About Nathaniel Washington

I am an American and I am Pacs-ed with Patrice, a medical doctor here in Bordeaux. We enjoy antiques, fine arts, and the ocean. We also enjoy visiting the capital cities of Europe. We look forward to meeting people from around the world and providing them with a memorable stay in Bordeaux.

Nathaniel Washington purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Nathaniel Washington chose Bordeaux

This apartment has stone walls which have two niches carved into them in the dining area. When me and my partner saw that it really sealed the deal for us. The apartment is also very spacious and that makes it easy to move around and enjoy the space with the furniture that we really love.

What makes this apartment unique

The 9m2 bathroom has to be the biggest plus to this apartment. There is a large claw-foot tub with a large shower. Two people can easy get ready for dinner at a nice restaurant without getting in each other's way.

Fantastic property and fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was excellent, where it was situated, the size, vacilites, layout, cleanliness. Nathaniel was a great host. He gave us the lowdown on restaurants and shops close by and places to see. He has great passion for his beautiful apartment and his city. We will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.

Stylish apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 nights at the beautiful Monnoye. Very conveniently located, close walk into town, but nice quiet square to come home to. Apartment has all all amenities you could need, although we ate out each night.

Lots of local bars & restaurants to walk to. We were also able to take advantage of a secure, locked,parking space across the road, excellent for us , as we had a car full of items.

Nathaniel was a helpful, friendly host, with lots of local information available on restaurants, places to visit, wine tours etc.

We would be very happy to recommend this property. We had an extremely comfortable stay, in a beautifully stylish apartment.

Fabulous apartment in Bordeaux

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was gorgeous and very well equipped for our needs. Nathaniel and Patrice were extremely helpful with their suggestions for restaurants and what to see and do in Bordeaux. The location of the apartment was very convenient for getting around the city. We highly recommend this wonderful apartment! (If you have a car, be sure to take the garage option - there is very little on-street parking in Bordeaux.)

A wonderful and luxury apartment from a bygone era!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week over Easter 2017 and from beginning the booking in February we had excellent service from Nathaniel!! The apartment was beautifully ready and in a great location. We had champagne and flowers ready as well as an extra and we got picked up and returned to the airport by Nathaniel - this was a first class service.

We couldn't fault the apartment at all - very comfortable and perfectly equipped. It is very old and has lots of character but still has all the mod cons and a chic modern feeling mixed into the antiques! It is quite simply luxury! The area is very good as well and within 5 - 10 mins walk you can have everything you want - shopping bars restaurants etc - we walked and never took a taxi as it wasn't necessary.

Nathaniel and Patrice are fabulous hosts and they invited us to dinner as it was Easter Sunday so this was a treat as well. Nathaniel has a vast knowledge of Bordeaux and the apartment has plenty of books and leaflets re information on Bordeaux.

It was a truly great break for us as Bordeaux is really beautiful and has a lot to offer and our stay was made that much better by having a great place to stay with hosts that couldn't have been more inviting and accommodating.

We will be returning at some point for sure. Book it - you will love it!!

P.S 5 mins to a fantastic food market, 5 mins to St Michael's Square which was our favourite and 2 mins to 3 of the best restaurants with the best being La Tupina!! Oh also a really good Jazz bar only 2 mins away!

Superb experience

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was one of the best we have stayed in. The location could not have been better, the apartment was extremely well equipped and very comfortable and clean.

Nathaniel did everything to make us feel at home and gave us good advice about places to eat etc, he picked us up and dropped us back to the airport which made everything very easy.

We didn't book a wine tour with him but in hindsight and if we return I would definitely do this.

All in all we could not have had a better host or place to stay, all the best for any future projects. Hilary and Peter

General

Artists’ ateliers, antique shops, and historical monuments densely populate the area around the apartment. It is the area for those who are seeking 18th century architecture and cultural events within a stone’s throw of the front door. The apartment is located between Sainte Croix and Saint Michel right in the heart of the historic center.

Place Léon Duguit (Place de la Monnaie)

We are lucky to be located in this beautiful 18th century square. Just in front of us you will have a view of Hôtel de la Monnaie, the mint. This square is remarkable due to its pristine 18th century architecture and is the site of many films set during this period. It is amazing to think that this square existed before The French Revolution.

Porte de la Monnaie

This door of the city is 3 mins from the apartment and takes its name from Hôtel de la Monnaie. This door to the city acts as a frame allowing you to enter into the 18th century with cobble stones underfoot.

The TNBA Theater

The National Theater of Bordeaux in Aquitaine is within 3 mins of the apartment. At any given time there are intriguing shows that will surely knock your socks off.

Conservatoire de Bordeaux (Arts Conservatory)

Located within 4 mins of the apartment is the leading school of dance, music, and drama. We can often hear the students living in the area singing and playing music they add an extra note to the church bells of Sainte Croix and Saint Michel.

Sainte Croix (church of the Holy Cross)

This 11th century Romanesque church is the oldest church in Bordeaux and is located 3 mins away from the apartment. This church is simply breath taking due to its architecture and world famous organ concerts.

Riverside (Quai de la Monnaie)

Within 4 mins of the apartment, here you will find a large garden and a Sport’s Park with a basketball and tennis courts. You will see the river as well as Napoleon I’s bridge, Pont de Pierre. This is a great place to sunbathe or go for a romantic stroll to the famous Water Mirror, a favorite of young and old alike. The riverside serves as a host to large cruising ships that enter the city under the largest lift bridge in Europe, Pont Jacques Chaban-Delmas. We are very lucky to be located so close to the riverside because it is where the many sporadic fireworks shows and open air performances of the city are displayed.

Marché des Capucins

This is a unique local market place located within 5 mins of the apartment where you can find garden fresh produce. Natives from all over the city gather here on the weekends to taste wine and eat oysters and watch the merchants sell their goods just as they have done for centuries.

Basilica Saint Michel

This is the Gothic 14th century church you see from the apartment window. It is a quick 5 min walk to the bell tower where you can tour the catacombs and climb the highest church tower in southern France. This church survived WWII but sadly is still visibly damaged by bullet marks that destroyed precious stained glass windows in 1940. Today the church is surrounded by a diverse array of restaurants and the square attracts people from all over the world to the Sunday morning antiques markets. Many of the antiques in the apartment were found right on this square.

Jardin de Douves (Medieval Ruins)

This site has been recently excavated and opened to the public. It is within 5 mins of the apartment and gives an honest glimpse of the architecture of the medieval walls surrounding the historic center. This is one of the few places in the city where the wall remains standing. Today we can walk along the top of the wall which has become a garden giving an impressive idea of the thickness of the wall.

Porte Cailhau

This door to the city is older than the Port de la Monnaie and Hôtel de la Monnaie and offers a superbe example of Gothique and Renaissance architecture. You can arrive here from the apartment in 15 mins and climb the spiraling stairs to see a museum as well as great views of the city for FREE.

Miroir d’Eau and Place de la Bourse

Within 16 mins walk from the apartment, this Water Mirror is a perfect place for pictures, to meet friends, and to splash around in the water. Here you can let your inner child run free and enjoy the signature sight of Bordeaux.

Place de la Victoire

This square is located within 10 mins of the apartment. It is the meeting place for students and is at the beginning of the longest pedestrian only street in all of France. In this area you will find a wide range of shops and restaurants fitting all budgets and tastes.

Tour Pey Berland – Cathédrale Saint-André

This tower is located 19 mins from the apartment and is a perfect example of 15th century architecture. You can climb this tower but it is not as high as the tower of Saint Michel. The Romanesque cathedral built in 1096 (only one wall of the original church remains) is world famous because Eleanor of Aquitaine married Louis VII here in 1137.
