Plan Your Trip

Why plan a luxury holiday to Bordeaux and the Dordogne?

One of the most scenic areas in France, Bordeaux is a region of ancient chateaux, sweeping vineyards and rolling fields and meadows. Beyond Bordeaux is the Atlantic coast where you can sample some of the best seafood in the country and explore the dunes of this beautiful coastline.

You'll find Medoc, a region renowned for its wines, to the north and the famous St-Émilion nearby. It all adds up to a perfect destination for a gourmet break, a visit to carefully selected vineyards, or a starting point to explore the magic of Dordogne.

While the scenery is majestic, there is further appeal in the area's rich, well-preserved history. Dordogne boasts an incredible 1,500 castles, a wealth of churches, fabulous architecture and many other historical points of interest.

On a luxury holiday to Dordogne, you can experience the honey-coloured medieval towns, villages and châteaus of the Périgord in all their glory. This is a unique region, from the vineyards of Bergerac and St-Émilion to Périgueux, with its markets full of truffle stalls, through to the tiny villages of Sarlat, Brantôme and Trémolat.

Bordeaux and the Dordogne FAQs

  • How long can I go on a luxury holiday to Bordeaux and Dordogne?

    We're happy to make your getaway as short or long as fits your vision. We offer holidays to Bordeaux and Dordogne of between five and 20 nights, and these trips often include trips to other locations in France.

    We want all our customers to have an unforgettable, unique-to-you experience, so we will work with you to plan a holiday of a lifetime that meets your desires.

  • When is the best time to visit Bordeaux and Dordogne?

    France is worth a visit any time of the year, but to experience this region in all of its glory, we would advise visiting through April and October.

    Visiting through the spring and summer months will bring with it the opportunity to marvel at the rolling countryside in full bloom, awash with beautiful flora. The summer months have the warmest temperatures, with the average peaking at around 27°C in July. So, if you prefer it cooler, spring (or autumn) is best even if you catch the occasional April shower.

  • Can I visit other parts of France on the same trip?

    As all of our holidays are bespoke, the world is your oyster when it comes to deciding where you want to go.

    While we already offer crafted itineraries that combine multiple destinations in France, your trip is customisable and we will work with you to plan your perfect holiday.

    Should you choose to, you could combine your holiday to Bordeaux and Dordogne with trips to other fantastic destinations in France such as Monaco, Paris, and Champagne.
