Bordeaux Golden Triangle one-bedroom apartment is bright and airy, with high ceilings and historic details, yet with a contemporary flair. The floor area is 592 square feet (55 square meters). The apartment building was constructed in the 19th century in classic Paris Haussmann style, and has been adapted for modern living with a state-of-the-art kitchen and bathroom.
The furniture is comfortable and well designed, and an eclectic collection of antique and modern objects and artworks are on display. The bedroom sleeps two people in a Queen sized bed on good quality linen. The owner is a keen chef, and has equipped the kitchen with the latest appliances and excellent knives and utensils. Appliances include a dishwasher, Nespresso machine and Moulinex blender. The bathroom has a shower over the bath.
It is on the first floor, (American second floor), and faces onto a quiet street. In warm weather you’ll enjoy opening the three large French windows onto the balcony. The bedroom is at the back of the building, so it’s tranquil and not overlooked. From the bedroom you can see trees and old buildings and a small courtyard below.
This apartment gains its name from the location in the famed historic “Golden Triangle” district of Bordeaux. From here it’s only a short walk to the main sights of the city. In the next street, Rue Gallien, are a multitude of excellent restaurants, (some boasting Michelin star chefs), and specialist food shops.
If you would like to learn French, one of the best language schools, Alliance Francaise, is in the same street as the apartment.
At the top of the road is the large Meriadeck shopping center, with a large supermarket and many major chain stores. Also nearby is the delightful Place St. Seurin, with restaurants and an organic market every Friday morning.
Also nearby is a multiscreen cinema with many films in English and the Grand Theater of Bordeaux, which offers a range of classical music and dance performances in an extraordinary 18th century setting. The riverside quays, with their weekend markets, are 15 minutes’ walk away.
Transport is easily available, with buses from Place Gambetta and the tram from Cours de l’Intendance, just 5 minutes’ walk away.
Parking is available at a choice of parking stations a short walk from the apartment.

What our guests say about Bordeaux Golden Triangle
Light & warm in every way
Magnificent and quiet location
A big shopping centre with an Auchan hypermarket, several smaller shops and a bakery are within a 10 minute walking distance around the apartment, so it was easy for us to get fresh croissants or chocolatines in the morning or to do our big shopping in the afternoon and carry it all home even without a car. For most of the time we left our car parked in a garage at Place Tourney, about 10-15 minutes walk away.
Overall, we couldn’t have wished for a better place for our 2-week stay, we could have easily stayed for longer without getting bored or feeling homesick, so that says a lot. I can absolutely recommend Suzanna, Charlotte and the apartment and would love to return any time again!
