GrattequinaChateau in Bordeaux
A chic boutique hotel nestled amongst Bordeaux vineyards, with easy acces to the famous wine regions of Saint Emilion, Graves & Sauternes.
At L’Autre Vie, our philosophy is simple – relax and enjoy. In complete privacy, with vineyards all around, you’ll feel the freedom to move, breathe, taste and explore. A blend of boutique hotel and B&B charm, the rooms have been designed with style and character, & your Australian hosts will ensure you enjoy your stay. The outdoor spaces feature a large private pool area, huge sun deck with comfy lounges, space for a friendly game of petanque, or simply stroll amongst the surrounding vineyards. Nearby medieval villages and historical sites highlight the area’s rich history, plus there are plenty of options for activities and wine tasting.
Stylish ensuite rooms, with i-pod docking stations, flat screen TVs, king sized beds, and toiletries by Elemis. Relax by the pool, help yourself to wine throughout the day at our honesty bar, and indulge in cheese, charcuterie, or one of our BBQ packs.
How did two Australians end up in this part of France? After 10 years in the corporate world we decided to take the plunge in a search for something new, and enjoy more of the good things in life. Having lived in Sydney, London and New York, we couldn’t help our itchy feet from taking us to a new place with open spaces and a different way of life. L’Autre Vie, an 18th century farmhouse surrounded by the famous vineyards of Bordeaux, was the result of that search. And of course it didn’t hurt that the region is famous for its food and wine – two of our biggest weaknesses.
