Smart 2-bed Apartment in central Bordeaux, France
We are Richard and Kate and are both actively retired. We have travelled extensively and would be happy to exchange for one month or for shorter trips in Europe. We are open to offers of exchange and had a successful three-month exchange 4 years ago between New Zealand and England. Currently we are looking for a one month exchange in the South Island of New Zealand for Feb or March 2023. Kate is also a Kiwi and has family in Nelson in the South Island.
Leaving behind our home in North Yorkshire for a while, we are now living in central Bordeaux. We have a two-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a heritage building, in the heart of Bordeaux. W We offer a large and comfortable designer living area, opening onto a small balcony that overlooks the lively street below. We have a fully stocked and fitted open-plan modern kitchen, two double bedrooms with large wardrobe space. Our one bathroom has a shower over the jacuzzi bath (with complimentary disco lights for atmosphere).
Bordeaux is ideal for a short city break and we would be happy to exchange in 2023 for short city breaks elsewhere in Europe, including Sweden, Norway, Spain, Italy, Corsica or Sicily. Probably best to google things to do here, but the opportunities are enormous... walking, river trips, restaurants, cycling around town or whizzing around on those electric scooters.
Our apartment is situated two minutes from the Grand Theatre, mouth-watering restaurants and affordable cafes. We are close to fabulous shops as well as the Rue Saint Catherine, which is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. Bordeaux is a World Heritage site and is the cleanest place I've ever lived. We are about 5 minutes walk from the River Garonne, the Sunday market on the quais and the historic and trendy Chartrons area. The Cathedral is about 8 minutes walk but... we have an amazing tram service here that runs effortlessly around the city and is very cheap. Bordeaux is amazing and we love it here.
There are three excellent Golf Clubs with a 10 minute drive. Rudding Park, Oakdale and Harrogate.
