Where do you go to get away from it all? One of the great escapes for someone living in Bordeaux, or Gironde as a whole, is a trip to the Atlantic Coast. One of my favorite places is Cap Ferret, a peninsula that offers both Atlantic coast beaches and Bassin d'Arcachon shores which are perfect for small children. Granted, during high season it can be a like Saint Tropez in summer...filled with people, cars and boats.
Water to Cool Off During the Gironde Summer
When the sun is too hot you can take a dip in one of these watering holes for a break! Between the sandy beaches on the Atlantic, interior lakes and even old quarries, you'll find someplace near you to escape the heat when visiting Bordeaux and Gironde!
