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 2011
Why Suzanna Clarke chose Downtown
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.

Fairy tale apartment, perfectly located
The apartment, view and location could not be better--airy and spacious, and right in the heart of the historic district of Bordeaux. Fleur and Charlotte were lovely to deal with--merci beaucoup!
Great location and spacious, very clean apartment
We really enjoyed our time in Bordeaux and eloping the surrounding wine country. The apartment suited us very well. There are 2 good size bedrooms, and a nice living area. The kitchen is very well equipped as well.
The staff we worked with were all very accommodating and very nice people.
It is close to the river and also convenient to many restaurants, wine bars, and a grocery store. It is not quite as convenient to the bus or train, but trams are nearby if you need them. We like to do a lot of walking, and central Bordeaux is very good for that. All in all, we highly recommend the apartment.
October in Bordeaux
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It is centrally located with easy walks to the waterfront, markets, shopping, and restaurants. A car wasn't needed. The apartment itself was clean, spacious and comfortably accomodated four people. Check in and out were straightforward and flexible. If I were to return to Bordeaux, I would stay here again.
Charming spacious apartment in historic Bordeaux
We stayed at this wonderful apartment for two weeks with our two little children. The apartment itself was lovely and had all the comforts of home. The lift acess was great as we had a pram and lots of luggage. Wi-fi and international telephone calls were included which was fantastic. The location was gorgeous, with views of Porte Cailhau from the living room window, and only a stone's throw from the riverside. Two tram lines are only moments away. The historic city centre is equally convenient to reach on foot. Also loved the nespresso machine and great reading material about Bordeaux and the wines. We would highly recommend this apartment.
We are delighted these guests enjoyed their stay at The Key to Bordeaux so much. It's an ideal apartment for families, with two bedrooms and accommodation for up to six. It's located in the historic center and all the conveniences you need are near by; a small supermarket is only two minutes' walk, and good restaurants are in the square around the corner. (There is a gelato shop in the same street - so you can indulge yourself in the summer months.)
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.
