Lovely House In A Quiet Neighbourhood

Our Home

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.

More about this property

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.
