About Suzanna Clarke

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.

Suzanna Clarke purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Suzanna Clarke chose Downtown

This is a comfortable and luxurious property in a wonderful location. The mix of old architectural details and contemporary finishes is appealing. The Bordeaux Public Gardens are just a few meters down the street and the apartment is close to the center of town, with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

Usually holiday apartments in Bordeaux are very small and cramped. This apartment is substantially bigger, and the fittings are of high quality.

incredible apartment in Bordeaux

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I visited Bordeaux for the first time and are SO thankful to have found Suzanna's apartment through VRBO; we could not have imagined a more perfect base to explore this beautiful city.The apartment looked exactly like the VRBO photos and was accurately portrayed in the description. It is more like a luxury home than an apartment and we felt totally spoiled while staying here . The apartment simply took our breath away (massive rooms with grand, towering ceilings, state-of-the-art kitchen, cafe-quality coffees in our private courtyard, whisper quiet bedroom). We LOVED the location- only steps away from the beautiful Bordeaux gardens, close to everything in the historic part OF Bordeax', 5 mins walk from the tram stop (we caught the tram to the train station to catch our TGV to Paris).

Thankyou so much to Suzanna for your promptness and helpfulness in arranging our stay and a very big thankyou to Charlotte who was very welcoming and extremely helpful in orienting us to both the apartment and the area (and, also, made herself available throughout our stay if we'd any questions).

Owner's Response: We are delighted these guests enjoyed their stay at Bordeaux City Gardens so much. It is unusually large for a one bedroom apartment and we are glad they appreciated its exceptional qualities. It is in a great spot, with the gardens as your backyard, yet very close to a wide variety of shops and the center of town. We do our best to help guests make the most of their holiday, beautiful Bordeaux and the surrounding area.

Alles bestens. Ein optimal gelegenes Appartment, von dem man alles zu Fuss erreichen kann - 1 Minute vom Jardin Public entfernt. War zum Sprachkurs in Bordeaux und die Sprachenschule ist auch gleich um die Ecke. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Bordeaux's famous Jardin Public is at the end of the street where the apartment is located. An area of 10 hectares, this delightful public garden was established in 1746 in a style inspired by Le Nôtre, the designer of the gardens at Versailles. It includes an arboretum, a library and a Natural History Museum and is a wonderful place to cycle or simply relax and enjoy the ambiance.

The apartment is just a few minutes' walk from the commercial and historic district of the city - only 600 metres from Esplanade des Quinconces. (Which has an excellent brocante market.) It is also close to the Roman amphitheatre Palais Gallien. A multitude of excellent restaurants and bars are in in close proximity on Rue Fondaudege and Cours George Clemenceau, as well as antique shops, art galleries and other high street shops. The specialist food market and a choice of many other shops can be found at Marche des Grands Hommes.

The elegant boutiques on Allee de Tourny and Rue Saint Catherine are nearby, as is Bordeaux's renowned Grand Theatre.

Walk through the Public Gardens to the Contemporary Art Museum, the river and the quai and its restaurants, shopping and morning food markets, the antique and vintage shops of Rue Notre Dame and the Marche des Chartrons.
