London to Bordeaux train link - combine a trip to the city and the countryside!

Bethan Posted on 16th February 2017 by Bethan

The phrase "Bordeaux countryside" conjures up images of hazy summer days wandering blissfully through the local vineyards, of chateaux and gîtes nestled among long grass, of long evening meals enjoyed al fresco and an overall feeling that life is good. Cheers to that! That such a seemingly modest phrase can be so suggestive, so loaded with memories and images of all that is good about summer in France says a lot - the Bordeaux region epitomises the good life in France! Perhaps at one stage it seemed a little dusty (aren't all the best wines?!), but with the recent completion of the striking Cité du Vin on the banks of the Garonne river and the new train link between Paris and Bordeaux, it's safe to say that Bordeaux is now a firm favourite and one of Lonely Planet's top 10 World Cities to visit in 2017. The modern and the charmingly quaint combine seamlessly and make for a truly unique holiday experience.

Now it's even easier to book your London to Bordeaux train, you can leave the car behind and combine a city break in this lively and culture-filled city with some time to relax in the countryside - blissful!
