Interaction with Guests
I will be very pleased to greet you and give you many advice about things to do and to see in Bordeaux and also many tips about where to eat and drink.
Welcome in the "Quartier Saint Pierre" located between the Cathedral, the River, Quartier Saint Paul and the Grand Theatre. In my opinion, it's one of the best place for a short stay in Bordeaux.
You are in the middle of the lovely historical city-center (rated UNESCO World Heritage).
Lot of students and young couples live there. The whole area is pedestrianized and full of charming squares and mazy narrow pretty streets - all very lively and full of little boutiques, bars, terraces and restaurants. The quartier Saint Pierre is basically the perfect area to wander, socialize and enjoy an espresso or a glass of wine on sunny terraces.
