Access and practical information
Go to Pénates
From the train station: the access is direct and is done by tramway using the line D direction cantinole. You have to get off at the streetcar stop Barrière du Médoc and walk 500 meters.
From the airport: the easiest option is to use a cab. The trip takes about 20 minutes and costs 30 euros. You can also book our partner driver Frederic
By car: pénates is located in a rather residential area of Bordeaux and it is quite easy to park on the street for free. You can also park at the Laharpe parking lot which is 30 meters from our guesthouse and costs 8 euros per day.
We recommend the following strategy: try to park in the avenue du général leclerc or the rue Laharpe and if you don't find a place after driving around (red arrows), park at the Laharpe parking lot.
