Building to last
You know times aren't all that bad when your nearest city is punctuated by the exclamation marks of cranes towering above construction sites. Bordeaux is positively buzzing since the opening of the new high speed rail link to Paris and on a recent visit the number of cranes was impressive.
Have breakfast at Karl on Place du Parliament in Bordeaux (really, do not leave this off your bucket list!) and be in Paris for a full day's sight seeing just 2 hours later.
As a result of this super-easy access to the capital, and the fact that Bordeaux is just a mighty fine town to live near, property is much sought-after in and around the city.
