This must be heaven for wine, spa and golf lovers. Surrounded by 135 acres of some of the world’s best vineyards, the former chateau now known as Relais De Margaux is elegance personified. Northwest of Bordeaux in the world famous Medoc region, high-quality grapes are grown here to produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.
The Relais combines a rich past with traditional French style rooms and all the modern day amenities of a world-class hotel, such as flat screen TVs, spacious bathrooms, heated towel racks, luxurious linens, a fabulous golf course, and the Spa Harmonia.
Nearby are a few wineries with global reputations for their products and their cuisine –– Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Margaux. Don’t you dare miss ordering the chocolate pizza at the Brasserie du Lac: rich melted chocolate over a thick, round crust of brioche.
