It’s cheers to Wine time in Bordeaux!       

Home to some of the world’s most famous wines, there are a lot of important openings in the elegant French city in southwest France. At the end of this month it’s the Bordeaux Wine Festival, a feast of tastings, tall ships, gastronomic areas and even a drone ballet show! The wine festival is every year and always attracts a lot of tourists and is a great opportunity to taste lesser-known wines at very attractive prices.  What’s more, in the same week we’ll also be celebrating the fact that Leggett is opening a new office in the city.

Says Simon Liddiard and Bradley Turner who are heading up the new office: “With the opening of our new agency in the centre of Bordeaux next to the Mairie, we are benefitting from an increased number of listings, new agents joining our team and increased property searches from French and International buyers. It is a great moment to be a buyer, particularly for prestige properties.”

There are a range of houses and apartments with quality finishings in and around Bordeaux – not just in the city but in the countryside along the Médoc wine route and South of Bordeaux in the Graves and Sauternes wine regions. It is also a good moment to buy on the coast with more potential for negotiation on a range of properties up and down the Atlantic coast, including Arcachon Bay.

They add that uncertainty surrounding the USA election sees the Leggett team dealing with increased interest from American buyers in the city to either put down roots or have a second home. Another interesting trend is for bike and electric car-charging facilities. “Bordeaux has become a great place to bike and the size and topography of the city lend themselves to cycling. Many families have electric cargo bikes and want a property with somewhere to park them or charge their cars. Bordeaux is an ecological and pleasant place to live.”

Here are three great properties:
