France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Bordeaux
Lovely House In A Quiet Neighbourhood
Our home (1500 sq ft) is in Talence, a town bordering Bordeaux, 40 minutes' drive from the nearest ocean beaches.
We have direct access to the centre of Bordeaux by tramway (a 15-minute trip).
We are located in a very quiet neighbourhood.
Our house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The first bedroom has a double bed, the second one has two single beds, and the last one has one single bed.
We also have a separate studio at the far end of the garden, with another bathroom and a sofa bed where two persons can sleep.
In the house, you will find a kitchen with many domestic appliances, but no dishwasher (sorry!).
There is also a living and dining room, and a playroom with many toys.
A computer is available, with a fast internet access (and WiFi).
If you like movies or music,
we have hundreds of DVDs and CDs, as well as a piano and a harpsichord.
A 2003 ford Focus Clipper is available for exchange, as well as two adult-size bikes and one child-size bike.
Bordeaux has been officially included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites as of 28 June 2007. This distinction recognises the beauty and unity of style of the architectural heritage of Bordeaux.
