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.
