A stunning B&B that effortlessly mixes old and new. Casa Blanca is located in a beautiful 200-year-old building on an attractive street in Les Chartrons neighbourhood in Bordeaux, only a few minutes’ walk from the public garden. There are five guest rooms, all very large in size, and three of these have some form of private outside spaces (one has a little balcony, another a roof top, and the third a terrace). The decor is incredibly stylish throughout. Breakfast is served in the dining room each morning and there’s the option to book ahead for seasonal dinner.
La Maison Des Vignes is a real home away from home staying with Patrick and Hèléne. Their suites are very generous in size with little touches throughout. Breakfast is either entirely homemade or sourced locally with an extensive range of jams and pastries. Located in the Saint-Michel district, all main attractions are within easy walking distance.
A stunning boutique hotel meets bed and breakfast. Le Clos d’Emile looks as smart from the outside in one of Bordeaux’s many chic little streets as it does within. The interiors in every room have clearly been given love and thought. There are five guest rooms available here and each morning free buffet breakfast is served in the dining area. A well-placed choice for those wanting an intimate and relaxing accommodation.
An arty B&B in the heart of Bordeaux. Les Chambres d’Art offers two guest rooms for travellers, each equipped with a kettle and hot drink choices, TV, wine glasses, a corkscrew (an attentive touch) and homemade breakfast each day served in the dining room. Les Chambres d’Art regularly hosts exhibitions by local artists, so be sure to see if your stay coincides with one. The garden and terrace spaces are particularly attractive and a real bonus for a city stay.
An exquisite guesthouse in the heart of Bordeaux. If you’re looking for a really special occasion, “Les étoiles” room is a bedroom under the stars, literally. Located at the top of the house, this room has a glass roof so you can watch the stars. There’s also a private terrace with swimming pool. The other rooms are also gorgeous, as is the breakfast served daily. La Course even has its own wine cellar for tastings.
La Maison Odeia is bathed in so much natural light it’s easy to forget you’re inside. This beautifully thought out B&B by Camille and William is furnished to a high standard with modern Scandinavian decor. Located on a residential street with an attractive terrace and jacuzzi, this property lends itself well for those wanting to be close to the city centre but without the noise. The owners also offer parking in their garage at €10 a day.
An ideal spot if you’re looking to stay just a little outside of the main drag but still within leisurely walking distance. Meticulous attention is given to each detail at Villa Desvaux de Marigny, from bedrooms to breakfast and the owners are incredibly helpful with assisting in points of interest. Parking is available, too – a real bonus for those travelling to Bordeaux by car.
