Beside a lake amidst lush vineyards on the Château Smith Haut Lafitte estate, 20km south of Bordeaux.

Rooms at Les Sources de Caudalie

The rooms and suites are an attractive melange of stressed wood, antiques and warm colour palettes, decorated with old prints and photographs. Most have a terrace or balcony with views to the lake or vineyards. One of the suites, Ile aux Oiseaux, actually stands above the lake on stilts, ensuring ultra-privacy in a peaceful setting – but delightfully surprises with an eye-popping interior design.
