Description: La Maison BordeauxCharming country house hotel or city centre guest house? A compromise between the two. Decorated in a contemporary style, extremely comfortable, and with a wine list featuring some great wines, this is a special place, in the heart of Bordeaux.
In the main house, a wide three storey building, you can find a bar on the lower level where great wines from Bordeaux or other areas are served by the glass or by the bottle along with regional "tapas". Bottles can be taken home.
At the end of the garden is an 18th Century stable block, decorated with a stone horse head, containing 3 bedrooms and a library with personal books available.
Type of rooms: La Maison BordeauxAll rooms are between 35 and 45 sq.m. in size.
In the main building, on the third floor, are two large double rooms, both with baths. The Diegue Room has a splendid view over the Palais Gallien, and the Apolline Room, an en-suite sitting room. The calm contemporary decoration partners with design and comfort. Each bedroom is more than 30 square meters and is insulated for sound.
Materials have been carefully selected and include oiled merbau, Corian, and anti-UV windows. A selection of the furniture has been designed by the owners. All beds are sized 180 and can be separated into twin beds.
In a separate building, the Jean Room has a shower, while the Clarisse and Celia rooms have bathrooms. They all overlook the garden.
