A gem in the city
Lovely accommodation which suited us perfectly and a super host, Myriam. This property had everything we needed for our stay in fabulous Bordeaux. Myriam provided many basics such as store-cupboard ingredients in the kitchen, bathroom essentials and cleaning products in general. In addition to our indoor space, we loved the patio and garden area with seating and loungers plus umbrella shade. Washing machine facility was also available. A wide variety of information and book guides in our language were available and Myriam herself is a passionate Bordelaise full of info and recommendations. As we travelled by motorbike we really appreciated the huge barn space for safe parking. Bordeaux city is a wonderful destination for sightseeing and shopping; we particularly enjoyed La Cite du Vin exposition. Around Bordeaux we thoroughly enjoyed visiting Arcachon, the Medoc region and Graves/Sauternes. Our trip definitely lived up to our expectations on every level; thank you Myriam for helping make our time here such as success.
The apartment was everything we needed, clean and well appointed and in great position not far from the centre of Bordeaux.
Myriam was a star. She even picked us up in her car from the station and dropped us off on our return.
Nothing was too much trouble.
We'll be visiting again.
Charming, Off the Beaten Path, Lovely Host
My wife and I stayed here in this charming studio apartment in the Nansouty section of Bordeaux. We were given the best greeting possible by the impossibly charming Madame Bessières who made sure that we were comfortable in every way possible, and gave us recommendations for dining and sight-seeing that never failed to deliver. Madame Bessières embodies the friendliness and openness of the "Bordelaises" and was always quick to respond to any need or question.
The apartment is clean, comfortable and has a beautiful outdoor area to sit down in a peaceful atmosphere and chill with a glass of wine.
Although the apartment isn't quite city center, the Nansouty area is an area that offers artisan bakery, pastry, and cheese shops and everything you could want to experience everyday Bordeaux within a 10 minute walk.
It takes a 10-15 minute bus ride to the center of town, and about 7 minutes to the Marché des Capucins where we bought fresh produce. .
The train station is an easy 5-10 minute walk
Overall, my wife are very grateful to M. Bessières who made us feel at home, and recommend the property to anyone who is looking to stay a little off the beaten path and experience Bordeaux in a more visceral way.
Bordeaux Surprise Package
After some initial concerns on the location, we realised that once you get your head around the bus system, it is really a great place. Quiet, convenient and good value. And of course Myriam is terrific. We loved our stay in Bordeaux. You will need 3 full days minimum.
Madam Bessieres was a super hostess with lots of useful information and tips.
The ground floor studio had everything you required plus a very comfortable large bed. Madam B was very generous in leaving lots of items for us to use/keep. The garden patio and seating was lovely to come back and relax in after a day out in the city. The number 15 bus stop on the road outside was great for getting around. It was good to have safe free parking in her garage/barn which was alongside the studio, though parking it through a couple of gates made us decide it was easier to just explore Bordeaux and use the very reasonable travel cards that we got from the train station, a 10 minute walk away. It was good to be able to have the choice to eat in or out.
We chose this place because it was located close to the main railway station and because it was also very close to the town centre. Bordeaux was a lovely place and we enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is one room plus a bathroom with a good outdoor area to relax. It was just perfect for us. However the best thing about this accommodation is the owner, who helped to make the stay a wonderful experience.
We will share our favorites and our picks for the right to buy local products, organic products, and the cheapest wine.
