil massages, and merlot wraps.

There is a phenomenal feeling of peace and tranquillity the minute you arrive at Les Sources de Caudalie. The rooms and suites are styled to reflect the Aquitaine region in colour, paintings and antiques.

This charming French-countryside chateau is also home to two Michelin-rated restaurants, run by chef Nicolas Masse. With only 49 rooms, the setting of Les Sources de Caudalie is simply sublime.

The complex also has a spa and hot spring, gym, bar, drawing rooms, and a three-hole golf course – as well as frogs that sing at night.
