Where to stay ?
In terms of location, you can look at either Bordeaux or the Urban Community of Bordeaux (sometimes referred to as CUB in French) which includes the neighbouring towns, of which the closest to the school are Talence, Gradignan, and Pessac.
The liveliest areas of Bordeaux city centre are Hôtel de Ville, Quinconces, St Pierre, Capucins and Victoire. These last 3 are student neighbourhoods and very popular evening destinations, so are noisier than others.
Nansouty and St Genes are 2 quieter alternatives.
Tram B and buses provide transport links. For information on public transport in Bordeaux and CUB, please visit: http://www.infotbm.com
Site for announcement of rents

Be wary of agencies with fees lower than around €200. They will offer you properties from listings that are generally no longer available.
