We went this summer
Had a great time
Hired a car and stayed in the medoc, Margaux to be exact. Moulin de margaux it’s on booking.com
We self arranged visits at chateau beychevelle, Pichon baron and siran without too much difficulty! All worth a visit! Can book via website. Tours in English. Got to try few wines at each and not expensive.
Pauillac quai is a good spot for lunch
Would recommend trying to go to a rugby game at Bordeaux begles it was a great experience.
We went to beach at lacnau Plage which we liked, great beach and kind of surfy cool think Cornwall on the medoc.
Found Cité du vin a bit overhyped to be honest
Great architecture and worth a visit but the actual content wasn’t revelatory and all a bit well, french. Strange cartoons, difficult to explain!
We used the equivalent of Boris bikes which were a great way to get around
There’s also a central wine shop I can’t Remember name name of which has an amazing spiral staircase with escalating vintages. That needs a visit!!! Great
