Bordeaux, 7th largest urban area in France, lies on either side of the Stone Bridge built across the Garonne under Napoleon Bonaparte.
It’s hard to travel the region without noticing the vineyards that still lend it its nobility.
In Bordeaux culinary and historical heritage are inseparable. Blaye, with its castle, has a treat for the eye as well as the palate.
Less famous than its wines, the fishing huts teetering over the Gironde, are also part of the region’s heritage.
Some 100 kilometres south of Bordeaux, the shoreline suddenly takes on relief with the Pilat dune, which rises to 117 metres. At its foot the Arguin bank, a wonderful string of sand is equally captivating.
And in the heart of the Arcachon Basin blooms the Ile aux Oiseaux. 2 strange wading birds have made their home their. They are called tchanquée cabins.
For the last 10 years Bordeaux has been undergoing a real urban revolution. A policy of major civil construction whose finest showcase must be the banks of the Garonne. This open-air construction lot will soon reach the marina where one Italian restaurateur saw which way the wind was blowing. A report to be drunk without moderation!
