Apartement for rent only in July and August (see calendar for availabilities).
Two bedrooms available: one bedroom has 1 double bed, the other bedroom one single bed. There is a sofa bed for one person, kitchen, bathroom. 4 people maximum.
We also have a wooden baby bed with bars which can be used by a child up to about 4 and half year-old if you remove the bars (our 4 year-old son use it when he sleeps in our bedroom)
You 'll enjoy staying in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Bordeaux, in the historical district, near cafes, restaurants, shops, independent film theater and museums/galleries.
It will take you 3 minutes by foot to reach the 3 mile-long Garonne riverbank promenade: people gather there to walk, bike, run or simply sit in front of the water. This is one of our favorite places in town.
We will be away on vacation so it will be difficult for us to give information and support, so we prefer independant travelers.
Of course, we will be available in case of emergency.
About heat in the summer:
ON HOT / SUNNY DAYS, you should open the windows before 8AM to let in the cool air, and then leave them closed until the night (to prevent the hot air outside from coming in). Also you MUST close the shutters until about 4PM otherwise the apartment will get hot.
We will provide 2 fans (as air conditionner can't be installed in old buildings in Bordeaux), but we ask our guests to please to do the above actions (that French people do) to prevent heat built-up.
None of the people who stayed with us cared about noise, but we know some people do, so we prefer to give information about it below :
Please note that the center of Bordeaux is lively, especially in the summer and including at night.
One bedroom (double bed) is facing the court yard so it is quiet.
The other bedroom (one single bed) has double-glazed windows but if you are very sensitive to noise, you might still hear some noise, mosty if people are screaming in the streets. Otherwise, you'll be fine.
However, the living room - where one person can sleep on the sofa bed (made to sleep on) has single glazed windows so she/he will hear some noise in the night, so please bring ear plug if you are sensitive to noise.
--> Please read house rules below
We are a friendly couple with a 4 year-old son, enjoying so much living in the center of Bordeaux!
We both lived several years abroad and before we had our son, we used to rent our spare bedroom to travelers. Now we rent our comfortable apartment to travelers when we are out-of-town !
Enjoy your stay in Bordeaux !
