Beautifully furnished with all mod cons this apartment was within walking distance from most of the main attractions and to the trams which take you anywhere else you need to go. Our wonderful host, Jean-Luc, went out of his way to make our stay memorable.
We had a wonderful 4 night stay in this apartment! Jean-Luc was super easy to deal with in setting up the booking and then he and his wife Julie met us at the apartment when we arrived. Even though we speak no French and they speak just a little English, they were very helpful in explaining everything about the apartment and the area and recommended things to do and restaurants to eat at. We could not have asked for a better location! It is right in the middle of the city and so convenient to everything, yet we never heard a thing at night and slept well. After traveling for 3 weeks, we enjoyed having a washer/dryer and it was so nice to pick up pastries at a local shop the night before and enjoy them with a cup of coffee from one of the great Nespresso or espresso machines they have. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want although we chose not to cook. We would certainly recommend this apartment and if we are ever back in Bordeaux we will definitely stay again. Thank you Jean-Luc and Julie!
We have just spent one month at this very centrally located apartment in Bordeaux.
The owners Jean-Luc and Julie are extremely warm, kind and welcoming. They can't do enough for their guests. The apartment is very quiet even though it is on a busy street. The apartment is very well equipped with kitchen appliances & utensils, fine linens and towels. It is a small building with about 4 floors and the apartment is located on the second level with a lift. My only comment would be that the bedroom has a double bed and is small but there is plenty of wardrobe space. All the appliances were excellent. There is a large light well in the centre of the building which together with large windows give a lot of natural light plus all windows are double glazed. Lounge area looks out onto other streets and buildings. There is no dining table but a bench in the kitchen with high stools which are very comfortable.The supermarket is less than 5 minutes walk, there is a bus outside plus a taxi rank and also it is only a few minutes walk to one of the tram lines. The tram and bus service we found excellent for getting around the city. Bordeaux is also a great city for walking. The apartment is also very close to many fine boutiques, restaurants and the theatre. Utopia Cinema is within walking distance and they show all movies in VO. We hope to return to this very comfortable apartment.
We had a wonderful stay at this apartment whilst in the beautiful city of Bordeaux. For our preferences the location was ideal. The apartment has been very well remodeled and well taken care of. All of our dealings with the owners was efficient, cordial, and professional. It was easy for use to comply with the requests of the owners in the agreement for the care of the apartment and respect of the neighbors since we subscribe to the same etiquette.
When time flies it is usually an indicator of a great experience. Our sojourn in Bordeaux of which a large part was due to the comfort with this apartment made our departure difficult. We left wanting more and are very sorry we did not stay longer!
Bravo to the proprietors Julie and Jean-luc!
There are so many positive aspects of this apartment I really don't know where to begin, so I'll start with location. This apartment is located just blocks from the best shopping, restaurants and historical sights in Bordeaux, all within easy walking distance.No need for Uber or taxi or car rental, you can walk to almost any Bordeaux attraction.
The apartment is located on the 2nd floor [3rd level] with stairway or elevator access; security is through a code assess door and inner door requiring a keyflob remote so you have plenty of security. Apartment is styled in modern contemporary with full kitchen and washer and is perfect for a family of four but could hold more depending on age. It was hot and humid the day we arrived so we used both the fans provided by owner Jean-Luc and did we appreciate them!
As mentioned, there are lots of restaurants close by but you need look any farther than two doors down for an excellent Italian Restaurant, other great restaurants are simply just blocks away.
But perhaps the most attractive reason you should rent this apartment is the wonder owner Jean-Luc who does everything possible to make your stay as comfortable as he can - he even provided us a ride to the rail station on our departure.
So if you are considering an apartment in Bordeaux, consider this location - it is perfect.
