Institut Culturel Bernard Magrez

12 Rue de Tivoli, 33000 Bordeaux, France

(33) 5-56-81-72-77

French wine magnate Bernard Magrez is a man of refined taste: great wine (he owns three acclaimed estates, including Grave’s Chateau Pape Clement); great food (he lured star-chef Joël Robuchon to Bordeaux); and great art, which he shares with the public at his Cultural Institute.

It’s a bit off the beaten path (about a 10-minute taxi ride from the Grand Hotel), but for art lovers, it’s a journey worth making. Housed in a stunningly restored chateau that dates from 1770, the permanent collection includes big names (Warhol, Hirst, White), and there are often temporary exhibitions.

With a two Michelin-starred restaurant Pierre Gagnaire, as well as a six-room boutique hotel, dubbed La Grande Maison, the chateau is a coveted base from which to explore Bordeaux city and beyond.
