The 18th century farmhouse that now houses Le Saint-James was converted and enlarged by Jean Nouvel in 1989. The architect designed four pavilions, each connected to the original building, to create the hotel's guest rooms. The most outstanding feature of this accommodation is the smooth transition from the interior of the rooms to the natural surroundings, which gives the feeling of dining, sleeping, resting and relaxing in the middle of the vineyards. The architecture is so impressive that it has even been recognised by the Ministry of Culture as part of France's 20th century architectural heritage. Because of its panoramic views, Bouliac also is known as the “balcony of Bordeaux”  and provides a stylish and unobtrusive location, nod to the famed eponymous street in historic downtown Bordeaux.

Providing Suites, Classic, Deluxe and Prestige Rooms, each guest will find the matching option for them and can choose between several services offered by the hotel. Whether you prefer to have a glass of wine at the hotel bar, a cup of tea in the in-house tea room or enjoying a lazy breakfast in bed – Bouliac makes it possible for you.

If you want to escape from all the daily stress, you can take a swim in the atypical swimming pool or enjoy the sauna next to this astonishing bathing and basking spot.

The 1 Michelin-star Saint-James gourmet restaurant is open from Tuesday to Saturday for dinner (19:30 to 21:00) and additionally Wednesday to Saturday for lunch (12:00 to 13:00). The restaurant provides a comfortable atmosphere sitting down to a table in the heart of nature, surrounded by greenery and vines. Cooking with fresh ingredients found during each day’s market shopping the inventive, creative cuisine that never strays too far from the great classics will seduce you.

The bar at Le Saint-James opens onto a vast terrace, the hotel grounds and a limitless view of Bordeaux. Guests come to get away, reflect, but also to work, meet friends, savour some alone time, or enjoy a family gathering. The Café de l’Espérance, an annex of Le Saint-James, is located in central Bouliac and can be reached on foot from the hotel in a matter of minutes. It is opened every day of the week for lunch (12:00 – 13:30) and dinner (19:30 – 21:30). Perched above Bordeaux, this restaurant-style bistro welcomes guests with the warmth of wooden tables and chairs, a covered patio and a vast terrace. For those who love cooking or would like to learn more about the French cuisine, the hotel offers you cooking classes for all ages and abilities.

The region of Bordeaux is characterized by its exceptional heritage inherited from the 18th century by the great figures of the past who made it famous intellectually, culturally and politically, and of course the wine that bears its name. But also around Bordeaux you have various things to do in a multifaceted region. Coastal Aquitaine offers the ideal conditions for unforgettable fishing trips, pure relaxation, soothing thalassotherapy centres, but also cycling paths and golf courses in the shade of pine trees. Walks, hikes, horseback rides or canoe trips are also an experience in this unique landscape. Theme parks and zoos are an integral part of the surroundings too.
