I lived in Bordeaux for 6 months while studying abroad. If you are a cheese lover, cheese paradise awaits you at Baud et Millet. They have a cellar room full of cheese but they also offer delicious cold cuts and a great selection of wine. You should go hungry as you can opt for the all-you-can-eat menu. In my opinion, pure heaven.

I am originally from Bordeaux, and I think one of the nicest things you can do is go explore the vineyards. The village of Saint Emilion is really cute and picturesque, and it is worth spending a day there. If you want to see small family owned wineries and real countryside, you can come to Fronsac, Gironde (where my family's winery is). It is called the Little Tuscany of France because it is very hilly with beautiful landscapes.

Another great thing to do is walk around the old areas of Bordeaux. There are lots of small streets and old buildings and you can take an entire day looking at it.

If you like spas, you can go to Caudalie in the Medoc, a spa where everything comes from the vineyard. It is a little pricey though.

One hour drive from Bordeaux is the Cap Ferret, where everyone from Bordeaux goes on vacation! There you can find small oyster farms and beautiful beaches.

Finally make sure to try the Canele de Bordeaux, a little pastry that originates from there.

If you go for a day trip at La Dune Du Pyla, you should have lunch at Hôtel-Restaurant-La Co(o)rniche or even spend the night there if you can. Best view in the area. A nice little wine bar in central Bordeaux is Wine & Soul where you'll be able to taste wines by the knowledgeable owner can help if needed. He will let you try wines by the glass that no many others will.
