About Bordeaux, south of France

Bordeaux itself is most famous for wine production. It's 18th century buildings and the football club, of course. It’s certainly got a lot to offer and was voted Europe’s best destination in 2015.

It’s a great place to start a trip but if you are renting your campervan from us you are probably itching to get on the road and head in one direction or another.

From our Frontenac base, you could head east towards Bergerac a charming medieval town on the Dordogne river and famous for its vineyards and wine rooms. Another popular area is the Médoc region known for its wine growing and production this beautiful area is situated on the left bank of the Gironde estuary.

Head up north into Cognac country and why not stop off at Saine Emillion on route, there’s good wine everywhere in this part of France - drive towards the coast where we suggest you try Royan, Rochefort and the bustling town of La Rochelle.
