La Vie est Belle | Secret Spa Heaven



Sometime’s there are vacation’s where you rent a huge villa with friends, watch the heavy sticker getting slapped on your neatly packed case, do shades the entire holiday,  sunbathe, drink tequila and come back to the city with the feeling you want to bathe in Berocca for the next month…..and take another holiday!

But other times for me, there are breaks when I like to stop. Go somewhere different,  breathe fresh air,  remove every bit of make up, take a gf and be  natural for a few days …Skinny Dipping optional! 😉

October and November are so busy! Designer’s are shooting their AW campaign’s , my diary is full with castings, fittings, shoots & planes. Im also Art Directing & casting Models/Photographers for client’s Campaigns – its all a bit full on! So its nice to take a few days at the beginning of October to have some downtime.

Here is a place that is a little bit dreamy and a lot beautiful that I fell in love with for those moments you want to detox, recharge and go back to basics..

LES SOURCES DE CAUDALIE  Spa Retreat – Bordeaux, France


“Just 20-minute’s outside Bordeaux city centre. Set amongst the French vineyards and above a natural warm water spring that is rich in minerals is the  Spa retreat, Les Source De Caudalie is a magical, secret hideaway. Deep in the grounds of Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte estate, it overlooks the Grand vineyard that stretches as far as you can see. The treatment rooms are made of Wood & Stone surrounded by Garden Lakes…” 

There is a feeling of calm & tranquility as soon as you arrive. The spa treatments use the spring water combined with the benefits of the vine and its grapes.  Which leave your body feeling refreshed and completely rested.

TIP: Try the CAUDALIE GRAND FACIAL TREATMENT for a relaxing and anti oxidant facial, that leaves your skin squeaky clean, moisturised & illuminated!

As some of you may know,  I love  the French brand, Caudalie  from my Spot on Skin blog. 

This spa has been created by the founders of Caudalie  – Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas .  “The vine and grape’s possess exceptional powers for the skin” this secret was first founded by Caudalie in 2001.

 All their products use completely natural & paraben free ingredients from the Vineyards. The Sap from the Vine is the main ingredient for my favourite Caudalie product (Vino Perfect Serum).  It is considered “The Treasure” by French dermatologist, Vercauteren.


This is definitely a place to just drop everything for a few days and come back feeling like you’ve  had a holiday!
