  • About this holiday

    Les Sources de Caudalie near Martillac is an excellently situated five star hotel with three excellent restaurants, serving a wide selection of fine Bordeaux wines, and a vinotherapy spa.

    Client testimonial: "We could not have been in a better place for a weekend retreat for a group of ladies; the hotel and staff were truly exceptional. The location, rooms and food are excellent of course but in addition we were made to feel very welcome and the staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. I really can’t recommend the hotel highly enough and would happily go back."

    Our opinion

    Les Sources de Caudalie in Martillac is a very special hotel with high levels of service and comfort in an excellent location among the vineyards of the Bordeaux region. The hotel offers a perfect combination of wine-tasting, gastronomy and relaxation and comes highly recommended.

    Hotel description

    Les Sources de Caudalie in Martillac is situated at the very heart of the Smith Haut Lafitte vineyard. Owned by the same family as the vineyard, guests can enjoy a wide selection of fine wines as accompaniment to the delicious French cuisine offered by Les Sources de Caudalie`s two restaurants: two Michelin-starred `La Grand` Vigne` which offers refined, classical dishes and the more casual `Table du Lavoir` offering regional cuisine in a beautiful beamed room. The chef, Nicolas Masse, runs the hotel's three restaurants which have views over the vineyard. The open wood fire in the stylish, yet extremely cosy bar creates a very atmospheric ambience in which to relax and enjoy the region`s wines and Armagnac brandy. For a culinary treat, cooking and wine tasting classes are available at the hotel and are followed by lunch in La Grand Vigne. The 61 bedrooms at Les Sources de Caudalie, each with individual names, are decorated individually to reflect the style and colours of the region. Situated in the various wings and in little houses in the hotel grounds, the bedrooms have private bathroom, air conditioning, television, telephone, mini-bar, safe and hairdryer. One of the highlights of Les Sources de Caudalie is its wonderful vinotherapy spa, the perfect place to relax in the hot spring-fed swimming pool or treat yourself the endless list of vinotherapy, which use the Caudalie products and cosmetics based on grape and vine extracts.

    The countryside surrounding the hotel is ideal for walking. The owners of the nearby Château Smith Haut Lafitte welcome visitors for wine tasting tours. The city of Bordeaux is only 10 miles away from Les Sources de Caudalie and offers a selection of excellent museums, neoclassical architecture and well-tended parks.
