Lonely Planet's City of the Year 2017

UNESCO Heritage Site

1hr from sanctuary surf/2hrs from Paris by train

Even for a city break alone Bordeaux is seriously worth a visit. Big enough to get lost in, but small enough to explore at your leisure. A mix of old winding backstreets, wide open riverside quays for a lazy summer promenade and centrally located 'squares', ideal for sipping a coffee and watching the world go bye, Bordeaux really has a lot to offer. With plenty of boutique shopping, artisanal craft and independent stores nestled amongst a wide array of restos, bistros and cafe's. Bordeaux is everything a city should be.

Bordeaux is sunlit vineyards... and among France’s most exciting, vibrant and dynamic cities.
