17 Feb The Bordeaux Region for a 24 Hour Incentive
In this day and age it gets harder and harder to tempt clients or even colleagues out of the office for a meeting, celebration or teambuilding session. Therefore it is more important than ever to maximise on time and create an experience which has high impact and a good return on investment.
As a solution to this I would suggest the Bordeaux Region, the flights are plentiful, affordable and it’s only a flight duration of 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is a beautiful area of the world known for its quintessential architecture, wineries and picturesque countryside.
Just 10km’s from the city of Bordeaux in Bouliac you will find Le St James Hotel. A stunning contemporary hotel designed by Jean Nouvel and inspired by the tobacco drying barns in the region. All of the bedrooms have been uniquely designed all with their own individual features of designer furniture or bespoke artwork. In addition the hotel has an outdoor heated swimming pool, Michelin star restaurant and cookery school.
The cookery school is an ideal space to entertain up to 12 guests. The group can choose to take part in a themed lesson or even visit the local market to buy the produce before getting started. The friendly group atmosphere continues around the table where participants can sample their creations and share the experience with one another.
Apart from the cookery school there is also plenty of other activities in the surrounding area including wine tasting, an excursion to Bordeaux and a tour of the regions renowned art galleries.
