The location of the house enables easy access to Bordeaux via public transport. Valérie and Jean-Luc made our stay really enjoyable by providing local knowledge of the surrounding area. They are both fluent English speakers and their hospitality was second to none. Thoroughly recommended.
We wanted a comfortable base near Bordeaux for a week that would be convenient for car travels to the surrounding area, and public transportation into Bordeaux. We got that and so much more! The apartment is one of the most comfortable and well-supplied of any we have rented around the world. It came with an abundance of kitchen and bath amenities, and thoughtful and delicious meal ingredients when we arrived on a Sunday when the grocery stores are closed. The terrace was lovely on warm afternoons when we returned tired from sightseeing. We made good use of the washer/dryer and the dishwasher. Valerie and Jean-Luc were extremely hospitable, and helpful with every travel detail from the moment we booked. The apartment is stocked with every travel book and pamphlet you could ever want for the area, and Valerie is the best resource of all. We absolutely loved Bordeaux and the surrounding wine country and coast, and Le Clos de la Treille was a perfect location for all our explorations.
We wanted to be in Bordeaux but not in the city enter so we chose this wonderful rental. It is an oasis in the suburbs. You feel in your own little world away from it all but close to everything. It is an old property renovated with modern amenities. We. Could sleep forever because you do not hear trafic or noise. There is parking, a yard, bbq and a table outside.
We could travel anywhere during the day and come back at night.
The ownners Valerie and Jean-Luc aver so welcoming . They treat you very well.
Le Clos de la Treille is in a great location in Pessac just outside Bordeaux. There is a bus stop a 2 minute walk from the house which takes you into central Bordeaux in just under 40 mins. There is also a tram stop on Line B a 20 minute walk which goes into the centre of Bordeaux. We hired a car, but didn't find we needed it because the location was so good and bus / tram links close by and frequent.
Jean-Luc and Valerie were perfect hosts. They made us feel incredibly welcome and spoke excellent English. They provided excellent driving directions from the airport as well as host of recommendations in terms of wine tastings, restaurants and places to visit in Bordeaux.
The accommodation itself was in great condition and very well equipped with oven, hob, coffee machine and everything else you need to self cater, including a pantry with all the basics to start you off. The double bed was really comfy and shower and bathroom really well equipped and modern. There is also a delightful veranda to sit on of the evening and enjoy the afternoon sun. In addition there is a large garden for children to play in.
All in all this is one of the best self catering holidays we have booked and will definitely be returning in the near future. Thank you Jean-Luc and Valerie so much.
This was our first stay at Le Clos de la Treille but it will definitely not be our last visit. The gite is fully modernized (part of building erected in 1700's) : bright, roomy with fashionable furnishings. Kitchen includes new appliances (a large refrigerator!) with everything you will need to prepare meals. The apartment is wonderfully maintained and the gite has full access to the lovely, tree-shaded back yard complete with benches and BBQ grill. The patio of the gite has a large table with 6 chairs for enjoying the exquisite back yard. The bathroom, as the rest of the apartment, is spotless, with a private WC room. The hosts, Jean-luc and Valerie provided us with personal attention and information about the area, setting up dinner reservations and pointing us to non touristy wineries and wine co-ops to try. We have already booked another visit to this gite. A little slice of heaven in Pessac.
