On the fringes of Bordeaux, a laid-back Relais & Châteaux wine estate designed by a famous architect – includes breakfast, room upgrade, sauna access and more
- Star architect Jean Nouvel designed Le Saint-James’ contemporary pavilions, transforming the former restaurant and farmhouse into 18 cool, classic bedrooms. The view is front and centre: each bed has been designed at a different height, so you wake at the perfect angle to see out over the gardens.
- As you can imagine in this corner of wine country, the selection of bottles and glass is impressive and pairs beautifully with the chef Nicolas Magie’s no-nonsense cuisine. Breakfasts include the hotel’s own smoked salmon and charcutrerie, and there’s a bar that stays open ‘til late with cigars and brandy.
- As well as trips into Bordeaux city there’s much to do on site and in the close vicinity: swim in the 25-metre swimming pool, take a wine tour of the vineyards or book a class at the Côté Cours cooking school, which has a swish kitchen.
- Laundry services
- Gastronomic restaurant
- Room service
- Outdoor pool
