Relais du Château d’Arche

Address: 33210 Sauternes
Tel: 05 56 76 67 67  Fax: 05 56 76 69 76
Geo-coordinates:  Latitude: 44:32:12N (44.53659)     Longitude: -0:20:36W (-0.34320)  

The Relais du Château d’Arche is just exactly what you would look for from a vineyard hotel – within walking distance of the village of Sauternes (you even get to hear the church bells ringing across the surrounding vineyards), a gravel courtyard, smart but individual rooms (just nine, so there are never too many guests around). My only negative is that the breakfast area is a little soulless, but all in all this is a gorgeous place to stay.

Useful information: Rooms: €120 - €160; breakfast: €10.
