Bordeaux has famously become one of the leading destinations for wine lovers. With the fine wine markets dotted around the streets and the authentic French culture bursting throughout the city, it is irresistible to anyone. This fabulous city doesn’t stop at wine; due to its wonderful 18th century architecture, Bordeaux was rightfully gifted the title of ‘Little Paris’ about 200 years ago. People from all over the world travel to capture a glimpse of this stunning place, and the city offers not only memory making leisure but exceptional cuisine. Their outstanding buildings, landscapes and culture have effortlessly brought an essence of beauty to our collection and have allowed our pieces to be showcased in such a unique yet timeless way.
Similarly, to our collections, one of Bordeaux’s main attractions mixes both classic and contemporary styles to create an outstanding outcome. The ‘Mirror of Water’ or ‘Miroir d'Eau’ was designed by landscape artist, Micheal Corajoud and he created this picture-perfect installation to capture the drama of the Place de la Bourse. This spectacular pool reflects the surrounding area magnificently and has even become a place where people can leisurely paddle around on a warm summer’s day. Being central to Bordeaux, this is where local friends and family meet so they can begin a day of creating memories around the streets of this French city.
