Bordeaux Apartment Rental Photos and Description

FACING THE PUBLIC GARDEN, LIGHT, SPACIOUS(50 Sqm), FULL OF CHARM, HIGH COMFORT

The apartment is on the first floor of a beautiful limestone building, typical of the local classical architectural style, with its large windows opening onto a long balcony which directly overlooks the “Jardin Public”. The apartment enjoys a privileged location within the UNESCO classified sector and because it faces in a Southwardly direction, it is extremely light.

The apartment was renovated in 2011, to introduce a touch of modernity and color while respecting all the traditional fixtures and mouldings. Particular care was given to the quality of its furnishings and of its equipment, while maintaining the classical refinement of its style. We believe it offers an sophisticated, comfortable and cozy atmosphere. A quiet area, equipped with WiFi, a printer and a scanner, provides all the necessary amenities for work or study (should you need to) during your stay. The apartment provides a comfortable living space to two people.

------- WHAT TO DO IN BORDEAUX: There are many cultural things to do and see in Bordeaux: Concerts, operas, ballets, theatre. There are many well-stocked museums for lovers of history and the plastic and decorative arts.

Those who are interested in more sensual pleasures can take courses in cooking or wine tasting; or they can simply go and appreciate the local gastronomic specialties in one of the many wine-bars and restaurants of the city. Bordeaux’s oenological tourism is well renowned.

Lastly, Bordeaux is a first choice destination for shopping: you will find here all the most famous fashion brands.

You will find lots of information about things to visit and do in Bordeaux in the apartment. We will also be happy to help you to gather further information and to prepare in advance the programme of your activities.

------- PRACTICAL INFORMATION: Within two hundred metres from the apartment, you will find all the shops and services necessary to meet your basic needs, along with several restaurants. A bit further away but still within walking distance, you will reach the Chartrons area, with its wide choice of first choice foods shops, antique shops, bars and restaurants.

A bus station stands some twenty metres from the apartment building. The tramway station can be found on the other side of the “Jardin Public”. For 10 € you can purchase a travelcard which will give you a week’s use of all the public transport of the town.

You will also find a public bike rental facility (with on-line booking, and credit card payment) some 50 metres from the apartment. Do not hesitate also to use the services of the “Taxi-bikes”, which will take you for a touristic trip within the city or to the destination of your choice.

You will find all the information you need about these in the apartment.

------- OUR 'PLUS': We will do our very best to make your stay the easiest and most pleasant as possible.

- If you need a TAXI to fetch you from the airport, we can book one for you. He will wait for you at the airport and you can pay him when you arrive at your apartment.

- When you arrive, you will find that we have stocked the apartment with SOME BASIC FOODS, for a light snack on arrival and for your first breakfast.

- If you would like to eat a GASTRONOMIC-STANDARD MEAL in the cozy and romantic atmosphere of the apartment, we can put you in contact with a cook who will cook it and bring it to you in the apartment.

- So that you know, if you come by car (or decide to rent one locally), you will not have difficulty to find a place to park it during your stay. Car parking is free in the surrounding streets.

Elegant Residence in Park Setting

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at La Cascade for a month and quickly felt as if this was our second home. Warmly greeted by the owners, Bernadette and Claude, who spoke good English, and thoroughly explained what we needed to know. They left us with a basket of a selection of food and a nice bottle of wine, what a welcome. Location is great, just across from Le Jardin Public, far enough away from the busy City, but just a 15 minute walk across the park to reach the tourist centre. Small grocery shops, boucherie, boulangerie and other shops within a 5 minute walk. Rental bike system just a few steps away as well as a bus stop across the street. Tram stop just a walk across the park. Apartment well equipped and we loved the mix of old and new, beautiful crockery and linens. Having a maid come in once a week was a welcome luxury. Lots of tourist information in the apartment. Great Wifi. Apartment also has a tiny balcony looking onto the park. Would highly recommend this apartment for a stay n Bordeaux. Thank you for your warm welcome, Bernadette and Claude and for providing such a charming home away from home. Claire and Robin

Owner's Response: A home away from home! That is just the feeling we hope our guests are experiencing when they stay at “La Cascade”. Our aim is to provide them with the warmest welcome and the best conditions to discover a new city, a new country, a new culture. Thank you Claire and Robin for having chosen our apartment as a pied-à-terre to explore Bordeaux and its surroundings during a full month. It was a privilege to receive you. Claude and Bernadette

Perfect Place to Stay in Bordeaux

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this very well located apartment was one of the highlights of our recent trip to France. From the moment of his most appreciated welcome (and I mean his thoughtful run through of the various facilities in the apartment, as well as the extremely valuable collection of local information including neighbourhood restaurants and bus routes - not just the bottle of delightful wine and the basic foods he had waiting for us!) to his final goodbye prior to, once again, phoning the driver to confirm our taxi would be arriving at 5am the next morning to get us to our early flight out of Bordeaux, one could not ask for a more charming, unintrusive yet helpful host than Claude.

The apartment itself is well appointed and tastefully decorated with much more space than most hotel rooms and a truly functional bathroom - the best shower we encountered in France! Having the opportunity to catch up on laundry and to enjoy a home-cooked meal using up to date and functional equipment was a welcome break from constant restaurant meals while having a bus stop directly across the street from the apartment made getting into the centre of the city easy on those wet days when walking wasn’t as appealing. And if taking a stroll in a lovely garden is appealing, the Jardin Public (the largest garden in the city) is also literally across the street.

I thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Which better feeling of achievement could we experience than the one Anne’s laudatory and detailed review of her stay at “La Cascade” gives us? Coming from somebody with professional activities in the touristic area and a high level of expectation, it is all the more significant. It means that we fully met our objective, which is to make our guests feeling at home. You will be welcome at any time Anne and Lawrence, if you are tempted to discover Bordeaux and its vineyards under a more auspicious sky. Claude and Bernadette.

Beautifully set-up and a warm welcome.

  • 5 of 5
For anyone with rusty or unconfident French this Apartment is ideal. Monsieur Raynault meets you and explains everything in good clear English and is full of information on what is available to see in Bordeaux and the surrounding area. The Apartment is delightfully furnished and there are thoughtful details, such as ground coffee ready in the cupboard, coffee filters and olive oil. The linen is very good quality and the porcelain plates are a delight to use. It is a pleasure to buy food from the nearby market at St Seurin and to return to the Apartment to enjoy it in your own home from home.
I would happily come back to this Apartment, next time for longer, and have already recommended it to my friends.

Owner's Response: What a pleasure when our guests accent on the special care we put on choosing high quality items to equip the apartment – dishes, glasses, linen – in order to fit in with the warm and refined decoration, the superb location, and make it a welcoming “home from home”. Thank you Georgiana. We are looking forward to seeing you again at “La Cascade”.

A little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in LaCascade for a week in December. The owner met us at the apartment with the key, and showed us all the features. They even provided us with breakfast items and fruit to tide us over until we went shopping. We really appreciated this since we were traveling across several time zones and were jet lagged.

We absolutely loved the apartment. It was very comfortable, and very well located. We really enjoyed the 'la belle epoch' feel of the apartment, the architectural details, and sitting out on the balcony that overlooks a gorgeous park. The renovation of this apartment has been well thought out and executed with great care and quality elements. The bed was comfortable, and the apartment was never cold with well placed heaters.

The park across the street is lovely, and large enough for a morning run or long romantic stroll. After a short walk through the park one is well situated to walk throughout the downtown shopping district. Grocery stores, bakery, delicatessen and wine stores are only a couple of blocks from the apartment as are restaurants. We enjoyed the Christmas Market and the regional delicacies we found there. The architecture of Bordeaux is stunning. This was our first trip to the area and we found it had all the wonderful things France offers without the traffic or crowds of Paris. We will certainly return and hopefully be able to book LaCascade!

Owner's Response: What a satisfaction to read such a flattering review! It is so rewarding to hear that we actually met our objective which is to treat our guests as we do with old friends: providing them with the best conditions to relax and enjoy their stay with us. Thank you Marianne and Lee. It was a real privilege to have you at “La Cascade” and we hope we’ll have, in the future, other opportunities to welcome you and help you to discover more of the many charms of Bordeaux and its region.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week in the apartment. Claude was most welcoming, giving us lots of valuable information about the apartment, the locality, and the city in general. He even gave us a lift to the bus station as we left! All the furnishings had a touch of class about them, and the location opposite the gardens was perfect. Local supermarket a few minutes away, and an easy stroll to the city centre, or to connect to the excellent tram network, took about 10-15 minutes. Bordeaux is a lovely city with amazing architecture and lots to see and do. The modern art museum was superb - as was the building it was housed in. Would recommend this lovely apartment without hesitation. KPG.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We were welcomed into the apartment by the charming owners Claude & Bernadette who spoke excellent english. When asked they recommended several local places to eat (which turned out to be excellent) and discreetly left us to enjoy a delicious lunch which had been left in the fridge.

The apartment was beautifully clean, light & well decorated. All facilities worked well and information about the locality was available in a file. The area was quiet but convenient for central Bordeaux & accessible by walking through the local gardens. Car parking was not a problem.

We would be the first to recommend this apartment & its most helpful owners to anyone visiting Bordeaux & its environs. Penny & Charles

The apartment is in the Longchamps quarter of Bordeaux, which, despite being within easy walking distance to the town’s busiest and most lively shopping district, is an oasis of peace. Close by you will find the green and peaceful “Jardin Public” (or Public Park). Several nearby streets, which have retained their old cobblestones, contain residential townhouses. Can be also met some typical mansions of late 18th century architecture (such as the “Petit Hôtel Labottière”). A few hundred metres further along, you will find the last remaining vestiges of the roman Burdigala - the majestic ruins of the old local coliseum – the so-called “Palais Gallien”.

------- THE 'JARDIN PUBLIC' (formerly known as the Royal Gardens), originally laid out during the 18th Century but totally redesigned in the middle of the 19th Century to resemble an English Garden, begins just in front of the apartment and extends for eight hectares right into the centre of Bordeaux. Rare trees thoughtfully planted to evoke peace and harmony, luscious flower beds, swans swimming along the canal, a waterfall (just under the windows of the apartment), an old fashioned botanic garden, all these elements, mix together with classic-styled edifices remaining from the ancient Royal Gardens, make the park an ideal place to go for a walk, to run or to simply to sit on a bench to read or to dream.

------- THE GARONNE EMBANKMENT: A walk of a quarter of an hour will lead you to the Garonne River. On your way, you will cross the Jardin Public and pass along streets bordered with some of the most beautiful classic-styled buildings of the town: for example, the famous “Pavé des Chartrons”, an avenue where English and German wine merchants used to live during the 18th Century; and at the end of which you will find the beautiful “Hôtel Ferwick” where, in 1795, the first US consulate in the world was housed. The walk along the embankment of the Garonne will take you all through the city for 4 kilometres. On the side the river flows, you can sometimes admire majestic cruising ships on their arrival into the very heart of the city. On the other side, stand magnificent 17th and 18th century mansions, built in front of the harbour during the town’s Golden Age .

------ TOURISTIC DESTINATIONS: With its preserved historical sector of 1800 hectares – the largest inhabited urban area on the UNESCO World Heritage list – Bordeaux offers inexhaustible possibilities for discoveries and visits. And, in addition to the town itself, the environs of Bordeaux also offer many opportunities for enjoyable visits. Within a 50 kilometres radius, you will find the medieval city of Saint-Emilion, the wild Atlantic Ocean beaches, the elegant seaside resort of Arcachon, the Blaye fortress and many other castles and historical sites. You can reach them all by train or by bus and return within a one day.

------- THE ESTUARY: A river cruise on the Garonne or the Gironde estuary (in some places more than 10 kilometers wide) represents a unique experience due to the beauty of the landscapes and the quality of the light. You can also visit the lighthouse of Cordouan, an extraordinary baroque construction built in the river mouth in the 17th Century,

----- THE VINEYARDS: Of course, the name of Bordeaux is closely associated with the worldwide reputation of its wine. Oenological tourism is highly developed in the city and the region. The Tourism Office of the City of Bordeaux offers a large range of programmes to visit the most famous wine chateaux of the area.

----- If you feel interested in more detailed touristic information, have a look to the websites of the Tourism office of Gironde (www.tourisme-gironde.fr) and of the City of Bordeaux (www.bordeaux-tourisme.com).

The domestic appliances and cooking equipment are of a high quality. Crockery and household linen have been selected with particular care. You will be able to hang your clothes in a large antique wardrobe. A washing machine and a large cupboard are situated in a special service-room (see the map). The TV receives a range of national and international channels. The sophisticated comfort and the localization make it an IDEAL TOURISTIC PIED-À-TERRE, but the office facilities, the land phone line (limited calls to cells and special numbers), the free parking in the surrounding streets, make it ALSO PERFECT FOR A BUSINESS STAY.
