New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

As the unofficial wine capital of the world, Bordeaux is a haven for connoisseurs looking to sample the best of the region’s produce. However, this grand, historic city on the banks of the Garonne offers a lot more than merely a great glass of vino. In addition to boasting a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a historic centre, owing to its wonderful collection of historic architecture and monuments, the city is home to roughly 300,000 acres of vineyards.

The Bordeaux region creates an annual production of 960 million bottles of wine - visit the La Cité du Vin wine museum to explore exhibitions on wine culture and production, before retreating to one of the city’s wine bars to taste the good stuff. Those intent on unearthing the wonders of French art should head to either the Musée des Beaux Arts or the CAPC Museum of Contemporary Art in the city, before stopping at the Gothic Basilica of St. Michael to admire the view from the bell tower. For an alternative look at the city, set off on a cruise along the Garonne, sailing past local vineyards and city sights such as the Place de la Bourse. To experience the slow Gironde life, take the short train journey to nearby St Emilion, another medieval UNESCO World Heritage town that promises alluring streets and enough surrounding wineries to convert even the most ambivalent wine-drinker!

Bordeaux Christmas Markets 2019 (Late November - Late December)

Each year, Bordeaux's Allées de Tourny is transformed into a magical winter wonderland of little wooden huts and overladen stalls. Peruse over 160 stalls for artisan gifts, treat yourself to traditional sugared almonds, and warm up with Vin Chaud as the trees around you shimmer with lights and snow alike.

Starting towards the end of November, this is the largest Christmas market in the city. Jam-packed with traditional sellers of French produce including cheese, macarons and of course, wine, here, you can buy beautiful gifts for loved ones back home including wheat-filled teddies that can be heated up in the microwave. Wander through the market and be blown away by the intricate details of twinkling lights which are 100% LED - as part of the city's ecological commitments. 

Hotel Le Palais Gallien 5*

The Hotel Le Palais Gallien 5* is a characterful retreat that plunges its guests into an elegant journey through time, where luxury and prestige are found in every detail. Browse the three buildings of the hotel, "Les 3 M", in honor of the three emblematic philosophers and writers of Bordeaux, Montaigne, Montesquieu and Mauriac, and unearth centuries of fascinating history, juxtaposed against contemporary design and sleek furniture. From its exquisitely furnished rooms to its inescapable gourmet restaurant, glamorous cocktail bar and indulgent outdoor pool, this hotel provides an exceptional setting for your Bordeaux getaway.
