The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Bordeaux is undoubtedly most famous worldwide for its superb wines. It is the capital of the region known as Aquitaine and is a major cultural centre and a transportation hub between southern France and Spain.
If you wish to break up the hustle & bustle of the City during your stay the apartments offer an ideal base from which to explore the Aquitaine Region.
It is easy to hire a car from the airport or the train station. For those interested in viniculture, Bordeaux is surrounded with Chateaux and vineyards. The most famous St Emilion only half an hour away, the Medoc or Haute Medoc due North and the Graves and Entre-deux Mers area due South East of Bordeaux.
If you want a bit of sea air then the Atlantic coast, with Arcachon, Ile de Re or Biscarosse with huge sand dunes, gorgeous beaches and wonderful seafood restaurants are all within an hours reach.
This elegant city is rich in history, culture, arts, music, legendary wines and gastronomy. It is not only the fine wines capital of the world but also a vibrant centre of trade, industry, services and business.
The city centre is known for its neoclassic architecture and wide avenues, which over recent years have undergone a major investment to include cleaning up the building facades and renovating the quayside, to make a fashionable restaurant and bar district. A state of the art tram system is now operating in the city, which has reduced traffic congestion and left the city centre pedestrianised and easy to navigate.
Bordeaux is a fantastic showcase for Romanesque, gothic and Renaissance art displayed in museums, churches, forts, galleries, mansions, gardens and public walkways and buildings.
Bordeaux is a fantastic urban City steeped in history as well as offering plenty of green space. The Quay has been transformed with amazing gardens, lawned areas with avenues of lime trees and even the trams drive on grass tracks. Jardin de Public is close by to the apartments where you will find a great city centre park with Botanical gardens, children's playground with a Carousel and a restaurant / cafe to pass a sunny afternoon.
