At the mouth of the Gironde estuary stands France's oldest lighthouse, Cordouan. The original light might have been a little basic—wood chips burning in a metal box—but the gilt-heavy interior featured a lavish spiral staircase, ample closet space, and a chapel with a mosaicked ceiling, where presumably the keeper retreated when it was windy to pray the fortification budget hadn't been blown on the décor.

Surround yourself and your olfactory senses in similar opulence with a two-night stay at the Hôtel Rollan de By for £235 (up to £449 in value), or spend three nights for £329 (up to £662 in value). Tucked amongst the vines of one of the region's well-known vineyards, you'll upgrade to a deluxe room—either Cabernet or Merlot—and drink in a blend of antique furniture, 18th-century art, and contemporary chic. As befitting their names, you'll find half a bottle of wine waiting, which should whet your appetite for a vineyard visit and wine tasting, where you'll sample tipples from the heart of Médoc.

Each morning starts with a French breakfast—a seasonally-changing mix of fresh breads, cheeses, pastries, and jams, alongside yoghurt and fruit—ideal if you want to spend a day exploring Lynch Bages in Pauillac or one of many other châteaux around the region. Alternatively, clear your head with a trip to the estuary five kilometres away, and visit Cordouan, also known as 'the Versailles of the Sea'. If the interior doesn't take your breath away, the view after you've tackled the 311 steps to the top just might.

Luxuriate in this Escape, and you could leave Gironde like a lighthouse: beaming.

  • ''The ideal climate and soils for growing vines have therefore turned the Gironde into a dream destination for wine lovers.''
