This lovely B&B is located slightly outside Bordeaux's heart, only two tram stations and around 5 minutes away from the city centre. Take the Rue des Freres Pitres from the stop Paul Doumer - line C, turn left and find on the right corner a beautiful restored residence in the Rue des Mandrons. Five rooms are available (not all on... More

My wife and I booked this place for four nights as the end of a trip to the Perigord. Problems started from the moment of our arrival. Leena had asked for an email in advance informing her of our arrival estimated arrival time so someone would be there to welcome us. We sent the email and received no response. When... More

We stayed here for five nights September 2014. Leena, the hostess, is super. She serves a lovely breakfast in the morning and is quite pleasant; however, it's not enough for us to recommend this place. Since it's in a residential area, we were hoping for something quiet, close to town, and with good parking. Our room was situated on a... More

I thought I had booked this hotel last week for one night, gave the hostess Leena all of my card details to guarantee the booking and pay the deposit, only for her to come back to me the next day to say she has taken a 4 day booking over mine and she couldn't continue with the reservation. How rude?... More

My wife and I were passing through Bordeaux and stayed a night at La Villa Chaleemar, and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Our room was clean, stylish, comfortable, and private, plus we had easy access to the lovely rooftop patio. Our hostess, Leena, could not have been more accommodating and friendly (even her children were great...and... More

We are from Montreal and rarely stay in B&B's. we were pleasantly surprised with La villa Chaleemar. Fresh new look, clean, very comfortable beds, warm atmosphere and the owner Leena is the best part. Friendly, helpful and speaks English or French to make you feel comfortable. Breakfast was delightful. No complaints. Only good things to say. The Internet was reliable,... More

The location is perfect. The property situated in a quiet street yet it is only 10 minutes walk to some local hang out and good restaurants. The owner Leena speak perfect English which make us communicate to her easily. The place is so clean, I look up the ceiling and don't see any spider web at all. The size of... More

Ten minute walk from cultural centre, but in quiet location with free street parking. Superb accommodation, great breakfast and charming, English speaking hostess. Zen background music characterises contemporary decor and very restful atmosphere.

A haven from the bustle of Bordeaux. Leena was very friendly and knowledgeable about what to see in the area. Fabulous breakfasts eaten around a large table in a gorgeous dining room. A roof top patio is there to be enjoyed in good weather.

after the first sight around when you enter the bb, you immediately expect a lot. and the promise is maintained: the quality and beauty of the house, the service you get and they way you live bordeaux from there confirm your very first excellent feeling. the house is in an extremely quiet and peaceful district, with a lot of original...
