Holiday Rental House
Le Clos de la Treille is a two-bedroom self-catering apartment conveniently situated in 'Greater Bordeaux', on the way to the seaside (Arcachon) and at a stone throw from the Pessac-Leognan châteaux. The property is a former hunting lodge built in 1790 which we bought in 2011 . We renovated what remained of the former stables into a holiday apartment in 2014 and had it listed with the board of tourism as a “ Meublé de Tourisme *** ” ( Licence ID 944). The rental can accommodate 1 to 4/5 guests and is elder and child-friendly. Although you might have to share some of the 3800 yard2 ( 3200m2) garden with us , you will have your own secluded terrasse , roofed parking space, and barbecue.You will therefore only see us if you wish to ! The apartment is independent and separated from ...Le Clos de la Treille is a two-bedroom self-catering apartment conveniently situated in 'Greater Bordeaux', on the way to the seaside (Arcachon) and at a stone throw from the Pessac-Leognan châteaux.

The apartment is independent and separated from the main house by a stone wall and double door. It is fully equipped with dishwasher, washing – machine and dryer , microwave and traditional ovens , as well as a very larger boiler , quality mattresses and even British T.V. channels. There is no air conditioning but it is very well insulated . For your convenience , the rental is all inclusive ( 3 % occupancy tax , all the bills , cleaning on departure , bedding , ( beach) towels , liquid soap, shampoo etc; ) and your first breakfast is provided (but not cooked) free of charge. Do not hesitate to ask us for a detailed quotation as our rates depend on the length of your stay and the number of guests and are in some cases cheaper than what you will be automatically quoted on this website . The rental is also free for one child sleeping in a cot . Our property is situated in an urban yet very peaceful environment , within short walking distances to public transportation and a small shopping centre . A car is useful but not mandatory to visit Bordeaux and Arcachon . Young children will easily walk to a wooded area with a small playground and a 15 minutes' bus ride will enable teenagers to spend a day at the outdoor local swimming -pool. Why have we decided to let this apartment as we are already busy with two full -time jobs ? Obviously to cover some of our maintenance costs .But most importantly ,to practice foreign languages ( we are bilingual in English and fluent in Spanish and German) and introduce our two young children to other cultures . Lastly , Valérie comes from a family of Bordeaux -wine makers and enjoys giving insider tips into local culture . Au plaisir de vous rencontrer !

How to get there
We can send you a very detailed itinerary from the airport to our house so that you may avoid taking the ring road , always crowded on a Saturday . It takes between 10 and 15 minutes to get to our place from the airport through the back roads . The local train station ( Alouette France-2 kms away ) runs two to three times an hour into Bordeaux central train station as well as Arcachon ). We are located 100 yards away from a bus stop where you can catch a direct bus to Bordeaux historic area ( bus every 1O mns - 40 minute bus ride at peak time ). The end of tram B line , which runs into historic Bordeaux and along the Garonne river is located 1 mile away . You can park your car just outside the apartment .
