Wine away the hours in Gironde, France

Raise a glass to Gironde, France. The country's southwest region has been enticing travelers with sumptuous wines for centuries, and it's hard to imagine a more quintessential spot to kick back with some red than a chateau in Bordeaux. We've also heard it through the grapevine that there's a lot more to savor in this French department. In addition to vineyards, Gironde vacation rentals can be your home base amid trips to nature parks, art museums, medieval sites, quaint lighthouses, lively shopping districts, and even one of Europe's most majestic sand dunes.

Hanging around, or on the vine, in Gironde

If wine's your thing, then you know Bordeaux. Cross the unofficial wine capital of the world (official, if you ask anyone in Gironde) off your bucket, er… bottle list by savoring sips at various vineyards. Then admire the architecture and history of Bordeaux's more than 350 national heritage sites. For some oceanfront action, take your pick of surfing or sunbathing in Lacanau before drying off at your choice of Gironde vacation rentals. Depending on when you visit the happening region of Gironde, you may find yourself cheering on marathoners, grooving through a jazz festival, or scrutinizing treasures at an antique fair.

Oh the places you'll go in the city of Bordeaux

Some visit Bordeaux and say, "Great wine town." UNESCO called it "an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble." Either way, it's not to be missed on your trip to Gironde. Bordeaux boasts over 350 national heritage sites. Must-see landmarks include the Place de Bourse, Bordeaux Cathedral, and the Grande Theatre de Bordeaux. To study up on wine, stop by La Cite du Vin museum, and get your art appreciation on at the Musee des Beaux Arts or CAPC Museum of Contemporary Art. The Dune du Pilat, Europe's tallest sand dune, is a sight to behold in La Teste-de-Buch.

Comfortable climes all year in mild Gironde

The summers in Gironde, France are warm and mild, hovering within the 70s and making it a popular time to visit. You'll snag the best deals on Gironde vacation rentals in the cooler but still comfortable winter months. Think occasional frost, but never snow.

A rain jacket is a smart addition to your carry-on no matter when you visit, and be sure to pack a coat for cooler nights if visiting around the winter months.

Gironde, France—from coast to vine

Gironde is the largest department in France, located in the southwestern region of the country along the Atlantic Ocean and extending inland. While known for picturesque vineyards producing palatable vins, Gironde has many other geographical delights to showcase. See everything from the Atlantic coastline along the Bay of Biscay to winding estuaries and rivers and lush forests and valleys. Gironde vacation rentals may find you in the historic center of Bordeaux, along the Gironde Estuary, in the beach town of Lacanau, or along the Arcachon Bay, home to the tallest sand dune in Europe.
