Bordeaux Holiday Packages

Bordeaux holidays are about refined culture and aged wine—and perhaps a bike tour through row after row of leafy vineyards. This centre of French wine country had a resurgence in tourism in the mid-2000s when it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s easy to see why. Whether you're into architecture, fine dining or vino and cheese, Bordeaux packages are your escape from the norm.

Things to Do in Bordeaux

Wine tours and tastings are at the top of most Bordeaux visitors’ to-do lists. Several private companies offer trips to the vineyards to view the grapes and sip the finest reds and whites, or you can also drive yourself out to the wineries in one of Wotif’s car hire options in Bordeaux. Just make sure you recover from the buzz before exploring more of the city.

For the romantic side of Bordeaux, walk past the Place de la Bourse. This 17th-century royal palace is brilliantly lit at night, and its massive structure is echoed in the Miroir d'eau. Take a minute to “reflect”—it’s the world's largest reflecting pool. To put a bit of ritz in your Bordeaux holiday, visit the Bordeaux National Opera. The massive stage and intricate ceiling murals alone are reasons to visit, and the building not only hosts performances but also changing exhibits of costumes. Just don’t try to belt out any tunes of your own.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

The heart of the Bordeaux’s historic district is the Triangle-d'Or (Golden Triangle). Defined by three boulevards, the beautiful architecture houses some of the best shops in the city for name-brand fashion, particularly on Cours de l’Intendance. More reasonable prices and smaller boutiques can be found on the Rue Ste Cathérine. The Triangle-d'Or is very pedestrian-friendly and perfect for leisurely exploring at your own pace.

Thoughts of Bordeaux holiday packages often inspire visions of wine and cheese in travellers, but the city’s dining also has plenty of cuisine for carnivores, including delectable lamb and beef. With such close proximity to the Bay of Biscay, fresh seafood is also abundant. And as you would expect in France, there are plenty of patisseries selling an array of tempting sweet treats.

Nightlife is as abundant as brie and roquefort cheese in Bordeaux. There’s a youth-oriented club scene in the Bassins-à-Flots (Wet Docks) and Quai de Paludate. The latter is situated on the west bank of the Garonne river and is known for dance clubs, as well as live jazz and Brit pop. The historic St. Pierre district is also a good area to start—or finish—your night out in Bordeaux.
