Perfect forLovers of wine, food and relaxation.
In the knowIt’s this very hotel that dreamt up the genius notion of vinotherapy, twinning the anti-ageing properties of grapeseeds with natural hot spring water. The result is an inviting spa complete with steamy wine baths, crushed cabernet scrubs and merlot and vine flower wraps, among other tempting treatments.

Hotel Overview


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.

Food and facilities

La Grande Vigne restaurant is overseen by two Michelin-starred chef Nicolas Masse, tipped as a rising star in France’s gourmet circles. Using seasonal ingredients plucked straight from the hotel’s vegetable garden, Masse crafts exquisite dishes which are suitably complemented by the extensive wine list. For more casual dinners, Table de Lavoir offers bistro-style cuisine while the Rouge bar serves tapas alongside its wines. There’s also two swimming pools: one indoor with vaulted ceilings, and another outdoor pool which is perfectly placed for luxuriating in the sunshine.
