3 good reasons to pack your bags for Sources de Caudalie
For a trip just 20 minutes from Bordeaux: less than half an hour by car from the train station in Bordeaux, vineyards as far as the eye can see and the forest mark the beginning of the change of scenery. In addition to its traditional bedrooms, the hotel offers large family suites, designed like small houses on stilts, in the heart of nature. You’ll have no choice but to fall in love with “l’île aux oiseaux” (“the island of the bird”), a large suite inspired by the Arcachon Bay tents overlooking the pond of the Sources de Caudalie, decorated entirely by wedding dress designer Delphine Collin. Wake up in the morning to the sounds of the birds singing and see the mist floating on the water by opening your shutters: the ideal recipe to forget your daily life.
For the spa: located in the middle of vineyards, the building, which combines wood and stone and whose architecture is inspired by old tobacco kilns, offers spectacular majesty at the spa Caudalie. The large windows offer a view of the vineyards and the surrounding nature which complements the large pool of natural hot water and jacuzzi. In winter, the feeling of being outdoors is striking and the contrast of the cold-weathered countryside makes the spaces for relaxation even warmer…
