Concierge.com's insider take:
Set among vineyards a 20-minute drive from Bordeaux, this luxurious spa specializes in wine-flavored treatments it calls Vinothérapie. You don't just drink the wine; you can bathe in it: merlot wraps, sauvignon massages, and cabernet body scrubs are among the treatments offered. The hotel itself has two restaurants and 49 rooms and suites installed in five buildings scattered around the grounds, including a few in the former boathouse, and a suite called L'île aux Oiseaux perched on stilts over a pond. The decor of each guest room is unique, although—no surprise—one of the buildings has a wine theme running throughout.
Closed the first two weeks of January.
