Weather Averages for Bordeaux in April
Averages for Bordeaux in April
Bordeaux, France, is a popular holiday destination for many reasons, including the wonderful weather. Unlike its neighbours to the east, Bordeaux experiences a more oceanic climate than Mediterranean, which gives it the best of both worlds; the warm summers and the chilly winters that sometimes bring a light sprinkling of snow.
As spring arrives into Bordeaux, the temperatures take a massive jump upwards, with lows a far more pleasant 7 degrees Celsius and highs that are reminiscent of an early summer at 18 degrees. Winter coats aren’t necessary, although jackets, cardigans and certainly waterproofs are. 80 mm of rainfall is expected over the month, remaining steady until the mid summer.
CAPC, Bordeaux’s museum of contemporary arts, is an interesting place to spend a rainy afternoon in the city. The museum boasts an impressive collection of well over 1000 works by nearly 200 different artists that display both conceptual and minimalist art. The museum offers guided tours to help first time visitors navigate the site, as well as workshops for aspiring artists.
For a touch of England in the south of France, pop in for a pint at The Sherlock Holmes Pub. Modelled on a typical English pub, the venue includes TVs showing British sports, pool tables, dart boards and the quintessential pub quiz. Padded booths and a choice of filled jacket spuds add to the bar’s theme.
The Ibis Bordeaux Centre Bastide is located right in the centre of the city and offers rooms with en suite bathrooms, TVs and air conditioning from just £55 per night. Guests can enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet style breakfast with a vast selection of both hot and cold dishes, and are within walking distance of the city’s best attractions and entertainment venues.
