Two of us stayed at the very well equipped and sparkling clean bungalow in the western suburbs of Bordeaux for six nights. Our hostess, Françoise, lives in a separate bungalow located on the property. She was extremely helpful in getting us oriented and offering several touring hints, but also was very discreet in respecting our privacy. Meeting her was in fact one of the biggest highlights of our trip to the region. There is a huge shopping complex about a ten minute walk away in one direction, and a small neighbourhood shopping zone which includes an excellent fish monger about a three minute walk away in another direction. La maison d'Antoinette is the perfect jumping off point for a tour of the Bordeaux wine region or is equally accessible to the old city of Bordeaux. In fact, simply sitting in her tranquil garden and admiring the surroundings would also be a great treat. Private parking is ample. Could not have asked for more!
