This week, clients of Bordeaux Excellence from Switzerland have had the chance to discover the Bordeaux region during their cruise on one of the two river boats of the CroisiEurope River Cruise Line. It was an exceptional occasion to enjoy the landscapes of the region from the deck of the boat or even from the balcony!
The MS Cyrano de Bergerac took them to exceptional sites along the Garonne, the Dordogne and the Gironde: Bordeaux, Pauillac, Bourg, Libourne or Cadillac. The passengers from Switzerland have discovered the historical heart of Bordeaux, visited the Médoc region and especially Château Lynch-Bages – Grand Cru Classé Pauillac –. They have also explored Cognac and its castle where the king François 1er was born and that nowadays hosts the ageing cellars of Otard cognacs. Going back-up the Dordogne, the passengers allowed themselves to be taken towards Saint-Emilion where Bordeaux Excellence had organized for them an exclusive tasting at Château de Ferrand – Grand Cru classé de Saint-Emilion. A bit further, the historical châteaux of the Dordogne region and Château de Monbazillac had opened them their doors! Their stay ended with a relaxing day on the Arcachon Bay including an excursion around l’île aux Oiseaux and a gourmet stop in one of the traditional oyster farming village of the Cap Ferret.
A perfect experience in order to discover the region and its charms.
