In a typical Bordeaux style, with its buildings and stalls from the end of the XVIII and beginning of the XIX centuries, the Saint-Seurin neighbourhood has the precious advantage of being beautiful, quiet and residential, yet offering at the same time all the desirable amenities and conveniences.
Less than 100 meters from your door you will find bakeries, grocery stores, pharmacies, banks and more, and another 200 meters will bring you to the "Place des Martyrs de la Resistance" which offers all the services and stores you could dream of. The "Place" is lined with gourmet fine food stores, restaurants, cafés and antique dealers. One of the oldest cultural buildings in Bordeaux is located here; the VI century "Basilique Saint Seurin" houses a paleochretienne necropolis that is now a fascinating underground museum. The "Basilique" is surrounded by a leafy park perfect for walks in the shade, but also for family games in the park's playground.Guest Access

The house is close to the many shops and stores at the Bordeaux Meriadeck shopping center (a 5 minute walk away), and also to public transport (bus 100 meters, tramway 10 minutes walk, taxis). There is also plenty of street parking should you choose to have a car. In the Saint-Seurin neighbourhood itself you will find a sports center and gym with Olympic swimming-pool, and tennis players will be glad that the popular Villa Primerose club is very close to the apartment. Take public transport to the beautiful "Parc Bordelais", perfect for a family outing, within 10 minutes (or walk there in 20 minutes), as well as to the Aquitaine museum and the CAPC (Modern Art Museum).
Ideally located towards the west of the city, the house is only 15 minutes from Bordeaux's "Parc des Expositions" and "Palais des Congrès", and very close to Bordeaux-Mérignac International Airport (from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the traffic). From this exceptional and convenient location you are free to explore the celebrated Bordeaux region, and lovely Atlantic coast. The first vineyards (Pessac-Léognan) are only 20 minutes from the house, in France's most famous wine region, and the fine sand dunes and beaches of the Atlantic Ocean just a short 60 kilometer drive away.Other Things to Note
