    A very good B & B. Quite charming stylish old classic house and furnishings. We were well looked after by Dennis as Jean Marie was away. Was hot and they do not have air con. only fans unfortunately. There is one restaurant very near which served good food however the other good restaurants are further away. I recommend this place and would go back if the need arrised.

    Room Tip: In summer the back rooms are cooler

    Two of my sisters, their kids, my mother, my girlfriend and myself stayed with Jean Marie from June 30th to July 4th and had an absolutely wonderful stay/experience. Originally we were going to book a very high end hotel, but discovered L'Arene and could not be happier with our decision to stay there. We were able to rent the entire property, which was an absolute treat and it was great having Jean Marie's undivided attention... and between having crazy teenagers, lost luggage by Air France, a wedding to attend and many tours lined up, we required a LOT of attention, but Jean Marie was there at every turn. It was great getting to know him, sharing a few glasses of wine together and enjoying his beautiful property. I would strongly recommend L'Arene to couples and families alike and I should also mention his location is a 10-15 minute beautiful walk to anywhere you need/want to go in Bordeaux. Thanks again Jean Marie.

    This well located B&B is a moderised Bordeaux residence stylishly done. Certainly small, six rooms only with the upper rooms being compact but very comfortable. The bathrooms have excellent "raindance" showers. On the first floor there are larger, more expensive rooms. Jean Marie runs a better class of accommodation establishment and we would certainly recommend L'Arene.

    Room Tip: Parking can be a problem but get Jean Marie to advise.

    L'Arene Bordeaux provided a fabulous backdrop to our visit to Bordeaux! My husband was celebrating his 60th so our two children with their partners came to celebrate. We all loved this charming boutique hotel inside and out and it's easy access to the city centre . Jean Marie is an exceptional host who personalized our stay recommending sites and arranging visits to various wineries. It was a memorable trip and we would highly recommend it!

    I discovered this fantastic Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Bordeaux last month and was enchanted ;-) The owner, Jean-Marie, is a delight and did a great job decorating this typical family house by making it welcoming and cozy. I have appreciated the simplicity and the antique design of the place blended with a little touch of modern.
    But the Best was the glass of local red wine to drink in front of the chimney waiting for your arrival.
    Quiet neighborhood and well situated.
    Perfect getaway.

    Room Tip: Room N°1 is the best and have a comfortable bath tub.
