House in sunny BORDEAUX, Southern France - Named the world’s best city, according to Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2017 list ! Voted European Top Destination in 2015 ! We are now Open for Summer 2017
Welcome to Bordeaux ! Maybe your next destination for unique sunny Vacations !
Bordeaux is world wide heritage of the UNESCO.
Due to its situation, climate, and "art de vivre", it is the city where most French people want to move and live in !!!
Many many things to do, visit and enjoy for all ages. This is an ideal destination if you want to enjoy stunning 18th century architecture, French gastronomy, waves from the Atlantic Ocean, typical and various french atmospheres and landscapes without spending hours driving around !
Wether you stay in town, travel Norh, East, West or South, you'll discover real diverse landscapes, and will experience totaly different things.
Nowhere does French art of living quite like Bordeaux and the countryside around. This quiet Garden of Eden region is stitched from dreamy chateaux, medieval towns, gourmet village bistros and Saturday-morning food markets, where sweet Gariguette strawberries and seasonal black truffles are as common as muck.
Our foodie region – 100% au naturel – has never been so alluring.
They used to call our city the ‘Sleeping Beauty’, but – though she’s hit the snooze button a few times – Bordeaux is now wide awake and ready for action. The new LGV Sud-Ouest line, due for completion in mid- 2017, connects the city with Europe’s high- speed train network and cuts travel time from Paris to just two hours.
The recently opened Cité du Vin continues the impressive redevelopment of the Garonne riverfront with a state-of-the-art wine-lovers’ experience, and the city’s gastronomic revolution keeps building on its own success.
Our house is located in downtown, next to a 14 ha park.
It's a very comfortable typical french 1930's stone house with 3 bedrooms. Fully renovated in 2009 ! With all the appliance you need.
From our home, you are less than 30 mn drive from the most famous Bordeaux Vineyards, less than 45 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. We are close to the Bassin d'Arcachon, the Dordogne and the Pays Basque regions... and 2 and 1/2 hrs from San Sebastian in Spain...
Our house is right in the center of the city. So everything is accessible by foot.
Bus stops also located 50 meters away. Train station and airport 30 mn away.
