Bordeaux and Dordogne: The two best regions of France you haven’t been to

Want to know the best place to find Parisian city vibes, the most prestigious wines in the world, and the most incredible countryside scenery in France?

Look no further than Bordeaux and Dordogne.

The city of Bordeaux is considered by many a smaller version of Paris. It boasts the same style of grand architecture, a variety of neighborhoods with their own identities, scores of Michelin starred restaurants, and wonderful plazas and streets for walking, dining, and shopping. Outside the city you can find countless winemaking vineyards of the highest revered appellations and classes.

Dordogne on the other hand is a region that embodies everything your French countryside dreams are made of: cliff hanging medieval villages, stunning castles, amazing historical sites, lush landscapes, vibrant markets, prehistoric cave art, and more.

Trusted Arlington based French travel experts, TripUSAFrance, offer a small group tour that takes travelers on an immersive trip to Bordeaux and Dordogne with local guides for 8 full days of touring these amazing regions with site visits, walking tours, and rewarding local experiences mixed in such as a wine masterclass, truffle hunting in an orchard, breadmaking demonstration at an old mill, making your own wine, and that’s not all!

Keeping the tours to a maximum of 16 travelers is a more sustainable way of touring that allows guests to experience better connections with the regional culture, local artisans, fellow travelers, and guides. But it also limits availability of the tours so don’t wait to book your spots on these exclusive trips before they are gone.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.

Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
