The Experience

This 19th-century townhouse has been furnished with sophisticated attention to detail, yet at the same time is welcoming and unpretentious. Lucie, the manager is here all day – if you arrive after hours you’ll let yourself in – and she’ll happily recommend where to go and what to eat.

Help yourself to wine and snacks in the kitchen, snuggle by the fire in the gorgeous living room or ask about wine tastings in the cellar downstairs. The rooms are all different but fabulously fun: one small but sassy with a nautical theme, another with a draped four-poster bed and huge bathtub, a rooftop room with a private swimming pool.

Breakfast is served on small tables in the art nouveau conservatory or on the terrace: freshly-squeezed orange juice, fruit salad, yogurt, local jam, all sorts of eggs, bacon, cheese and charcuterie. There are countless good restaurants surrounding the house and you can borrow a bike or explore the city on foot or by tram. For adventures further afield there’s the wine town of St-Émilion (a 45-minute drive), the stunning coastline of the Dune du Pilat and the seaside town of Arcachon (an hour).

An utterly fabulous base from which to visit Bordeaux. Lucie is bursting with information on what to do and see. Its also a heavenly place just to chill out and relax, curled up on the green sofa in the gorgeous sitting room, sipping a glass of Bordeaux.

The neighbourhood

Bordeaux has a wealth of history, architecture and culture but retains a warm and laid-back attitude - as Lucie says, Bordelais locals take the notion of Carpe Diem seriously. You're in walking distance of the historic quays of the Garonne and a number of museums, including the Musée des Beaux-Arts, the Musée d'art contemporain and La Cité du Vin wine museum.
