Created in 1982 on the site of a former printing house, Le Village Notre Dame is the first art and antiques gallery in Aquitaine, France. Located in the heart of the historic "Chartrons" district of Bordeaux, world famous for its traditional Bordeaux wine trade and now for its antique shops, Le Village Notre Dame has around twenty stands spread over a total surface area of 1,000 square meters. The antique dealers in Le Village Notre Dame are competent, passionate and renowned professionals, making this area a must for collectors.
Bordeaux has long attracted those interested in art and antiques (as well as wine!), making it the perfect location for a permanent antiques market such as Le Village Notre Dame. The building that houses this selection of antique dealers and artisans was once a printing press before being given new life as a home for historical and collectible items. It is located on the outskirts of the city, near the historic Eglise Saint-Louis des Chartrons and the Halle des Chartrons. Indeed, much of the surrounding architecture is historic and stunning, creating the perfect setting for such a shop.
Upon entering Le Village Notre Dame, it is unclear whether the exhibition area is more of a museum, gallery or shop. Fantastic antique jewelry can be found here, displayed alongside ornamental porcelain pieces, vintage furniture, photography and artwork, vases, clocks, glassware, silverware, dinnerware collections, busts, chests, curiosities, and much more. This is the perfect place for anyone just beginning to collect antiques, as the dealers here are incredibly knowledgeable and happy to help with any questions shoppers may have.
Le Village Notre Dame sets itself apart from other traditional antique stores by offering a wedding gift registry service. A unique and treasured piece of history is the perfect memento of a wedding day and so much more exciting to shop for than the regularly listed kettles, toasters or coffee makers.
