Tour of the UNESCO sites in Gironde : Bordeaux, Saint Emilion, Blaye

3 Days

2 Nights

Il est une chose acquise depuis bien longtemps : Bordeaux est la capitale mondiale du vin. Mais la ville est également, depuis 2007, classée au patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco (Organisation des Nations unies pour l'éducation, la science et la culture).

Une distinction que la belle endormie partage avec deux autres sites girondins remarquables : le vignoble de Saint- Emilion et la citadelle de Blaye. Des joyaux à découvrir le temps d’un séjour court.

Tour of the UNESCO sites in Gironde : Bordeaux, Saint Emilion, Blaye

  • Day 1
  • Day 2
  • Day 3


In 2007, after the redevelopment of the quays and the renovation of its facades, Bordeaux earned its UNESCO World Heritage Site listing. And it did not stop there. In 2009, it was awarded the status of a City of Art and History. And in 2015, it won the coveted title of best European destination of the year!

Enough to make you want to explore every nook and cranny with your City Pass, a passport that will open the doors of many museums, monuments and public transport.

Finally, the dinner cruise will take you on the Garonne River: the best viewpoint to admire the city. For the night, we have selected a 4-star hotel for you, located in the historic heart of Bordeaux, with decor largely inspired by 18th century life.

Saint Emilion

Saint-Emilion can compete with Bordeaux on an even footing. Every year, thousands of visitors succumb to the charm of the sloped landscapes of its wine region, and the cobbled streets and sunny squares of the medieval town.

And the wine needs no introduction... The names Ausone, Cheval Blanc or Angelus are enough to understand the prestige of the AOC (protected designation of origin). But Saint-Emilion is also about macaroons, the history of the monk Emilion, a unique monolithic church and miles of underground galleries where the wines of the appellation’s many wine estates, from the most modest to the most famous, lie aging.

For this stopover, you will stay in a charming guest house located in the town, a few metres from Porte Brunet, a private place offering a unique and wildly romantic view over the vineyard.


Bourg and Blaye

The third and last day of this getaway will be dedicated to architecture. A first stop will take you to discover the charming village of Bourg in Gironde. Due to its strategic location at the confluence of the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, many members of royalty resided there, including Edward I and Louis XIV.

Continuing your journey, you will then follow the Gironde Estuary on the colourful Route de la Corniche Fleurie, before reaching Blaye and its majestic citadel, the centrepiece of the “estuary lock” designed by Vauban and listed since 2008 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lunch at the Auberge des Officiers will plunge you into the atmosphere before a guided tour of the citadel and discovery of the estuary lock, either by returning to the Médoc shore by ferry, or by listening to the guided visit on a river trip.

So will end this break devoted to the Gironde UNESCO sites, event-packed and yet a little short to enjoy all the riches that the region still has to offer !
