Failed to live up to the expectations created by the description
Firstly, the good stuff. The swimming pool and its surroundings are lovely. In addition, the property's owner is very responsive to emails and addresses most issues promptly.
Sadly, however, there were too many of these that needed to be dealt with during the course of our stay. The single air-conditioning unit is unequal to the task of cooling such a large glass-fronted building, even in an average summer (which this was not). A portable unit was delivered in retail packaging for us to install, which was not something we really felt equipped to do while on holiday. Its use was also restricted to one room as it could not be moved downstairs. This meant that we had to eat, entertain ourselves and sleep in the one room, and at the peak of the heatwave ended up checking into a hotel in town.
The sliding doors (apparently newly installed) got stuck, and in any case even once this was fixed the doors were secured only by Allen keys, causing security concerns.
The washing machine had been left in a poor condition prior to our arrival and as a result tore holes in our clothes. (The owner paid for the damage caused and replaced the washing machine, but this was obviously not ideal on holiday).
Other fixtures and bits of furniture are showing their age and the house in a poor decorative state of repair in some places.
While we appreciated the owner's attempt to deal with some of the issues, overall, the house failed to live up to the expectations of a luxury holiday rental created by the description on this site and the amount charged for renting it.
Awesome house! Super relaxing stay. A real escape
We spent two weeks here in August 2018 and had a wonderful stay! The pictures of the house don't do it justice, the layout is really cool, all on one level (well with a couple of steps) there is a seperation between the 'living' area (kitchen, diner, lounge) and the bedrooms.
Outside the pool is the centre piece it's a really good size, it provided us with hours of fun playing in the pool or lounging by it
The LARGE garden (loads of space) is great for shade and playing around in.
The kitchen is well equipped, the internet is good and there is a good selection of DVD's if you want to chill inside instead of out!
Locally there is a bakery within a 2 minute walk, a supermarket is around 5-10 mins walk away.
Getting into Bordeaux was also very easy (around 10-15 mins drive) so the home is a good base for Bordeaux and the surrounding areas (great beaches around 1hr drive).
Axel was always quick to respond and very cool to deal with.
All in we'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a super relaxing place to stay be it for a weekend or two weeks!
Very modern, clean and contemporary
We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful house which comes with everything you could possibly need. Perfectly located for a short drive into Bordeaux
Axel was extremely helpful throughout.
Would absolutely stay here again if we revisit the region
Fantastic Retreat in Bordeaux
The house was set in a spacious garden with a brilliant pool, and complete privacy. Very modern approach inside with lots of glass and sliding doors - and gadgets !!
This house is simply fabulous and I will be booking again if it is available.
There are local shops nearby or a 15 minute drive will get you in to Bordeaux, and the best food you can eat.
Recommend Sunday Market in Bordeaux where you can get Oysters, Wine and loads of fresh produce.
This was a great vacation and I can't praise the accommodation enough - Thank you Axel (Owner) for letting us borrow it !!
Vacances dans un endroit parfait
La maison et les alentours ont dépassé nos attente.
Le jardin est magnifique et entièrement clos (idéal pour notre petit chien). L’endroit est calme, toutefois très proche de toutes commodités (boulangerie, resto et supermarchés). Bordeaux se trouve à 20 min. en voiture et aussi très central pour visiter la région.
Nous conseillons vivement, endroit idéal. Nous y retournerons volontiers.
Super séjour dans une maison très agréable à vivre
Tres belle maison très moderne, meublée avec beaucoup de goût. On s'y sent très bien. Beau jardin et piscine. De plus, la maison est très bien située pour visiter le Bordelais...
