About Jenny and Alan Rothwell

Originally from the UK but lived in the Isle of Man for over 20 years. We arrived in France in 2002 and bought Gone Fishin', the sixth house that we viewed.

Because our home Gone Fishin' in the Lot-et-Garonne is so large with a separate entrance to another part of the house, we decided to turn that part into an independent property for self catering gîte/cottage accommodation and we installed a new bathroom and kitchen as well as doing all the decorating. We have a superb kitchen garden and have six hens, we share the produce with guests when in abundance at no charge.

We have found that Gone Fishin' is a great favourite for senior citizens, as the gîte/cottage is on one level and all our grounds are level and we are within easy reach should at any time you need help.

Jenny and Alan Rothwell purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Jenny and Alan Rothwell chose Lot-et-Garonne

Our property offers you pristine clean comfort, peace and quiet. A child free zone! Just see our own personal website where you will see reviews by past guests. Enjoy for less than STERLING - FIFTY SIX per night. when you contact us DIRECTLY. Phone for a chat and we will then call you back .... THE FRENCH CODE IS ZERO ZERO THIRTY THREE, (then) FIVE FIVE THREE, EIGHT FOUR THREE, THREE SEVEN FOUR.

The area known as the Lot et Garonne in Aquitaine has all the seasons you would expect in England. Yes indeed an early spring with March showers instead of April!

Summer mid May but the heat some what intense by August.

October autumn creeps up slowly and early January becomes quickly cold and can be a regular -7, brrr very cold one year we woke with -19!!! But the seasons are there nevertheless.

The area is diverse with agriculture, from salads, vegetables, orchards including apples, kiwis, prunes and pears.

Where we are situated we are not isolated good shops just 8 mins away and vibrant towns just 30 mins. We have easy access in Agen to the TGV opening many routes.

Perfect & so peaceful just for 2 as promised.

  • 5 of 5

The gite/ cottage is immaculate , spacious and very comfortable. We could not fault it. A lovely big garden with terrace, BBQ etc and because the area is so flat being wobbly on my pins it meant I could walk around the garden and fruit trees but also around the pathways of the lake and forest area. As Alan and Jenny had promised it really was exclusive to just the 2 of us and not a child in sight or earshot , bliss! Fantastic to sit around the lake and watch the fish and the kingfishers, heaven. Shops are close by 6 mins or so or the bigger towns 30 mins and Jenny and Alan just around the corner in the main house was reassuring, and so helpful with directions and places to visit as local knowledge is essential. Have already booked for this year, cant wait.
