Bordeaux Vacations

Since 2000, “Sleeping Beauty” is enjoying a renaissance of cleanliness, historical sites, transportation and city life, kissed awake by mayor (and ex-Prime Minister) Alain Juppe’. Bordeaux University energizes the city with its large student population, and you can enjoy a stroll through the Quais district on the banks of the River Gaconne, or ... Read more

For an alternative to the cliches and crowds of Paris, look to the Southwest of France where Bordeaux is more than just a wine region...it's a vibrant and absolutely beautiful city. Shhh..but you heard it here first!

Under 2 hours away, Bordeaux is excellent for history, architecture and restaurants. Take a tram ride to see the city or stroll or take a river boat along the banks of the river Gironde. In the Lac region of Bordeaux, the commercial centre provides shopping whilst the district of St Pierre provides the oldest part of Bordeaux.

In my opinion this is the most beautiful city in France. Restaurants, cafes, bars, to suit all budgets. The architecture, the fabulous tram system making is easy and cheap to travel into the city, Churches, and of course the River itself. Just sit and watch the world go by! 1 hour by car.

Bordeaux is an amazing city not to be missed! Book a boat tour, take your family to the famous "water mirror", relax in a park, climb the 229 steps of the Pey-Berland tower and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the old Bordeaux.

Book a tour by bike!

A visit to Bordeaux is the right choice for everyone. A perfect combination for wine, beach and lovers of architecture. Also a great place to enjoy seafood, like shell fish, oysters and mussels.

This city is more than just wine. It's got a splendid old city, with many buildings from the 18th century, earning it a UNESCO world heritage status.

Beautiful, but also a bit boring... You want to go to the many villages around Bordeaux to taste the wine and the locale culture, but just stay in the city itself...
