This was our first trip to Bordeaux and after our experience staying at this apartment, we will definitely return. The owners could not have been more helpful. I was on a work deadline, and the internet had broken in the town, which was terribly stressful. However, Berenice went above and beyond and lent me her personal phone so I could use her data plan in order to finish my work. She was wonderful!!! The apartment is in the perfect location for exploring the city. We walked for miles through this gorgeous city, stopping at cafes for food (and wine!), admiring the local fruits, meats, cheese and seafood from the area, and shopping in the lovely boutiques. There is an amazing amount of beautiful, historic architecture, including this apartment. The unit is beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, a lovely kitchen (we had many meals at home), a large bathroom and there is a lift, which is a relief because I had a lot of luggage because of work. The weekly Sunday market is a must see, and it's literally across the street. There are several wonderful stores within walking distance for every taste. We had a delicious duck confit and cassoulet out of a jar (!) from a gourmet store in the neighborhood. I would highly recommend staying here and visiting Bordeaux and the neighboring wine regions. We took the train to St. Emilion for the day, which was affordable and very easy to do. You will not find a more amicable host, nor a nicer apartment, anywhere in the region.
We are regular visitors to Bordeaux (two adults and two teens) and have stayed in a few different apartments now. But this one is now our favourite. It really has everything you need and is I believe, more spacious that it appears in the photos. We loved the location on the river but close to the Chatrons streets like rue Notre Dame which we love. Berenice is an excellent host with impeccable english handy if your french is limited. We appreciated the fact that she has considered everything useful for a comfortable stay including umbrellas! The tram is outside but most of the the city is within walking distance. Check out the friendly and quirky Pauls Place on rue Notre Dame, lunch on the terrace in Jardin Public and dinner in Boucheron des Chatrons further down the quays. We will definitely be back!
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.
