Overview

About the property

Village House Apartment

Tillac is one of the hidden treasures of ancient Gascony and our house is part of the historic medieval colonnade at the tranquil, traffic free heart of the village. It is situated opposite the church, next to the medieval tower and 'village green' and just a few yards from the café/restaurant and village shop. The village was featured in Musketeers starring Catherine Deneuve, who uses our front door! An ideal quiet retreat or a centre for more active exploration. Located at the heart of ancient Gascony with Armagnac, St Mont and Madiran vineyards, historic villages, the local area is full of places to see and things to do from wine tasting to music, with the international Jazz in Marciac festival taking place in August in the next door village. Within a few kilometers, there is a market in a different town every morning and restaurants nearby to try local specialities. The Pyrenees can be seen in the distance from Tillac, with the ski resorts of St Lary and La Mongie within 1 1/2 hours, lunch in Spain easily achievable and Atlantic coast at Biarritz in around 2 hours.

Calme , silence et repos dans un cadre historique

  • 4 of 5

Excellent séjour à Tillac. Des hôtes charmants , gentils et pas intrusifs malgré le fait qu'ils habitent juste en face. Rue piétonne donc zéro bruit le jour ni la nuit. Dépaysement assuré! Et même si le fait de n'avoir ni réseau téléphone ni internet ni télévision est parfois génant, cela fait finalement un bien fou d'être "déconnecté" totalement du quotidien! Appartement très joli, bien aménagé et bien équipé.

Remarquablement situé dans un village proche de Marciac, cet appartement

Est vaste et bien equipé. Le cadre est exeptionnel et de nombreuses activités sont possible.

Toutefois, Une connection Wifi serait la bienvenue.
