A Relaxing and Fulfilling Expat Experience in Bordeaux

Bordeaux has a name and reputation that precedes it for one thing: wine. You'll find that there's plenty more to this stunning and charming city than just alcohol, but it's true that some of the greatest wines in the world are found here and the culture permeates the whole town. In addition to the many vineyards, you'll also be able to enjoy great scenery, world-class dining and nightlife, and excellent weather — it's no surprise that it's a popular destination for people across the world to live in. As well as wine, there are also other major industries in Bordeaux, from aeronautics to electronics, making it a diverse place for expatriates to meet up in a luxurious and relaxing culture.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Dubai or Jeddah, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Take Advantage of Our Local Expat Community in Bordeaux

Our members come from a diverse range of backgrounds and know what it's like to be an expat. Plus, membership is by approval only, so you can be confident in interacting with our group that you'll get quality, timely and polite advice and discussion. Even a country like France can still be a daunting prospect to move to if you're not knowledgeable about everything you'll need, so don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have. If you want to go further and meet up offline, InterNations members also organize a variety of events and activities, too, from fine dining to outdoor exploration. Our official events also attract some fascinating characters from around the expat community, so make sure you sign up for those, too!
