The Best Hotels in Bordeaux, France

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Bordeaux, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our team to Bordeaux are four ladies who have tested a lot of hotels, restaurants and night-clubs world-wide.

Bordeaux is the world's major wine industry capital – wine has been produced in the region since the 8th century. The historic part of Bordeaux city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as "an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble" of the 18th century.

Today’s Bordeaux is one of the most attractive destination in the world, an attractive and refined city, where art of living and conviviality make sense.

Bordeaux is offering a rich and varied commercial offer around major chains, luxury shops and trends, designers, wines and gastronomy. Bring your credit card and head for the Triangle-d’Or bordered by the Cours de l’Intendance, Allées de Tourny and Cours Clemenceau. Here you’ll find the luxury brand names and big-ticket shops. Bordeaux’s main market hall, Marché des Capucins is situated on Place des Capucins.

Grands Hommes shopping arcade in the middle is an outpost of more reasonable pricing. It also has a daily fruit and veg market.

A lot of affordable shops, fashion or otherwise, are found on or around the Rue Ste Cathérine. Kick off at the Place de la Comédie and carry on until you’ve had enough.

Bordeaux is wine and food. Go to Cave Art & Vins – one of Bordeaux’s finest wine shops that also carries 700 whiskies and a decent range of deli foods. L’Intendant is another cracking wine shop. Most affordable wines are on the ground floor. From there, a spiral walkway rises, along with prices and quality, to the oldest vintages on the fourth floor – it’s said to be 15,000 bottles in all.

Chees is Jean d’Alos, if you haven’t bought your cheese from d’Alos, you haven’t really bought cheese at all. Here you can sample the best French cheeses.

The best place to have the shopping-coffee-break is Chocolaterie Saunion on Cours Clemenceau – maybe the city’s best confectioners and chocolate shop. Good shopping in Bordeaux!
