Staying in Maria's house is just a home away from home. We had super days in this house full of light, this summer. Our two girls (6 and 4) enjoyed the lots of toys and were happy to explore the city on their cool steps which made them feel like home too. The park is just around the corner and we'd loved the recommendations of Maria to explore Rue Notre Dame. It is a lovely city that perfect fits to couples with young kids. We also enjoyed a trip to the sea, had a great lunch at CoorNiche, which gave us a extraordinaire view/spot on Dune de Pyla. Only downside to travel to coast in august, is that it can be very crowded. We definitely recommend this spot to have a relaxed, cosy and nice stay with your family in Bordeaux!

Maria's house is just beautiful, as you can see from the pictures. Large, full of light...and toys!, located in a nice and convenient area. I stayed there with my mother and 2 kids and we had such a WONDERFUL stay. Maria even lent us 2 strollers to go around and was a perfect and prompt host even if she was away. We all hope to go back to Bordeaux soon and stay at rue de la Course residence again!! Mariangela

The pictures suggested a dream house, and so it was! The charm of the old tiles, (secured) stairs and stone walls, the large and bright rooms, the perfect blend of French and Nordic design. Our 5-year-old and 18-month-old boys had a great time during those 8 days, playing with the numerous toys and running around in the little garden. Maria was very nice and easily reachable, and kindly made strollers available to us, big plus when you want to travel light. We also had the lovely surprise to find local goodies upon our arrival, making us feel welcome straight away! The house is very well located, in a quiet neighborhood but near the Jardin Public, a huge park with a carrousel and Guignol theater, and walking distance from the Garonne docks. The center is only 10-minute away by tram. Bordeaux is full of kid-friendly places and nice shops and restaurants. The weather was also nice enough for us to go the Cap Ferret and Pyla dune, both beautiful and definitely worth the trip (around 1-hour car drive each). So a very nice holiday destination in France and a highly recommended place to stay!

Incredible location and house exceeded expectations. It was perfect for our multi-generational family. The owners were easy to work with, so friendly and were willing to go above and beyond foe special requests.

Bordeaux, South of France

Treasure hunts, safari treks and wine

Beautiful Bordeaux is much admired for its wine and thankfully its vineyards are well set up for families with plenty of options to entertain the kids while you test the city’s famous grape juice, including iPod tours and treasure hunts, hands-on blending sessions and safari treks spotting local wildlife amid the vines. In the city itself, there are so many places to play, from skateparks and riverside sports facilities to cycle paths and the Miroir d’Eau, a reflective pool opposite the Place de la Bourse.
