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 apartment

  • 5 of 5

This property was immaculate! The owners take great pride in every aspect of it and strive to contiuosly make it better. We've stay in many places during our trip through Europe was is definitely the best retal of all of them! (There were five orchids in the bathroom!)

We had a great greeting and introduction from Nathaniel who is happy to talk about the apartment and things to do in Bordeaux.

For those concerned about the high security deposit, it was returned soon after we left.

Wineries were excellent yet not happy with Bordeaux, the city

  • 3 of 5

Nathaniel, the owner, was excellent and his home is appointed extremely very well. He is a very warm person who provided a significant amount of details upon our arrival. Thank you very much, Nathaniel. Our congrats to him.

Unfortunately, the temperature in Bordeaux during our visit was about 100 degrees (35C) and the apartment had no air conditioning. Too hot! Also, the two flights of spiral staircase were charming but not friendly for walking. Bordeaux, the city, was less than expected and it was very uncomfortable to walk the streets. Yet the time spent on the Right bank (one day) and Left bank (the following day) touring wineries with Henri, Bordeaux Wine Tours, was excellent.

This is our first time as VRBO clients and have concluded that we are not going stay at someone's home again. We are hotel individuals.

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.)

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.
