About Nathaniel Washington

I am an American and I am Pacs-ed with Patrice, a medical doctor here in Bordeaux. We enjoy antiques, fine arts, and the ocean. We also enjoy visiting the capital cities of Europe. We look forward to meeting people from around the world and providing them with a memorable stay in Bordeaux.

Nathaniel Washington purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Nathaniel Washington chose Capucins - Victoire

This apartment has stone walls which have two niches carved into them in the dining area. When me and my partner saw that it really sealed the deal for us. The apartment is also very spacious and that makes it easy to move around and enjoy the space with the furniture that we really love.

What makes this apartment unique

The 9m2 bathroom has to be the biggest plus to this apartment. There is a large claw-foot tub with a large shower. Two people can easy get ready for dinner at a nice restaurant without getting in each other's way.

Beautiful, perfectly appointed and located, and immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

We can’t say enough about our stay at La Monnoye in Bordeaux. The space is gorgeous with lovely art works, it is perfectly clean, the kitchen gave us all we needed to cook meals with gorgeous ingredients from the Marche des Capucins or whichever supermarket you wish to visit on any day. Absolutely all the comforts of home and then some including comfy bathrobes and in suite washer and dryer. We were a week there and would have stayed longer for sure if we could. Thank you Nathaniel and Patrice for hosting us-‘we hope to meet you again some day.

Beautiful apartment, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

La Monnaye is like a movie set. A fully renovated apartment in a 400 year old building. It is filled with beautiful objects, high quality furnishing and has a superb kitchen and a beautiful bathroom. The linens were of the very highest quality and the bedroom and bathroom were both outstanding. A lovely experience.

Super place, location and owner

  • 5 of 5

Eileen and I really enjoyed staying at Nathaniel’s apartment. The place is beautiful and located near everything, but not noisy. Nathaniel is the most organized host and will help you understand Bordeaux and the area. If you are considering coming to Bordeaux this is the place to stay.

Luxurious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing. Every detail was perfect - beautiful decor, comfortable beds, lots of space for my family of 5, and ceiling fans! Nathaniel made sure we had all the info we needed to see the city during our too-short stay. Great location in historic Bordeaux, close to fantastic restaurants and shopping. We can't wait to return.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, excellent location, wonderful owners. I highly recommend this apartment! It is equipped with everything you could need and carefully restored with old and new furnishings. It is lovely and still feels like home. The location can’t be beat. Although you can easily walk almost everywhere, the apartment is close to great restaurants, tram stop, and the river walk, yet it is in a very quiet location. If you are driving into Bordeaux, you can park your car at the secured location - right across the street! We will definitely take advantage of this next time.

We arranged to have Nathaniel pick us up at the airport which made it so easy after long overseas flights. The bonus was getting to meet Nathaniel and get some background on the City. He and Patrice have done a wonderful job and certainly set a high bar for the rest of our trip. Thank You!

Even better than it looks!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment looked great online, but when we walked in we realized we had really scored. Nathaniel picked us up from the airport and was pleasant and informative throughout our stay. We splurged on his private wine tour of three elegant winery chateaux, that were informative and dripping with history - and spending the day with Nathaniel was a big plus, learning about Bordeaux and the region. The apartment was very well-equipped, the bed extremely comfortable, and the huge bathtub was a great way to get over jet-lag or a long day of sightseeing. We appreciated the attention to detail, from the tourist information, to the special teas and great coffeemaker, to the tasteful decor. If you are interested in wine - be sure to go to the new wine museum. The apartment is centrally located in the UNESCO heritage old town, with some good restaurants very close, but it was also extremely quiet. Highly recommended!

General

Artists’ ateliers, antique shops, and historical monuments densely populate the area around the apartment. It is the area for those who are seeking 18th century architecture and cultural events within a stone’s throw of the front door. The apartment is located between Sainte Croix and Saint Michel right in the heart of the historic center.

Place Léon Duguit (Place de la Monnaie)

We are lucky to be located in this beautiful 18th century square. Just in front of us you will have a view of Hôtel de la Monnaie, the mint. This square is remarkable due to its pristine 18th century architecture and is the site of many films set during this period. It is amazing to think that this square existed before The French Revolution.

Porte de la Monnaie

This door of the city is 3 mins from the apartment and takes its name from Hôtel de la Monnaie. This door to the city acts as a frame allowing you to enter into the 18th century with cobble stones underfoot.

The TNBA Theater

The National Theater of Bordeaux in Aquitaine is within 3 mins of the apartment. At any given time there are intriguing shows that will surely knock your socks off.

Conservatoire de Bordeaux (Arts Conservatory)

Located within 4 mins of the apartment is the leading school of dance, music, and drama. We can often hear the students living in the area singing and playing music they add an extra note to the church bells of Sainte Croix and Saint Michel.

Sainte Croix (church of the Holy Cross)

This 11th century Romanesque church is the oldest church in Bordeaux and is located 3 mins away from the apartment. This church is simply breath taking due to its architecture and world famous organ concerts.

Riverside (Quai de la Monnaie)

Within 4 mins of the apartment, here you will find a large garden and a Sport’s Park with a basketball and tennis courts. You will see the river as well as Napoleon I’s bridge, Pont de Pierre. This is a great place to sunbathe or go for a romantic stroll to the famous Water Mirror, a favorite of young and old alike. The riverside serves as a host to large cruising ships that enter the city under the largest lift bridge in Europe, Pont Jacques Chaban-Delmas. We are very lucky to be located so close to the riverside because it is where the many sporadic fireworks shows and open air performances of the city are displayed.

Marché des Capucins

This is a unique local market place located within 5 mins of the apartment where you can find garden fresh produce. Natives from all over the city gather here on the weekends to taste wine and eat oysters and watch the merchants sell their goods just as they have done for centuries.

Basilica Saint Michel

This is the Gothic 14th century church you see from the apartment window. It is a quick 5 min walk to the bell tower where you can tour the catacombs and climb the highest church tower in southern France. This church survived WWII but sadly is still visibly damaged by bullet marks that destroyed precious stained glass windows in 1940. Today the church is surrounded by a diverse array of restaurants and the square attracts people from all over the world to the Sunday morning antiques markets. Many of the antiques in the apartment were found right on this square.

Jardin de Douves (Medieval Ruins)

This site has been recently excavated and opened to the public. It is within 5 mins of the apartment and gives an honest glimpse of the architecture of the medieval walls surrounding the historic center. This is one of the few places in the city where the wall remains standing. Today we can walk along the top of the wall which has become a garden giving an impressive idea of the thickness of the wall.

Porte Cailhau

This door to the city is older than the Port de la Monnaie and Hôtel de la Monnaie and offers a superbe example of Gothique and Renaissance architecture. You can arrive here from the apartment in 15 mins and climb the spiraling stairs to see a museum as well as great views of the city for FREE.

Miroir d’Eau and Place de la Bourse

Within 16 mins walk from the apartment, this Water Mirror is a perfect place for pictures, to meet friends, and to splash around in the water. Here you can let your inner child run free and enjoy the signature sight of Bordeaux.

Place de la Victoire

This square is located within 10 mins of the apartment. It is the meeting place for students and is at the beginning of the longest pedestrian only street in all of France. In this area you will find a wide range of shops and restaurants fitting all budgets and tastes.

Tour Pey Berland – Cathédrale Saint-André

This tower is located 19 mins from the apartment and is a perfect example of 15th century architecture. You can climb this tower but it is not as high as the tower of Saint Michel. The Romanesque cathedral built in 1096 (only one wall of the original church remains) is world famous because Eleanor of Aquitaine married Louis VII here in 1137.
