Top 25 Apartments in Bordeaux

Welcome to Bordeaux

Explore Bordeaux

Since sprucing up its 18th-century architecture and banning cars from the city centre, Bordeaux is ‘La Belle Endormie’ (Sleeping Beauty) no more. Bordeaux is home to over 70,000 students and one-third of the population are under 25. There is a burgeoning nightlife scene and since the quays of the Garonne River were overhauled, the public gardens and fountains are filled with chattering students during the summer months.

Where to Stay

Image of fields surrounding Bordeaux

Fantastic and lavish accommodation in Bordeaux is plentiful and ranges from vintage old apartment suites in the historic city centre to spacious and quaint beach houses in Lacanau along the Atlantic Coast. Bordeaux's grandeur can be fully appreciated in Triangle-d'Or, a central neighbourhood which 18th-century buildings call home. For something a bit more medieval side, book an apartment or a villa in the St Pierre district. Those looking for a peaceful getaway will be pleased with the calm atmosphere of the Chartrons quarter. For the complete opposite, book a property in the Saint Michel quarter which is by far the liveliest and most colorful area in Bordeaux. It offers reasonably priced food and drink from a variety of cultures.

Things to Do

Bordeaux is the world's major wine producer. If you enjoy Bordeaux wine, we highly recommend taking part in one of the daily wine tours on offer by Ophorus or another company. The best museums to check out are the Musee D'Art Contemporain for modern art and the Musee D'Aquitaine for ancient and Roman-era Bordeaux history. Bordeaux’s urban architecture is some of the best-preserved and culturally significant in all of France and accounts for more than 360 state-sanctioned historic monuments. Visitors can relax by going to for a walk along Les Quais, the riverside promenade along the Garonne river which twists right through Bordeaux and connects it with the Atlantic Ocean. It is also highly recommended to check out the historic Aquitaine Bridge.

Eating and Drinking

It is not hard to find good restaurants in Bordeaux, including restaurants which are suitable for every budget. Many options can be found on streets around Rue du Parlement St Pierre and Rue St Remi. Those looking for something a little more upmarket should head to Place de Parlement and towards Chartrons. Fresh seafood features predominately on menus due to the city’s close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. It can also be bought on riverside stalls. Visitors who have booked a self-catering apartment can also pick up fresh, local goods at Place des Grands-Hommes. It would be a shame to visit Bordeaux without sampling its world-famous wine. There are around 7,000 chateaux in the region producing several types of wine meaning that it shouldn’t be hard to find a bar, restaurant or cafe selling reasonably priced bottles.

Getting Around

Bordeaux is easily accessible with nearly 60 direct flights to Bordeaux-Merignac departing from the majority of Europe, not to mention Northern Africa. Once in the city, it is recommended to take advantage of the great public transportation system in place, especially the tram system, as having a car may prove to be a cumbersome experience in Bordeaux's winding, narrow, and traffic-jammed streets. Another great option is to use the bus system in Bordeaux, which offers a weekly pass for a price. Just be sure to avoid peak rush hours on the buses, which usually happen between 8 to 10AM and 4 to 7AM. Alternatively, as Bordeaux is very flat, it's a great idea to rent a bicycle from the city's VCUB bike sharing system and discover the treasures the city has to offer for yourself.
