A very high-end studio apartment for discerning travelers!
Best central location in Bordeaux, and a truly well-designed and perfectly equipped apartment, for leisure and business travellers alike. One of only 3 rental properties in Bordeaux officially listed as ''3***'' by the Board of Tourism.
On top of this official guarantee of truly superb standards, my previous guest's reviews (see below) will tell you a lot on their wonderful time in my apartment. Put simply, my aim is to offer discerning travellers a top quality apartment that will truly be their home away from home, whether for a business and leisure stay.
The ideal location in the heart of the city:
Everything you want to see and do is within walking distance.
I will give you tons of information on what you cannot miss while in our beautiful city : The magnificent Grand Theatre and Opera de Bordeaux, dating back from the XVIIIth century, the quiet and serene Jardin Public, the historic St Pierre district with its hundreds of restaurants and specialty boutiques, the Farmers' Market on Sunday mornings, lots of monuments and museums, the Cathedral, the Notre Dame church, a supermarket and many groceries, restaurants, bars and clubs, cinemas, theatre, you can walk everywhere in a matter of minutes. If you prefer to use our state-of-the-art tramway, the central terminal is just 3 minutes walk away.
There is off-street metered parking, and a supervised public car park within 3 minutes walk. Undoubtedly the finest location to fully enjoy our beautiful UNESCO listed city !
Brand new, modern and thoughfully designed: Two large XVIIIth century French doors open onto a South facing stone and wrought-iron balcony, letting the sunshine in and making the apartment very bright. Enjoy a glass of wine at sunset on your balcony, a nice set of bistro table and chairs is there for you to enjoy!
The apartment is in a quiet building. It has been very carefully renovated to high standards, and furnished to offer the best facilities. If you're into cooking, you'll find a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need.For the best European coffee, there's a Nespresso coffee-maker, and coffee capsules are provided in your welcome-basket (there's also regular filter coffee, and an Italian coffee maker and an electric kettle for tea!).
If you need to work, there is a desk with a printer, white printing paper, ink cartridges provided, and wireless high-speed internet connection.
Free local, European and international phone calls to landlines and cell phones (France, Europe, UK, USA, Canada).
And for those quiet evenings after a day out on the city, you will find a selection of CD's (French and classical music, lounge music), books, and DVD's not to mention over 100 TV channels on a 32'' LCD TV.
Other amenities include a washer/dryer in the apartment (with soap and softener), an iron, as well as a dishwasher.
In the apartment you will find lots of information on tours, visits, what to do and where to go, maps etc.
Everything is a very short walking distance : museums, cinemas, high class shopping, supermarket and food stores, restaurants, cafés, bars, clubs, river walks, parks etc.
The Tourist Information Center is 3 minutes walk away, and their staff will be most helpful when booking wine tours, city tours, evening open-deck bus tours of the UNESCO listed heritage sites, etc.
I will also be more than happy to give you valuable advice for all your particular needs and to take you on a short orientation tour on arrival, so that you are ready to enjoy this most gracious and sophisticated city!
A full information pack will be emailed to you just after booking so that you can start preparing your trip in the comfort of your own home!
I work in educational travel and also do some real estate too. I spend my time between Bordeaux (couldn't live anywhere else in France, this is the best place of all, believe me!) and the US, of which I am a great fan. I also own a small condo in Palm Springs, Ca, which is also available for rental.
After staying in quite a few vacation rentals myself, I decided this was the best way to spend a vacation or to stay on a business trip. I wanted to have my own place, and to bring it to the highest standards of hospitality.
After looking for a suitable place for months, I quite by chance fell upon what I immediately felt would be 'the right place'. It was in a horrible state and nearly everything had to be pulled down and remodeled from the stubs. But it was spacious, beautifully lit by sunshine, high ceilings, in a small building and a quiet street… but right in the middle of everywhere in the very chic part of the city center, so sought after.
I immediately purchased it, had an architect work on the renovations, bought modern and functional furniture with a design twist, and equipped it with everything you need for a most relaxed and comfortable stay… and more!
Since 2009, all my weeks have been rented all the time with many returnees, and it is such a pleasure to hear my guests (mostly American, Canadian and Australian travelers) comment on how beautiful their stays were!
What better reward can you get?
Apart from being in the ultimate location with every amenity at your doorstep, you will enjoy walking into an immaculate apartment, freshly prepared for you by a professional cleaner with an eye for each and every detail.
Fresh flowers, bed made with freshly ironed linens, soft bath linens, a welcome basket of tea, coffee, chocolates, wine and crisps, the latest Tourist Board publications, a very detailed House Manual with everything you need to know, a selection of CD's and DVD's, an air conditioning unit as summers can be very hot here (but the beach is never far either!), free local and international phone calls to landlines, etc.
And I am always only a phone call away!
