Moving to Bordeaux

I am currently looking for somewhere to live in Bordeaux from September.  My daughter has a place in the consevatoire de danse de Bordeaux.  My wife and I are english teachers and already have some work in Bordeaux but most our our teaching is done from home for students in paris by phone.

We would like to rent somewhere hopefully close to the conservatoire - or somewhere with good connections to it.

I have been told that "Place Nansouty" is not far also perhaps around Bordeaux Bastide or Cenon or Floirac...?  or Begles

It would have to be a resonable price - perhaps we want the impossible?

Thanks  in advance for your advice or help


Hi and welcome on board Mark!

I hope other members will show up with some good recommendations soon ;)


Thanks Armand!!

Hello markone
Did you finally find a place to live? Where is it ?
I was living in Pessac before moving  in the US last year (for 2 years). If you need any advise feel free to ask.

That all sounds most useful.  How does one get in touch with you?

Kind regards.

Hi Mark!
We are moving to Bordeaux also this year .  I have visited twice this month and for the next two days I'm walking all the close neighborhoods close to Centre Ville.  Keep in mind we are retiring, selling or giving away EVERYTHING so we can downsize but not less than 600 square feet at least.  I'm finding it difficult to get an Agent Immoblier to work with you if you don't have a French Bank account and they won't give you one without a French address. So let's keep in touch. I'll let you know what I find out
