“A fabulous week in Bordeaux city centre”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

After extensive research we booked this apartment and I have to say we found it exactly as described in the other TripAdvisor reviews.

Straight after booking, Olivier and Valérie contacted us with maps and details of public transport. On arrival by taxi we were greeted by Olivier and given a thorough explanation of where everything is and how everything works. He's very friendly, helpful and professional.

The apartment is conveniently located right in the down-town centre of Bordeaux, in an area that is gradually being rejuvenated. There was building work going on nearby but as we were out and about during the day it didn't really affect us. Nevertheless the builder did apologise more than once and provide us with a bottle of decent wine to compensate. The road is narrow and one way so there isn't much traffic. When a car goes by the cobblestone and narrowness of the street does make it a little noisy. We got used to it quite quickly.

As stated elsewhere, the apartment has been tastefully refurbished in keeping with it's 18th century origins and is spotless in finish and cleanliness. We made use of the cooker, washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher. There is plenty of crockery, cutlery, utensils, dishes, wine glasses, beer glasses etc, etc. The TV is a large screen LCD with French terrestrial channels only. The broadband wifi worked very well.

During our stay it was sunny and 28 degrees warm so I often found myself sitting on the balcony having my breakfast or sampling a local wine whilst watching passersby during the early evening.

There are loads of restaurants in the area and a supermarket is reasonably local. As we were lucky with the weather we had a great time sight seeing and eating out. Down-town Bordeaux really comes to life on the Saturday evening, to the extent it feels like a completely different place.

We bought 7 day passes for the excellent tram system which we used extensively, and we used the tram then train to visit Arcachon for a beach day out and the same to visit Saint-Émilion for a wine day out. We also used the tram and 30 minute bus to get back to the airport for the return trip.

In summary a great city apartment which I highly recommend.

“Clean, comfortable, well-equipped apartment in a great location with a wonderful host.”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I stayed here with our grown daughter for a week. The hosts had the kitchen stocked for a continental breakfast which was a welcomed touch for our first morning. Plenty of pots, pans, and utensils were available to prepare home-cooked meals.

The washing machine made it easy to pack light for our trip.

The hosts were readily available for any questions and were extremely accommodating. They added greatly to our fond memories of Bordeaux.

We loved the balcony and the convenient short walk to the tram and La Place de la Bourse.
