Visiting Bordeau in May

by noworking

I will be visiting france with my husband and my 5 months old baby in mid May. I will be driving from CDG to bordeaux and have 3 day trip until we head back to Paris. We planned to stay in Bordeaux for 2.5 days, and thinking about sparing 1.5 day in another city on the way back to Paris. Is this a good idea and what city is good for stopping by? Or should we stay in Bordeaux for 4 whole days and head back to Paris directly? Thanks for your advice...

There are some very nice wine villages near Bordeaux. They would make for a good daytrip - St. Emilion is just one. The Dordogne region has wonderful things to see, but you really would probably need more time to include that as well as Bordeaux itself. That's a lot of driving you'll be doing!

France has a lot of statuary holidays in May. Make sure you check with your arrival date as the lines in front of the toll stations on the highways could be many kilometers long. Don't forget that May might be a fairly warm month in France and carry water with you on your drive for you and the baby. Try to rent a car with air conditioning. Good luck!

Travel Tips for Bordeaux

Monument aux Girondins

by bugulma

On the North of the old town there is Place des Quinconces, where you can enjoy wonderful monument. It was built in the 2nd quarter of XIX century and symbolizes Bordeaux as a part of French Republic. There is bus terminal and you can get the place without any problem.

Walk along the Esplanade

by Mique

If you intend to visit St-Bruno's, the one of the more actractive ways of getting there is to walk along the Esplanade. It runs from the Cours d'Albret almost all the way to St-Bruno's. The Esplanade is not really a park but it is some sort of green walkway. Where you can also sit, relax and be away from the busy city life.

Along this route you'll find several buildings with 60's and 70's architecture.

Bordeaux is the largest fine...

by montxito

Bordeaux is the largest fine wine-making region in the world, as well as the most legendary. This sterling reputation is built mostly on red wines, especially those from the Médoc, Saint-Èmilion, Pomerol, and the famous Sauternes (sweet white) districts.

Sample with sensuous delight the really great wines of Bordeaux. See what you think of the marriage of particular dishes and wines - oysters with fruity Graves, foie gras with Sauternes, shad with great Médoc vintages, game with Saint Èmilion. Taste some 'bouchons' (almond paste petits fours flavoured with Bordeaux liqueur brandy) 'pavés' (chocolate fondant) and the wonderful 'canelés' (small cakes made with egg yolks). Finally, yield yourself totally to a tour of the vineyards to learn more about the 53 'appellations' of the six great families of Bordeaux wine.

Approach St. Michael's Basilica

by hquittner

St. Michael’s Basilica was built over a 200 year period starting in 1350 with many modifications and changes in style so that it blends Gothic and Renaissance. It is usually approached on its North sidee as one proceeds from the Stone Bridge. The transept doors and North side were undergoing a severely needed cleaning when we came. Each transept has a Rose window and a tympanum, while the West door supports a large window above its carved tympaum. The tympani are late creations and we could not find information on their programs. The doors display other good examples of stonework. To the west of the church stands its free standing bell tower (which we describe in a General Tip), the tallest point in the city.

Bordeaux & Beyond

"Bordeaux and Beyond"

I know many regard me as an old fudydudy but I was young a long time ago but for the surfers amongst you if you travel south from Bordeaux and visit the Coast from Archahon to St John De Luz you will find some of the best surfing anywhere and for the older ones such as myself and my wife the Beaches and Lakes are great for all types of enjoyment.

Bordeaux is a great place to eat and relax in and the entertainment and culture is beyond compare so go ahead and enjoy this wonderful area of France.
