About the property

Charming fully fitted apartment: cable, phone, indoor courtyard in Les Chartrons

This comfortable 56 m² apartment which is the secondary residence of the house is located on the ground floor of a traditional house from Bordeaux built in 1928 right in the centre of the very sought-after area of Les Chartrons. It is located in a quiet street very close on foot to all amenities:

Shops, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, public transports within less than 5 minutes (tram and bus) and bikes provided by the town of Bordeaux on the same place.

The Quais de la Garonne are 10 minutes on foot with many events and activities of all sorts:

Cycle and roller skate paths, Fête du Fleuve, Fête du Vin, etc. Every Sunday morning, the market of Les Chartrons that also takes places of the Quais is very famous amongst local and tourists.

The apartment consists of a large 25 m² living space, a fully fitted modern kitchen, a beautiful bedroom opening onto the private courtyard and a bright bathroom with walk-in shower.

A very large entrance opens onto the living room from which you can access a very nice courtyard planted with trees where it is pleasant to picnic when the weather is good (entire garden at your disposal).

Geographically, the apartment is half-way between the public garden and Place Paul Doumer that both are a few minutes away from the accommodation.

About Dan Morel

Former industry executive retired to the Arcachon Bay located 60 km to the South-West of Bordeaux.

I purchased this accommodation in Bordeaux as a secondary residence to enjoy from time to time the pleasures that this beautiful town has to offer (shows, visit of the Châteaux du Bordelais during the open days, strolls and different events such as the Fête du Vin for example (I am a wine amateur and I particularly love the Bordeaux wine)).

Dan Morel purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Dan Morel chose Chartrons

I am now 76 years old and with my wife, we go to Bordeaux much less often, so my accommodation is more often available. Renting it gives me the opportunity to cover maintenance costs, taxes and different property taxes and to keep this property (that my children will inherit) in perfect condition.

What makes this apartment unique

The main assets of this residence are:

The touristic attraction of the town of Bordeaux that was recently listed “Most beautiful town of France” right after Paris. This ranking is optimized by some areas of Bordeaux that are listed UNSECO World Heritage.

The proximity of the Bordelais vineyards: some are even in the close agglomeration such as the famous “Haut-Brion” located in the neighbouring village of Pessac.

The proximity of the sea and the stunning Atlantic beaches located around 60 km from Bordeaux

The residence “Les Chartrons” which is an area famous for its art of living is located in a very quiet street yet very close to many amenities.

Tram and bus within 3 minutes on foot from the house

Shops and restaurants are also very close

The bustling Quais de Bordeaux are within less than 10 minutes on foot. From there, you can access the Cité Mondiale du Vin and its huge covered car park.

The famous Place des Quinconces, the greatest of Europe, as well as the tourist office are within 15 minutes on foot. The latter organises many activities for all tastes: boat cruises on the Garonne, visits of vineyards and their château, visit of the town by small train or during a carriage ride, etc.

The Public Garden within 3 minutes from the apartment is ideal for beautiful walks in the nature or to go jogging for sport lovers.

Finally, the value for money compared to equivalent offers in the same area is not negligible.

  • 5 of 5

Dan and Dany were the consummate hosts. Charming, helpful and full of information related to this most beautiful part of Bordeaux. The appartment is fully equipped with some luxurious extras ... fresh flowers, lovely wine and food in the fridge for a weary traveller. I felt so secure and happy here for a wondrous week in Bordeaux. Thank you Dan and Dany and your lovely daughter as well.

Bordeaux Visit

  • 4 of 5

Really convenient for tram and town centre. Easily walkable too, both to the town centre or Le Citie de Vin - beautiful stroll along the promenade. Apartment had everything required (including the likes of dishwasher tablets, teabags, coffee, oils, spices, etc). Dan and Dani were wonderful hosts who stocked the fridge with wine and food to keep us going on arrival and for breakfast the following day. Restaurants locally available too which was great after a busy day exploring. A wonderful city, lovely apartment and very kind hosts. Many thanks, Hazel and Andy.

Beautiful apartment in a lovely area, minutes walk to tram, shops and cafes, also to the lovely park. Tastefully decorated, fully equipped kitchen - washing powder even supplied,nice big bathroom with good shower. We had a really warm welcome from Dan and Danni, a bouquet of flowers and a nice bottle of red wine awaited us in the sitting room, beers and breakfast in the fridge-all unexpected and a lovely surprise. We arrived at 7pm and needed to get some shopping and Dan walked with us to the supermarket. We loved returning to the apartment in the evenings after exploring Bordeaux during the day. We will definitely recommend this apartment to anyone we know travelling to Bordeaux. Carmel and Dermot.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed three weeks in this great apartment in the middle of the very historic Chartrons area of Bordeaux. 10 minutes from the Garonne river and just a few steps from the Jardin Public (the public garden of Bordeaux). Bordeaux has a wonderful modern tram system and there is a stop quite close to the apartment (4-5 minutes). Dan and Dany, the owners, were very warm in welcoming us and very helpful with local info. The apartment is not big, but it is very comfortable with a nice veranda in the back, a well equipped kitchen, a great Italian style shower room, and a comfy sitting room/dining room. There is super fast wifi and a very nice entertainment setup. This was our second stay in this apartment and we are very much looking forward to our next.
