  • Great stay in Bordeaux

    "Excellent stay in the heart of Bordeaux. The location of this apartment is fantastic for walkable access to everything the city has to offer. We used its as a staying point for daily trips to the wine regions without any issues (as long as you have a car). The accommodations were very nice, with the back yard being the greatest asset. Parking comes with the apartment. The apartment has 2 bedrooms - good fit for 2 couples. The stairs up to the second floor are a bit treacherous, so definitely watch out especially at night. Overall, the stay was great and Olivier, the owner, was very easy to deal with. We'll definitely keep this place in mind for future visits and would recommend it to others whoa want to explore the region."
