Bordeaux apartment description

Our renovated apartment is at the top of an 18th century building in the center of World Heritage listed Bordeaux. There is a spectacular view from the terrace, overlooking the ancient city gate, the Porte de Bourgogne. Beyond is the Garonne river and the Pont de Pierre - the bridge over which Napoleon took his troops to Paris. You can sit with a drink in hand feeling like you are in the front row of a theatre.

The apartment has a mix of modern and antique furnishings and is colorful, warm and inviting.

Accommodation is for up to 4 people, with 2 bedrooms (each with 2 single beds that can be made into a double). There is a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with separate toilet.

As well as the beautiful spiral staircase, there is also an elevator. Taxis can stop outside the door and the tram stop is just 300 feet away. There is also a supervised parking station two minutes walk away. (12 euros per day or a discount for longer periods.) Our manager will be there to greet and show you around.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My husband and I are writers and love French food, wine, architecture and culture. It is a joy to be able to live for a few weeks a year in Bordeaux. When we are not there, we are happy to be able to share this experience with others.

Why the Owner Chose Bordeaux:
As soon as we saw this apartment we knew it was perfect. The view is breathtaking and, unusually for an apartment in an eighteenth century building, it has a terrace and a lift. The streets nearby are in a pedestrian only zone (although you can take a taxi to the door of our apartment building), so you get a hint of how it must have felt to live there hundreds of years ago - many films are shot here for that reason.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
In the area adjacent to our apartment are wonderful cobbled streets with restaurants, bars and cafes - including some famous ones. 100 metres away is the Gothic cathedral of Saint Michel. Every weekend in the surrounding square is the biggest open-air food market and antique and bric-a-brac market in the region. The apartment is only a short walk away from Rue St Catherine - the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe, and the tram stop is about 200 feet away.
