Day trips from Bordeaux?

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband, 5 year old son and I will be in Bordeaux for 8 nights in June visiting family. We have a car and want to do some day trips (just my husband, son & I).

Any suggestions on:
1) Beaches/coastal towns? We will definitely go to Biarritz one day...maybe Bayonne.
2) Area North of Bordeaux?

We would like 1-2 beach days (we were told it is hot in June) and 1-2 villages/small towns. I think the most we would want to drive total in one day is 3 hours (1.5 hrs one way, 1.5 hrs return).

I will mention we visited our family in Bordeaux over New Years and were able to go to St Emilion. Everything there was closed, so we will definitely venture back for a day during this trip. We also got to see quite a bit of the city of Bordeaux. This time we'd like to venture out of Bordeux and see the surrounding areas.

We enjoy beaches, small villages, markets, good food, shopping, etc. We also enjoy pictureque drives.

Any suggestions would be helpful...Thank you!

PS - Our son is a good traveler and well behaved - maybe not by French standards, but well enough behaved for us... =) He went everywhere will us in Paris and Bordeaux, including fine dining restaurants & museums. So don't hold back on recommendations!
