Travel inspiration in Lourdes and Bordeaux
Lourdes, the Marian city
Lourdes is a small town located in southern France. It is a world renowned place and a pilgrimage site for Christians. In 19th century a small local girl claimed that a lady appeared to her in a Grotto and the later told her that she was the Immaculate Conception. The faithful ones believed she was the Virgin Mary. Since that time, Lourdes has become a place of spirituality surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Indeed, Lourdes can be the ideal starting point to visit the Pyrenees Mountains. The Lourdes railway station is less than 1km from the sanctuaries of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Bordeaux, gateway to vineyards
Bordeaux is located in the heart of the Aquitaine region and is only 3 hours away by TGV from Paris. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is the epicurean French destination par excellence. Bordeaux has over a hundred thousand hectares of vineyards and 10,000 grape growers. The city produces large quantities as well as some of the most expensive wines in the world. From Bordeaux, you can take the train to Saint Emilion, one of the world’s most famous vineyards, or opt for a guided tour in a vineyard to taste one of the famous vintage wines of Margaux, Pauillac or Saint-Julien.
Reviews & ratings Lourdes - Bordeaux
"Pleasant Journey"Cynthia c.
My husband and I booked first class tickets for this train ride. We returned a rental car at the St. Jean Train Station and then rolled our luggage inside. The station was easy to navigate even speaking only a little French, and we found our car with no problem. It would be helpful if there was more luggage storage in First Class, but otherwise we had a great journey. The seats were comfortable. The man across from me kept kicking me though, so I think he needed more leg room. However, we arrived to the Montparnasse train station, and it was a disaster trying to navigate it with our luggage, so I don't suggest taking a train trip if you have more than one suitcase.
"Paris to Lourdes trip"Gnanasekaran c. 05/12/2013
We travelled from Paris to Lourdes by First Class. The heater was not working efficiently and so we were feeling cold. The train was delayed by 3 hours and 30 minutes. The announcements could also be in English in addition to French, since it is difficult for Foreigners like us to follow. The couchette was comfortable to lie. Thanks to the complimentary breakfast.

It was a pleasant journey in general. We appreciated the speed of the train. Yet, we hope the hygiene of the toilets could be improved. On our journey from Marseilles to Bordeaux, all the toilets on the train was extremely filthy. It was a long journey and we needed to go to toilet quite often. Thanks for reading my review. Carol
"Comfort and convenience "King Shan Carol c. 27/10/2013
we dropped the car off in Bordeaux before heading back to Paris. Great trip, convenient and comfortable. One tip though, take your own food and drink. Buying on the train is expensive. Otherwise no complaints. Would definitely do it again.
