We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms, which has its own bathroom across the hall. Valerie's place is charming and comfortable and located in a quite street a short tram journey from town. She is a charming and helpful hostess and provided a great French continental breakfast, in her dining area downstairs, with views over the small courtyard filled with shrubbery. Valerie was invaluable in helping us work out where the main areas of interest are in Bordeaux and we had no trouble finding our way around. She speaks excellent English and so for us first time travellers in France, it was a gentle landing. The other two guest rooms downstairs are located on either side of the front passage and looked to be a good size also. Bordeaux has a lovely old quarter to wander around, with plenty of shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.
