Created by legendary chef Michel Guérard, this renowned and exquisitely appointed 45-room hotel is located two hours south of Bordeaux. The sizable enclave comprises the main building, three other self-contained smaller “hotels,” a three-star restaurant, a rustic bistro and the charming Mère Poule & Cie café. Le Logis des Grives house, La Maison Rose and Le Couvent des Herbes, a former convent dating to the 18th century, are set amid the estate’s tranquil gardens. Accommodations housed within these structures typically feature terra-cotta floors, Oriental carpets, high ceilings, painted wardrobes, luxurious marble baths and beds with colorful chintz baldachins. Diversions include a comprehensive Sisley spa specializing in thermal water treatments, an outdoor swimming pool, a gym and yoga studio, two tennis courts and a cooking school offering half-day classes. Complimentary bikes are also available for use, and a nine-hole golf course is nearby.
