    Bordeaux – France through and through

    Bordeaux might just be the perfect cocktail of all things French. One part easy-going, one part chic, it's rounded off with a dash of culinary flare and some of the top wines in the country. It's also a looker, loaded with grand plazas and neoclassical buildings so opulent they'll make the eyes water. Around its UNESCO core is a ring of hip districts and parks, like bistro-buzzing Chartrons and the serene Jardin Public. Excellent museums – both modern and classic – pop up, too, while Bordeaux holiday rentals on the outskirts can mean daytrips to vineyards or poolside lazing in the foothills of Gascony.

    Bordeaux – a street scene to enthral

    You don't have to take the guide book's word for it – the sheer beauty of Bordeaux's historic heart has garnered it a coveted UNESCO World Heritage tag. Hit the streets that lead from the Place de la Bourse, hopping between chic fashion outlets and wine shops and more. Near Place St-Pierre is where the roads narrow into alleys, with arcades of coffee-clinking cafes and rustic French bistros lining the way. Time for a break? Crack open a bottle of rose and pack a picnic, because the riverside parks that fringe the Garonne are the perfect spot in summer.

    Tipples and art in Bordeaux

    Where to begin – wine or art? Best start with culture, so you can give Rubens' Dutch masterpieces and the Titian paintings of the Musee des Beaux-Arts your full and undivided attention. Same goes for the cutting-edge works at the Musee d'Art Contemporain, housed in a colossal converted industrial warehouse. Then you can hit the tasting rooms and vineyards. The handsome Chateau d'Agassac is a good choice, offering tours of the wine cellars and fermenting rooms plus fine-dining dinners, or the historic Chateau de Pitray, perched above the Dordogne just to the west.

    When Bordeaux beckons

    No matter if it's a cosy inner-city pad or a luxurious Bordeaux holiday rental with a pool you're searching for, it's always going to be in higher demand in the summer months of June, July and August. That's when families flock down to the south of France during the European school breaks, seeking sun, good food and great wine. Alternative times that still have good weather are spring – in May – and autumn – in September. You could even catch the grape harvest if you opt to come later in the year.

    Wine farms and French country around Bordeaux

    Bordeaux straddles the majestic Garonne River as it weaves its way towards the Atlantic coast. Some Bordeaux holiday rentals line the waterway, offering views over the pretty parks and promenades where dog walkers and strollers go by evening. Follow its route inland and you'll come to the heart of the Bordeaux wine region, covering the rolling green hills between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. It's a place of sleepy villages, canals, glowing sunflower fields and pockets of woodland. The other direction means hitting the ocean, where the hulking Dune of Pilat gives way to wave-washed surfer beaches.
