General description

  • Main home
All of the interior photos are of my flat or building and all exterior photos have been taken on daily walks and are maximum 5 minutes from out flat!

The flat itself is a charming apartment in the old hyper-center of Bordeaux (on the narrow street pictured) just next to the river. Third floor of a 4 story, old stone building. Quiet but near all of the bars and restaurants. 1 bedroom, 60m2. Nothing fancy but clean and enough space to enjoy as a couple even with the dogs. Some scratches on the paint on the walls from dog stretching but a nice, comfortable, clean flat. A lot of light with high ceilings and big windows facing north and south. Other buildings "en face" and the bedroom window looks out on a private courtyard (no access so no noise). Wifi, bathtub, toilette separate, parquet, washing machine, dish washer, fully equipped kitchen with traditional espresso machine. Saint-Pierre (the best, most beautiful) quartier.

My two weimaraners are well known in the area and very social. They are welcome to accompany you on terraces (see photos for terraces just next to the flat) and especially in our local Irish pub where they know everyone. VERY cuddly and sporty. Need to be taken out 2/3 times a day (2x 30 min. to 1 hour and 1 X 2.5+ hours to run). For their long outing they can play ball at the dog park, on the other side of the river or in one of the many woods accessible via public transportation (boat, tram, bus). For the others, we are two minutes from a walk on the quais and gardens (pictured) and can also accompany you on terraces as a walk. They are pretty sensitive to the heat so need lots of water and have a bit less energy for mischief during the summer months!

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 dogs
Two lovely Weimaraners. Very energetic. Need to be taken out three times a day (maximum 6 hours indoor after long runs). Need to have safe off the lead time which can take a good 2.5 hours and the two other walks of about an hour. But after that they are calm and sleep. The other two outings are for sniffing about the city or on the riverside. Good on terraces and in the pub. Very social!

We luckily have calm neighbours (1st floor and 4th floor) and an Airbnb downstairs, so our flat is peaceful with spurts of noise from the street below, but not much. We are about 1 minute from the river so picnicking, running, wandering is all very easy to access. Next to the bridge as well so the calmer side of the river is only a 10 minute walk. We are in the historical centre as well so there is much to explore! We are also near all forms of public transportation. The dogs are used to taking it (even the boat) and are well received. Great city, Bordeaux!

Comfort and Luxury

  • Traditional
  • Book library
This is not a luxurious home. The walls are covered with beautiful african materials and a few antiques, but we are simple. Even though it is a nicely laid out 60m2 with a full kitchen, it is the location of the flat that makes it a French dream.

Tourism and Leisure

  • City
  • Beach
  • Museum
  • Zoo
  • Cinema
  • Theater / Opera
Just google "Bordeaux" and you will understand how lovely this region is. ...Also, really good wine is very inexpensive!
