We are planning a river cruise in the Box rivers and then driving back to Paris/CDG over 4-5 days. We're not yet sure what that route will be but possibly the Loire Valley, Mont Saint-Michel or ??? We have a choice of the beginning the cruise 6/4/17 or 10/8/17. Could we get your opinions on what would be the more enjoyable timing?rdeau
Planning to visit Bordeaux in November. Would like to book a wine tasting tour. Have checked the ones provided on the website - unfortunately there is no public transport connection with those zones. Do you know any more places when wine tasting can be experienced? Or there is no chance to taste Bordeaux wine without a car? :)
I will be in Bordeaux on Euro match day in june, and want to take some river tour in the evening with my daughter (5y) while male part of the family attend the game.

Hello - I have been googling around - planning a little circuit in July around the Loire region, plus a look at Bordeaux - and I like to plan according to concerts and other cultural events. So far I have not found a lot and I cannot believe that so little is happening then. Can anyone suggest a/some website(s)? Thanks, Jean
Hello, I need to go on a sunday afternoon from Gare Saint-Jean in Bordeaux to Le Haillan and back. Waiting time in Le Haillan about 1 hour. Anyone knows how much it would cost and can suggest a company?
I'm planning a weekend (from Friday night to Sunday night) in May.
One of the things I'd definitely want to do is a Wine Tour. St Emilion seems to the most recommended choice both in terms of quality of wines and scenery. Now the main question would be whether it'd be worth doing a 1 day tour or just an afternoon one. What would you recommend? Also, small group or private?
As far as the hotel is concerned, I have short listed the Grand Hotel and the Burdigala. I would get a fairly similar package for either at a similar price. I quite like the contemporary look of the Burdigala, but the Grand Hotel seems quite iconic and I love the fact that they have a spa that we could use. Any advice?
Lastly, any other recommendations to make our 48 hours even more special?
Was wondering if someone could advise on the protocol surrounding chateaux visits by bicycle? We would like to spend one day cycling in either Pauillac or Saint-Émilion, perhaps visiting Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Gruaud-Larose and Château Lynch-Bages, or Château Figeac, Château Troplong Mondot and Château de Pressac.
Not sure what the dress code is when visiting these Chateau... Will they perceive it as disrespectful when arriving on a bicycle and dressed in jeans and short-sleeved shirt?
Any feedback would be highly appreciated!
I have four or five days I want to spend in south-west France next May. I am thinking of going to Bordeaux and/or Toulouse but would also like to visit a couple of villages that are not too far away and accessible by bus or train (preferably train) as I won't have a car. Any suggestions re accommodation and attractions not-to-be-missed would also be appreciated.
I am considering arrived boat cruise but am not finding sufficient weather info. Would harvest time still be occurring by October 24th and the following week? What would the weather generally be like? Would May be better?
Is there any way we can secure a guide or car for a day to tour the area wineries at a reasonable cost? The ship has one held for ransom with what they charge!
Where can one find a store that sells alcoholic beverages other than wines? Specifically, looking to purchase Tanqueray Gin.
Is it possible to buy a ticket that I can use on both trams and buses that covers the time I will be staying there? (five days)
I will be in Bordeaux for 3 days and wine is one of my top priorites. I have a few questions as i havent yet read anything about the wine tasting procedure there. I know that there are crazily expensive half day tours in Chateaux, but I wonder if this can be done low cost and independently. WHich chateaux would you recommend? Pommerol, St Emilion, Medoc where/? Do we have to book in advance or just show up? My trip will be in June, i suppose hi season...
One more question: could you indicate the highlights of the Dordogne itinerary from Sarlat la Caneda to Bordeaux?
I will be travelling into Bordeaux from Cognac and wish to know which is the best place to park that has a tram service into the city. we would like to spend a long day there and eat in the evening so the car park must have late night entry to get my vehicle.
Hi, we are thinking about staying somewhere in or near a vineyard, anyone has good experience to share? Ideally it is easily accessible from/to Bordeaux airport and convenient in getting in and out of Bordeaux city for a day trip.
Alternatively if we stay in Bordeaux city itself, any recommendation on which vineyard are open to public that we should visit?.
Thanks and regards!
I am coming from Paris on my way to Sarlat and have chosen to spend 3 hours in Bordeaux (i know, it's clearly not enough time). I will step off the train at St Jean station and want to shop for food (chocolate! or other sweets! And small bottles of wine for souvenirs!) and after want to snap a few scenic photos of prominent features of Bordeaux. I will need to make use of public transport or taxis, so I don't think I can take a tour (not in 3 hours anyway). What can you suggest to spend my time wisely enough?
I will be in Bordeaux tomorrow and I really want to know what I can check out in and around the Sud-Pessac region since my hotel is located there.
After a cruise we will be flying from Madrid to Bordeaux, then will have 14days before flying out of Toulouse. We are 70 ish and like the smaller towns. Any help for how to adventure between Bordeaux and Toulouse in 14 days...we can lease a car. This will occur in early May 6th....2014.
Merci pour information
