Oysters taste better in the fall
Renting a VW bus in Bordeaux is especially worthwhile for gourmets, because the city has much more to offer than wine. Therefore, excursions in the well-known areas of Périgord or Cognac are suggested. Taste the tender lamb from Pauillac, or ox meat from Bazas. If you are the experienced type, have a taste of the foie gras in the region that is well known for the dish. It might not be everyone’s taste, but if you want to try it you should do it here. Also, try oysters from the Basin of Arcachon, the best local place to do so!
roadsurfer tip: An old myth says that oysters should be avoided from clams in all months that do not inclued an “r” in their name, because they can not be chilled then as well as they should be. Many people still avoid the months without an “r” , simply because oysters spawn in summer and therefore have a flavor that is way tastier.
Camper rental Bordeaux: explore the attractions in and around
No matter how old you are, if you climb the highest dune in Europe, the Dune du Pilar, across the white sands of the Atlantic Ocean and then walk down barefoot through the sand that gives way under your feet to the Atlantic, it will be like flying. You have more time on your hand? Then hike the dune, which is fully accessible with its 2.9 kilometers length and 616 meters width.
roadsurfer tip: Although there are 35 camp sites around the Basin of Arcachon (“Basin d’Arcachon”), we recommend booking the night before you arrive with your campervan in advance and perhaps a place on one of the five camp sites in the immediate vicinity of the city. This is so you can escape the heavy traffic of the day trippers to the dune in the early evening. In the evening, you can end this great day with a view of the glittering Atlantic Ocean or with gently rushing pines over your camper roof and a glass of wine.
You want some goat’s cheese with you. Store some in your cooler!

And before you continue on your jorney, Rocamadour has given its name to a type of goat cheese, for which you will surely find room in the cooler of your camper.
