Where to stay in Bordeaux

Bordeaux is France’s biggest wine region, yet surprisingly its most prestigious part, the Médoc, is also the youngest. It wasn’t until the Dutch drained this flat, gravelly, marsh in the mid-17th century that the merchants of Bordeaux, keen to compete with the burgeoning wine trade between Portugal and Britain (this was the time that port was ‘discovered’), planted vines. History, politics, commerce and engineering have all played their part in shaping the wine that has become synonymous with Bordeaux.
