Some say the Les Sources de Caudalie; a beautiful Spa tucked away among the blooming vineyards near charming Bordeaux is exactly what your body deserves.

The Les Sources is home to great slimming and anti-aging massage programs as well as antioxidant based cures that enhance natural beauty. They are especially amazing for that usually difficult post pregnancy weight loss.

The Gudda bath hot water is “powered” courtesy of firewood). Try the third floor for great tree top views and if you can afford it, some private treatment.
