FRANCE – BORDEAUX-Les Sources de Caudalie

Les Sources de Caudalie, a Small Luxury Hotel, located among the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, a Graves great growth, was established in 1999. The concept behind Les Sources de Caudalie is inspired by the “French Paradox”, discovered over 20 years ago. It refers to a study proving that the French diet and lifestyle, particularly in Southwest France, is conducive to good health.

Between vineyards and forests, at only 20 minutes from Bordeaux center, the architect Yves Collet created from scratch contemporary buildings from recycled local materials in tune with the surroundings.

Located in Les Sources de Caudalie, Caudalie’s Vinotherapie Spa offers a Spa program of exclusive treatments in an environment of rare beauty.

The refined atmosphere of the treatment rooms, the blend of noble materials uniting wood and stone, and the size of the building, reminiscent of an old tobacco kiln; all were designed to harmonize perfectly with the great landscape of the vineyards and give the relaxation lounges a distinctive style.

La Table du Lavoir serves delicious, unusual, bistro-style food with the finest seasonal products.

AIn the 19th century, winegrower’s wives would come here to use a wash house that has since been rebuilt stone by stone.

The roof structure was built with 18th century beams recovered from cellars at Château Lafite-Rothschild, and the glass door can be opened, weather permitting to enjoy meals on the covered terrace. Meat roasting in the huge period fireplace releases delicious smells while clients read menus written on antique laundry beaters.
