Cosy cottage with well equipped kitchen and bathrooms

  • 5 of 5

Tracey and Leigh, were great hosts and ensured that we were happy with our holiday choice. During our stay they looked after our needs and were always happy to help with any any local information and despite being the end of October we had a swim in the outdoor unheated pool.............quite an experience and something that we really hadn't considered at this time of year!!

The views and quiet countryside location are unbeatable and so if you are looking for a great secluded get away in the countryside...........this is the one...........a car is essential.

Beautiful Gite with the most amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

First sight of the Gite was 'wow' as we drove up the lane - the views are to die for, the gite looked even better than the internet pictures. Tracy and Leigh and Bertie made us feel so welcome. We met the boys later.

But the gite is absolutely stunning - it has so much attention to detail and was 'home form home'. Everything was just brilliant - the welcome hamper was a lovely extra. Over the years we have stayed in many different gites, but this one beats the other hands down.

Spotlessly clean and gorgeous linens.

The pool is another added bonus and was spotlessly maintained daily. But even if there were no pool we would still want to return.

It is so peaceful and quiet - it was lovely to sit outside reading and looking at the views, the chickens visited every day ( just in case there were bits that needed finishing!), Missy is such a character and is obviously 'in charge', could almost have a conversation with her!

We cannot say enough about this lovely gite and without doubt we will return. Leigh has done a wonderful job of rebuilding the gite to say nothing of their own home which is amazing. Tracy and he have paid so much attention to detail, we loved it!

They also gave us lots of tips for places to visit, they were on hand if we needed anything.

This was an area we had not visited before and found it has a fascinating history, do visit the Bastide Villages - one of the best is Fources with a lovely restaurant called simply Auberge De Fources! In fact we ate there twice - we enjoyed it so much, delightful!

Another village is La Romieu - there is a story to the village associated with cats and there are stone cat statues everywhere. Again a really good restaurant there in the square.

The weather was kind to us - until we had the most spectacular storm! It was something to see it sweeping in across the countryside, after that the weather did turn a bit cooler but was in fact, welcome after 34 degrees one day!!

It seems as if there are fields and fields of sunflowers in the area - of course they were over, but I have always wanted to see them in full bloom, so hoping to return early enough to see them next time

Anyway we want to return to this beautiful gite and look forward to seeing Tracy and Leigh and family again in the not too distant future.

Plus still so much history of the area to investigate and explore.

A great property with great owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house in Moncrabeau. Very tranquil setting with excellent facilities. The pool is of a good standard too. Leigh and Tracy were great hosts and a glass of Rose at the end of the day with them was a real highlight. Leigh was very helpful as I had some car issues and even accompanied me to see the mechanic. Overall I can highly recommend the property for a great break getting away from it all.

The most perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

It was love at first sight discovering this gite on the internet. The place looks even better out there. We spent the best week thanks to Tracy. Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet Leigh and the children, but Tracy was a perfect host and welcomed us warmly.

The house was super tidy, very cosy, well equiped, and we spent some amazing quality time all together. No close neighbours so it’s the most calm and peaceful place. Lots of space for the kids to play and a big pool to relax.

There are some lovely villages only a couple of kilometers away with markets, supermarkets and restaurants.

We already miss the place terribly and we’re looking forward to return as soon as possible!

Thanks Tracy!

Greetings from Delphine, Luis, Florian, Tobias and Jack :)

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week recently at this amazing cottage. The view is to die for, the cottage is well equipped and stylish and the owners are extremely welcoming and easy to deal with. We couldn't have asked for more from Leigh and Tracy and their lovely family. Thanks for a great stay.

Tranquil haven with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

Found Tracy and Leigh's gite with no problems and the couple were on hand to greet us. The property has been completely renovated by Leigh and Tracy and the standard of finish is impeccable. The first impression was the stunning views over the rolling hills of the beautiful countryside surrounding the property. Everything that you could want for a relaxed stay was there including a useful welcome pack to get you started. Swimming pool was fantastic and really modern so no taste of chemicals as its done with salt. The property is located on land which is higher than the surrounding and so the views were amazing and you will be pushed to find better in this region. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Location

From the Owner

As soon as we saw the properties location we fell in love! The houses needed complete renovation but the situation is to die for with panoramic views and surrounded on all sides by open countryside with no immediate neighbours. We are situated at the end of a country lane so no passing traffic or road noise and close to our favourite towns of Condom and Nerac.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Moncrabeau at 2 Kilometres Nearest Train : Agen at 35 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Agen at 30 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Condom at 12 Kilometres Car: necessary

Condom is the closest town to us being an easy 12 min drive. There you can find 3 large supermarkets and a choice of restaurants bars and cafes. Wednesday and Saturday market.

Nerac is just 15 min drive, a beautiful town with river and parks good restaurants and the best market around on a Saturday morning also during summer weekly night markets
