This autumn Relais & Chateaux hotel, Le Saint-James, is inviting guests to take advantage of new seasonal opportunity to stay at the gastronomic hotel. ‘Discover Bordeaux’ is a brand-new package designed for those wishing to delve into the city of Bordeaux itself, with trips to the best that the wine region has to offer.
Le Saint James is an 18-bedroom contemporary hotel designed by famed French designer, Jean Nouvel and located in the quaint village of Bouliac, minutes from bustling Bordeaux. The hotel is home to its own vineyard, producing between 400 and 600 bottles of its signature wine every year. Guests can sample the produce both in the bar and in the Michelin-starred restaurant where head chef Nicolas Magie wields his culinary brilliance. Also located in the village of Bouliac and across the square there is the hotel’s second restaurant, Le Café de L’Espérance, with a relaxed bistro ambiance.
The ‘Discover Bordeaux’ getaway starts from €880 and includes two-nights in a Deluxe room for two people, dinner on the two evenings and breakfast for both guests, as well as a trip to Saint Emilion. During their stay guests will enjoy a gastronomic tasting dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant as well as the bistro-dining experience at Le Café de L’Espérance. Beverages are included for both evenings.
A highlight of the break is a visit to La Cité du Vin. Opened in 2016, Bordeaux’s museum of wine is regarded one of the city’s top attractions and has been called the ‘Disneyland of Wine’ and the ‘Guggenheim of Wine’. A wine tasting trip for two is also included, to Château La Dominique in Saint-Emilion.
Guests can also use their time at Le Saint James to explore Bordeaux in autumn. Such as a wander around the Grand Theatre, a walk or bike tour around the city or even a laze in Jardin Public. For those wanting a little more excitement in the evenings there are also a host of bars such as Café Ocho, the Vintage Bar and Houses of Parliament.
