Near Bordeaux - Day Trips and 1 Overnighter

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm traveling to France in May with my husband and son (5 y.o.). This is our itinerary:
-US to Paris
-drive to Angles-sur-l'Anglin - 1 night (and visit nearby St Savin)
-drive to Bordeaux - 11 nights
-Paris - 3 nights

Planned day trips from Bordeaux:
-Brantome - visit abbey & nearby Grotte de Villars
-Chateau Roquetaillade
-Phare de Cordouan

We'll be staying with family in Bordeaux for 11 nights so we hope to do 4-5 day trips. Any other suggestions?

Also, any thoughts on where we should stay for 1 night (max 2-3 hour drive from Bordeaux)? Someplace that is lively at night (not too remote) where we could walk around in the evening for dinner, etc. This overnight trip will be late June on a Tuesday or Wednesday night.

DISCLAIMER - We've been to Bordeaux 3 times over the past few years and we love it...good food, wine, etc. But we also enjoy exploring surrounding areas - like Arcachon & Cap Ferret (thanks StuDudley...my son loved the dune du pylat!), Bordeaux Zoo and St Emilion. Also, we are planning a 2 week trip to the Dordogne / Perigord area plan in June 2013, so we don't want to venture on this trip to far out west to Sarlat or Rocamadour.

THANK YOU :)
