TESS’S TRAVEL TIPS

South African Garden and Home - - Destinatio­ns -

GOOD TO KNOW If your trip starts in Paris, tak­ing the TGV to Bordeaux is re­ally worth­while. Trains leave from Mont­par­nasse Sta­tion and the jour­ney takes un­der 2,5 hours. raileu­rope.co.za

MUST-SEE SIGHT The mir­ror pool op­po­site Bordeaux’s Place de la Bourse. Just 2cm of wa­ter cov­ers a vast gran­ite slab cre­at­ing a vis­ual and sen­sory de­light.

FAVOURITE BITE A five-course duck-cen­tric blowout at the laid-back Famille Moutier restau­rant near Thénac. famille­moutier.com
