What's the occasion? 

just a holiday. my mate's parents have a villa in Biscarrosse there, which is about half hour drive from Bordeaux.

They go every summer for a few weeks. There's about 7 of us going this time though to enjoy a week of chilling out and exploring wherever we didn't go before.

Post all news Bordeaux here. As a new fan of this league and of the team, I need to find some good sources of information. Any ideas @Batard? I do know some French so it doesn't have to be in English. 

Depends what you want to know?
