“An ideal place to stop and relax for a while. Clean and presentable”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Blaye is not glitzy but it has a lot to offer. The ownersof Chez Simon were very efficient and easy to deal with. The flat was clean and well fitted, quite modern and everything worked. We would recommend this location, it suited us very well towards the end of the season.

“Great apartment with lots of character.”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We would definitely recommend Chez Simon to people travelling to the Bordeaux region. Great location in a quiet area. We stayed in the Loft apartment and if you don't mind climbing the stairs it is certainly worth it. So much character. The apartment was very well equipped and nicely decorated.

“They thought of everything!”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We really enjoyed our stay here, the building has lots of character and has been nicely appointed. Easy walking distance to all the nearby bars and restaurants. Lots of information which helped us plan our time there well. The apartment and building is kept very clean and tidy and they have fitted it out with everything you could possible need for a self catering stay.

“Perfect oasis in Blaye”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Easy to book and entry to the apartment well controlled and safe. Apartment is very well equipped even to the oyster opening knife for the fresh oysters purchased at the excellent
local market - plenty of other fresh veg, fruit, cheeses, meat and fish - more or less
everything needed for light breakfast or lunch. My wife made good use of the washing
machine & tumble dryer. Plenty of information on what to do in the area and where to eat etc,
New wine shop just opened most helpful.

“Cosy little retreat”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We found this little place on the Internet . The pictures portrayed on the website made you believe that it was an idyllic retreat nestled in the country, when in fact it is a well appointed self catering establishment located on a noisy and bustling one way street in the centre of blaye . There is some outside noise despite the double glazed window. We booked apartment 3 and it is well equipped. The one major complaint I have is that the website stated that there is air conditioning. Yes, there is in the lounge room!! The bedroom has a small fan which is totally inadequate. The bedroom could do with a ceiling fan as the room really gets unbearably hot overnight and I had to sleep on the couch. The Internet provided is great . The bathroom is spacious and there are great washing facilities . If you are lucky you can park directly on the street opposite the building, otherwise there is plenty parking available in the next street. All up a nice stay.

“A comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed four nights in the loft apartment.
Blaye was a great base for us to tour the wine districts.
A safe and small friendly town away from busy Bordeaux.

The apartment had everything we needed to cook and live in comfort, it was clean and reasonably modern.

The supply of DVD movies was greatly appreciated as everything on TV was as would be expected was in French.

My only comment for improvement would be a couple of extra pillows for the bed.

All in all we liked it and had a wonderful time there cooking fresh scallops from the market and dining in the court yard.

“Beautiful apartment very quiet location”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were wowed by the apartment which was roomy and beautifully decorated. It was well equipped and easy to access. However Blaye itself was very very quiet and most evenings everything had closed by 9.30 pm and it was a very long drive to another major town. Also MOST of the chateaux were closed for August.
