At a glance the Maison Fredon - La Tupina
Dating back to 1750, La Maison Fredon belonged to a family of grocers who played a major role in the life of the local community. The building, shaped by the history, style and spirit of 18th century Bordeaux, now has a new vocation. The five guest rooms, each one with its own distinctive character, feature open fireplaces and French-style ceilings. Perched on high, the room with the sloping ceilings on the top floor boasts sweeping views of the River Garonne. Jean-Pierre Xiradakis, who also owns five restaurants in Rue Porte de la Monnaie, has obviously tapped into his subtle feeling for art. Offbeat furniture by Philippe Stark, one of the world’s leading designers and old masters adorn the venerable stone walls.
