Bordeaux, as a city, is an important port, a cultural hub, a centre for foodies and a destination which offers various types of accommodation. Capital of the Aquitaine region and located in the Gironde département, Bordeaux sits on a bend of the River Garonne, before the Garonne meets the Gironde estuary and finally the Atlantic.
In 2007, the city and its elegant streets – adorned with 18th-century buildings – were declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the city has also been classified as a ‘City of Art and History’. The atmosphere is vibrant, the architecture stunning and there’s fantastic shopping, but it’s also a city with a relaxed pace of life.
