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 Downtown

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.

This is a beautiful apartment, all of the amenities and well located.

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Dan and Dany, were very welcoming. They showed us where everything was and how everything worked. They had even stocked the fridge with food for breakfast the next day. There were maps and tourist books available for us to look at and they also gave us some suggestions on some things to see. We thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast every morning on the private patio. There were lots of places available for shopping just a few minutes away on foot - grocery store, boulangerie, charcuterie, fruit and vegetable store. The tram was also just a few minutes on foot and it was also possible to walk to many downtown locations.

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Bordeaux and the surrounding area.

I would highly recommend having a look at this property for your stay in the city.

The place was well-equipped, clean and homey

  • 4 of 5

Bordeaux is such a lovely city. I wished I stayed longer. I didn't get a chance to meet Dan, but I was warmly greeted by Frederique who took the time to go through maps and show me places of interest and for dining. The place was clean and quiet and in a perfect neighbourhood of Chartrons where my favourite street quickly became Rue de Notre Dame. The only thing was that there were many ants everywhere including the kitchen counter despite the many ant traps that were set around the place and so I did not enjoy their lovely patio or cooking. I did hear that this was an unusual summer in France, though.

Owner's Response: We are happy to know that you had a good stay in our Bordeaux apartment, despite the small inconvenience caused by the tiny ans. After your departure, we have renewed treatment that seems to have eradicated the problem since our new vacacioners ( also from the Toronto area )have not noticed anything about it. Thank you for spending some of your time giving your appreciation. Dan

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect location for discovering Bordeaux.

We found the apartment very comfortable and well equipped for all our needs. The garden was a great addition, a lovely spot for reading and relaxing.

The welcoming package was most welcome and included many thoughtful items- ie wine and flowers.

We would highly recommend
