When we booked, I was initially concerned that we might be too far out of the city centre, but the location is superb. The excellent Simply supermarket is only five minutes walk from the apartment, as is also the Rue Roustaing Line B tram stop which takes you right into the city centre efficiently in about 13 minutes. So, although technically you are in the suburb of Talence, the city centre and the river are highly accessible.
What is really exceptional about the fourth-floor apartment is the large sun terrace, which gets the sun all day. With a barbecue supplied, we ended up more or less living on the terrace for large parts of our stay. The rest of the apartment is tastefully decorated and impeccably equipped - large open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge, and bathroom with both shower cabinet and bath. The only point to note is that the second bedroom has two small single beds, ideal for teenagers but possibly a bit of a squeeze for two large adults.
The block is modern, very secure (gated) and very quiet, with parking.
As you can see, I can't recommend the place highly enough. The owners, Martin (French) and Aleksandra (English-speaking Pole), are tremendously obliging, and live locally if you need anything (we didn't). And, of course, Bordeaux is a gem of a city - not too daunting in size but full of historic buildings. The riverbank is particular has been extensively renovated in recent years.
And there's also the wine....genuinely world-class and ludicrously affordable!
