The Garonne and Dordogne Rivers

Discover one of France’s greatest wine regions and charming towns full of architectural history. 

The Dordogne and Garonne rivers meet at Bordeaux in South West France to form the Gironde estuary which flows into the Bay of Biscay on the Atlantic Ocean. The Dordogne River begins in Puy de Sancy, located in central France and flows 300 miles to meet the Garonne River just past the city of Libourne. 

Key to this area is the Bordeaux wine growing region; with 7,000 chateaux, Bordeaux is the most important wine producing region in France. Touring the vineyards and sampling the local wines is one of the great pleasures of visiting the area. The city itself is very stylish and has well-preserved 18th-century architecture in its old town, in particular the merchants’ houses and quaint alleyways – its port was placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2007.

The many charming towns to visit along the route are major tourist attractions because of their history and architecture; the medieval city of Blaye, Saint-Émilion, known for its wine production and Cadillac, with its listed historic monuments. 

The 7 night Garonne & Dordogne river cruise begins in Bordeaux and journeys through the undulating valleys of the Médoc and the enchanting Bordeaux region. Cruises are on board the 4* Princesse d’Aquitaine and the new MS Cyrano de Bergerac
