You'll never get bored o' good ol' Bordeaux

Raise a glass to Bordeaux—a city so good, they named a wine after it. Set along the Garonne River, Bordeaux is a lively city known for its rich local history and scenic country vistas, as well as a wealth of museums and other cultural institutions. Perhaps best known for its famed vineyards and wineries, Bordeaux is a popular destination for culinary tourism, and you'll find plenty of world-class dining in the area, too. A major cultural hub, your Bordeaux vacation rental will put you close to landmarks like the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux and the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux.

Eat (and drink) your heart out in Bordeaux

Bordeaux's motto may as well be "Eat, drink, and be merry," and the region's rolling hillsides and riverfront gardens make an ideal backdrop for a leisurely picnic lunch with a bottle (or 2) of local wine. In the center of town, you can stroll amid the upscale shops and eateries that line the city's historic public plazas, and the city also hosts regular food, art, and culture festivals throughout the year. Love music? You can take your pick from a number of live music venues featuring performances by local and international acts most nights of the week.

Bordeaux's winemaking is nothing to whine about

We'd bet that the first time you heard Bordeaux's name mentioned, it was in the context of the region's excellent wines, and you'll find a number of winemakers in the area. A popular choice for visitors, the Chateau d'Agassac offers everything from guided winery tours to elegant dinners with expertly paired wines, all in a 13th-century castle that would make Cinderella green with envy. The city also boasts a number of art and cultural institutions—you can check out world-class artworks at the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, or catch a live performance at the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux.

Bucolic Bordeaux's boundless, bountiful beauty

Just under 40 miles from the Atlantic coast in the Aquitaine region of France, Bordeaux occupies a low-lying area beside the Garonne River, surrounded by low hills and rolling countryside. At the nearby Landes de Gascogne Regional Natural Park, you'll find more than 775,000 acres of preserved wilderness—including pine forests, wetlands, and coastline—between the Garonne River and the Atlantic Ocean. The park is also home to a waterfront bird sanctuary that sees about 30,000 migratory birds each year. With a Bordeaux vacation rental, you'll be surrounded by one of France's most diverse ecosystems.
