Bordeaux

Begin by enjoying the celebratory atmosphere on the Bordeaux quays. Embark for a lunch cruise on the Garonne River. The view from the boat will give you a full appreciation of the River Festival, while tasting regional cuisine.

In addition to the boat trip, a bus tour of the city will give you an overview of the largest collection of buildings listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Then you can wander around on foot as you please in the old quarter. You will be made to feel welcome at the starred hotel, located in a quiet street a stone's throw from the celebrations, in a setting characterised by charm and authenticity.

 

Bordeaux

Watch the spectacular start of the Solitaire du Figaro sailing race in the Bordeaux-Pauillac prologue.

For lunch, we suggest you enjoy a meal on a terrace on the quays, before leaving yourself free time to go shopping or visit the city's monuments and museums.

Save some energy for the evening’s celebrations with a magnificent firework display which you can watch from the quays. Spend the night in the same hotel.

 


Arcachon

To end your break with a river and boat theme, we suggest you explore the Bay of Arcachon and its breath-taking seascapes.

You will embark on a gourmet food cruise to the most beautiful sites in the bay: Île aux Oiseaux, the cabanes tchanquées (huts on stilts), etc.

To end the adventure, take the time to follow the Cornice road to enjoy the incredible views offered by Pilat Dune, with a reputation as the highest in Europe.
