advice on car journey from the airport - a new driver

by Tessa88

Hi there, I have not been to Bordeaux before and am an experienced UK driver but not in France. Can anyone give me advice on getting from the airport to Puisseguin near St Emilion? I have done a multi-map route and the numerous slip road around Bordeaux seem a bit confusing to read about on paper - is it like this when you are actually on the road? I'd like to be prepared ...

any advice welcome,

tessa

Hi. Are you staying at the Chateau de Roques in Puisseguin? If so, you will love it. The drive out of Bordeaux is not as bad as you make it sound. It's pretty well signposted. Have you checked the Michelin map site? http://www.viamichelin.com/

That will give you very specific directions turn by turn and you can even print out a little map from the site.

The only place we ran into trouble driving was near Puisseguin where the roads are through vineyards and everything looks exactly alike. We finally stopped and asked a local boulanger for directions and that took care of it. You could also take a GPS device with you and let it do the thinking.

You will be driving on the "wrong" side of the road (for you) so try to start out on dual carriageways to get the feeling for it. After a few minutes, you'll be fine. We just remind each other when we get in the car to drive on the right side of the road. (We do this in the UK, not France, of course, since we normallY drive on the right.)

Have a grand time. It's a beautiful area and do visit St. Emilion whilst there.

Hi there, thanks for that. I am staying beyond there actually, in a small self catering house, but that's the nearest village.

Thanks for reassuring me that the roads are not too bad.

Cheers,
Tess

Travel Tips for Bordeaux

Les Jardins Publiques-a place to relax completely

by JulesH

The Jardins Publique near to Quinconces are perfectly manicured but welcoming gardens featuring huge tree and shrub specimens, green lawns, water features and crunchy gravel paths winding throughout. Birds hop right up to you to say hello and all is right with the world. There is a small childrens play area but there are no screaming kids running wild here and no dogs are allowed off their leash. Also, the lawns bear no stiff signs asking you to keep off the grass and appear to be kept immaculate by an unknown force of nature. Plenty of benches line the paths to allow you to stop for a while and take in the beauty around you, but you could be just as happy flopping down on the grass under a tree. This park is a haven for a little peace and tranquility on a hot and sticky day. Wonderful.

Cathedrale Saint Andre

by KiNyA

In 1137, the future King Louis VII married Eleanor of Aquitaine in this cathedral. The exterior wall of the nave dates from 1096 (most of the rest was built in the 13th and 14th centuries). The 15-th century belfry, Tour Pey-Berland, stands behind the choir, which has chapels nestled among the flying buttresses.

Pont de Pierre

by barryg23

There are nice views of the city and the river from the Pont de Pierre, a short distance from the city centre. This bridge, commissioned by Napolean and completed in 1822, is a well known symbol of Bordeaux and is one of the most beautiful structures in the city.

Biggest Square in Europe!!

by aaaarrgh

The very grand "Esplanade des Quinconces" proclaims itself as the largest square in Europe (just around the corner from the largest water mirror). It is 12 hectares of open space, treelined avenues and transport junction, the size of ten football pitches!! It replaced the massive Chateau Trompette, which was destroyed in 1816. Today the space is used for occasional circuses and public events. At one end is the River Garonne and two tall columns representing trade and navigation. To the west is the impressive Girondins Column (1899), surrounded by fountains.

Just around the corner is Bordeaux's main Tourist Information Bureau and its Grand Theatre.

I was staying close to the Esplanade. There is a tram service which goes all the way from the train station, along the bank of the Garonne and past the Pont de Pierre to 'Quinconces', a great introduction to the city for 1.30 euros!

Musee des Beaux Arts (2)

by hquittner

The museum collection keeps growing but the museum does not and the modern works are crowded in with too many fine works per wall, like some 19C Parisian Salon competition. Probably the best work in the Museum is Delacroix' "Greece Expiring on the Ruins of Missolonghi" (1826). There are several Corot's and even early works by native son Redon. They are very crowded as the pictures show but the collection is quite varied and contains works of recent great artists.
