Known for a long time as "Sleeping Beauty", Bordeaux has become a fashionable destination thanks to the renovation of its historic centre and docks. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site since 2007, the Port de la Lune is a model for urban renovation. Place des Quinconces, Place Saint-Pierre, the Grand Théâtre or the stunning façades of the Chartrons are worth the trip, before heading on to taste some fine wines in the region’s vineyards (Saint-Emilion, Médoc, Sauterne, etc.). However, Bordeaux, regularly listed among the most pleasant cities to live with proximity to Arcachon and Cap Ferret, also remains a thriving business destination with the presence of large companies, particularly in the aerospace and food-processing sectors.

Bordeaux-Mérignac (BOD) Airport’s runways are located 10 kilometres to the west of the city. It is possible to reach the centre by taxi quickly via the ring road, except during peak times when the traffic is very congested. The other option is to take the Jet Bus, a comfortable shuttle which will take you to the heart of the Aquitaine capital, as far as Saint-Jean railway station, in half an hour for 7 euros (12 euros for a round trip), with departures every 45 minutes. Economical and convenient.
