Where To Stay In Bordeaux
If a “winery tour and wine tasting in Bordeaux” still seems to not complete an experience of Bordeaux then I highly recommend staying at a winery in Bordeaux. You not only get a good pampering but the food is paired with the regional wines that are from the winery Chateaux you are staying at. There are plenty of Bordeaux Chateau Hotels to choose from with elegant rooms with views of the vineyards and all with varying budgets so there is something for everyone. For something closer to the city, check out Bordeaux hotels.
