This house, built on three levels, is a perfect pied-a-terre for a getaway in the capital of the Gironde.
The modern and very practical kitchen opens on to a large space that serves as a living area, with a table for 8 and a contemporary-style living room with a fireplace as its centerpiece. The solid hardwood floors bring a touch of sophistication to this discreet home, and its warm, welcoming and restful atmosphere. A flight of stairs, somewhat steep however, leads up to the other floors and the bedrooms. The master suite, a bright and cheerful room with exposed beams, communicates with a Zen-like wooded terrace, private and well protected from prying eyes. An ideal refuge for families or young couples who want to treat themselves to a stay in this unique city (children are welcome and there’s the possibility of adding a baby bed).
The house also has a little private garden, equipped with a plancha so you can make the most of the soft summer evenings. Despite its proximity to the city-center, the neighborhood is peaceful and quiet, with little noise to disturb you.

The house is beautifully located in a quiet and residential neighborhood and only a 10-minute walk from Bordeaux’s city-center. You are also very close (about 2 km) to most of city’s major tourist attractions.
Without doubt, Bordeaux is a town that has more than its fair share of charms and opportunities. Its numerous historical monuments, which bear witness to the city’ rich and varied past, have become the driving force behind Bordeaux’s new found cultural vitality. Some of these sites should be absolute musts on your “to-do” list, such as the Place de la Bourse, the Tour de Pey-Berland, the Saint-Andre Cathedral and the iconic stone bridge. The Fruges-Le Corbusier house is also an intriguing venue to discover, albeit of a different style.
In addition giving you the chance to stroll and explore, the streets in the Saint Pierre area and the old town are great places to go if you want to sample Bordeaux’s culinary specialties, and savvy gourmets will delight in its numerous wine bars. Fine wine enthusiasts won’t want to miss out on a visit to the brand new Cite du Vin on the Quai de Bacalan, or the various wine tours of different vineyards on offer at the local Tourist Office. That should more than enough to convince you to set off and discover the pretty country villages of the Medoc region and its countless wine cellars.
