Overview

About the property

A dreamy apartment in the historical centre

A snug home full of charm, just a few tram stops away from the train station, in the historical centre.

A few steps away from the wonderful river banks (Les Quais), the restaurants are down the street and the cinemas are right next; everything is within reach whether you go on foot or by bike. The apartment, which was recently refurbished, is characterised by silence and its atmosphere of well-being that will make you feel at home.

The tourise office is also very close; it is the meeting/starting point for several walks and tours.

About Loic de ROCQUIGNY

Why Loic de ROCQUIGNY chose Bordeaux

I love this city as well as this region; I'd like to share all this with you. This apartment really was 'love at first sight'.

What makes this apartment unique

Great échauguette in stone, and a room 'among the stars', just under the roof! So magical!

Moreover, the district is quite commercial, cultural as well as full of moving and fun!

Location is very important when traveling and this apartment is in the heart of it all. Easy access to the river walkway, to great restaurants, wine bars and more. I felt safe walking the streets at night. People are pleasant and very inviting. I needed to spend more than three nights in Bordeaux.

Excellent location in the heart of Bordeaux

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, well stocked, clean and comfortable apartment in close proximity to the main attractions. There are many excellent places to dine and several wine bars in easy walking distant. The train station is very close, by tram. Although we took a taxi from the train station to the apartment it was very easy to take the tram back. The host was extremely helpful before we arrived answering several emails very quickly and when we arrived pointing out numerous places to eat and where to buy food. A most enjoyable stay. This is not for those with mobility issues as there are 66 stone steps to the apartment and an additional 12 to the bedroom. The ensuite has a shower and sink but the toilet is off of the main floor. This is a disadvantage in the middle of the night as the stairs are a little creaky!

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed and comfortable apartment in the Saint Pierre district of Bordeaux. Air conditioning units in both lounge and bedroom. Amazing views from bedroom across the rooftops and very quiet with no noise. Very clean and well maintained. One of the best holiday apartments we have stayed in. Loic is charming and very helpful. Very close to numerous bars, cafes and restaurants and a carrfour supermarket. Easy 25 min. walk from train station or Tram C outside the station to Porte de Bourgogne will take you within a couple of mins. walk to apartment for only 1.5 euros. Sunday market at Quai des Chartrons where you can buy fruit, veg, meat, fish, cheese, wine, bread and roasted chickens. We would definately stay here again and recommend to family and friends.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Great location in the historic district. Easy walking to everything in Bordeaux. Conveniently furnished kitchen and modern appliances. Would catagorize this property as cosy, rustic, and historic vs. luxury elegance. Quirky sleeping and bath arrangement. Bedroom upstairs has nice shower and vanity, but toilette is downstairs off the living area.

comfy place right in the middle of everything

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in September on our honeymoon. Loic picked us up at the airport and gave us all the information necessary for our stay. The flat was clean and had all the dishes, pots etc for us to make our own meals. There was however, no toilet paper or soap? I think it was just an oversight. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the apartment was at night. In the daytime the street out front is packed with people. So many bakeries, stores, shops etc right within reach. We never lacked for activities and were always happy to return to our little flat. I hope to return again to Bordeaux and would surely stay again in this fine flat.

Fairytale holiday spot

  • 5 of 5

A completely private home in the middle of the old town of Bordeaux, this is a gem of a destination. Well appointed and recently fitted out, the apartment is part of one of the older buildings.

Yes there are a few steps involved, but that more easily justifies enjoying the local food - the best of which is within an easy walk, no matter whether formality or something casual is needed. Once up the stairs to bed, the outlook over the city is your own. The bedroom is a garret and one of the highest points in the area.

The host is the equal of the venue. Welcoming and helpful, he made certain that we had our bearings, including pointing out the outstanding local cheese shop and bakery before leaving us to settle.

For the best experience of Bordeaux, this is the first step. Book this place!
