Bordeaux, Vineyards & Châteaux

Discover the unparalleled riches of Aquitaine and its charming capital city, Bordeaux.
 
Though settled by the Romans and formerly ruled by the English, Aquitaine is profoundly French. From its noble châteaux to its breathtaking estuary, Bordeaux (as the region is also known) is an oenophile’s paradise and every traveler’s dream. You’ll sail three stunning rivers—the Garonne, the Dordogne, and the Gironde—on one amazing journey, all aboard your elegant floating hotel.

Savour the unique heritage of southwest France, from delightful Pauillac, the gateway to the storied Médoc wine route, to elegant Bordeaux, the “Pearl of the Aquitaine.” Discover limestone cliffs and picturesque hamlets on the Route de la Corniche Fleurie. Explore Saint-Émilion’s astonishing 12th-century Monolithic Church, and enjoy the beautiful Médoc vineyards from the seat of a bicycle.

Throughout your journey, you’ll be treated to a sumptuous display of culinary magic. Taste regional delights, including duck confit, caviar d’Aquitaine, and oysters. And delve deeply into the Bordeaux region’s exalted wines. You’ll taste lovely Médoc vintages; visit the cellars of Premier Grand Cru in Saint-Émilion, where you’ll savor the world’s most highly rated wines; and embark upon a study of Sauternes (this region’s sweet vin), meeting the winemakers and enjoying a wine-pairing lunch at Châteaux d’Arche.

With great food and wine; the charming towns of Bergerac, Saint-Émilion, and Bordeaux; and ample time to take in the breathtaking scenery, you´ll discover the douceur de vivre (sweet life) this region is known for.
