Idyllic all year round, Bordeaux is a region of lush countryside, sprawling vineyards, and luxurious chateaux
Bordeaux is in the Gironde region of France, famed for its vineyards and wineries. The area boasts an ideal climate with mild winters and warm summers, making it a year-round travel destination.
Sitting on the Garonne River, the port city of Bordeaux is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is known for its 13th-century Cathédrale Saint-André, elegant 18th-century mansions, and diverse art museums and galleries.
Just outside of Bordeaux, there is plenty for visitors to explore in the Gironde region, from pretty country villages to quaint seaside towns.
Located between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, The Entre-Deux-Mers is not to be missed. As the largest winemaking area in the Bordeaux region, a visit to a winery or three is a must. The fortified villages are evidence of the region’s medieval history, and there are plenty of monasteries, abbeys and churches to explore.
Another highlight is the tranquil Arcachon Bay, famed for its oyster farms and calm waters, ideal for kayaking and boating. It is also known as the home of the tallest dune in Europe - The Dune of Pilat, from which visitors can enjoy breathtaking views of the region.
