Hello, bordeaux

Celebrating wine, gastronomy, arts and culture, Bordeaux is a city that represents the very essence of the French spirit. Located in the southwest of France, on the Garonne River, Bordeaux casts its charms around the region through its broad pedestrian boulevards, gorgeous squares, modern buildings and historical architecture. Pay a visit to Bordeaux on your next trip to France and see why the city was once elected as "European Best Destination".

The City
Associated to wine and the pleasures of life like no other city, Bordeaux is the kingdom of the grape. Wine bars, wine merchants, and over a hundred winery castles throng all around Bordeaux. Wine is savoured and enjoyed, but is also used for health purposes through wine therapy—a spa treatment using grape extract, said to be beneficial for the body. The beautiful Baroque buildings, which were once erected in the city centre to conceal the slums, have made Bordeaux world-famous for its architecture. On top of its historic charm and presence, the city has built a modern character with brand new futuristic buildings, modern transports, and a town life that becomes trendier every day. With its well organised river banks, structured squared, and pedestrian streets, this city on the Garonne is a pleasure to walk through, whether it is to visit, shop, or taste the French gastronomy.
