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.
