How about a gourmet retreat in a luxury château with a generous 30 per cent off to chase away those winter blues? To celebrate its 30th birthday, Château Cordeillan-Bages (a convenient 50 minutes from Bordeaux Airport) is offering guests a discount between now and November 10
This 28-bedroom château in the historic fishing village of Bages is the perfect getaway for food and wine lovers.
Its Michelin-star restaurant is overseen by executive chef Julien Lefebvre, who hails from Normandy, and prides himself on discovering and supporting local producers, such as caviar from Aquitaine, oysters from Saint-Vivien de Médoc and Faverolles poultry from the nearby Vertessec farm.
Dishes on this proudly seasonal menu when we sneaked a peek included the likes of roasted quail, served with pear and juniper berry chutney and salsify in a Sauvignon Blanc vinegar gravy jus; or roast duck breast, with butternut squash, orange marmalade and praline cream and a hop malt gravy jus.
The award-winning wine list boasts some 1,800 labels, including the Bordeaux grands crus, curated by chef sommelier Arnaud Le Saux, whose expertise and unusual stories promise a veritable voyage of discovery. The 30 per cent off deal at Château Cordeillan-Bages applies to premium room categories and above on all stays between now and November 10, 2019. Premium bedrooms start from €196 a night, including the discount. Offer applies to booking online only at www.cordeillanbages.com and is subject to availability.
