Staying here has been a delight. The main tourist season is over, the bastide towns are not full and there is calm and peace everywhere which makes driving, visiting places a joy. Lastuques offers so much! The peace and quiet combined with the warmth of Jill and Graham's welcome plus being able to bring our two dogs make for a unique combination of place and human warmth. The pool cover means that we swam in very warm water and though the weather has been hot and sunny we have been able to use the pool at any time of the day and evening which has added to the joy of our stay.The gite is spotless, comfortable and well equipped. We also observed that if the weather had been cool the gite could be easily heated. So our advice is to come here out of season and have a great time.

"A great Place"
We had a great week at Lastuques, the house, setting and location is beautiful. The house was very clean and well equipped and the pool was perfect- very clean, well fenced and enjoyed by the whole family; although I get the feeling that if something was wrong Jill and Graham would do their upmost to put it right. Jill and Graham were so generous with their time, sharing their dogs Sky and Taz (with our children), vegetables and beautiful fresh eggs. Just don't tell everyone because we plan to return and suspect this will book quickly!

"Don't miss out!"
We are coming towards the end of our 2 week stay with Jill and Graham, and how relaxed do we feel? The peace and serenity here is amazing and the gite just as good . Jill and Graham have been hosts extraordinare and we have never felt so welcome .... Skye and taz are happy to share anyone willing to give them a cuddle and the chickens produce the most delicious eggs . The pool is well looked after and has been used daily even on the cloudy days and when we have had the energy so has the table tennis badminton and boules! A beautiful part of France made better with friendly welcoming hosts thanks to you both for allowing us to use your home xxx

We had a fantastic week with our two children. Jill and Graham could not have done more to make us feel welcome, we felt like part of the family. House was very clean, comfortable and well equipped - as was the pool. Anything we needed or had queries about was dealt with very quickly. Enjoyed the company of Sky and Taz the two dogs. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for a lovely holiday :)

About the Owner
Graham & Jill have lived at Lastuques since June 2007. We have rented our gite out since 2012 and have found it extremely rewarding and have met some fantastic people. Graham and I both work in France, and love our life here. Jill rides her horse round the local randonees for pleasure and enjoys travelling around the beautiful countryside on her horse. We have a lovely friendly golden Labrador called Skye and a pug cross called Taz (no feeding please). In England Jill worked in a primary school for 17 years and is an ASA swimming teacher. We have two children and two grand children. Graham is continuing his building trade and is now registered as a French Artisan. Jill & Graham enjoy the lifestyle here, especially cooking BBQs and entertaining outside. View our facebook Lastuques.
