This bed and breakfast is a great find about 10 minutes walk to the centre of Bordeaux. The walk is a pleasant walk through The Jardin Public and we felt safe walking back at night time. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and had a large bathroom with a bath.
Lena is a great host and was happy to answer our questions and provide recommendations and directions for places to eat and drink. Breakfast was fresh and tasty, with a communal table to chat to other guests. Overall a very nice stay for exploring the Bordeaux vineyards.
Tip for Bordeaux: Le Maison de Vin is a very nice wine bar opposite the tourist office (closed on sundays) where you can sample the Bordeaux wines from as little as 2 euro a glass. Snacks (cheese/bread/meats etc) are also available for reasonable prices.
