With a lively cosmopolitan vibe, a surprising gastronomical scene and an architectural ensemble labelled UNESCO World Heritage, Bordeaux is as artfully layered as its world-class wine.
To many, the name Bordeaux conjures up a tidal flood of tannins, earthy flavours and fruity notes. Like well-aged red wine, the city of Bordeaux is a full-bodied experience; the port city is as rich in culture as the region is in viticulture. The old part of town is a honey-coloured hive of 18th-century quays, squares and buildings with an official stamp of UNESCO World Heritage. Wide esplanades along the Garonne River and large public spaces with ornate fountains add a touch of lightness to a stately city of hefty columns and Hausmannian boulevards. Bordeaux obviously is about the nectar of the gods, too. To celebrate the hub of the world’s best wine region, a 21st-century architectural highlight was erected in Bordeaux. Called the Cité du Vin, this waterfront wonder is a museum on the art of making wine. Wine is a central theme throughout the Bordeaux region––on vineyards and in dark wine cellars, at châteaux and in ancient stone villages. Hire a campervan in Bordeaux and travel the famed wine routes, or travel to the coast for a surfing holiday at places like Mimizan and Lacanau. Fun times and good wines abound when you take an RV rental road trip in the Bordeaux region––just make sure to not drink and drive!
