ROADTRIP IN 
THE SOUTHWEST OF FRANCE

SHARED BY CAROLINE

15 NIGHTS/6 STOPS

South West of France: from the Bordeaux wine region to the fishermen’s huts of Arcachon bay and the folkloric Basque town of St Jean de Luz.

 

We love our region because it hosts a multitude of moods and atmosphere. Depending on your mood, you can discover various activities, foods and landscapes since everything is easily accessible in a few hours. You could go from visiting a dynamic city like Bordeaux during the day to finding yourself eating oysters in a fisherman’s in the evening as well as tasting a Bordeaux wine. In the region you can discover many wine cellars and its castle. Bordeaux, which has earned its name as “little Paris” in recent years, never ceases to offer unique experiences to its visitors. Moreover, the region surrounding the city offers an incredible quality of life at the seaside and succulent local cuisine. The winemaking history is rich, and the history of wine is rooted and omnipresent in the everyday life of its inhabitants. All of these ingredients give a unique “feel good” vibe to the region. Our budget for the whole trip was around $ 2000 per person for 15 nights (excluded food and activities).
