Overview

A “Grape” place to taste the good life

Bordeaux, gateway to vineyards

Bordeaux is located in the heart of the Aquitaine region and is only 3 hours away by TGV from Paris. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is the epicurean French destination par excellence. Bordeaux has over a hundred thousand hectares of vineyards and 10,000 grape growers. The city produces large quantities as well as some of the most expensive wines in the world. From Bordeaux, you can take the train to Saint Emilion, one of the world’s most famous vineyards, or opt for a guided tour in a vineyard to taste one of the famous vintage wines of Margaux, Pauillac or Saint-Julien.

About France


Have a walk along the Quais de la Garonne overlooked by the harmonious 18th century façades. Continue to the cathedral Saint-André and the nearby Pey-Berland tower for a panorama over the city. In the evening, have a drink in the Allées de Tourny with a view over the Grand Théâtre. There are two public parks in Bordeaux where you can relax - Jardin botanique de Bordeaux and Jardin botanique de la Bastide. Nature lovers should visit the Bassin d’Arcachon to enjoy a moment of pure bliss on top of its Dune du Pyla (Europe’s highest sand dune) which has an imposing view over the Atlantic Ocean.

Take a break on a terrasse in the quartier Saint-Pierre to sample some of the finest wines together with a Magret de canard and a cannelé (local pastry).

Bordeaux has a wealth of luxury stores which are located in the Golden Triangle, within, Cours de l’Intendance, Cours Georges Clemenceau and Allées de Tourny.

    Excellent travel, bad infrastr |
    "Only 20 minutes Time is given before the platform number is provided. Platforms are 2 steps lower than the train. For the elderly handling heavy luggage is very difficult. Thankfully kind French helped us with our luggage. "

    "Same as above. The ticket officers on the trains were helpful and friendly despite little English. There was a food trolley that came through which was well stocked. "

    "Unlike the individual seats the seats with two couples facing each other are quite cramped even in 1st class and are best avoided. That said the journey was fast and convenient and we arrived in Paris before acquaintances who flew from Bordeaux. Unfortunately we traveled on a Sundayand the carriage was crowded with suitcases in the corridor,a fact ignored by train staff. "

    "Way to Go!" |
    "Traveled from Bordeaux to Paris with some big suitcases after 3 weeks holiday in France. We found the journey quick and interesting and there was plenty of space in the carriage for all the baggage. We have flown and driven before but this trip was by train and a very good experience. Lunch from the cafe car, with a local red wine is just fine! And all at great value. "
