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
The fantastic reviews of this place are all correct. It was a wonderful place to stay for our honeymoon.
The location is fantastic as it is close to a number of fabulous places to eat and drink. The rooms are lovely. The wine is literally on tap.
One bit of advice if you stay here. Ask the staff questions! We needed a restaurant (I forgot to book one in advance) they helped us and we had maybe the best seafood of the trip.
A gem. We would defo book here again
A truly beautiful city townhouse residence offering a fantastic base for exploring the city of Bordeaux for a city break.
Situated discreetly on a quiet street, you step inside a stunning property (see photos) with excellent communal lounge, dining room and kitchen downstairs.
We had only booked here for one night on our way passing through the city in the summer, which was really not enough to get the most out of this place - I think it would be a great base for a short city break.
Couple of slight drawbacks - the room was a little disappointing compared to the rest of the property. Bit small, dark, and not well ventilated. lacking in natural window light due to the nature/aspect of the property.
Pressure of hot water was not working at all - we were barely able to have a shower , just a small dribble of warm water (management need to look into this).
Not sure summer is the best time to stay here as there isn’t any areas to lie and enjoy the sun.
The breakfast buffet was excellent, and the machine offering quality wines by the glass was a great touch. Staff were excellent and really helpful.
A really great experience - friendly and knowledgable staff, fantastic communal space, wine on tap and free cake. There is also a tiny gym and steam room to work off the wine and cake so pretty perfect for a weekend in Bordeaux.
