Mister micebook wants to stock up on his favourite Christmas red
In 2017, Bordeaux topped Lonely Planet’s must-visit list with the guide writers imploring the public to discover this exciting and dynamic, yet often overlooked, French destination. Fast track a year and a newish Eurostar route, enhanced TGV offerings and more UK airline connections highlight exactly why it’s time to discover this French gem.
With a sleek and stylish Radisson Blu as one of the destination’s newcomers to check out, it’s easy to see why Bordeaux has also been name-checked by Pacific World as one of the top five emerging MICE destinations for 2019.
Now Madame micebook doesn’t mind saving her pounds on the London Southend to Bordeaux route by Easyjet, and then spending that hard scrimped cash on the accommodation of her dreams. Yes uber-luxurious ultra-relaxing Les Sources de Caudalie, she means you.
This Small Luxury Hotels of the World member is just the tonic for those looking for pre-party season pampering. Did somebody say plant-based? Those of an OTM palate can indulge in Les Sources vegetal lunch and try the nettle soup and wild daisy or strawberry gazpacho with immortelle flower ice cream.
Whilst that might be virtuous, the wine most certainly isn’t. A November trip, post wine harvest, makes for the perfect tasting tour. At the Château Smith Haut Lafitte next door, guests can explore the private cellar before wandering out and exploring 78 hectares of vineyards.
