LES CHARTRONS

Charming Bordeaux - - THE DISTRICTS OF BORDEAUX -

The Chartrons dis­trict evokes the pe­riod dur­ing which Bor­deaux’s trade flour­ished. Sit­u­ated on the site of a for­mer Chartreux con­vent (hence the name, Chartrons), this dis­trict was home to mer­chants of An­glo-saxon, Scan­di­na­vian, Ger­man and Irish ori­gin. All of them built beau­ti­ful stone houses which were used as ware­houses and pri­vate res­i­dences.
