I live in a contemporary apartment in a six story building in a secure complex north of Bordeaux center. Features as follows:
-one bedroom apartment (double bed) on ground floor with loads of light; entire side of apt is floor to ceiling glass.
-large, enclosed terrasse
-apt quiet, little to no street noise, friendly neighbors
- sofa bed in sitting room for extra guests
-secure, large, well cared for complex with grassy areas, walkways and nice plantings; key necessary to enter complex
-secure underground parking
-tram stop three minutes walk; maximum time to city center 15 minutes. Two buses to city center.
- adjacent to shady park, accessible from complex without going onto street
-child friendly complex with adjacent playground
- lake across street with beach with lifeguards, large grassy picnic areas, wide path to walk around lake, off road bicycle paths, kayak and sail board rental nearby
- ten minute walk, or two minutes drive, to large mall with all the usual shops, boutiques and restaurants (IKEA, LeRoy Merlin, Flunch, etc.) as well as a very large Auchan supermarket.
-two or three minutes walk to boulangerie, pizza restaurant, sushi shop, Italian restaurant, pharmacy, and others.
And best of all, a very friendly, playful nine year old border collie that loves off leash walks and a lovely cat who is allowed outside during the day.
Dog needs walk two times a day. Only needs leash if crossing street. Dog and cat eat two times a day, morning and night
