Romantic weekend in Bordeaux, France: Where To Stay & What To Do
A few months ago we visited Bordeaux, France.
In the heart of France’s famous wine region, Bordeaux, we embarked on a journey that blended history, culture, and ultimate luxury. Our adventure began in a charming stone tower Airbnb, but it was our subsequent stay at the Intercontinental Bordeaux that elevated our experience to a level of romance and indulgence beyond our dreams.
Days 1 and 2
A Fairytale Tower Retreat Our Bordeaux escapade commenced in a fairytale-like setting, as we settled into an enchanting Airbnb situated in a centuries-old stone tower. Our airbnb was located in the heart of the city. The tower exuded rustic charm and provided an intimate hideaway to begin our exploration of the city.
We love to stay at Airbnbs sometimes especially in places where finding vegan options could be a bit challenging.
As we ventured through Bordeaux’s cobbled streets, we discovered its rich history, indulged in delectable vegan delights at local restaurants, and immersed ourselves in the city’s vibrant atmosphere. But our anticipation was building for the grand chapter of our journey – our stay at the luxurious Intercontinental Bordeaux.

The moment we stepped into the opulent Intercontinental Bordeaux, we were captivated by the splendid views that greeted us. The hotel’s impeccable architecture and stylish interiors exuded timeless elegance, setting the stage for a romantic escape like no other.
Vegan Delights at Breakfast
Not as many vegan options compared to other hotels, but still had some. Although for a luxury hotel in a main city we were expecting a bit more.
Breakfast became a cherished moment of bonding as we planned our days ahead, hand in hand.
Spa Retreat for Two
The Intercontinental Bordeaux’s luxurious spa offered the perfect haven for relaxation and intimacy. The serene ambiance and expert care created a sanctuary for us to unwind and bask in the joy of being together.
