Spa Review and Mini Giveaway: Les Sources de Caudalie

ruth crilly beauty blog

Last month I visited the beautiful Caudalie spa in Bordeaux – Les Sources de Caudalie. It’s surrounded on all sides by gorgeous vineyards and looks for all the world like a little medieval hamlet – although it’s only just over ten years old, it has been built using reclaimed materials and it really does “blend” with the surroundings. It’s the type of idyllic place that could easily be described purely with clichés; it “nestles” in the vineyards, the views from the windows are “breathtaking”, the guest rooms are “rustic yet stylish” and have that “cosy home-from-home feel”. (I can think of many more of these clichés, let me tell you – I used to be obsessed with becoming a travel agent when I was little! As well as a doctor, a nurse, a film star and a My Little Pony.)

But I’ll stop with the empty clichés because Les Sources de Caudalie is far too brilliant for them. The designers should be applauded; they’ve managed to keep a friendly, country-house feel whilst providing the best facilities. Michelin-starred dining, an all-singing-all-dancing spa, a Chateau across the way that produces incredible wine..

I hope that I’ve captured the essence of the spa and hotel in my little video below – it was a beautiful day and I just couldn’t resist wandering into the vines for a bit of filming! I had to really resist picking some grapes and eating them – apparently they have guards in watchtowers who make sure that people keep their greedy fingers off the vines. They are authorised to shoot on sight. (Joke.)

You can find out more about the Caudalie Spa in Bordeaux on their website here.

See below the video pane for my little Caudalie giveaway!

I have five gorgeous gift boxes of Caudalie VineExpert products to giveaway – each contains samples of some of the hero products in the range.

To be in with a chance of winning, you must be signed up to the A Model Recommends: Exclusive newsletter – if you’re not, just pop your email into the box below:

Then leave me a comment on this post. It must include the word “grape”. Entries before noon on Saturday please – that’s Saturday 20th October 2012. One entry per person, and no crying if you don’t win. They be the rules!

    You make me miss home more than ever, my skin may look like is has several unholinesses beneath the surface at the best of times but I think it just needs all that I cannot afford or maybe just grape – sympathy vote?! I hope your skin is healing nicely; I wish the clean and tidy lifestyle worked so well for me. Toujours x

    Hiya Ruth – the Caudalie Spa looks absolutely stunning! I have thought about visiting there, but that’s as far as I’ve got … thinking … ha Having now watched your video footage, I will definitely add it to my list of places to visit ;) I first used the Caudalie Grape products about 10 years ago, when they had a relatively limited range, which I loved, but must admit I haven’t tried any of the new products in recent years …. something I must change.
    Amanda :D

    Here in Spain we celebrate the new year by eating twelve grapes at the rythm marked by a clock in Madrid. As I don’t like grapes I instead have Maltessers, olives, or chocolates.
    This comment hasn’t got much to do with Caudalie, but it has the word grape in it ;)

    ‘Tis the season for grapes! Lots of vineards making their wine this time of the year here in Portugal. Even though we are good wine producers, we have yet to make a beauty brand out of it. But you might be interested to know that there’s a Caudalie Spa in my town (Porto) in a gorgeous hotel. The beds are made out of giant wine barrels. It’s not as weird as it sounds, promise. You should come and visit sometime :)

    Sounds absolutely wonderful. I would love to be able to experience places like that. Unfortunately I’ve never been out of South U.S.A.! I’m only 20 I know I’ve got a lot of time to make it happen :) I have yet to try any of Caudalie’s products, and I know grape is the number one source of the powerful claims of her products. I’d love to get introduced to the brand!
    Grape out! x)

    Grapes. they are small and sweet, perfectly round. Hung on a vine waiting to be plucked. they dangle freely in the sun absorbing the light and the green around them. I wish i were a grape so i can bask in the warmth away from the stress and the noise; waiting to be chosen

    Ah, the grape.
    To eat it
    Or Not to eat it
    To swallow
    or chew
    oh I need it
    or at least a few
    To freeze
    To please
    That is the consumption
    of a grape
    (Do not linger on your decision for long, lest it dry.)

    I love caudalie products…I’m using the sos serum now, to prevent my skin from creasing in the winter time..I’d love to try the vinexpert range and maybe a grape scrub in some spa here in italy(I’ve already tried the chocolate therapy with honey and…it’s amazing), but I thing the grape fruit acid will improve more the quality of the skin ^_^

    Hi Ruth — I’ve been following your blog since your feature in the Telegraph and enjoy the reviews and tutorials. Also been curious about Caudalie grape products for a while — so needing to be in it to win it, I’ve now subscribed to your newsletter but wonder if this might be too much as AMR is already in my bookmarks.

    I am so jealous you got to go to Bordeaux! I’ve been to Sonoma several times, but the French wine country is on my bucket list. My parents grow grapes…and they are SO much better then what you can buy in the store. Thanks Ruth!

    Grapes are yummy, especially when cold and crunchy. A mushy grape is not so fine, unless of course you make some wine! ;-)
