Hauterive Saint-James

3 Place Camille Hostein
Bouliac , Bordeaux Region , France

Like a beacon on a hill, this boutique hotel sits atop a scenic cliff overlooking valley vineyards and the lights of Bordeaux. The exterior is a bit deceiving, as this Relais & Chateaux property is set inside three tobacco barn-inspired wood buildings with huge picture windows. Most rooms have breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and are made sunny with minimalist furniture, high ceilings, and white tones. The pool also boasts great views, as well as a wide-plank wooden deck for lounging in the sun. Three restaurants serve up everything from innovative cuisine to bistro fare to European breakfasts.
