The property is great, excellent location, good comms with the owner. Everything you could want for an enjoyable stay in Bordeaux. Except - We were given a very short window of time to check-in, about 20 minutes which is difficult to achieve when travelling by various means of transport from the UK. The owner had arranged for an agent to let us in. When we sent a text from the station saying we would miss the given time by about five minutes we received a not very polite reply. We were left waiting outside the property for 20 minutes. Not a good start. However, it did get better.
We enjoyed our stay in this historic apartment. It was very convenient to all the sights of Bordeaux. The apartment is clean and well equipped and very quiet even though it’s in a very lively neighborhood. If you plan on cooking make sure you visit the farmers market, it’s the best. Lots of good restaurants and cafes and the tram stop is very close by.
Loved being in number 18. Never slept in a cave before!
It was extremely well appointed and equipped.
It was in a very central spot with lots of eating places and sites to see. Bordeaux is beautiful.
L’Etoile was a newly opened restaurant selling French food just five minutes from the apartment. The staff were extremely welcoming.
Many sites to see in Bordeaux.
Charming historic building apartment
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unique castle-like apartment in a hundreds of years old building in the historic St. Michel area of Bordeaux. Everything was walkable or easy to get to by tram of the sights in the city. We did a day trip to the St. Emilion wine district that was also terrific. That and other trips are easy to arrange at the tourist office which is a walk or quick tram ride from the apartment. I had a foot injury and also appreciated the sort of tuk tuk tourist ride around the sights, also easy to get at the tourist office. Corinne and Lionel gave helpful guidance, maps and suggestions for sights, restaurants, daytrip possibilities. Be aware that if you have large luggage or wheelchair or the like, that the apartment is located down two levels of spiral rock steps. There are windows opening onto an interior little courtyard between buildings, the apartment is nicely appointed. With solid rock walls, you really feel tucked away though that, for us, was part of the historic, authentic charm. It was a great experience, a unique place to stay, in fact we recommended it to other travelers we met in Provence as they were headed there.
Charming and enchanting stay!
We were welcomed at the apartment by our host. He was warm and welcoming. He kindly showed us around the apartment and gave us great suggestions on what to do and where to visit. Wonderful location in Bordeaux, very close to restaurants, shops, and near the tram. The master bedroom was cozy yet very spacious with lots of charm. The bathroom was up to date with a modern shower with great water pressure. We used the sofa bed which was comfortable and easy to setup.
It was a wonderful experience to stay in a 13th century apartment! Would highly recommend to stay here on a visit to Bordeaux!
Thank you very much Lauren.
An idyllic retreat in the heart of Bordeaux
We had a great time the appartment is hidden away downstairs in the historic heart of Bordeaux, Lionel was a great host even meeting us from the tram which we took from the station as our TGV was late and the wifi on the train wasn't working.
The appartment is superbly appointed, good king sized bed and a lovely shower.
The property has steep stairs to it and the doorway to the bedroom is low but if your mobility is not challenged then I would highly recommend the apartment and the city.
lots of great restaurants and bars in easy strolling distance.
