La Grande Maison de Bernard Magrez
At the heart of Bordeaux in a late 19th-century mansion lies a 5-star hotel with six prestigious rooms, a residence of all the arts.
From its intimate welcome to its hushed atmosphere, its cuisine and its Bordeaux Grand Crus, La Grande Maison by Bernard Magrez embodies the city’s historic way of life when Bordeaux locals used to host and welcome each other in these rich mansions, now forming the soul and living memory of Bordeaux.
This authenticity, unique elegance and feast for the senses all reflect values which are dear to Relais & Châteaux, which is why in July 2015 (six months after opening), La Grande Maison was granted the honour of joining the Relais & Châteaux family. Uniting the most beautifully charming hotels and gourmet restaurants across the globe, this is the group’s fourth Bordeaux establishment.
Behind the robust white stone façade lies the magnificence of the Napoleonic era. This style is perfect for Bordeaux, home of Médoc and Sauternes fine wines which were named Grands Crus Classés in 1855.
The city owes its famous 1855 classification to Napoleon III…
The grandeur of this era is also reflected in the interior architecture: high ceilings, tall windows, mouldings on the walls, opulent exposed stone, and a majestic entrance staircase which leads to the rooms.
This establishment is truly a grande maison – a grand house. One where the customer experience is the focus of all attention and the aim is to delight at all times. Where authenticity wins out over showiness. Where elegance and refinement go hand in hand. Where service has a triple-A standard: Attentive, Authentic, Airy. Perfect service and dishes from a ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ together with choice bottles of rare wines.
The more than 1000-strong wine list contains all the Bordeaux Cru Classé wines and equivalent examples, a total of 259 wines: unique worldwide! Service in the French style, combining pure harmony with rare intimacy.
