l’Hôtel Le Relais de Margaux

Where to spend New Year in Nouvelle-Aquitaine ?

Nouvelle-Aquitaine is such a vast and varied region that it's difficult to choose where to go. So here are my current favourites if you're looking to spend New Year in typical Great South West settings. Happy festive season to all!

For a jazzy New Year in the vineyards

Food and wine lovers, this end of year break is for you. What could be more exhilarating than to wind through the vineyards in the heart of the prestigious Médoc, a must-see destination, and to spend a night in a dream location at Le Relais de Margaux Hotel, a former 19th century wine chateau.
From €219/person – 2 days/1 night –

I recommend you take a boat trip down the Garonne, aboard the Burdigala, to admire Bordeaux and its stately 18th century facades.

L’Atalante, hôtel thalasso & Spa

End the year with a "Do, Re..Mi" on the Ile de Ré!

Land, sea and sky come together for the perfect great get away on this charming little island in Charentes, with its white-washed houses and their brightly-coloured shutters. To pamper all your needs and carry you into the New Year, the L'Atalante wellness-spa hotel is the place to go.

From €899 for 2

On your bike! Even if you're not the sporty type it's the best way to visit the island and discover the exceptional and unique landscapes of the “Chemin des Marais”.

Hôtel Stelsia

Dream in colour at New Year-on-Lot

Be warned! If you stay at the Stelsia, near Villeneuve-sur-Lot, you might just be carried away to a fairy tale this New Year. The wonder and charm of the location combined with the party magic are sure to create an enchanting start to 2019.

On the programme: plenty of joie de vivre, and a longing to share precious moments thanks to chef Xavier Lesueur and all the entertainment planned (welcome aperitif, show, dance floor with DJ)

“Luxury New Year Cabaret”

From €169 per person

This formula is also available with one night at the château at the rate of €618 for two.

Just 10 kilometres from Stelsia, don't miss a trip to Villeneuve-sur-Lot, an ancient 'bastide' town founded in 1253. With the Lot running through its centre, the town continues to hold on to its timeless charm. The beauty of the medieval bastide, the 13th century Old Bridge and the Place Lafayette surrounded by arches... and nearby villages is sure to appeal to all.

220 000 ha
Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the largest vineyard of fine wines in the world.
