We found this to be a very comfortable and well-equipped apartment located right on the quai-side walk that stretches as far as the eye can see. Even though it was on the quai it was quiet at night. It is clean, well-maintained and has all of the comforts of home. We were able to walk to the main points of interest or catch a tram virtually outside the front door. The Sunday markets were also right outside along the quai and provided every type of fresh food. It was the ideal place to explore and enjoy Bordeaux, either as two couples or a family of four. Berenice, the owner, lives below, speaks perfect English and generously provided her scales for us to weigh our luggage. We highly recommend his place.
Fabulous apartment! It is well-appointed, beautifully decorated, and conveniently located. It was perfect for three friends traveling together, as we each had our own bed (a bit too firm, however) plus one to spare. The apartment is great for a family or group of friends. It is located very close to restaurants and a short walk or tram ride to the old city. Had it not rained for three days, we would have taken advantage of the terrace and beautiful view. The apartment is equipped with guide books, touring tips, and restaurant recommendations. Berenice is an excellent host. On day one, she arranged for her son Alexis to meet us and he could not have been warmer or more helpful. When Berenice arrived on day two she showed up with an armful of rain coats for us to borrow. Her hospitality and humor made all the difference in our otherwise rainy and wet Bordeaux stay!
Marvellous .Such a wonderful setting. You will require only to buy Water and a few nibbles for your arrival other than that everything you need is at hand.
Exceptional in every way and Berenice is helpful and knowledgeable .
Close to shops,cafe,and 5 mins to a large selection of Restaurants.
Highly recommend a Bus Tour as it gives you an insight to the city.
The apartment is decorated and furnished beautifully as if it was the owners own home. We greatly enjoyed coming back to it after a morning exploring the town and relaxing in the sun on the terrace and watching all the activity on the river front. The terrace was in the sun until after 4pm. We bought 7 day travel passes (under 10 euros if you're over 60 - take proof) and travelled all over on the wonderful trams to save our feet. Plenty to do in our 6 day stay without leaving the city. Bought food at the Sunday market right outside the apartment to cook for dinner. Had to microwave as we couldn't work out how to use the hob and the owner was away. An instruction guide would have been useful. Very quiet in the apartment.
From the moment of our first contact, Bérénice was a perfect host. If anything, her apartment exceeds her description. It is situated in wonderful building within walking distance of everything you might want to see in Bordeaux. The tram also passes directly in front of the building. The top floor apartment, with elevator, has a beautiful view up and down the Garonne, with a lovely patio to enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine; in addition, the bedrooms have a wonderful view of the Church of St. Louis, which at sunrise positively glows a beautiful orange color. We rented a car and used the garage parking space--if you choose to do this, make sure you rent a smallish car as the space is tight, but Bérénice provides a detailed description of how to maneuver in and out of the space with no problems! The recommendations in Bérénice's very helpful book were great--we ate at two of the restaurants in the nearby neighborhood and they were magnificent. She also recommended a side trip to Arcachon, which we never would have discovered without her! It is amazing! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the bathroom was very lovely. The apartment is meticulously maintained and was immaculate when we arrived. We highly recommend this property for couples, families, friends traveling together. It was perfect.
