Does it mean to take the road of Vaugirard and turn right on boulevard Saint-Germain or take the road Vaugirard which is on the right until you reach Saint-Germain?

Salut, Miche! "à gauche" means to the LEFT.
right = à droit
left = à gauche
straight ahead = tout droit

so it means to the left not turning left?
then how would you say turn left/right on some street?

Since you already have "You take the street" the "à gauche" means "to the left."
If you want to say "turn left/right" first of all decide if you want the familiar (tu) or the formal (vous) and then = Tourne or Tournez à gauche/droit dans la rue.....
