Newest Review: ... Moulin museum, which is dedicated to one of the most famous names of the French resistance. However probably the biggest attraction in the town centre is the area in front of the Place de La Bourse, where every twenty minutes jets of water vapour rise from the pavement, followed shortly afterwards by water which pours from under the pavement to create a shallow paddling pool right by the ... more

I have just returned from just under two weeks in Bordeaux, and found it to be a really pleasant place to spend part of my summer holidays. I stayed initially at the Citea Rodesse residence, and would suggest that you are much better off with a double studio than a one bedroom apartment (I stayed initally in the former and then in the latter when my family arrived midway through the first week), as the apartment was absolutely tiny, probably no bigger than the studio, but with a wall to divide it in two! It was not badly located, near the Meriadeck shopping centre and about a ten minute walk from the very centre of Bordeaux, but with hindsight I would probably have ... Read the complete review

Last year we were fortunate enough to have enough money to stay in Bordeaux for three nights as part of our fabulous fortnight in France. We flew from Birmingham for £17 each way (plus the usuals) with BMI Baby. For five of us the airfare cost about £490, which was a bargain for August. A car was simple enough to hire for the fortnight, using a good comparison site and we booked a cheap Novotel room near the airport for 79 Euros a night inclusive of breakfast, which was probably cheaper than Youth Hostel prices. So we were all set! We only had to persuade our friends from Edinburgh to come along too. That way we could palm one of our kids ... Read the complete review

I spent a year living in Bordeaux as a European Exchange student (ERASMUS), and I found it a vibrant and lively place with fantastic restaurants, glorious bars and several huge parks. Not to mention a host of museums (including a Renoir in the main art museum), historic monuments and mind-blowing shops. AND it's only a short drive away from some stupendously huge sandy beaches! So I get a bit narked when I read reviews, both on here and on Epinions (where this was originally posted), condemning the town as being drab and grey, and simply fixating on the wine. There is SO much more than wine to recommend this South Western French city! At one stage, ... Read the complete review

I stayed in Bordeaux for 3 months last year and its great. 40 minutes from the endless beaches of the Atlantic coast and deep in the midst of wine country the city of Bordeaux and surrounding countryside has something for everyone. The main shopping area is the Rue St. Catherine one of the longest shopping streets in the world. It is beautiful. 19th Century architecture down each side and some great shops and now they're improving the pavements. The Grand Theatre is spectacular although works are going on around it at the moment. The waterfront is worth a look too and there are several interesting museums. Night life is really good too thanks to the PLace de la ... Read the complete review

I went on holiday for three weeks to the Atlantic coast near Bordeaux to a place called Arachon in Aquitaine. This is the place where the french go on holiday, they don't go to the mediterranean because there are too many tourists and it is too expensive. I'm certainly not going to argue with the locals. The climate is very similar during the day to the med as there are more onshore breezes which help you cool down and is good for flying kites.The beaches are virtually empty and the sandy beaches literally stretch for hundreds of miles. The sea is significantly less polluted and smelly, while being a touch colder offers more variety than the mediterranean, be ... Read the complete review
