We booked apartment 3 because of its situation in the heart of the winelands and the Tripadvisor reviews. The apartment was probably the best equipped self catering we have used either in France or Italy and everything was very clean, however a few small but important issues let it down. Firstly it states that the apartment has air conditioning, yes it does.....in the living room but the bedroom only has a floor standing fan and with temperatures @ 30 degrees it was barely enough. Secondly, to get to apartments 3 & 4, 38 stairs have to be climbed so a large suitcase is difficult to manage. Thirdly,we stayed in September when world events were changing on a daily basis & the television did not have one English language channel ( nor a sports channel to the disappointment of my hubby) . Car parking was not as easy as we had hoped either. On a positive note we enjoyed being able to walk to the market( we did use the barbecue ) and the excellent local restaurants.

“Apartment that has it all”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a spacious, beautiful apartment with everything that you need! The kitchen has all the utensils you need to cook a meal. We stayed there with our two young children and it was extremely comfortable. The owner has a good selection of DVD's for both children and adults and we enjoyed making use of the braai in the lovely courtyard, where you are allowed to pick fresh herbs.

We stayed here for six nights with our one-year-old, the apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated, obviously recently renovated and very well maintained. The kitchen and the whole apartment are very well equipped, everything we could have needed was there. Blaye is lovely, the Citadelle is amazing and is well worth visiting, even more than once. It is helpful to have a car there, there are lots of nice places within easy reach, for example local wineries which gave us a very warm welcome. Parking is very easy. If you are in Blaye on a Wednesday or Saturday morning, go to the market and pick up some great fresh food to cook in your kitchen or on the barbecue at Chez Simon.

“Lovely homely guest apartment”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Tricky to find and get to but a well appointed apartment with everything needed for our few days here. Perfect for walking to markets on Market day and a stroll across to discover the Citadel and all it's offerings. We used to outdoor area to take our lunch out to one day but there's also a cosy little lounge with a fireplace that would be well used in winter months I imagine.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Chez Simon is THE perfect place to stay in the Bordeaux Region.
The one bedroom apartment was tastefully decorated, as was the whole building.
The furnishings and appliances were of the highest standards which made for our perfect week sojourn.
Booking was easy, Frank (the owner) was extremely helpful and the building is exactly as portrayed on the web.
Blaye itself was a good village with markets on Wednesday & Saturday, good Leclerc supermarket and close & easy access to the ferry and well positioned to tour the many vineyards.

I have been moved to write my first ever review given how brilliant Chez Simon was! The booking process was straight forward, the apartment was clean, spacious and had everything you could ask for, and the location was perfect to explore the area.

Highly recommended!
