Laure Scheffel, Artistic Director. With her creative eye, this expert of the publishing industry helped us endow this guide with an elegant and energetic touch, translating brilliantly the role of Facebook: to unite, to bring together and to inspire.

The Facebook communities, without whom this guide could never have seen the light. To make this project a success, they shared with us their infallible knowledge of Bordeaux, doing what they do all year round: helping, sharing, and making the discovery of the city an even more thrilling experience!

Wanted Community, a community that goes beyond the borders of the Internet. With almost 750,000 members in France, among which 120,000 in the Bordeaux area, this mutual assistance group was an inexhaustible source of inspiration to produce this first guide. And the Café Wanted was the ideal setting to host its launch event!
