Living room, which has a view in two directions

Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed

This elegant, beautifully designed apartment is truly French in style. It is on the second floor (American third floor) of an eighteenth century building, on one of Bordeaux's best streets.

You enter a hallway leading to an unusually large and light living/dining room, with three sets of French doors opening onto Juliette balconies. There are excellent views towards the ever-changing Garonne river in one direction and down the sweep of neo-classical buildings on Cours d'Alsace Lorraine in the other.

The apartment is well ventilated in summer and windows are double glazed, so it is cosy in winter.

The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher and microwave.

The comfortable double bedroom also has a set of French doors offering a view, while the thick curtains ensure you can sleep at any time of day. The bathroom also has a washing machine.

Bordeaux River View apartment is situated in the historic heart of the World Heritage listed city, close to all the major sights and an ideal location for visits to vineyards, the wine school, wine-tasting venues and French language schools.

Our English and French speaking caretaker will meet you and show you the apartment. She is on hand should you need any advice or assistance during your stay. There is a house book, containing restaurant recommendations, transport information and other services you may require. A maid service is available on demand.

Surrounding the apartment are streets and squares with literally hundreds of excellent bars and restaurants. There are also numerous markets nearby, selling everything from gourmet produce to antiques.

About a three minute walk away is the famous Rue Sainte-Catherine. At 1.2 kilometres, it is the longest pedestrian shopping street in France and features shops like Galeries Lafayette, Fnac, C&A, H&M, most of the major labels; plus a multitude of designer boutiques and specialty shops.

If you wish to venture further afield, the tram stop is about 20 meters from the apartment building, with routes which can take you all over the city. If outlet shopping is your thing, head for Quai des Marques, near Chartrons, where you will find lots of shops offering clothing and homewares at greatly reduced prices.

Just down the Quai Richelieu, which you can see from the apartment window, is the Place de la Bourse - the royal square built under Louis XV. The semi-circle of eighteenth century buildings is reflected in the shallow pool, the Miror d'eau, which in summer comes alive with people splashing, wading and making the most of the warm weather.

You can stroll or cycle along the linear park which follows the river, where families and friends picnic among the flowers.

If you would like to explore the wine region you can either rent a car or take one of the many small group tours available through Bordeaux Tourism. The tourist office is about a 10 minute walk, or a 3 minute tram ride away, near the Grand Theatre.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux River View is in the heart of the historic area of Bordeaux, and is close to many restaurants, bars and cafes. It is also only two minute's walk from the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe, Rue St Catherine, which has hundreds of boutiques and specialist shops. Museums, art galleries and the famous Grand Theatre de Bordeaux are also only a short walk way.

The tram stop is about 50 meters away, and secure parking is easily available. Every weekend there is a huge antique and bric-a-brac market along the Quai, and lots of fruit and vegetable markets.

"The apartment photographs flattered to deceive."

The initial impression on arriving at the block, housing the apartment ,was off-putting to see a bar on the ground floor which turned out to be very noisy into the early hours. Entering the building o… More
