It was rather misleading to indicate the property's facilities as apart from the terrace which was a bonus the rooms were extremely dark and depressing - the main double one having NO window, smelling fusty and unventilated (apart from a fan) and the bathroom really weird. the apartment was accessed up a dirty, uninviting staircase in quite a dodgy area and then through several long gloomy corridors before reaching the back of the building where the rooms were. It was all really dark and gloomy; Anne did not like us switching on lights so it was most discouraging to v enture out even to the bathroom.
We felt that Anne was distant and did not really want to be bothered with us although she provided breakfast on the terrace each morning. However she never spoke to us, recommended places to go (even when there was a local market) and remained very aloof. We were not invited to use the kitchen facilities although the blurb had indicated that this would be possible nor could we sit in the main sitting room which was pictured in the advertising. Despite its accessibility to sights and being in an 'atmospheric' area we found her attitude dispiriting and the rooms, especially the windowless one, unacceptable.

Anne was a perfect host. Proir to our stay, she responded to my emails very quickly. Her directions got us to the place on time. Our bedroom on the bottom floor was comfortable and Anne had a portable fan in the room since the weather was warm during our 4 day stay. Our private bathroom was down the hall from the bedroom.The character of the shared living area of living room, kitchen and patio is beautiful. Each morning we would prepare our breakfast before heading out to see the sites. At the end of a busy day, it was relaxing to sit on the patio with a glass of wine and take in the lovely view. The flat is in a quiet. and safe area and in the heart of Bordeaux. The tram is just minutes away and easily able to get to and from the train station. We would share our day excursions with other guests and Anne's family. Their cat enjoyed the added attention during our stay.
