A Bed and Breakfast in France's Bordeaux Region


A charming guest house created by Brigitte Lurton, la Maison Bord'eaux (literally water's edge) opened its doors in June 2003. The 18th century structure was once home to horse stables. Upon its renovation, all bets were on reconciling the allure of the past with the design of today. Et voilà - the results!

The main room, colorful and tangy, where one can admire the paintings of artists who contributed in making the house a unique spot.

The contemporary architecture blends well with the antique wood and tile floors, the plaster columns of the entrance hall and the high ceilings. An assortment of artists' works - the furniture of Martine Bedin and Jean Nouvel, the paintings of Tony Soulié, Richard Cerf, Marc Latamie and Claude Vialla - played an important role in the renovation. The proprietors propose private tours of the wine cellar as well as "cru classé" dinners for discerning fans of fine wine.
