Bordeaux Essentiel, text by Phillipe Prévot, photos by Alain Béguerie
This bilingual guide is excellent on the city’s rich history. The photos of the river and iconic monuments are stunning. Great coffee table eye-candy.
Bordeaux, Le Guide idéal, by Christophe Berliocchi, in collaboration with Camille Dufau
This guide is written in French, but don’t let that put you off. There is more than a smattering of Franglais, and it’s crammed with witty illustrations which affectionately mock the local bohemians and hipsters. A tongue in cheek guide, crammed with upto-theminute practical information. This A-Z of insider tips will fast become indispensable to locals too. The glossary of local terms such as Juppémania is eye-opening!
