1. LES SOURCES DE CAUDALIE - smith haut lafitte

We start with the most famous spa of the region. Located in the estate of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, Grand Cru Classé, a unique place where vinotherapy was created. Les Sources de Caudalie has everything you need for an ideal stay: a magnificent location in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, a wine château to visit, exceptional wines, a spa that is unique in the world, and a starred restaurant...It is the only palace level region and a Relais & Châteaux. 

Our recommandation : This hotel is located 20 minutes from the center of Bordeaux, but also less than an hour from the Bay of Arcachon! Add to the vinotherapy a breath of iodized ocean air with a short day of cruising and tasting fresh oysters and you have the perfect mix for complete disconnection! Ideal for an off-season stay, out of time!

2. SPA GUERLAIN of the GRAND HÔTEL  intercontinental of BORDEAUX

If you prefer the dynamism of the city to the calm of the vineyard, this is the place to be. In the heart of Bordeaux, with a breathtaking view of the city from its famous rooftop, the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux can satisfy even the most demanding guests.

Enjoy a hammam, a sauna and an indoor pool lined with colonnades and an aquatic course with massage jets and counter-current swimming... then enjoy the jacuzzi on the panoramic terrace.

Our recommandation : If you don't have time for a trip to the vineyard, let the vineyard come to you! Add to your stay a tasting of the Grands Crus de Prestige in the heart of the city inside the Cité du Vin.


Another exceptional address in the Médoc vineyards, in the heart of Margaux, near the Garonne River. Located in the heart of the emblematic Bordeaux appellation, this hotel offers a restaurant, a brasserie, a balneotherapy center with heated pool, sauna, hammam and rest room and of course... a golf course!

By the way, all golf lovers are very welcome in Bordeaux with several golf courses around the city, to be found in all the emblematic appellations of Bordeaux - it's up to you to make the tour, compare the courses and the wines!



After a small tour of the exceptional places of the Left Bank, we now find ourselves on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region, in the heart of another renowned appellation, in Saint-Emillion. The castle welcomes you here for an extraordinary stay. Its gastronomic restaurant offers you the local menu which you can enjoy on the terrace with a view on the vineyard. A good glass of wine after the treatments will please you?

Our suggestion: To make your relaxation day even more special, why not continue with a unique experience like participating in a blending workshop at one of the Grand Crus in Saint-Emilion to create your own wine, or spending a day harvesting grapes or having lunch with a winemaker? In the heart of the vineyards, everything is possible!
