Luxury villas in Bordeaux

The Gironde enjoys an ideal climate, mild in winter and with dashes of Indian summer in springtime and autumn. There is just the right amount of rainfall required for the Bordeaux vineyards to flourish and to ensure the countryside’s luxuriant greenery. Summers are hot and sunny but never overbearingly so.

Gironde also preserves a precious monumental heritage dating back to the Middle Ages and whose edifices may still be visited today, such as Roquetaillade castle in Mazères, in South Gironde, a 12th and 14th-century fortress that had the honour of being restored by the famous architect Viollet-le-Duc.

For city culture Bordeaux is unmissable – a thorough make-over has brought out the character of its striking historic 18th century buildings, added 21st century touches (including gleaming tram system), all combining to make Bordeaux a modern European gem. Strolling around the cafés, bistros & Haute Couture boutiques of the Quartier St Pierre is a delight. The historic city of Bordeaux, now a UNESCO world heritage site, offers a diverse range Art Galleries, Museums, Haut Couture and Entertainment.
