Property description

Situated in the historic center of Bordeaux, with a view over the 'fairytale castle' of Porte Cailhau, The Key to Bordeaux is very close to the river and the famous Place de la Bourse.

This two bedroom apartment is spacious (80 sq meters). There is one double bed in the main bedroom and two singles in the second bedroom, plus a fold-out day bed in the main bedroom which sleeps two. Amenities include an elevator, dishwasher and washing machine, Wi-Fi, Cable TV and free telephone calls to most countries.

The apartment is in a quiet street, very close to the river. In the surrounding area are numerous restaurants, cafes, wine shops and small boutiques.

To reach other areas in the city, you need only walk for a couple of minutes to the tram stop, and the line will take you to the main train station and many other significant locations in the city.

It is rare to find a spacious, two bedroom apartment that is so centrally located.

The Key to Bordeaux apartment is an ideal base for sightseeing. It is located in the heart of the historic center of the city, close to the Place de la Bourse, and just one street back from the river.

Within meters of the apartment building, along cobbled streets are top-class restaurants, as well as bistros, bars and cafes. There is even a gelato bar and great little wine bar right opposite.

The linear park along the river front is within metres of the apartment, and is a hive of activity - walking, cycling, picnics on the grass, dance classes, and frequent markets. Every Saturday there is a huge open air food market at nearby St Michel, and on Sundays on along the riverfront is the biggest antiques market in the region.

The apartment is also close to Rue St Catherine - the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe - museums, art galleries and the famous Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux.

Further afield you can visit famous vineyards and elegant châteaux; pretty villages and the beautiful beaches surrounding the Bay of Arcachon.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: 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 Bordeaux:
The Key to Bordeaux is ideally located in the historic center of Bordeaux. We loved the romance of being able to look out at the 'fairytale castle' Porte Cailhau; the apartment is large, with high ceilings and in a traditional French style, and we can step out and go to a wide variety of restaurants within meters of the front door.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It's rare to find a two bedroom apartment in an historic building that is so centrally located and can also offer a delightful view and an elevator.
