Bordeaux Bordeaux (round trip)<

Day 1 - Bordeaux

There is no better place on earth to combine culture and wine than Bordeaux. The city is home to several outstanding sites devoted to this beverage, such as the Cité du Vin and its fantastic view over the city and the Chartrons district, home to the Museum of Wine and the Wine industry. Other iconic sites include the majestic Saint André Cathedral (11C), Place de la Bourse on the river and Porte Cailhau.

MyTripTailor tip: Bordeaux’ docklands are also ideal to taste local oysters and white wines (sauternes, sauvignon).

Day 2 - surroundings of St-Macaire

Quinsac, Langoiran, Rions, Cadillac, Loupiac, Verdelais, Saint-Macaire, Sainte-Croix-du-Mont: your trip down the right bank of the Garonne will take through the Premières-côtes-de-bordeaux appellation region. This scenic drive features fine points of view and prestigious wine-growing estates such as those of Langoiran, Reynan, Budos and La Brède. As night falls, we recommend spending the night in the heart of the vineyards around Saint Macaire.

MyTripTailor tip: As you plan your day, save time to stop at Château de Malromé where Toulouse-Lautrec lived for a time.

  • Duration : 0h55

Day 3 - St-Macaire-Bordeaux

If you can’t spend more than a short weekend, you can head straight back to Bordeaux on the scenic return route. If you are less pressed for time, we recommend heading towards Saint-Émilion, some 40km away and exploring the left bank of the Garonne and the vineyards of Graves, Sauternes and Barzac. You could also pop back to the Middle Ages by paying a visit to Château de Roquetaillade, 13km southwest of Saint-Macaire or to the legendary Château d’Yquem, 10km westbound.

  • Distance : 46 km
