Motorhome Rental Bordeaux Airport - Compare Costs

Campervan Rental Bordeaux – Airport Pikups Available

Famous for its wines – arguably the best found anywhere on the planet – Bordeaux is one of western France’s highlights and is known for having more of an English feel to it than most other cities around the country. Although it is mostly a flat city, Bordeaux offers unique scenery and having a motorhome rental allows you to venture off into the countryside to stay at one of the numerous motorhome sites whenever you wish. We can offer a wide choice of both campervan sizes plus a range of suppliers that include Big Sky Motorhome Rental France and AVIS

As Bordeaux’s streets are incredibly old and narrow, driving around the city centre isn’t advised. You are better off parking somewhere and walking to the attractions. For trips out of the city, it always pays to have a your own mobile home so you may visit the popular wine houses that include Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Latour and Château Mouton Rothschild.

Latest Customer Reviews

Great experience again , the camper which we got was a compact Globescout Fiat Ducati and was in excellent quality. The service provided by the Black Sheep staff in Lyon was good as well. My wife and I look forward to more trips to Europe. Next time we are thinking of booking a Volkswagen California style camper.
