Le Clos de la Treille is a two-bedroom self-catering apartment conveniently situated in 'Greater Bordeaux', on the way to the seaside (Arcachon) and at a stone throw from the Pessac-Leognan châteaux.

We renovated what remained of the former stables into a holiday apartment in 2014 and had it listed with the board of tourism as a “ Meublé de Tourisme *** ”.

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 can send you a very detailed itinerary from the airport to our house so that you may avoid taking the ring road , always crowded on a Saturday . It takes between 10 and 15 minutes to get to our place from the airport through the back roads .
The local train station ( Alouette France-2 kms away ) runs two to three times an hour into Bordeaux central train station as well as Arcachon ).
We are located 100 yards away from a bus stop where you can catch a direct bus to Bordeaux historic area ( bus every 1O mns - 40 minute bus ride at peak time ). The end of tram B line , which runs into historic Bordeaux and along the Garonne river is located 1 mile away .
