Bonjour, Bordeaux!


Bye, you guys. I'm heading off to Bordeaux on an early flight tomorrow morning and I just can't wait. Any last minute tips or recommendations? Leave them in the comments down below, please!

We're spending the first few days in the stunning Les Sources de Caudalie (really hoping this cold I have doesn't get any worse!) before heading into Bordeaux proper and using a gorgeous 18th-century Airbnb apartment as our base.

I'm looking forward to a visit to Saint Emilion and also Europe's largest sand dune. As you do. I'm also curious to explore all the pretty side streets and cafes of Bordeaux. Did I mention wine yet? That too.

I'm hoping to scope it out before bringing my mom and dad back for a family vacation sometime soon.

In the meantime, please visit me on Instagram and follow along on our adventures!

  3. If you're looking for a really good French restaurant head to " Le cochon volant", Santosha is a Thai restaurant in the center of town that's delicious and Plume is one of the cutest brunch/lunch places in Bordeaux!

  7. Ahhh...Bordeaux, we spent a glorious few days there last year. The wine is good! If you are there for the weekend head to the covered market Marche de Capucins. Stroll through the streets and discover the market full to the brim with seafood, fresh produce and character. Go hungry, oysters served with a glass of chilled wine, tapas, macarons, heaven!
