What is the cost of living in a shared apartment in Bordeaux

The cost of living in Bordeaux has increased significantly over the last 5 to 10 years. This has had an impact on every shared apartment. Although the cost of living is similar to that of Lyon, the cost of renting in Bordeaux is still a bit higher, probably because the rental market is so tight. Thus, finding a rental can be particularly complex. Indeed, the number of students is increasing and the number of places available in student residences is limited. You should also know that the city is more and more coveted by Parisians who wish to leave the capital to live in a more pleasant city like Bordeaux, which has the effect of pulling up rents. The same logic can be seen in Lyon. As the area of activity is very dynamic, it is rather easy to find a well-paid job there. Finally, the location, the weather, and the living environment are criteria that attract more and more new inhabitants, which will inevitably increase the cost of living and therefore the cost of housing, particularly in downtown Bordeaux. The cost of living is therefore between that of Paris and that of Lyon, and the cost of a shared apartment follows the same logic.
