Cheap flights to Bordeaux
The beautiful city of Bordeaux offers up a whole host of holiday goodies; the world’s best wine, a romantic city centre, culture by the bucket-load and even family-friendly beach resorts just a short train journey away. If you thought Paris was the only French city worthy of a romantic break, then think again.
Bordeaux, that city famous for its wine is vying for the title of France’s most amorous town. The reason? Well, it could have something to do with its newly revamped Neo-classical centre, its moonlit riverside walks, or its beautifully landscaped parks. One thing’s for sure, it won’t be long before you’re falling in love with Bordeaux and all its charms.
Recent renovations have seen the place transformed into a city full of warehouse-converted bars and restaurants, and pedestrianised squares brimming with cafes and buzzing with life.
Indulge in some dancing along the banks of the Garonne in the evenings from 16 July until 17 August. Enjoy free demonstrations by ballroom, salsa and rock and swing experts, plus outdoor workshops.
Catch the third edition of the Bordeaux Independent Film Festival on 7-12 October. Films will be shown at cinemas throughout the city and ticket holders are also welcome at the headquarters in Cours Mably for free happy hour and concerts. fifib.com
Don't miss the Christmas market on Allées de Tourny, where, from late November, you can taste your way through seasonal delights such as raclette cheese sandwiches and spiced wine and peruse the timber stalls with their leather goods, toys, food and trinkets, all illuminated by the city lights. uk.rendezvousenfrance.com
