Spa Caudalie

You’re encouraged to drink the merlot responsibly, but there’s no such limit to how much vinotherapy you can enjoy. We would never have believed that grape seeds could be so good for you... until we had a revelation at Sources de Caudalie. Set in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, you can unpack your luggage at Smith Haut Lafitte Chateau in Martillac and then savour exquisite treatments in the spa, delicious meals in Nicolas Masse’s two Michelin-starred restaurant, and tonic laps of the indoor pool.

Vineyard views

Piscine du Grand Barrail

Saint-Émilion is about more than just the nectar of the gods. It’s also a spa, comfortably at home in the Grand Barrail hotel. The jacuzzi looks out onto the vineyards, making it the perfect spot to switch off and relax. If you can tear yourself away, you can visit the owners of the surrounding winemaking chateaus. They will be more than happy to let you taste a few of their vintages.
