Arriving at Bordeaux Airport
Your flight will land at Bordeaux-Mérignac. As its name suggests, this airport is located in Mérignac, 12 kilometres from the centre of Bordeaux. You can get there quickly using:
- The bus: two options are available. Firstly, the 30Direct shuttle travels directly from the airport to Saint-Jean station, taking 30 minutes. There is at least one departure every hour, from 08:30 to 20:30 during the week, from 08:45 to 18:00 on Saturdays, and from 09:30 to 20:30 on Sundays. Alternatively, the Liane 1+ makes the same journey (in around 50 minutes), but with several stops in the city. There is one departure every 10 to 15 minutes, from Monday to Sunday, between 05:00 and 00:30.
- A taxi: available on the way out of the terminals.
- A hire car: around 10 car rental companies can be found in the area connecting Terminals A and B.
What to do in
Bordeaux doesn’t seem to suit its nickname: the Sleeping Beauty. As France’s leading city in terms of the number of companies created, and with the Rafale final assembly site and the CDiscount headquarters, the capital of Aquitaine is anything but sleepy. So why this nickname? Because Bordeaux is second only to Paris for the number of listed, protected monuments. And yet it is a vibrant city! Bordeaux isn’t happy just to have a glorious past. The city is moving forwards towards an equally glorious future, constantly enriching its heritage with innovations. This means it is not only the gateway to a magnificent region, but also its most wonderful asset.
Holidays as a family or as a foodie?See more See less
They say that travel broadens the mind. And they’re right! That gives you the perfect excuse for a family holiday discovering the region where French philosopher Montaigne was born. There’s plenty for young and old to enjoy, with events and activities to help your child develop a taste for nature and discovery. Street art, a skate park in an urban wasteland, scientific experiences and exhibitions, enjoying a gigantic public garden or the banks of the Garonne, surfing on the ocean waves or kayaking in the Arcachon Bay: the region promises a holiday packed with fun.
However, Bordeaux has one gem that even the most loving parents won’t want to share with their kids: its wines! If you are on holiday with a partner or friends, you will love strolling through the vineyards, your mouth watering at the mere mention of their produce: Saint-Estèphe, Médoc, Sauternes, Pessac Léognan, Margaux, Pauillac… As evening comes, with these flavours still lingering in your mouth, head back to the capital of Gironde for a taste of culture. The Museum of Contemporary Art of Bordeaux, the Grand Théâtre (a stronghold of Bel Canto), and the Théâtre National de Bordeaux en Aquitaine showcase both original creations and timeless masterpieces. “A healthy mind in a healthy body,” as Montaigne said!

- Give in to the temptation of a selfie in front of the Miroir d’eau, a giant reflecting pool. This vast expanse of granite beneath a thin layer of water reflects the Place de la Bourse. A magical sight!
- Stroll along the banks of the Garonne, to enjoy the waterfront: rides, cafés and designer outlets offering great discounts.
- Wander around Old Bordeaux to discover France’s most beautiful architectural heritage after Paris. Linger a while in the Saint-Pierre area: the perfect place to relax together with a glass of wine.

In spring, take your time strolling through the old town and along the banks of the Garonne. In summer, head to the coast for sun and sea, rest and relaxation on the vast expanses of sandy beaches. Autumn is great for exploring the vineyards, tasting their wines, and admiring the vines, which at this time of year take on the colours of gold, copper and… wine!
