You’ll get only the finest when you book into Villas Foch, a refined, luxurious hotel a short walk from the banks of the Garonne. It pulls out all the stops with immaculate bedrooms – panelled and parqueted, with accents of crisp white and gold – as well as its photogenic spiral staircases and an atmospheric bar, serving up (as you might expect) some of the region’s fine wines. A cave-like indoor pool space feels tranquil and secret, while the aromatic vapours of the sauna revive you after a day of exploring.

It doesn’t get more Bordeaux than this: a spa that invites you to bathe in wine. Just south of Bordeaux’s pretty centre, it’s a luxurious resort specialising in “vinotherapy”, a treatment programme that combines the benefits of hot spring water with the antioxidant advantages of grapes and vines. Follow up a red-wine bath (that’s right) with a Merlot wrap or a vine facial treatment – then, come evening, order a large glass of local red in the celebrated restaurant.

    Bordeaux isn’t only about wine – and this resort, to the north of the city centre, really proves it, with its focus on all things golf. After you’ve swung those clubs around the two rolling courses that circle the hotel, sporting muscles will be ready for a soothing spell at the spa. Take a dip in the pool, lined in windows that let daylight spill in, then settle in for a bioenergetic detox massage, which oxygenates your body and makes you feel on top of the world.

    What’s better than a pampering session in an elaborate spa? One that fully immerses you in nature. At Domaine de Raba, in the south of Bordeaux, treatments take place in a cosy wood cabin or open-air waterside pavilion positioned amid rolling parkland, so you can enjoy a body scrub to the sound of wild ducks splashing in a lake. There’s an indoor pool available for dips, whatever the weather, and a fabulous hotel restaurant in which to feast on salads or ceviche after your treatment.

    Close to Bordeaux, but actually in Saint-Émilion, Grand Barrail will be worth the journey when you arrive to find this opulent château, immersed in manicured lawns and rows of vines. The spa is just as special, with multiple steam rooms, relaxation zones and treatments ranging from hot-stone massages to skin-softening scrubs. Treatment rooms come with big windows overlooking the vines, and there’s a sunny terrace where you can further unwind afterwards.
