A 5-star wine country retreat experience with world-class Caudalie spa, gastronomy and wines of the region.


n the middle of Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte vineyards near Bordeaux, sits Les Sources de Caudalie... the perfect wine-country escape.

Nestled among its own historic vineyards and lake gardens, much here is dedicated to the terroir where you will also find two restaurants, a superb spa offering grape-based therapies by Caudalie, along with a cooking school and wine-tasting courses.

This peaceful and tranquil retreat is a hamlet of five properties, housing rooms and suites based on a variety of diverse themes. The use of old wooden beams throughout blends beautifully with traditional furnishings, while the picturesque cabin, built on stilts, provides breathtaking views across the lake.

Experience a grape seed and essential oil massage in the spa. Discover the secrets of Smith Haut Lafitte on a wine-tasting evening or book a cookery course with the chef. Make sure you dine in the main restaurant for haute cuisine- either inside or on the summer terrace outside.
