This beautiful, spacious apartment at the very heart of historic Bordeaux was renovated by an architect in 2012 to the highest standards giving you all the conveniences you expect - from WIFI to dishwasher, tumbledryer and Nespresso - with all the character of a luxurious 18th century Bordeaux residence.

Furnished throughout with exquisite taste (mixing original 18th century paintings and engravings with 20th century iconic pieces of furniture), the apartment features a large and quiet master bedroom, sunny living room with balcony looking out over historic buildings, spacious dining area, fully-equipped kitchen - including a lovely breakfast bar - and bathroom with separate toilet and a wash hands.

This is a perfect base from which to explore Bordeaux and its region and return from each day's adventures to the welcome of a true home from home. Everything you might want is minutes away, from many nice restaurants, typical cafés and delicious bakeries to world-class museums, enjoyable theatres, cinemas and an amazing opera hall. My manager or I will be more than happy to give you personal advice and help organise your specific requirements, so that you can relax and enjoy our admirable city. Many city guides and addresses that tourists do not usually find will be at your disposal in the apartment. The Tourist Information Center is also within walking distance, and their staff will be very helpful when booking wine tours, city tours of the UNESCO listed heritage sites, etc. Of course, if you prefer, taxis can stop outside the door and the tram stop is just 300 feet away.

Fully updated flat in an ancient stone building (in the old center). Convenient to shopping/Metro.

  • 5 of 5

We came for a meeting in the Palais de la Bourse. The flat is large by Paris standards, and the location was perfect, being a 7-minute walk from the meeting. The bedroom is in the back and quiet. With a supermarket nearby (4 min walk), we enjoyed using the kitchen, which is well-equipped. Antoine was great, making us welcome and being available by email or at his office (2 min away). We did not have a car, and from the looks of things a car would not be practical in the center of Bordeaux, just as in central Paris.

Stylish and spacious

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is beautifully designed, stylishly furnished and thoughtfully equipped with good china and heavy cutlery and a range of meile appliances. The check in process was easy and professional. We were very comfortable here. As regular airbnb users we were surprised to have pay extra to rent linen as well as buy extra soap for the handbasin. Although we could easily walk to centre ville, and the tram was convenient, the location is at the less desirable edge of town and Cour Victor Hugo is home to the Turkish community.

Good apartment (with a parking problem)

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 weeks in this apartment in April, 2017. We have rented apts. in numerous European countries over the past 15 years and rented a different apt. in Bordeaux for 3 weeks in 2013.

Bordeaux is a terrific city from many perspectives and this apartment has a good location. Reasonably close to the very efficient tram system and walking distance to many of the interesting places in the city. The kitchen is good (we cook) and well equipped and the apt. is not cramped at all. The managers were helpful with pre-arrival questions and coordination.

However, this apt. should NOT be listed as having parking. If you need to park at your apt. do not rent this one. There is a garage at the apt.....and we rented the exact car the managers told us by email would fit. On arrival we were told to use a public parking garage 5-6 bocks away. No key to the garage was furnished by the (very nice) young woman who let us in the apt. She essentially spoke no English though the actual managers speak and write it quite well. I spoke by phone with one of the managers and was basically told the garage was not available. We were saved only by the fact that we didn't pick up the car until 7 days after we moved in. Had we arrived in the car it would have been a disaster. When I texted management for assistance (as we were told to do when arranging move in) regarding public parking procedures, cost, etc., I was ignored for 4 full days. We spent quite a bit of time on our own gathering the necessary information----which they could have given me in 2 minutes---and of course had to pay for the public garage. So....if you are planning to drive on side trips and think you will park in accord with the apt. you read about.....caveat emptor!

Excellent location, lovely apartment, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely apartment in the centre of Bordeux. We travelled as a group of four. Irish guys to see Ireland play in the European football championships. There is a double bed in one room with a fold out couch bed in the sitting room. Shower facilities are very good and the apartment is very modern.

Would highly recommend this apartment if you are looking to stay in the heard of the city!

Great location, lots of room, clean and efficient service

  • 5 of 5

We booked the place for a week to attend a professional conference which happened to be during the Euro Cup, so we were advised to book ahead. We were quite happy with the arrangements to book the place, all very professional, almost too professional, reminding me of the Swiss. We were met, as scheduled, to gain access, and were indoctrinated about the use of all facilities which included very modern appliances. The apartment is spacious with a living room overlooking the street below, large bedroom, and enormous shower. The location is only a 5 minute walk from Porte de Borgogne Tram station which is easily reached from the main train station (Gare St. Jean). The central market, and eateries are all close by. Although there is a complete kitchen, we opted to only cook once as we were stuffed, a problem while eating in Bordeaux. While most of our meals were provided by the conference program, it would be enjoyable to visit the central market and take home the bounty of Bordeaux produce to eat at home; but, as I said, we ate out much of the time.

The highlight of our trip was the annual fete le vin, which included an extraordinay light and sound show on the quai.

I admit that I was a bit nervous about the 200 euro deposit, but with a quick inspection, that was returned in full, which gave me confidence to write this positive review.

I have only one negative comment. The charge a 70 euro fee for linen. From an American perspective, that is unusual, as we expect linen to be included in a rental fee. But, I think I got most of that back. Anyway, it was unclear, but it that is the French way, it was only a small inconvenience. We had colleagues staying in hotel rooms at more expense without all the conveniences of an apartment.

So, I would rate this 5-star,would stay there again if we traveled to Bordeaux, and would highly recommend it to friends.

Great spacious appartment in the centre of Bordeaux.

A lovely bottle of wine left for us as complimentary which was a nice touch.

Well kept and perfect for a break away, living room was huge and kitchen had all the mid cons.

Recommend to all
