A swanky architect-designed hotel amongst the Bordeaux vineyards, overlooking the river and city, Le Saint James promises a rare treat for wine lovers and gourmets:
Nicknamed the “balcony of Bordeaux” for its panoramic views, Bouliac (33 Gironde, Nouvelle Aquitaine) has long drawn gourmets and gourmands, those who love art and art de vivre….
A peaceful sanctuary away from the hustle-bustle of the cities. A site blessed with extraordinary surroundings, set in the midst of vineyards and graced with a Romanesque church.
In the village of Bouliac Le Saint-James, a Relais & Châteaux property, beckons you to savour an experience well off the beaten path.
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.
