Probably the most famous thing about Bordeaux is the wine and surly a trip to this part of the world wouldn’t be complete without an adventure in a vineyard. The department of Gironde produces more fine than any other part of France and in recent years the wine estates have opened their gates to the general public.
Many of the estates and wine schools in the surrounding areas now offer tasting courses including practical (always best) and theoretical classes. These classes can be for a couple of hours or a full day and you will certainly leave with a better understanding and appreciation for the local tipple.
If you are traveling with children Bordeaux offers a great experience with lots of activities for all to enjoy. The Bordeaux-Pessac Zoo and the Ferme Exotique de Cadaujac are great places to spend the day and the kids will love the animals, pony rides and other activities.
If relaxing on a terrace with a coffee or a cheeky afternoon wine then the range of places to relax in Bourdeaux is fantiastic. Place des Chartrons is a charming place to stop for a coffee or the slightly more elegant Triangle d’Or. Further south you will find the Place du Palais close to Pore Cailhau this has an abundance of terraces that seem to be fitting for people in their 40’s and the age seems in decrease the further along the streets you go until you are surrounded by hipsters and over gelled hair styles.
