An exceptional apartment in Bordeaux

La Terrasse à Bordeaux is one of the relatively few apartments available for holiday rental in the heart of the ancient and historic centre of Bordeaux. More than that, it is the only apartment we know of that has a wonderful terrace large enough to dine on or simply take in the fabulous view of the river, the ancient Porte de Bourgogne and Napoleon's Ponte de Pierre - the bridge that took his troops to Paris.

Modern comfort in an historic city.

A majority of our visitors are looking for an apartment to rent while exploring the Bordeaux region and usually with an emphasis on discovering the wines that have made the area world famous. Wine tourism is a huge industry and attractive apartments for holiday rental are hard to find. At some times of the year there is little or no accommodation within 50 kilometres of the city - so plan ahead and book early!

Our apartment's World Heritage listed staircase

Bordeaux's historic centre has been revitalised in the last few years and is now one of the biggest pedestrian precincts in Europe - yet compact enough to be visited on foot. In the area adjacent to our apartment - La Terrasse à Bordeaux- are wonderful cobbled streets with some of the best restaurants and bars as well as an open-air food market and antique and bric-a-brac market on weekends.

Pont de Pierre seen from apartment terrace

The Porte de Bourgogne sits at the end of the Victor Hugo Avenue, where once one of the city's gates stood. To the left of our apartment we have the Quartier de la Rousselle, with its beautiful old houses, at our right ( a one minute walk away) we have the Quarter Saint-Michel with its amazing cathedral and directly in front of our terrace we have the La Garonne river and the famous Pont de Pierre . For a lot more information on what Bordeaux has to offer please visit our Bordeaux Weblog.

The apartment has WiFi internet access, a selection of board games, DVDs, music and TV. For the wine connoisseur there is a wine decanter and filter! The photograph at the top of the page and the small one at the side will give you a pretty good idea of the spectacular view from our apartment terrace at sunset.
