Looking for a Bordeaux property guide? Here are three property hotspots in and around Bordeaux that offer smart and stable real estate investment opportunities.
Last year Bordeaux was voted the Best European Destination, beating other cities in Europe such as Brussels, Rome and Madrid. Made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007, Bordeaux’s historic and cultural roots are as strong as those of its world-class vines, which make it such a legendary winegrowing region.
But the city’s charms don’t stop there. Bordeaux and its surrounding areas are also home to some of the most picturesque countryside in France and it is a hub for wine and gastronomy just as much as it is for technology and entrepreneurs. The modern transport systems and thriving local economy make it a top consideration for families considering a permanent move, as well as those looking for a second home in a city that offers relaxing summer holidays as well as a unique city lifestyle.
Bordeaux’s location means that summers can be spent on the Côte d’Argent, which runs for 200km along Gironde’s Atlantic coastline, visiting popular destinations such as the Dune du Pilat, the tallest sand dune in Europe, the Bay of Arcachon and Andernos-les-Bains.
