Weather Averages for Bordeaux in March
Averages for Bordeaux in March
Bordeaux, France, is ideally situated along the Garonne River which is often used by European cruise ships, so it’s a popular port of call on many Mediterranean itineraries and thousands of visitors are introduced to the city in this manner. While the modernised port area is home to many continental style cafes and bars, the centre remains rooted in history.
Temperatures rise slightly in March as the spring months approach, with readings ranging from 5 to 14 degrees Celsius. However, it may feel quite a bit cooler as the city experiences chilly winds coming over from the Atlantic coast. Rainfall remains steady at around 80 to 90 mm over the month. Other destinations in the southwest experience similar downpours, including Royan.
With the warmer weather well on the way, a great way to prepare the skin for the summer heats is at the Guilly Fish Spa. The spa uses a technique that’s common in Japan which is to submerge the hands and feet into a pool filled with garra rufa fish who feed on dead skin cells. The result is similar to that of exfoliation, and the experience is by far one of the most unique in Bordeaux.
For a romantic evening filled with French cuisine, head to Croc Loup in the centre of Bordeaux’s historic district. Cuttlefish ravioli, foie gras and mushrooms tarts are just some of the many signature dishes here, although it’s really the desserts that the restaurant is known for. The menu includes unusual offerings such as liquorice and chocolate mille feuille.
The 4* Adagio Bordeaux Gambetta, with rooms from £58 per night, is located within easy walking distance of the old town, and many of the old town’s amenities. Guests can choose from two berth rooms to four berth apartments, making it great for families or large groups travelling together. There’s an on site gym, spa and Hammam for well being and relaxation.
