Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
If you’ve got plans to visit Bordeaux, you’re in for a real treat. It has recently shed its slow-paced way of life and has fought hard to become one of the most dynamic and exciting cities in all of France.
Recently the city life completely got revamped in Bordeaux. They restored neoclassical architecture, pedestrianised boulevards and modernised the public transport system in a bid to give the city its new lease of life.
Half of the city is Unesco-listed, making it the largest urban World Heritage site, so you can be sure that there will be no shortage of sites to see once you get from the busy airport to your accommodation.
Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport is situated approximately 12 km from the city and it serves many international and national destinations. In 2015, its three terminals served 5,289,638 passengers and this number has grown with each passing year.
A host of airlines can be found landing here including Ryanair, Iberia, EasyJet, and KLM to name but a few. If you’re flying with any of these airlines – or any others – let the RentABus.com team know and we can arrange for one of our minibuses or coaches to take you straight into the beautiful French city of Bordeaux.
When you hear the name ‘Bordeaux’, what’s the first thing that springs to mind? Wine, of course! The south-western French region is famous all over the world for being a premier producer of exquisite wines.
It is, in fact, the largest region of wine production in the European nation and a perfect place for grape growth due its oceanic climate – well irrigated land with a high level of calcium in the soil.
Reds are mainly produced in Bordeaux, but you will find some gorgeous whites, too. The region is home to the world’s largest, annual wine festival, The Vinexpo, where hordes of wine lovers, producers, and buyers gather to share their love of vino.
If you’re planning on visiting during the next Vinexpo, it takes place June 18th – 21st, 2017. Over 48,000 buyers and 2,350 exhibitors will be in attendance; it’s bound to be a stylish and sophisticated affair so dress up!
Boreaux’s wine culture is also explored in the fantastic new La Cité du Vin, an architectural gem and wine theme park. Here, revellers are taken around by digital guides to learn all about vino. But take it from us here at RentABus.com: you can rent a bus in Bordeaux to take you to the vineyards but there is lot more to this region than just booze!
Bordeaux – like Paris – is made up of ‘arrondissements’ or quarters, each with something unique to offer. RentABus.com can take you around the quarters in sleek style.
St Pierre, the majestic 18th century heart of the city with exquisite architectural gems, superb walkways, and quaint cafes and eateries, is perfect for a spot of people watching.
In Chartrons, located on the banks of the River Garronne smack bang in the metropolis, you’ll find antique stores and eccentric shop owners selling heaps of unique items you won’t find anywhere else, perfect for the bargain hunter in all of us.
Saint Eloi is where you can find Église Catholique Saint-Eloi, a stunning catholic church complete with Gothic architectural features and an overarching bell tower. This district is a hop, skip, and a jump to the city’s biggest shopping street, Rue Sainte Catherine.
Perfect for the sightseer; Saint Michel is, by far, the most vibrant side of town with a multicultural air, due to the huge number of different nationalities living in the area. Sunday and Monday morning markets are not to be missed here.
And for socialites, Victoire, the student hub with Place de la Victoire acting as its thriving square, is great for meeting friends or French lovers!
The station quarter is the district that never sleeps. Whether you arrive day or night, here you’ll find plenty of spots to grab a bite or a drink that are tantalising on the pallet.
With bus, minibus and coach rental offered by RentaBus.com, you can make your way to all of these quarters as well as stopping by Sainte Croix and Grands Hommes too. Our comfy vehicles will take you from Houses of Parliament and grand theatres to sophisticated eateries and trendy shops.
