La Maison Bord'Eaux
La Maison Bord’eaux has been providing its special brand of welcome since 2003.
Created by Brigitte Lurton with a view to establishing a special place to stay in Bordeaux, La Maison Bord’eaux is an out of the ordinary hotel. It may now have new owners in Carole and Pierre Lurton but it remains true to its founding principles: it remains one of Bordeaux’s great Boutique Hotels.
The 18th century building which hosts it, is located near the oldest building in town: the Palais Gallien, the Roman ruins of a circus. It is also very close to the beautiful Public Garden, a fresh air parenthesis in the city, an about ten minutes walking distance from the grand Theatre and Place Gambetta, the best shopping area where one can find the most elegant French labels.
La Maison itself is made up of 2 buildings, surrounding an Italianate garden. The main building comes with a rather austere façade, and accommodates 11 rooms, the wine bar and restaurant. The old stables holds a further three bedrooms and a comfortable library where hosts can relax reading and listen to music.
Whatever the room in main house, all are colourful, playful and adorned with contemporary paintings (Toni Soulié, Marc Latamie, Axel Arno, Richard Cerf, Claude Vialla etc.) and furniture (Martine Bedin, Jean Nouvel, Ingo Maurer…). The result is a hotel big on personality, character and fun.
As should always be the case (but it necessarily isn’t) the guest was the number one priority when designing the La Maison Bord’eaux. Rooms have free Internet access, satellite TV, loud speakers in bathroom, come with slippers and bathrobes - and a kettle.
But above all beds are extremely comfortable, and come with clever lighting: one can read in bed without disturbing one’s partner, for example. Ground glass bathroom sliding doors let the light come through but privacy is maintained
La Maison Bord’eaux also offers 1 seminar room where business people find a private and esthetic place for high quality meetings. Vineyards and golfs are the main attractive touristic activities in the region, and wine buffs can find in La Maison Bord’eaux a perfect stay with private cellar visits, dinners at the Château, or a wine Tasting menu, green fees at special rates etc.
La Maison also offers private guided city tours departing from the hotel, beauty care and spa in the best place in town.
In short, a fun, vivacious sort of place right in the centre of the unofficial wine capital of the world.
Please Note: Two rooms are located on the third floor and there is no lift. If this causes you difficulties, pleased advise. Additionally, standard rooms come with shower. Superior Rooms come with bath.
