Children under 12 are not accepted in this apartment. In case of non-compliance with this condition, the booking will be canceled and no refund will be made.

Bordeaux is for sophisticated living, often being described as a 'mini Paris'. Our apartment was selected for its very central location in the heart of the city. The apartment is situated between the prestigious shopping street 'Cours de l’Intendance' and the famous Gambetta Garden-square. All this area offers a smart selection of bistro restaurants, cafés, boutique clothes and jewelry shops, delicatessen and specialized gift shops. All shops and the tramway are literally just steps away.

This air-conditioned duplex-apartment (two Levels ) of 100 sqm, is located in a fully renovated registered 18th century building ('Hotel du Palais Gallien'). This apartment has been beautifully and totally renovated in 2008 and finished with all-new furnishings, fixtures and fittings. The apartment is full air-conditioned. The living room opens on a private terrace-garden (30 m2) where you can have breakfast, lunch, diner or simply take sun. For your convenience there is WiFi and broadband Internet access (20 Mega), phone, cable TV (60 channels, BBC, CNN...) and a private parking.

The apartment is offering (at ground floor level, with the access to your private garden) a beautiful and light open plan living space of more than 45 sqm, with original wooden floors, 2 huge door-windows overlooking the private and sunny garden, a kitchen fully equipped and a separate toilet with a wash hands. At the first floor of the duplex apartment, you find a desk area, two separate comfortable bedrooms (Queen size bed of 160cmX200cm in each bedroom)and a modern bathroom with a bath, a separate shower and a second toilet. The apartment is fully furnished and equipped to a very high standard, tastefully presented and modern, but in keeping with its period.

Bordeaux is in the heart of a very large and old wine area, and you will go for wine tastings in famous Medoc châteaux. It is also 50 km from the sea (Arcachon and Cap Ferret), 180 km from Spain and the mountains (Pyrénées). There are many lakes and beautiful scenary around town. The town vast world heritage site has recently been totaly cleaned and the quays along the Garonne river developed.

Beautiful and spacious apartment with all amenities and a fragrant patio garden. Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really lucked out.

This was a beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean duplex apartment on the ground floor, opening onto an inner courtyard. Two nice sized bedrooms upstairs with really comfortable beds, with convenient ceiling and bedside lights. One full bathroom with tub and shower and a half bathroom downstairs. Lots of privacy and far enough away from street noise (the rowdy football fans!). The patio garden was a big plus to relax in with a breakfast drink or wine in the evenings. The oleanders and what looked like jasmine were in bloom and the fragrance was an added bonus. The bedrooms are air conditioned and the livingroom/dining room opens onto the patio. The apartment has a washer and dryer (which works like an American dryer in which the clothes do get dry!). The wifi worked great on both floors. Kitchen detergent was provided but you will need to take your own for the laundry (I took a couple of the little Tide pacs in a ziplock).

A parking space is part of the deal and which you have to pay for whether you use it or not. The location is great -- walking distance to the old town, city center and the waterfront and five minutes walk to the tram to take you to the sights further away. Lots of pubs, cafes and restaurants close by, a Carrefour (open 7am to 10pm Mon-Sat, fewer hours on Sunday) across the street and a patisserie, open every day, a few doors away completed the excellence of the location.

Olivier had been in communication several times prior to us going over and was diligent in setting up meeting times. He met us as planned and showed us around the apartment. Thank you Olivier for a wonderful stay and a very comfortable apartment. Will definitely try to get this apartment again if we return to Bordeaux.

A hidden gem in the old city of Bordeaux.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of April, 2016 in this beautiful apartment. The location was ideal for walking anywhere in the old city. With the entrance via a courtyard / parking area off the street, and in a large old stone building, the apartment was very quiet. It is attractively furnished with antiques and artwork and in very good condition. The terrace garden was an added bonus. We enjoyed having two bathrooms, and the two-level layout gave added privacy between the bedrooms and the living area. Kitchen and laundry were well equipped, and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We would gladly stay here again.

The place I go back to every other year..

  • 5 of 5

I and my children (all adults) have been enjoying our stays in Olivier's apartment for few years now. It's a beautiful apartment which provide us with all the comfort we need. We like the feeling we get as we enter the apartment with its welcoming style, and the feeling that while we are in the heart of Bordeaux we are secure. We enjoyed the pretty terrace with its evergreen and flowers and had some wonderful relaxing time after a day of visiting and touring this beautiful city. While we enjoyed eating out, we also enjoyed cooking some meals in the very well furnished kitchen, and had great time around the table. The apartment, provided us with peace and rest at night, and we appreciated the air conditioning some nights. On our day of our arrival, we were greeted by Olivier, who is a wonderful host and give time to explain to us the "do's and don'ts". I will recommend the apartment highly to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay on his/her holidays in the city of Bordeaux.

Perfect location, very safe and, quiet apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was even better than we expected. It's an old monastery, just beautiful, and so quiet. You enter from a secured gate off the main road, into a large courtyard, which is parking for some of the units. Then you enter a secured door, into the hallway to the apartment door. There is a basic grocery store across the street, and a bakery a couple of doors down. Once you exit the gates, and turn left, you will walk directly into the main area of Bordeaux. There were several nice bars and restaurants very close by. The beds were comfortable, and everything was very clean. We were a group of two couples, but we never felt we were on top of each other. Oliver was a very helpful host, and provides a very helpful binder of instructions on how to work appliances, etc...We'd stay here again, and recommend this to anyone want a nice place in Bordeaux.

Lovely apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

What a find for a wonderful stay in Bordeaux! The host was helpful and welcoming; he went out of his way to accommodate my tight schedule for arrival since I was in town for a work related conference. The apartment itself is located a short walk to old town with all of its shops and restaurants, there is a grocery store right across the street and a bakery just outside the very secure entrance to the complex, and only a 10 minute walk to the river. Wifi was great to have, full kitchen (though some basics would have been appreciated ...salt/pepper and other kitchen cooking items, laundry soap since there is a washer/dryer, maybe a couple of extra bath towels as there was only 1 each), outdoor space was lovely...and on and on... I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would gladly stay again on another trip to Bordeaux! Did I mention that the building is an old monastery? Lots of character, quiet (did not hear street noise at all!), friendly residents. Thank you for sharing your apartment!

Wonderful aparment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for 2 weeks this May. The apartment was beautiful; the photos do not do it justice. The beds were very comfortable, and the decor was exquisite. It was quiet, centrally located, with great access to public transportation. Olivier was very responsive to our needs and gave us many good recommendations for restaurants and places to visit during our stay. Would definitely stay here again.
