This apartment is perfectly situated in the historic centre of Bordeaux. It is ideal for two people and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The apartment is on the second floor of an old building and opens directly to bustling restaurants and bars. Despite the location it is surprisingly quiet so you can sleep well. The owners are very helpful and friendly and we would happily stay there again as we had a most enjoyable visit.
Overall we had an enjoyable time at this apartment. It is very well situated near to the cathedral, shops and trams and is reasonably well equipped. The bed is comfortable and there is good storage space. The bathroom is small but the shower is excellent. People should be aware that it is on the second floor and there is also a staircase to the bedroom - both sets of stairs are fairly steep. This was no problem for us but could be for others. Eddie carried our luggage up and down and he and Laurent were extremely welcoming and helpful. The only real issue we had was that the apartment got rather hot and as there is no air conditioning we had to have the windows open. There was a fan but it broke - Eddie kindly supplied a replacement straight away but unfortunately it was too noisy to use at night. On one night in particular the need to have the windows open was a problem as the bar underneath the apartment was noisy until after 2am. We have checked the facilities listed for the apartment on the owners direct site, and it does actually say there is air conditioning - having said that it also says there is a fitness room so perhaps the list of facilities has not been correctly updated? Lack of air conditioning would not have bothered us, if it had not been for the noise outside and if you were staying in the really hot time of the year we imagine it could be very stuffy. However, it is a very pleasant apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Laurent and Eddie could not have been more amiable.
