This apartment is even better and bigger than the photos would indicate, and there were more bathrooms than I expected. There are 2 (one small and one large and each has a bathtub w/shower nozzle) plus there is a toilet room near the kitchen. Though there were only two of us, four people would be quite comfortable here. They start you out with basics like toilet paper, coffee filters and soap, and the washer and dryer work great. The king-size bed in the main bedroom is firm and comfortable with high- quality linens and is very quiet at night, as this apartment is in the back of the building well away from the street. This location is close to all of the action and the city is very walkable so there is no need to have a car unless you plan to drive out of town. In fact it’s rather hard to drive the narrow streets, especially with all of the construction. And on the first Sunday of the month, driving is prohibited citywide! If you do have a car, be sure to ask for a map to the garage and the name of the garage at check in. Even though the parking garage was just a couple blocks away, we drove around for 45 minutes looking for it because of all the road construction, one-way streets, pedestrian streets and because we didn’t know the name of the garage. Don’t miss the school of wine’s Bar A Vin two blocks away. It sells wonderful wines of the area by the glass and half glass at cost. (2-6 euros!) Back to the apartment: it was a wonderful, comfortable place to stay in Bordeaux. The management agency was very nice and responsive, even when I lost some of the keys. (Sorry Kareen and Kim!)
Our recent stay in Bordeaux was perfect. Our hosts Seb and Mag were generous with their time arranging dinner reservations, taxis and being kind enough to pick us up from a cooking class and driving us back to the apartment.
The location was within walking distance from everything you
needed. Restaurants, markets, the train station and the river.
The apartment was very clean with a well appointed kitchen. And so important, a very comfortable bed.
We will look forward to returning.
