Rent the best campervans and motorhomes in Bordeaux
The area around Bordeaux is world famous for the many wine estates it hosts. Each year, this rich heritage gives rise to events such as the Spring Wine Festival, the Grand Cru Weekend and the "Bordeaux Fête le Vin". Wine is the pride of the people of Bordeaux, which is why they do not hesitate to celebrate it.
The city also stands out thanks to its architectural heritage. The Place de la Bourse or the Saint-André cathedral where its big bell bears witness to the rich history of the Gironde. The steep streets of the city centre serve as links between the various public squares, each more charming than the last.
The city of Bordeaux is located in the Garonne estuary in the southwest of the country. Bordeaux-Mérignac airport is located 12km west of the city. Ryanair, British Airways and EasyJet are all airlines that offer flights to the wine city. The A10 motorway from the north and the A63 and A62 motorways from the south provide access to the ring road. From the east, you will need to take the N89 national road. Furthermore, the grand Bordeaux Saint-Jean station allows you to reach the city centre by train.
When visiting, it is best to first find a place to park your campervan hire in Bordeaux safely. The Allée de Chartres car park is open between 8 am and 8 pm for around £13/€15 per day. In addition, the 24-hour Bord'eaux Village car park on the banks of the Garonne charges £22/€26 per day. Outside the city, the OnePark at Bordeaux Loake or the Zenpark in Mérignac offers more affordable prices. However, you will need to use public transport to get to the city centre.
Renting a campervan in Bordeaux means reserving pitches for a peaceful night's sleep.
