Bordeaux Wine Routes

On the Bordeaux wine route, you can either stay in the historic town centre and explore the bars and terraces, or in the Chartrons, in the historic heart of the wine district and a short walk away from the Cité du vin.

As part of this tour you will visit three Grand Cru Classé estates: Château Tour Carnet (Médoc), Château Fombrauge (St-Emilion) and Château Pape Clément (Pessac Léognan).

Hotel Information (Hotel des Quinconces, Bordeaux)

The Hôtel des Quinconces, is a luxury 5-star boutique hotel located in the city centre and is the former United States Consulate, a historical monument from the 19th century. Completely renovated, the Hôtel des Quinconces retains the charm of the neoclassical architecture of its time. The hotel is situated close to the Jardin Public, the Esplanade des Quinconces, the Golden Triangle and its Marché des Grands Hommes or the Place de la Comédie where the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux is held. This is the favourite neighbourhood for travellers visiting Bordeaux, according to independent guest reviews. You can stroll in the shade of hundred-year-old trees, stroll in chic boutiques or visit various historical monuments as you wish. At the end of a garden cut off from the world, you will discover the 19th-century pavilion in which one of the smallest Bordeaux salons is hidden. This atypical space is the perfect place for a moment in complete privacy, far from the noise of the city, just like the Zen Garden, where the Bonsai’s Trees occupy a privileged place.
