Type of rooms: Les sources de CaudalieThe Rooms:
Each of the 40 rooms, named after aspects of our regional heritage, boasts a unique décor, featuring antiques, collectible furniture, and fine draperies. Most of them have a terrace or a balcony with a beautiful view onto the Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte's vineyards or onto the lake. Guests will be able to enjoy a surprising voyage of discovery through the heart of Aquitaine (from La Part des Anges to Lac des Cygnes).
The Comfort rooms are 25 sq m each and the Prestige rooms 30 sq m. The Junior Suites:
The Junior Suites offer space, elegance and comfort. All different, each is an invitation into the history of the Aquitaine Region: back to the colonial past with Thomas Jefferson, discovering the Pays Basque in Espelette.
Each has a cosy, warm living room.
The Junior Suites are 35 sq m each.
The 40 sq m Suites offer pure delight. They all have their own private terrace looking over the vineyards of the Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte or the hotel lake. The living room is a great place to relax while the bedroom offers the utmost cocoon to rest. Each has a specific and unique ambiance filled with treasures and details to uncover.
The "Vent du Large" ("Sea Breeze") Suite is the most enchanting of them all. The colours of the room, purple and parma, and its chimney, more than welcome during the cold winter nights, make guests enter a world of charm and refinement.
If travelling with family, the "Coeur des Sources" ("The Heart of the Sources") is an ideal place to recreate the intimacy of the home. Guests will find a master bedroom and a guest room overlooking the gardens and the vineyard, a living room, a dining room, two bathrooms and even a small kitchen.
L'île aux Oiseaux suite:
This suite is reminiscent of the cabanes tchanquées (cabins on stilts) in the Arcachon Bay. Entirely redecorated by the young French fashion designer Maxime Simoëns, the suite has an unexpectedly avant-garde atmosphere combining graphics and architecture. The new décor is characterised by contrast - white against black, matte against gloss, plain against print. There is also a strong references to his trademark symbol, the bar-code - at once a clever design tool, and a reminder of our consumer era. The île aux Oiseaux suite proposes a refuge of 50 sq m for lovers of nature and uncluttered design. The vast terrace overlooking the lake offers a haven of peace.
All rooms and suites are equipped with a bathroom with tub and shower, individual climate control, cable TV, wireless internet access, mini-bar, safe and hair dryer.
