If the idea of a weekend break full to the brim with food has you at bonjour then this will be the deal for you. Le St James Hotel, set 15 minutes from central Bordeaux, is offering a two-night getaway staying at their stunning hotel with food at the centre of the stay.
Guests will enjoy dinner at the hotel’s restaurant where Michelin-starred chef Nicholas Magie is cooking up incredible dishes that are considered to be some of the best in the region. The tantalising seasonal menu includes plates such as the ‘scallop in different textures’ and a ‘breast of pigeon “Mrs Leguen”’, and all the dishes are expertly matched with specially selected wines.
But the eating doesn’t stop there. Alongside oyster tasting on a pinasse boat guests can also experience a day at the stunning Bay of Arcachon where you can indulge in a delightful picnic whilst soaking up the rays and taking in the views of the sparkling blue waters.
When back at the hotel and thoroughly in the mood for food guests have the chance to get stuck in at the hotel’s world-class cookery school, oui s’il vous plait is all we can say!
The St James Hotel was designed by renowned architect Jean Nouvel, with each of the 18 rooms boasting a panoramic view of the hotel’s vineyards, the river Garonne and the beautiful romantic lights of Bordeaux.
