What Makes The Hotel So Special

If there is one thing that sets Les Sources de Caudalie apart from other luxury hotels, is its commitment to environmental conservation. In a bid to adopt sustainable practices, most of the produce is sourced organically. Further, the Bee Garden provides a year-long supply of fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, herbs, and edible flowers, reducing dependency on imports.
With an emphasis on high-quality products, the hotel has sourced marble from the Pyrenees mountains for its rooms, antique and refurbished furniture, raw wood species, and woodwork recovered from the region. Plastic packaging has been replaced with recycled paper and maize starch, while all the hotel lights are powered using LED bulbs.
