Chartrons is a world-famous quay whose name is derived from the Chartreux Convent built at the end of the 14th century. The primary reason, however, Chartrons boasts thousands of visiting holidaymakers year after year is for the exquisite collection of wines in Bordeaux as well as the one-of-a-kind historical monuments found throughout this bustling centre for commerce. Beautiful lime trees line the quays, with two additional fountains giving the area a classic charm ideal for promenading along the Garonne River. Frequenting holidaymakers and locals alike agree this quay will always be the heart of Bordeaux, with a past closely connected to the development of the city.
