Weather Averages for Bordeaux in June
Averages for Bordeaux in June
Bordeaux, France, may well be known for its unrivalled wine production, but that doesn’t mean those who aren’t keen on the grape juice shouldn’t consider the city as a holiday destination. The cosmopolitan port area is adorned with sophisticated cocktail bars, and the number of British and Irish pubs serving up ice cold pints of cider and Guinness has to be seen to be believed.
June is considered to be the start of the true tourist season in Bordeaux as the temperatures rise and the rains begin to drop. Temperatures range from 13 to 25 degrees Celsius, similar to Bergerac to the east, while rainfall reduces slightly from previous months to around 70 mm which will continue to ease as the month progresses.
Those travellers who do like wine can choose to take any one of a number of tours offered by Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, a 78 hectare vineyard located just 20 minutes outside of the Bordeaux city centre. One of the most popular activities here is the tasting tour which includes a trip throughout the cellars, the vat rooms and, of course, a selection of tastings of both reds and whites produced on the property. This tour costs just £7.
For travellers who don’t like wine, the Oxford Arms is one of the many English themed pubs in Bordeaux. Board games and quizzes keep patrons entertained, while full English fry ups, fish and chips, Strongbow and Fosters keep them well fed and well watered. There’s always British sport on the TVs for those who don’t want to miss the match.
The 2* Hotel du Theatre, with rooms from £46 per night, is a truly unique and modern accommodation choice in the city centre. Each of the 23 rooms is individually styled, ranging from the pink rose and the beach holiday themed rooms, to the Playboy and Jamaican themed rooms. Single, double and quad rooms are available, and it’s a great choice for those who fancy something a little different.
