    • Wine tasting Bordeaux

      by ArthurK8 Online Now Jul 25, 2016 at 3:38 AM

      Hi there,

      Planning to visit Bordeaux in November. Would like to book a wine tasting tour. Have checked the ones provided on the website - unfortunately there is no public transport connection with those zones. Do you know any more places when wine tasting can be experienced? Or there is no chance to taste Bordeaux wine without a car? :)

    • 48hrs in Bordeaux - Wine tour, hotel and more

      by antuantuan Online Now Apr 13, 2015 at 7:52 AM

      Hi,

      I'm planning a weekend (from Friday night to Sunday night) in May.

      One of the things I'd definitely want to do is a Wine Tour. St Emilion seems to the most recommended choice both in terms of quality of wines and scenery. Now the main question would be whether it'd be worth doing a 1 day tour or just an afternoon one. What would you recommend? Also, small group or private?

      As far as the hotel is concerned, I have short listed the Grand Hotel and the Burdigala. I would get a fairly similar package for either at a similar price. I quite like the contemporary look of the Burdigala, but the Grand Hotel seems quite iconic and I love the fact that they have a spa that we could use. Any advice?

      Lastly, any other recommendations to make our 48 hours even more special?

      Chateaux tour by bike

      by JohanIsWeg Online Now Mar 30, 2015 at 2:29 AM

      Bonjour!
      Was wondering if someone could advise on the protocol surrounding chateaux visits by bicycle? We would like to spend one day cycling in either Pauillac or Saint-Émilion, perhaps visiting Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Gruaud-Larose and Château Lynch-Bages, or Château Figeac, Château Troplong Mondot and Château de Pressac.
      Not sure what the dress code is when visiting these Chateau... Will they perceive it as disrespectful when arriving on a bicycle and dressed in jeans and short-sleeved shirt?
      Any feedback would be highly appreciated!
      Merci!

I am thinking of going to Bordeaux and/or Toulouse but would also like to visit a couple of villages that are not too far away and accessible by bus or train (preferably train) as I won't have a car. Any suggestions re accommodation and attractions not-to-be-missed would also be appreciated.

      I will be in Bordeaux for 3 days and wine is one of my top priorites. I have a few questions as i havent yet read anything about the wine tasting procedure there. I know that there are crazily expensive half day tours in Chateaux, but I wonder if this can be done low cost and independently. WHich chateaux would you recommend? Pommerol, St Emilion, Medoc where/? Do we have to book in advance or just show up? My trip will be in June, i suppose hi season...
      One more question: could you indicate the highlights of the Dordogne itinerary from Sarlat la Caneda to Bordeaux?

      Hi, we are thinking about staying somewhere in or near a vineyard, anyone has good experience to share? Ideally it is easily accessible from/to Bordeaux airport and convenient in getting in and out of Bordeaux city for a day trip.

      Alternatively if we stay in Bordeaux city itself, any recommendation on which vineyard are open to public that we should visit?.

      Thanks and regards!

      Short stop in Bordeaux

      by SandiM Online Now Jan 22, 2014 at 6:53 PM

      I am coming from Paris on my way to Sarlat and have chosen to spend 3 hours in Bordeaux (i know, it's clearly not enough time). I will step off the train at St Jean station and want to shop for food (chocolate! or other sweets! And small bottles of wine for souvenirs!) and after want to snap a few scenic photos of prominent features of Bordeaux. I will need to make use of public transport or taxis, so I don't think I can take a tour (not in 3 hours anyway). What can you suggest to spend my time wisely enough?

      Satying just outside (20km) of Bordeaux for 5 days in June. We have a hire car to get round as we are travelling with our one year old and my Mum. The plan is to visit some vineyards and local town like St. Emillion. We do plan to drive into Bordeaux for a day and also perhaps one evening for dinner. Question is parking, I'm sure plenty of you have parked in Bordeaux so I'm looking for most convenient place close enough to the city centre. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
