What are the most sought after property hotspots in Bordeaux? The capital city of Aquitaine and one of France’s most popular locations for real estate investment, Home Hunts’ portfolio is bursting with luxury real estate in Bordeaux. Here are three hand-picked choices in and around Bordeaux to help enhance your property search.
Home to around 6% of France’s population, Aquitaine’s popularity continues to increase and this is, in part, due to Bordeaux’s glowing reputation and ongoing transformation. Long adored for producing world class wines – and so an obvious choice of location for wine lovers and those wishing to buy a vineyard – Bordeaux has also become one of France’s most impressive cities, offering residents a difficult-to-beat combination of French tradition and modern culture.
Property hotspots in Bordeaux
The centre of Bordeaux, with its environmentally-friendly tram system, traditional 18th century architecture and contemporary landmarks is surprisingly small compared to other French cities. Renowned for its “village feel”, property in the centre of this city is very much in demand.
In terms of where to buy, Chartrons, the “Golden Triangle” (a location bounded by Cours Georges Clemenceau, Cours de l’Intendance and Allées de Tourny), Jardin Public, Fondaudège and Parc Bordelais are some of the most sought after locations in Bordeaux.
Mansion in Chartrons
Le “quartier de Chartrons” runs to the Cours du Médoc in the north and rue Fondaudège to the south. Property here was built on an old Carthusian monastery, translating as Chartreux in French, which later became Chartrons. It was the location of choice for European merchants who built beautiful homes here.
This stunning house is located in the heart of Chartrons (HH-9245025) and has been fully renovated to a high standard. It is close to the shops and the city’s tram line, and the Garonne’s docks are just a ten-minute walk away. With six bedrooms this property could work well as a family home, although it is currently run as a successful B&B. In terms of outdoor space there is a pretty patio and a rooftop terrace with views over the city. This property is on the market for €968,000.
Apartment in the city centre
This exceptional four-bedroom apartment (HH-9337471) is located on the third floor in a property hotspot in Bordeaux’s centre. With beautiful old features, such as high ceilings and marble fireplaces, it has a sumptuous feel as well as extremely spacious, immaculate rooms. A living room bathed in light and a beautiful vaulted cellar are just two of this property’s many wonderful features, which is on the market for €1,195,000.
Vineyard in the Haut-Médoc
Bordeaux is one of the great wine regions of France and is home to about 7,500 châteaux, 57 appellations and 13,000 wine growers. The mild climate and short winter, along with its rich and diverse soil, means it produces a wide variety of highly sought-after wines.
Recently there has been an increase in the number of international buyers, particularly from Asia and Russia, looking to invest in the region through the purchase of vineyard and châteaux properties. While vineyards in the Bordeaux area are known to be some of the most expensive in the world, there are ways to seek out bargains in the area and Home Hunts’ experts can advise buyers on ways to find the best investment opportunities.
