Where Vineyards Paint the Landscape with Elegance

Yes, wine is big…but when you go to Bordeaux, it's not only about wine. Water is also a big deal :).  If you walk by the River Garonne and the Gironde estuary, you'll see lots of interesting things like culture, nature, and fancy old buildings – dreamy, lofty chateaux. If you go south, you can enjoy the beautiful coastline, eat delicious oysters, and feel the smooth sand in the Arcachon basin. And don't forget to take a moment to simply relax and enjoy the happy feeling of being alive. Celebrate because you are in Bordeaux!

The City of Wine & Love

"Wine is a living thing. It is made, not only of grapes and yeast, but of skill and patience. When drinking it remember that to the making of that wine has gone, not only the labor and care of years, but the experience of centuries." - Allan Sichel

When you go to Bordeaux, allow the ancient waterways to lead you. There are fancy old buildings from the 18th century when this city used to be a port. These buildings line the edges of the Garonne River and its special quays are UNESCO classified. You can also see them around the big Place de la Bourse and near the famous water sculpture called the Miroir d'eau (water mirror).

We fell in love with the Cite Du Vin and would want the same for you. The riverside is a perfect frame for the Cité du Vin wine museum, the silhouette of its spectacular architecture is mirrored in the water, reflecting the extraordinary design of this iconic building, which looks like the swirl of wine in a glass, a true marriage of water and wine. The museum of wine is perfect for discovering the culture of wine, its wooden vault is evocative of the hold of a ship, the method of transport for wine in the past. We advise you keep half a day for this most memorable visit!

Explore the iconic vineyards & other regions

You simply cannot miss Saint-Emilion. It is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a very unique site were world-famous wineries, fine wine, beautiful architecture and great monuments are a perfect match. Médoc is Mecca of powerful red wines, the terroir of grands crus such as Margaux, Pauillac and Saint-Julien. The châteaux route of Médoc: a must-visit for any wine lover!

You will always find us suggesting the best ways to get to fine oysters! Cap Ferret is a forest and wild peninsula, home to a chic and relaxed atmosphere, on one side bordered by the calm waters of the Arcachon basin, and on the other by the crashing waves of the Atlantic. Its 11 oyster-farming villages have whimiscal names, like L’Herbe (The Grass),the Canon (le Canon), the Vine (La Vigne) and the Oven (le Four).

Your luxurious destination Spa in the heart of Bordeaux

A remarkable group of modern buildings has been crafted using local materials that were recycled. These buildings were made to match the surroundings of Château Smith Haut Lafitte. This place is called Les Sources de Caudalie, and it's encircled by its own vineyards and gardens with lakes. You can pick from various types of places to stay, and there's even a cigar bar with a great view, several restaurants to choose from, and a spa where they use grape-based treatments.

Then there is Saint-Tropez: a truly beautiful harbor that looks just like a postcard. Yachts shine against a backdrop of soft colors. Since the 1960s, there's been a fun and relaxed party feeling here. It spreads to the Pampelonne beaches where you can eat lunch on the sandy shore and look at the Mediterranean sea.

Bordeaux's gastronomy : a celebration of flavours

Renowned worldwide for its exceptional wines, Bordeaux offers a spectrum of flavors, from the bold reds of the Left Bank to the elegant whites of the Right Bank. But the culinary pleasures don't stop at wine. Bordeaux is also a treasure trove of delectable foods. Indulge in succulent cuts of locally-raised beef, paired perfectly with the region's famous wine, creating a symphony of taste.

"Bordeaux wines are not just a drink; they are a journey through the terroir, history, and passion that have been nurtured in every sip."

The fresh seafood from the nearby Atlantic Ocean, including oysters and mussels, brings the briny essence of the sea to your plate. As you explore the markets, the aromatic cheese and freshly baked bread will tempt your palate. It's a region where the harmony of flavors and the art of winemaking come together, making every meal a truly exquisite experience.
