Known as a famous wine-growing region in France, Bordeaux is a city on the Garonne River and is home to beautiful attractions, such as the Gothic Cathedrale Saint-Andre, Musee des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, Place de la Bourse, and the Miroir d’Eau.
This southwest corner in France is a private sanctuary for wine lovers and a beautiful destination for a romantic retreat for two. When travelers arrive here, the city’s countryside enchants them without knowing truly why – this is what the French call la douceur de vivre, or the sweetness of life.
Rich historical heritage
Bordeaux is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (it is one of the largest in the world), with more than 360 historical monuments and museums; you won’t ever run out of things to see and explore. Take a stroll on one of the longest shopping destination streets in Europe (Rue St. Catherine) to find an outfit for a night out with your loved one before sipping some amazing wine.
To the east of the city are renowned vineyards and lush green rows and towns like that of St-Emilion, while to the north is the Atlantic coast with white-sand beaches and a fairly cosmopolitan crowd.
In addition to visiting the vineyards, you can also stop by the La Cite du Vin, a wine museum where you can brush up on some skills and history, or take a class before heading to one of the best restaurants in France.
Great dining options
Dine at Le Pressoir d’Argent, a 2 Michelin star restaurant that will give you a culinary experience you will remember forever on an already unforgettable journey with your loved one.
