Bordeaux Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our newly renovated apartment is at the top of an 18th century building in the center of World Heritage listed Bordeaux. There is a spectacular view from the terrace, overlooking the ancient city gate, the Porte de Bourgogne. Beyond is the Garonne river and the Pont de Pierre - the bridge over which Napoleon took his troops to Paris. You can sit with a drink in hand feeling like you are in the front row of a theatre.

The apartment has a mix of modern and antique furnishings and is colorful, warm and inviting.

Accommodation is for up to 4 people, with 2 bedrooms (each with 2 single beds that can be made into a double). There is a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with separate toilet.

As well as the beautiful spiral staircase, there is also an elevator. Taxis can stop outside the door and the tram stop is just 300 feet away. There is also a supervised parking station two minutes walk away. (12 euros per day or a discount for longer periods.) Our manager will be there to greet and show you around.

About Suzanna Clarke

My husband and I are writers and love French food, wine, architecture and culture. It is a joy to be able to live for a few weeks a year in Bordeaux. When we are not there, we are happy to be able to share this experience with others.

Suzanna Clarke purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Suzanna Clarke chose Bordeaux

As soon as we saw this apartment we knew it was perfect. The view is breathtaking and, unusually for an apartment in an eighteenth century building, it has a terrace and a lift. The streets nearby are in a pedestrian only zone (although you can take a taxi to the door of our apartment building), so you get a hint of how it must have felt to live there hundreds of years ago - many films are shot here for that reason.

What makes this apartment unique

In the area adjacent to our apartment are wonderful cobbled streets with restaurants, bars and cafes - including some famous ones. 100 metres away is the Gothic cathedral of Saint Michel. Every weekend in the surrounding square is the biggest open-air food market and antique and bric-a-brac market in the region. The apartment is only a short walk away from Rue St Catherine - the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe, and the tram stop is about 200 feet away.

The Traveling In-Laws

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Bordeaux Terrace which is centrally located with easy accessibility to restaurants and shopping by walking. The parking was not a problem for us. The roof top terrace was very nice for relaxing with a glass of wine and nibbling on cheese after a day of seeing the sights. We also took the open top bus through town which is worth while for resting your feet. All the rooms were roomy, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was nice and it worked very well to have a separate toilet room. Charlotte was very informative and helpful. She met our needs. We would recommend this apartment. The elevator was nice, too, for transporting our luggage.

Happy Traveller

  • 3 of 5
The location of this unit was ok as we were able to walk to all of the touristy sights. Were lots of restaurants nearby & a few grocery stores. However the photos are a little overstated & I question newly renovated! There is only 1 toilet and it is separated from the main bathroom which has no toilet. There is no sink for use in the room with the toilet so then you had to go back to the main bath to wash up. The toilet room is interesting. The main bath was very modern, however, we had to leave the 'curtains' closed in one of the bedrooms as a window looked directly into the main bathroom. The lovely spiral staircase was not that lovely and the elevator held barely 2 people. The bedrooms are just OK - The parking garage was very safe but expensive at 15E per day not 12. Would we stay here again?? No I don't think so! We were two couples and were disappointed as we had just stayed in 3 other VRBO locations which were much nicer for the same price.

Owner's Response: This is the first negative review of Bordeaux Terrace we have received since we began offering it for rent it in 2007. This guest has failed to mention one of the best attributes of the apartment and the reason it is so much in demand – the spectacular view from the terrace, which is a unique feature in that area of historic Bordeaux.

The apartment was last repainted and refurbished in August 2012.

Yes, there is a separate toilet and bathroom, which is clearly stated in the description. This is common in France. We rent out six apartments in Bordeaux and all, except one, are laid out like this. Most people regard it as a bonus.

It’s a pity they didn’t appreciate the World Heritage listed staircase, which is a gem. In heritage buildings, it’s rare to find large elevators, as they need to be fitted into existing spaces.

While accepting that some Canadians may be unused to European style and design, the comment about the bathroom is simply wrong. It is not possible to see into the bathroom from the main bedroom, as there is a glass brick wall. The curtain is simply there to shield the occupants from excess light. There is also another window in the bedroom onto a tiny, pretty garden.

We quoted 12.50 euros per day for the parking garage, which was correct when the quote was given. It’s a pity that a price rise of two and a half euros has caused distress to this guest. (There is a cheaper parking garage a couple of minutes walk further on, which the guest was told about.)

Fortunately the opinion of this reviewer is not shared with the hundreds of other holidaymakers who have stayed at Bordeaux Terrace – many of whom have written glowing reviews in our guest book and online.

Bordeaux "Gem" Terrace

Hi Suzanne,

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Bordeaux Terrace. Your beautiful apartment was a perfect location for us. We loved the Roof Top Terrace, where we sipped wine, broke bread & ate French cheeses. All the while taking in the spectacular views of the ancient Roman wall & the Pont de Pierre over la Garonne River.

We rented a car, for which the parking & roadways in & out of the city couldn't have been more convenient. The Tramway was literally outside our door........ which was great !!

We loved the many historical sites, fountains, markets,restaurants & shopping in the city of Bordeaux.

Charlotte provided a good initial overview & was very responsive to the electrical issue. We found the guest guide book very helpful for the stove, washer, internet, TV, markets & restaurants. We very much enjoyed your wine sharing system. Great Idea !! We took advantage of it shortly upon our arrival after traveling by train from Paris. :) :)

We also enjoyed several day trips into Medoc, St. Emillion, Librourne, Creon, Rauzan, Arcachon (delicious fresh oysters & oyster museum) & several other small towns & castles south of the city.

Our visit to Chateau Smith Haute Lafitte was delightful, the resident Doves displayed their afternoon unified flight around the Chateau. That was quite a nice finale to our visit.

At the end of each wonderful day we felt fortunate to return back to the comforts of Bordeaux Terrace.

We "Thank You" for sharing this very special place.

My Very Best Regards to you & Sandy,
~ Linda

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay in this apartment. It is perfectly located for exploring Bordeaux and the way the owners have set the apartment up makes it extremely comfortable and inviting. The owners are very helpful and organised, as is the caretaker. Bordeaux was a lovely place to visit and we would recommend this apartment as a great place to stay.

Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5
The owners of Bordeaux Terrace are extremely honest and responsive. In a time when you cannot always expect integrity, I was delighted to have had this high quality experience with Suzanna and Robert.
When I travel, I look for people and institutions that I can trust. Suzanna and Robert receive the absolute highest rating. I wish that they were my neighbors, friends, and/or business associates.
This was my second experience with VRBO. Both were outstanding.

Many thanks for the opportunity of staying in the apartment. It has all the essentials and the courtesy that you show to your guests continues each time someone else stays - the food supplies which are passed on are testament to this. It is a flat with a difference, so "vive la difference".
Bordeaux is beautiful and the outlook from the terrace will stay with us for a long time.
