About Bordeaux


Bordeaux region
The Bordeaux region is undoubtedly the most famous wine region in the world. In the region, the Dordogne and Garonne rivers make their way to the sea through the Gironde. The beautiful village of Saint Émilion where many of Bordeaux’s top wines come from, is undoubtedly the unofficial wine capital of the world. The city of Bordeaux, also known as little Paris, is a great place to visit. The city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List (like Saint Émilion) but is also a cosy place by the many terraces and nice shops. For those who do not mind to drive a bit, the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean are easy to reach as are ski resorts in the Pyrenees. “Living like a King in France" is tangible in the Bordeaux region. The mild climate makes it pleasant all year round, and summer heat is tempered by its cooling sea breezes. The sky in Néac at night is perfect for star gazing thanks to a minimum of light pollution. The silence is breathtaking.
