The brand new Cite du Vin, a 21st-century architectural demonstration of what wine means to the city and the rest of the world. The UNESCO listed old city, on a crescent-shaped meander in the Garonne, demands your attention too, with its extraordinary 18th-century quays and squares, and fabulous civic buildings made from a beguiling honey-coloured stone.
Just the name of this glorious city is eponymous with viticulture, and if you’re an aficionado you’re almost duty-bound to come to the home of wine. You don’t need to be told that there’s a world of prestigious châteaux and smaller wineries to locate and visit. Ask a member of our team to guide you on the best vineyeards and castle to visit when you are in the area.
Don't Go Home Without
Bordeaux broke free of its old town walls when this majestic square on the left bank of the Garonne was built in the 1720s. Louis XV’s favourite architect, Jacques Gabriel, designed it, and the square didn’t take long to become a symbol for the city. Go up for a closer look to see the mascarons beneath the arches of the building and naturally, you’ll want to cross the road to the Water Miror.
The best way to visit Bordeaux is by tramway, cycle and walking. Leave your car at the hotel and catch a direct tram to the city from Lormont Gravieres tram station which is located 16 minutes walking distance from the hotel.
