A family home: convenient, comfy, and designed for the whole family
We live in the centre of Bordeaux, very near the “Place de la Victoire” where you can catch the tram (5 min to the historical centre) and all the city buses (10 min to the train station, 45 min to the airport). There is a small supermarket at the corner of our street, which is extremely useful to do a quick grocery shopping (24/7) and a bus which takes you to the art museum “la galerie des beaux-arts” and to the beautiful public park (children’s playground, majestic trees, sunny cafés). However, we usually simply walk everywhere or use our bikes. Eating well is part of the culture of Bordeaux. We go every weekend to the famous market, “le marché des capuchins”, like all the residents of Bordeaux, to do our shopping (fresh items: fruits, veggies, meat, fish, etc), and also to enjoy some oysters with a glass of wine. It will be our pleasure to give you the names of the restaurants we love – inexpensive ones and gourmet restaurants.
Bordeaux is a splendid city, a UNESCO World Heritage City, where there is a lot to do (museums, tours) and to see (walk around the historical parts of town, the façade of the quays, the water mirror). There are vineyards and wineries all around, and renowned châteaux such as the lovely village of Saint-Émilion.
We are also lucky enough to be only one hour away from the most sumptuous beaches of the Atlantic, the Arcachon Bay (Dune of Pilat, Cap Ferret…) and large lakes.
A little farther away, you can visit other wonderful regions, such as the Dordogne, with its unique prehistorical caves, or the Basque Country.
