About Tim Hewett

Hi - we are an English couple living in France for the last 16 years running a successful chambre d'hote in the winter and in the summer we rent out the hotel as a gite so you have full run of everything! We live next door so can cook meals for you if you require and also babysitting.

Tim Hewett purchased this house in 2001

Why Tim Hewett chose Rabastens

Please feel free to look at the Trip Advisor reports. A number of our summer rental clients have registered their amazing comments regarding the house , amenities and the fact that the pool can be seen from the kitchen/bbq/sitting area. This means that if you have children you can keep an eye on them whilst you relax. Complete calm set in 40 acres.

What makes this house unique

Utilise our vegetable garden for fresh Tomatoes etc.

If we are around ( generally we are away during three weeks of the summer) we can cook some meals.( We have a reputation for high quality food since we host Airbus conferences as well as local requests for birthday diners) We have four cats, one lovely labrador "Pebble" and chickens that will provide you with fresh eggs as long as when we are not around you put them to bed!!

Perfect safe secluded space

  • 5 of 5

If you have a mob of people, 60/70, 30's and 2-8 this house ticks all the boxes. It's spacious, cool inside and even though the weather was "variable" it was wonderful. Lots of different outside sitting/sprawling spaces. Tim and Ally were perfect (on hand but not in face) hosts - their meat advice in Rabastens was spot on and their directions anywhere perfect. It's really easy to get to and if the weather isn't great then there are so many places within 30/40 minutes from mediaeval hill top bastides to the high tech magic of Space city in Toulouse (and some seriously nice shops ...!) We are recovering !
