Glamour, style, history in a central townhouse in wine-soaked Bordeaux. Breakfast on the sun terrace; follow chic streets to UNESCO sites

Read guest comments

A delicious vintage townhouse in chic Chartrons, metres from the Garonne quays where Bordeaux's bourgeoisie once traded: 21st-century design blends with wine-soaked history. Playful bedrooms are named after famous local writers: glamorous Montaigne with bubble tub; red-brick, industrial-style Montesquieu; light-filled Mauriac. There are private terraces for tête-à-têtes, swish Italian bathrooms for pampering, a leafy sun terrace and a stylish stove-warmed salon for breakfast (crisp pastries, real hot chocolate). On a quiet lane, with covered parking, yet a stroll from restaurant-lined streets and World Heritage sites.

  • 'L'Esprit des Chartrons' is situated right in the heart of the Chartrons region, famous for its antiques shops and wine producers.
  • The historic town centre of Bordeaux is just 10 minutes walk away - perfect for a stroll along the picturesque 'Quais de Garonne' or an afternoon discovering the city's impressive 18th century architecture (listed as a UNESCO heritage site).

"Beautiful place, ensuite room with all modern & new facilities: separate w.c, walk in shower, room around basin for toiletries. Our room had an industrial theme but had the most comfortable bed & pillows (not always the case in France!). Fresh clean linens and fluffy white towels. Kettle, tea & coffee too. Room even had a private terrace and a communal lounge area with great gas log burner! All really tasteful and classy, with innovative & interesting design. Brigitte provided a super breakfast and the best coffee of our trip! Plus parking on site and in central Bordeaux...a fabulous find! "

"Beautifully converted building with separate en-suite rooms and situated in a quaint part of town about 10 mins on the excellent & frequent tram service into the centre. The owner is a lovely lady who was very attentive and spent time telling us places to visit and to see. Breakfast was lovely, typically French and with several black and green teas to choose from (which were amazing) as well as the norm. Would definitely recommend it as a good place to explore"
