Only 40 minutes from Yelloh! Village Saint Emilion, Bordeaux was recently voted France's most beautiful town and is certainly worth a trip. Enjoy a stroll down the quaysides, past the walls of the fine buildings, then branch off to the more highly-populated area of Saint-Michel, which is where you'll find the very soul of Bordeaux, before enjoying a bit of time in one of the city's parks.
The "water mirror", visually spectacular and adored by children, adds the perfect finishing touch to the Place de la Bourse, just a step away from the emblematic Grand Théatre whose cultural light has shone over the historic town centre for more than three centuries!
