LifeinourVan City Reviews | Bordeaux | France

What we liked about it

here’s just a few ideas….

Reason one

Bordeaux really is as vibrant a city as Berlin or London in our humble opinion and perfect for kids! But don’t miss the Bordeaux city pass as it has a great city tour included… use the trams to get around but don’t miss the fantastic riverside sports park.

Reason two

Ever since we were unbelievably lucky enough to get a place in Complete France’s ‘Top 6 Inspiring Blogs about France’ we’ve tried hard to do this beautful country justice… so here’s a first hand tip ‘Bordeaux really, really discounts it’s prices in the shoulder season… so grab a bargain like us before the season starts as you’ll save a ton of cash in what is a relatively pricey city’ 

Still not convinced? Here’s another one:

Reason three

As Bordeaux regularly features in France’s Top 10 Christmas Markets, why not schedule in some Christmas shopping on a visit in December. You’ll enjoy local Acquitaine treats like the chocolates from Bayonne, armagnac, pear and prune spirits, faïences from Samadet, potteries from Saint Faust, blown glass from Vianne .
