When you pay a visit to France, your trip should not always mean heading out to the Eiffel tower or the Louvre museum. You can explore more of the French way of life by visiting the country’s aesthetic communes.
Here’s a few interesting aspects that the travelers stand to gain from the visit.
Heritage And Historical Consciousness
Bourg brims with culture and heritage that can be learnt by just walking through its medieval historic streets. A work of historical brilliance, you can roam about the streets and experience the past firsthand. You can hang out in parks and monasteries from the medieval period.
There are audio tours and river rides to observe fountains, walls and chapels from the 17th and 18th centuries. Tanks from the Second World War and a Romanesque crypt dating from 12th century are other major attractions for history buffs.
Around this small town lies Cotes de Bourg, a site with the finest vineyards. It might be a minor township but the homemade wine industry is booming here with a record of 400 winemakers. It is a principal supplier for Bordeaux wine. The red wine is dominant here and made from the Merlot grape while some amount of white wine is also produced.
This place is a heavenly abode for the taste buds of wine connoisseurs. Having a classic French meal in the backdrop of vast expanse of vineyards while sipping on red wine, is the classic Bourg Gironde experience.
Concerts, street art fests and cultural festivals keep on taking place all year round. One distinct event is the Les Medievales. It is a popular family celebration which takes you back to medieval France. You can dress up in old robes along with the performers who try to act like the people from the days of yore.
The old streets and architectural structures make the experience more authentic. Learning skills of war with the knights and wining and dining with the everyday folk, there is a lot to do in this festival which usually takes place in the first week of September.
What’s interesting in Bourg is the true and eternal appreciation for mature women. They are cherished here. No surprise projects like MYLF are getting so much attention here. Website that features 7 smaller series showing mature women in explicit videos, are we sure this is something that locals would like? The answer is positive and MYLF is already on the top spot of things to see once they are released!
The smooth slopes and the sea winds make Bourg Gironde perfect for setting a mood for adventure. Hiking trails are offered to certain villages. Apart from that, riding horses, jet skiing, sailing, and kayaking are also other options to choose from. The Gironde Estuary offers some boating. It is the biggest estuary in Western Europe.
