My boyfriend and I stayed at Jardin du sequoia for the weekend and absolutely loved it. The location is ideal - 5 min walk from the tram station or 15 min walk from the center on which you get to see Bordeaux. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful so we slept like two logs. The rooms are clean and wonderfully furnished, the beds are extremely cosy. Michel and his wife are amazingly kind, helpful and good people. The breakfast is delicious. Highly recommendable! We would love to go back!

We loved our stay atJardin du Sequoia. It. suited our needs perfectly. . Michele was a fabulous host and always very helpful and obliging. The location was only a little difficult as we arrived late at night. There are no night cafe's and restaurants nearby but they are reached within a 20 - 30 min walk. Michele gave us a history of the area, street and building whiich we really enjoyed. Thanks Michele

Just a gorgeous place. Much of the building is original and stunning - our room had a chandelier and giant balcony. The two staff (owners?) were both lovely and accommodating. There is a fantastic garden in the back with a kitchen (with tea) and sitting areas, not to mention sequoias. Solid

A tranquil location hosted by a lovely couple (Michel and his Chinese wife). They are there if you need them and keep in the background if you don't. Michel's briefing was welcome, with information about where to go and how to get there. It is a little walk out of town, but this has its own charm. The walk / tram ride in shows you different parts of Bordeaux and is quick (tram ride - 5 mins to the Opera House). He was very knowledgable about getting out to Arcachon, including train timetables.
