Must see when in Bordeaux. Very romantic and lively. There's a large water feature the kids can run and play in.

I love it here... There are a lot of restaurants around here. I also loved the early morning market by the river. Nice place for a little walk after a big dinner with your love ones.

When you stand with your back to the river and look over the water mirror you just gasp at the immense beauty and size of the Palace. Give me a bottle of Medoc Cab Merlot and I could sit there watching the world go by...More

Loved the trams. Made travelling from Le Gare to the city to simple. We did this at least once a day if not more and it was very reasonable priced
