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 guests and is elder and child-friendly.

The apartment is independent and separated from the main house by a stone wall and double door. It is fully equipped with a 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 . The rental is inclusive of the use of portable WIFI . 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 contact us prior to booking if you have any questions or wish to bring your own house linen so that we may lower the quotation . The rental is free for one child sleeping in a cot ( which we can provide ). 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 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 !
