Bordeaux is a city of some 250,000 people located in southwestern France. The city is known for its wine trade from the surrounding famous vineyards and was for a long time known as the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ of France. A holiday apartment in Bordeaux Centre will see you right in the middle of this elegant and historic city. This area is where the elegance and culture of the 18th century centre mixes with the large student population to produce an exciting community. Your holiday apartment in Bordeaux Centre allows you to join that community and experience the city just as a local does. Indeed, your holiday accommodation in Bordeaux Centre offers an authentic travel experience much like couchsurfing in Bordeaux Centre but provides you with a far greater degree of comfort and privacy in your own room or apartment.
Exploring from your holiday apartment in Bordeaux Centre
When choosing a holiday apartment in Bordeaux you really could do no better than choose Bordeaux Centre. As mentioned above, the city was long referred to as the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ of French cities. This is largely because the city was hiding its beauty under years of neglect. This all changed in 2000 when the Centre area underwent a huge transformation, pedestrianising many boulevards, restoring buildings and introducing a new high-tech public transport system. These efforts transformed Bordeaux Centre and the area now forms the largest urban UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 18th century city centre is one of the best preserved and most complete in Europe and now attracts many film makers to its atmospheric streets.
Your perfect holiday accommodation in Bordeaux Centre
Bordeaux Centre is a perfect base, not just to admire the surrounding architecture, but also to take in some great local sights. Right on your doorstep is the Cathédrale Saint-André, which dates back almost 1,000 years. There are superb gargoyles and if you can manage to climb the 232 steps to the top of the tower, then the views are magnificent. The Esplanade des Quinconces is a magnificent 19th century square, at the heart of which is a beautiful fountain, dedicated to the Girondins, many of whom were executed during the French revolution.
Choosing another district in Bordeaux
Just a little to the north of the city centre, a holiday apartment in Le Bouscat is still close enough to be convenient for city centre attractions but has its own atmosphere. It is a quieter, pleasant suburb, with a lower rise, less urban feel. The well to do area feels much like a provincial French town, with a good selection of local bars and bistros. It is also very convenient for a stroll in the botanic gardens or a visit to the adjacent Natural History Museum. In the north of the district is Le Bouscat Hippodrome, where you can enjoy some great horse racing. For the most authentic accommodation, for less than the price of a standard hotel room, book your apartment in Bordeaux Centre or Le Bouscat now.
