Hotel le Saint James, Bordeaux

from the dining room

Formerly a restaurant, the 18th-century farmhouse now housing Le Saint-James was transformed and enlarged in 1989 by Jean Nouvel. The architect designed four pavilions, each connected to the original building, to create the hotel’s guest rooms. The pavilions open out onto the natural surroundings, generating the sensation of lunching, dining, sleeping, reposing and relaxing in the very heart of the vineyards. An architectural feat as atypical as it is eye-catching, now listed as part of France’s 20th-century architectural heritage by the Ministry of Culture.
