About Suzanna Clarke
I am a professional writer, renovator and constant traveller. My husband and I and love French food, wine, architecture, music and culture. Originally from New Zealand and Australia, we are now permanently based in the Northern Hemisphere with homes in France and Morocco. It is a joy for us to be able to spend part of each year in Bordeaux. The city has so much to offer and when we are away, it is a pleasure to be able to share this experience with others and help them make the most of their holiday. Our team have a vast amount of experience in meeting, greeting and making guests feel comfortable. We are happy to assist in every way.

Why Suzanna Clarke chose Bordeaux
The first time we walked out onto the terrace of this apartment and saw the amazing view, all we could say was 'Wow'! We immediately decided to buy it, before we had even seen the entire place. It's the only apartment with a terrace like this that we've seen in this area. We love the fact it is in the heart of the historic centre of Bordeaux, yet has a sense of being peaceful and away from everything.
What makes this apartment unique
You can take your drink or meal onto the terrace and watch the world below. We've seen gigantic aircraft wings floating down the river, rowdy demonstrations, beautiful firework displays and delicate falling snow from here. Within five minutes we can be in Rue St Catherine, the longest shopping street in Europe, or at Capucins market, where they sell the best oysters, foie gras and cheeses. There is an artisan baker just around the corner, and on Saturdays a fantastic fruit and vegetable market. On Sundays, only metres from the apartment building, you can hunt for treasures among the bric-a-brac and antiques of the St Michel market. I've found some great and inexpensive collectables here, ranging from early editions of classic books, to old photos, to vintage clothing, to kitchenware, to pieces of embroidery and garden sculptures.
There is a wide selection of restaurants and bars very nearby, and the tram stop to go further afield is less than 50 meters away.
Guestbook comments from the manager
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.
