With a long history of producing regional wines since the Romans brought grapevines here during the first century, so many people consider Bordeaux to be the wine capital of the world.
Bring the kids along to Lac de Lougratte and Parc de la Coccinelle. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Chateau Fort de Saint Jean d'Angle and Amphitheatre de Saintes. Get out of town with these interesting Bordeaux side-trips: Ecomuseum Marquèze (in Sabres), Le Phare du Cap Ferret (in Cap-Ferret) and Ecuries Olivier Bauer (in Saint-Paul-en-Born). Dedicate the 18th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of La ville d'Hiver, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedrale St-Front, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Sainte-Radegonde de Talmont, and stroll through Eglise monolithe Saint-Jean.
