Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Myself and 2 friends recently stayed at Fanny's during a weekend trip to Bordeaux. Situated right on Rue St. Catherine, we couldn't have asked for a more ideal location, or welcoming apartment (and host!) The apartment itself is beautiful and has everything you could possibly ask for, even a range of French DVDs should the rain happen upon you as it did us! Highly recommended, thank you Fanny!

  • My friend and I absolutely loved this apartment. If you are looking for an apartment right in the heart of town look no further! The location is perfect, with shops right on your door step and everything just a short walk away. Fanny's daughter let us into the apartment and was very lovely and helpful. The apartment itself is decorated wonderfully with a mix of modern meets retro with every amenity you could need. The beds are both very comfortable and there are roller shutters to block out light on the main floor which makes sleeping on the pull out bed perfect. The apartment has very good security with a metal gate barring the entrance to the building only opening with a special security tag. The apartment is on the top floor so make sure you're prepared to carry luggage up the stairs. Could not recommend this apartment more!

  • The stay at Fanny's place was exactly what we were hoping for as everything corresponds to the pictures shown. It is clean and tidy and you even have some coffee for the Nespresso machine available...:-) The location is just great, right in the city centre. The correspondence as well as check in was very relaxed and flexible.
    Our stay was not only so nice because of our success against FC Girondins :-), but Bordeaux is a beautiful city and Fanny's appartment a perfect place to get to know it.

    Thanks and cheers

  • We stayed in Fanny's apartment for 4 days. It is a lovely place and in a really great central location. Fanny was very helpful and the flat was a joy to stay in! It's got homely decorations and we could have stayed much longer. Thanks to Fanny for much for making our trip a great one. Would definitely go back!!

  • Such a great place to stay in Bordeaux! A cute place that really gave us a home away from home feel. It had everything that we needed during our 4 nights in Bordeaux. Thanks Fanny for a great place stay, we will be sure to book again next time we are in Bordeaux.

  • My girlfriend and me had an amazing stay at Fanny's beautiful apartment in the heart of Bordeaux. I guess you can't possibly live more central in this amazing city than in her apartment. Located right on Rue St. Catherine, you might expect to have a hard time sleeping during the weekend when all the locals go out, but no: It is really quiet up on the forth floor – if you don't want to be part of the action outside and just relax, it's no problem, the apartment is quiet and peaceful. And if you want to dive into Bordeaux' nightlife, you just step out of the door. We were really amazed of the lovely decoration and the efforts Fanny must have put into this place. The kitchen and bathroom are huge and absolutely clean, just like the rest of this beautiful apartment. The communication with Fanny was perfect as well, she responded instantly to all our problems and arranged everything in advance. Unfortunately, our stay was cut short due to personal problems, but Fanny was very obliging and we will definitely come back next year for a longer stay in Bordeaux. Thank you again, Fanny!

  • The apartment is really cute and interesting. It has pretty much everything you might need during your stay and is very clean. And, of course, the location is perfect - right on a main shopping street and within walking distance of most of Bordeaux's attractions. The only potential issue is that the stairs take a little bit of getting used to and are not ideal for small children or people with reduced mobility, etc. In general, however, the place was really great and Fanny was very nice.

  • I've been staying at these apartment for 7 days. It was a great time! First of all it is the centre of Bordeaux and all restaurant are very close to the flat. There are you can find all what you need in the apartment. Also when you go downstairs from your bedroom in the morning you can enjoy the landscape and in the evening it is a good point for watching the sunset. Also I want to say thanks for Fanny,who met me at the airport after a long trip! ))))

  • Très bon séjour. Une prestation qui tient ses promesses. Un très bel appartement, très bien équipé, extrêmement bien situé ! Un très bon accueil de Fanny qui a été très disponible. Seul petit point à avoir en tête, comme la connexion internet se fait via un relais wifi le débit est un peu faible. Sinon tout est vraiment parfait ! Une adresse à retenir !

    April 2014
  • Très bel appartement au coeur de Bordeaux. Très calme malgré une rue commercante. Je n'ai pas vu Fanny, mais nous avons conversé ensemble par mail et par téléphone. Je suis arrivé tardivement à l'appartement et c'est sa fille qui m'a accueilli.
    L'appartement est très bien situé à 5mn à pied du tramway.

Je suis mariée, mère au foyer et maman de 3 filles qui ne sont maintenant plus des enfants mais de jeunes adultes. Je vis à l'année sur le Bassin d'Arcachon et plus précisément à Andernos les Bains. Petite ville au bord du Bassin où il fait bon vivre et non loin de cette belle ville de Bordeaux. J'aime la nature et la mer et tous les endroits où le temps s'écoule paisiblement sans le stress des grandes agglomérations. J'aime particulièrement marcher, partir à l'aventure. Aussi l'an dernier je suis allée en Irlande faire de la marche avec une amie. Nous avons parcouru ce beau pays aux paysages magnifiques et envoûtants. J'aime aller à la rencontre des gens et partager mes expériences de voyages. Récemment je suis allée au Portugal avec mon mari. Nous avons découvert la beauté et le charme de Lisbonne. Ce fut une belle escale que je recommande à tout ceux qui souhaite se dépayser! C'est aussi au cours de mes différents voyages que j'en profite pour peaufiner mon anglais mais je préfère bien évidemment communiquer en français! Aussi je serai heureuse de vous accueillir à Bordeaux dans ce petit appartement mezzanine que nous avons complètement refait en 2012.
