Bordeaux is a synonym for some of the most famous wines in the world, but it is more than just names of elegant chateaux. The city of Bordeaux itself is jammed with great restaurants and things to see. And surrounding the vibrant centre you have tiny roads and easygoing riding galore.
The Medoc will fulfill your longings for the great chateaux, as well as some surprises, like the Fort of Medoc, or the Abbey of Vertheuil. And if you add UNESCO St Emilion onto your tour, you will love the underground monuments, and tiny cobblestoned streets.
