Les Source de Caudalie in Bordeaux France

Enjoy Food, Wine and Luxury at Bordeaux Family Run Hotel

If you’re a wine connoisseur, the wineries of Napa Valley are a popular destination for a weekend getaway, since it’s only few hours’ drive north from Fresno. You’ll have to travel farther to visit the most famed wine region in the world: Bordeaux, France.

Elite Global Journeys can help you book a luxury vacation to one of Europe’s most exciting cities. One of the best ways to experience a trip to Bordeaux is to stay at one of the city’s family-run hotels, Les Sources de Caudalie.

Les Sources de Caudalie restaurantAlice Tourbier and her husband, Jérôme, opened this 61-room spa- and wine-centric hotel in 1999. Using reclaimed local materials, they created an intimate, village-like complex of contemporary buildings that blend seamlessly with the surrounding lush vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte.

Family Tree

Tourbier’s parents have operated the Château Smith Haut Lafitte winery and estate for almost a quarter century, and her sister Mathilde founded global natural beauty line Caudalie Paris using grapes, seeds, and vines from the family vineyards. The family’s passions intersect on this acclaimed grand cru estate, where hotel guests can explore the winery and the spa features Caudalie Paris products, also offered as guestroom amenities. (Tourbier personally chose all the furnishings and antiques and decorated each room.) Guests are greeted with a glass of Haut Lafitte or a cup of herbal tea from the Caudalie collection.

Don’t Miss

It’s all about food and wine, from a merlot wrap at the spa to cooking classes at the hotel’s Michelin-starred La Grand’Vigne to sommelier-led wine tastings and private vineyard tours. “My parents are happy to meet our guests,” declares Tourbier. “They open the door to their home, share a glass of wine, and do a personal tour.”
