A short walk to the Gare St Jean train station (5 m), tramway, car & bike rental, grocery store, restaurants and clubs. Perfectly for discovering Bordeaux by walking, biking, tramway. Close to the Atlantic Ocean beaches and St Emilion.
FALL BONUS: Voyagers can visit our Atelier le Loft art studio!


Our home was built in 1900 in the Biarritz Style, which was all the rage for weekend homes of the nouveaux riche. This historical architectural style includes: artisanal hand-crafted “rocaille” -- decorative sculpted “faux bois” that imitate beech and birch trees.

The story of rue du Mascaret:
The word “mascaret” is the name of the Atlantic Ocean “reflux tide”, a twice yearly event at the Spring Equinox and Fall Equinox, when the moon’s pull is greatest, when the incoming tide flows upriver in a tidal wave!! It’s a popular local event to watch the mascaret tide and its surfers from the shore of the Garonne River.

History of the home:
When we bought the Mascaret home in 2007, it was all black with windows and doors broken, and the garden piled high with trash. Both visual artists (our art studio is in the nearby Atelier le Loft), it was obvious that this was a historical home. Since then, we have lovingly renovated it little by little, improving something each year.

Opening the apt to the Airbnb community for the first time is a new adventure. Please be tolerant of debutant mistakes!

Why rent?
The latest renovations of the Mascaret home have been: restoring the hand-crafted “rocaille” by a certified historical artisan, and repainting the house exterior. Your participation in renting the apt will help immensely!

On its way to being 100% ecological:
The Mascaret home is on its way to becoming an “eco-lodge” -- renovation materials have been 99% organic, and the garden, cleaning, and washing products are all organic and bio-degradable.

The space:
The 50m2 (450 sq ft) 2 bedroom apartment has been renovated with the simplicity of the beach cottage style, and it’s naturally cool in summer with “French air conditioning” -- naturally insulating thick walls, and keeping windows and shutters closed to the sun on hot summer days. With windows front and back, there is a good airflow and natural light.

The Mascaret garden:
The natural garden 80m2 (720 sq ft) is a delight all day long, and in the evening for "apero" cocktails and dinner in the garden, since the sky stays light well after sunset.
This is an organic natural garden with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers. In 2007 nothing would grow, but we've improved it year by year with compost, and let natural endemic "weeds" mix with plantations. You are welcome to use the aromatic herbs and edible flowers in cooking or to make sachets: oregano, mountain savory, sage.


Upstairs neighbors:
The 2nd floor apartment is rented to two students.

Everyone shares the garden. The main entrance is by the front gate on the street, through the garden, to both apartments.

The ground floor front terrace and the tiny courtyard in back go with the ground floor apartment.


At the apartment, there are: Bordeaux City Maps, Maps of the Bordeaux/Aquitaine region, a notebook with: House Rules, Information about Bordeaux, Activities. Also - Le Petit Futé guidebook to Bordeaux.

Day Trip #1: St Emilion:
From the Gare St Jean, take the train to St Emilion (34 min, train stops at the foot of the hilltop village) and spend the day visiting wine chateaux and the sights of one of the most charming historical villages in France.

Day Trip #2: Atlantic Beach Arcachon / Pyla:
Take the inexpensive regional train or bus from Gare St Jean to Arcachon (40 min) or to the Dune of Pyla on the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the town, eat oysters with a local white wine, go to the beach, have dinner at a restaurant on the beach, listen to a jazz or rock band, and come back to Bordeaux by train before midnight.

I will be available by phone or text for any questions and requests all day and early evening, and available for emergencies 24/7. If needed, I or a friend will come over personally to help.
Please let me know if I can provide information or be helpful in any way before your arrival and/or throughout your stay!

We enjoyed our stay in beautiful Bordeaux and at Patrick's house. The city is amazing, and Patrick's place is really handy for the tram into town, and we frequently just walked in and back to the centre. We found some very nice local bars, and a nice restaurant, just yards from the house, and a wide variety of restaurants within easy walking distance, just a little further. The place is particularly handy for arrival and departure, being so close to the train station, though this has the drawback that, as with many areas close to train stations in France, there are a number of prostitutes in the nearby streets. This didn't cause us any difficulties for us,we weren't threatened in any way but it might make a single traveller feel uneasy. We felt the house was good value for money.
