Bordeaux wine is made by more than 8,500 producers, with an average production of over 700 million bottles per year ranging from everyday table wine, to some of the most expensive and prestigious wines in the world. Besides wine, Bordeaux is also intoxicating for its culture, leisure facilities and gastronomy.
Les Sources de Caudalie
Set amongst the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, 15 minutes from the centre of Bordeaux, Les Sources de Caudalie offers luxury accommodation and the perfect combination of gastronomy, spa treatments and relaxation.
There is a phenomenal feeling of peace and tranquillity the minute you arrive.
