Situated in the heart of Bordeaux, La Course offers a considered insight into the area’s wine-growing history through its fabulous interior decor. A sense of journey lies at the heart of this historic building; from the past to the future, and from the vineyards to the palate – it’s all wrapped up within these exotic and elegant walls. Whilst you’re immersed in the city enough within La Course’s captivating concept, head out to find yourself just a short walk from many of the city’s best sights, including the City of Wine museum and the CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain.
It would be utterly remiss not to sample the region’s produce, and La Course’s wine cellar affords you every opportunity to do so. Situated in an atmospheric subterranean space, you can enjoy a relaxing tipple in the hanging rattan egg chair, or take it to the terrace, which is charmingly lit by a fairy-light-strewn tree. Unwind with a workout in the fitness room (it might be dinky, but it does manage to squeeze in a hammam) before retiring to your gorgeous guest room; those who opt for the rooftop suite can enjoy a private pool and stunning city views.
How to Get There
World travelers for 25 years, this was the best ever. Amazing house, amazing staff. Literally could not have been better. Far exceeded our expectations. We stay in lovebirds. Amazing.
We will return!!!!!!!
We so loved this boutique hotel, it’s Christmas decorations, open style living, roaring log fire, warm hospitality and excellent location. Loved the fact we could arrive back make our own tea in the kitchen or have a glass of wine. Strongly recommend.
I absolutely loved my recent stay at La Course. The guest house was very welcoming but equally luxurious. Our room (which had a spice island theme) was extremely comfortable with a large double shower en suite. The staff did everything they could to make us feel right at home. The town centre is a very short journey on the tram or can be reached via pleasant walk along the river - there are even bikes you can borrow. Would love to return!
Stayed here for two nights. Room was lovely and clean with bath, robes & nice toiletries. Lovely walled courtyard to sit in and have breakfast. Self-service wine by the glass did not really work, better to buy a bottle as the dispenser for glasses was not functional. Very homely ambience and great location facing 'jardin public' but within walking distance to centre through the nice garden during the day. Bordeaux is beautiful. Hotel could do with more hands-on service (only one girl who seemed to be doing everything) considering the room rate but very relaxing.
We were lucky enough to stay in the rooftop suite. It has a private pool and patio, and the entire roof is glass so you can look at the sky while lying in bed. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast of croissants, eggs, and breads were delicious. Beautiful hotel and maybe a half mile walk to the town center. There are a lot of stairs to get to the room though. Overall wonderful and relaxing place to stay.
