Campervan Rental Bordeaux

The area around Bordeaux is world-famous for the many wine estates it hosts. Each year, this rich heritage gives rise to events such as the Spring Wine Festival, the Grand Cru Weekend, and the "Bordeaux Fête le Vin". Wine is the pride of the people of Bordeaux, which is why they do not hesitate to celebrate it.

The city also stands out thanks to its architectural heritage. The Place de la Bourse or the Saint-André cathedral where its big bell bears witness to the rich history of the Gironde. The steep streets of the city center serve as links between the various public squares, each more charming than the last.

Getting to Bordeaux

The city of Bordeaux is located in the Garonne estuary in the southwest of the country. Bordeaux-Mérignac airport is located 12km west of the city. Ryanair, British Airways, and EasyJet are all airlines that offer flights to the wine city. The A10 highway from the north and the A63 and A62 motorways from the south provide access to the ring road. From the east, you will need to take the N89 national road. Furthermore, the grand Bordeaux Saint-Jean station allows you to reach the city center by train.

Parking in Bordeaux

When visiting, it is best to first find a place to park your RV rental in Bordeaux safely. The Allée de Chartres car park is open between 8 am and 8 pm for around £13/€15 per day. In addition, the 24-hour Bord'eaux Village car park on the banks of the Garonne charges £22/€26 per day. Outside the city, the OnePark at Bordeaux Loake or the Zenpark in Mérignac offers more affordable prices. However, you will need to use public transport to get to the city center.

The best time to rent a RV in Bordeaux

Weather graph for average temperatures in Bordeaux
Average temperatures in Bordeaux per month

Bordeaux's proximity to the Atlantic Ocean has a huge influence on the city's climate. Indeed, the climate varies from day to day. The clouds in the morning can give way to a beautiful sun in the afternoon or vice versa. Nevertheless, the weather remains mild throughout the year, making motorhome rental in Bordeaux possible in any season.

Summer temperatures vary on average between 15°C and 28°C. This means that the people of Bordeaux enjoy beautiful sunny summers without the extreme heat. In winter, temperatures range between 3°C and 9°C for the coldest periods. It is quite rare to see the thermometer drop below 0°C. January is the coldest and wettest month of the year. Conversely, August is the driest and warmest month. The inhabitants of Bordeaux know how to use this mild climate to their advantage, by taking long walks along the Garonne or sitting at a café terrace in one of the many squares of the city.

Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean makes Bordeaux a very attractive city in the summer, especially during July and August. Prices tend to go up at this time and availability of accommodation becomes scarce. While January is the cheapest and least crowded month, May and June are ideal for campervan rental in Bordeaux. The weather is pleasant at this time of year, and the number of visitors is reasonable.
