Charente nr Cognac, Angouleme Bordeaux Poitou-Charentes - 3 Bedroom House to rent Sleeps 8 - Rent from 500 Euros week

Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Bordeaux, France.

When most people think of Bordeaux, they think of the red wine that has made the region famous. However, there is much more to Bordeaux than just vineyards and good quality St Emilion. The city itself has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its architectural and historical importance, and while a wine tour or tasting is an essential part of visiting the area, tourists shouldn't ignore the attractions within the town centre either.

Visitors to Bordeaux are spoiled for choice when it come to fine architecture, art and culture. Some of the main historical highlights include the town's Grand Theatre, with its gold leaf panelling and painted frescoes, and still holds musical and theatrical performances today. The Palais Rohan was built in the 18th century, and is home to some fine works of art as well as pleasant gardens. The Jardin Public is another place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. A mix of woods and untamed wildlife and laid-out gardens, the Jardin is also home to the city's Museum of Natural History.

Bordeaux is home to several museums, mainly art galleries featuring classic works from the past and more contemporary pieces. The Musee d'Aquitaine tells visitors about the history of Bordeaux and the Aquitaine region, featuring archaeological artefacts and interactive exhibits.

Of course, no visit to Bordeaux would be complete without sampling some of the local wine, whether in one of the city's fine restaurants or on a tour of the local vineyards. The tourist office and some private companies arrange tours of the more famous caves, such as St Emilion, from the city, so that no one has to be the designated driver and everyone can enjoy the tasting part of the visit. There are also events held within Bordeaux itself, including wine festivals throughout the year. A more unseal way to explore the Bordeaux wine country is by taking a barge trip along the Gironde estuary. You can enjoy the scenery as you travel, and many of these trips offer wine tasting on board.

Another popular watery excursion is the short trip across the bay to the Cordouan lighthouse, built in the 16th century and nicknamed the “Versailles of the sea” for its extravagant architecture. Standing at over 60 metres in height, the climb is worth it for the great view of the city and the Aquitaine coastline below. There is also a nearby museum about lighthouses and the history of the sea in this region of France.
