Bordeaux is often called France’s greatest city. Quite simply, it has everything that makes you fall head over heels in love with France. Great wine – surrounded by some of the world’s best vineyards. Great restaurants – it has become serious competition for Lyon, known as the gastronomic capital of France. UNESCO listed architecture, not far from the sea, museums galore, wall to wall sunshine, fabulous shopping, historic buildings. In short, it’s not far from the perfect French city. In fact Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain called it “the very essence of elegance” the last time she visited.

On this autumn tour, you’ll stay in gorgeous hotels, indulge at the best restaurants and see the most magnificent sights.

Okay – we said it doesn’t get much better than a chateau in Saint-Emilion – except when the next part of the tour takes you to Eugenie les Bains. This is one of the most magical places in south west France, if not all of France. Taking the waters here has been popular since Roman times and nesting in the town is a most beautiful hotel and spa.
