Bordeaux; the city of wine. Very few places can rival the vineyards that grow in this region of France. Wedged between 300,000 hectares of parkland and the estuary of the River Dordogne, visitors—both French and international—flock to this dynamic slice of happiness in the south. Bordeaux is such a desirable destination, it is now regarded as ‘Little Paris.’

However, it hasn’t always been such a sought after location, and a major sprucing up of the city has seen it completely reincarnated. Now, even within urban parts of the city there is a countryside atmosphere, and Bordeaux is highly prized by those who reside there.

Across the local landscape are rolling fields neatly packed with dense, thriving grapevines. Snaking roads lined with oatmeal-hued, stone walls knit the green scenery together like a seamless jigsaw puzzle. Life is certainly sweet in these parts, and the entire region is a foodie’s paradise.

There really is more to France than Paris, and Bordeaux is a prime example of the country’s alternative offerings. High on the list of popular holiday destinations, visitors will leave feeling as rejuvenated as the city itself. With cheese and wine bars on every corner, you can taste the sophistication whilst raising a glass to this city’s triumphs. Find time to mooch around the medieval streets, and visit the water mirror to watch frolicking families with their carefree attitudes enjoying the sun.
