City of Bordeaux

Bordeaux, the blossoming beauty....

18 min by train from our closest station Cérons, or half-an-hour by car from our house, Bordeaux is a great city to visit. This regional capital used to be called the sleeping beauty, but although she has kept her laid-back attitude, Bordeaux is now blossoming!

Don't miss the renovated riverside Quai des Marques, with its terraces and stores, the largest water mirror in the world on Place de la Bourse, plenty of cafés, wine bars and restaurants, the newly opened wine museum Cité du Vin, and the restored industrial quarters  Darwin.

According to The Lonely Planet, Bordeaux was the number one city to visit in the world in 2017!
