Trip to Southwest France

Tom from NC | Jan 22, 2005 01:45 PM

Hi There-

The wife and I are planning a 7 day trip to southwest France in late Feb. We will be spending 4 nights in the city of Bordeaux and 2 nights on a snail/foie gras farm near Thivers (not far from Perigueux). The final night we’ll be in Paris.

As far as day trips, we’ll spend a full day in Arachon, 1-2 days touring chateaux in St. Emilion and the Medoc, 1 day in Perigueux for the market, so we seem to have a day or so open for activity. Any other notable day trips? We’ll have a car.

The only meals we have planned so far are: Arachon – eating oysters off the boat and lunch at Château Cordeillan Bages near Pauillac. Bordeaux seems to have plentiful dinner options: Le Chapon Fin, Le Mably, Le Saint James in Bouliac and La Tupina.

Are there any “must go” restaurants or other prime experiences that we should be aware of while we’re there?

We're especially fond of seafood, artisnal cheeses, foie gras and pretty much all the good things that life has to offer.

Thanks in advance!
