About steve bushell

We are an English family, with two young children (12 & 10), and fell in love with this part of France because of the sweeping countryside, ease of access to small airports and of course the house.

We stay at Quatre Vents several times a year, and each time discover something new about the garden and surrounding area; it's like a treasure trove slowly being opened

steve bushell purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why steve bushell chose Lagarrigue

Love the countryside, proximity to airports with cheap flights, peaceful private location, yet 5mins to boulangerie and supermarket

and of course the views from the house and garden, we looked at a lot of places before getting Quatre Vents

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Pool with its own bar

Fantastic views

huge garden, with great mix of kept lawn, fields and woodland to enjoy and explore and cool shadey places to relax under trees, snooze and read,

you feel so chilled and thrilled by just being there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It had everything lots of space outside, woods to explore, sofas to chill out on inside, pool, bar and pizza oven.

  • 5 of 5

I have just come back from a two week holiday at ‘Quatre Vents’ (Lagarrigue) with my family and our friends and everybody thoroughly enjoyed their stay in this fabulously rustic house.

The bedrooms were spacious and Steve (the owner) was able to ensure they were arranged to cater for our specific numbers. The rooms throughout are in keeping with the rustic feel of the house and were undeniably clean; and as well as enough pots, pans, crockery and cutlery to keep Gordon Ramsay happy, the kitchen had every conceivable appliance and utensil for all our self-catering needs.

The property is set in wonderful grounds with fantastic views, and despite our numbers, it was large enough to offer our two families space and privacy when required.

The pool was fantastic and enjoyed by both adults and children alike, and the pizza oven, barbecue and outdoor bar were all put to good use during our stay.

There is satellite television and indoor games galore to amuse guests, but thankfully the weather was so good during our stay that only the ‘boules’ got any real use.

The Thursday night market in Aiguillon was a great place to meet ‘the locals’ who are extremely friendly, and as well as the principal city of Agen there are any number of beautiful villages close by which are well worth a visit.

We particularly loved Buzet, Nerac, Pusjol, Poudenas and Duras, and a special mention has to be given to Lac Clarens near Casteljaloux which offers a number of brilliant activities for all the family.

‘Quatre Vents’ is a wonderful base to discover Lot et Garonne, but equally, you will have a wonderful time there if you never leave the grounds.

A superb property

  • 5 of 5

Les Quatres Vent is a wonderful place to stay, fitted out to a high specification and very comfortable. The location is picturesque, and convenient for exploring the surrounding region. Contact with the owners was prompt and courteous.

Great long-weekend break in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

A charming, traditional manor house with great history back to the 13th century.

Wonderful views out over the valley in the day and up to the Milky Way at night.

Plenty of common rooms inside for the kids to play and adults to relax with thick walls to keep cool on a hot day.

All the amenities worked and we had great fun in the local markets filling the larder.

Many a drink at the pool-bar watching the sunset.

All well arranged

A lovely house and pool in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying at this house. The location is very peaceful and the views from outside over the surrounding countryside are magnificent. We loved sitting outside watching the sun go down with drinks in hand. The house is very spacious with plenty of room and high ceilings in the main living rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed being able to cook with all the wonderful French produce from local markets and shops. There's also a barbecue and pizza oven to try out.

The pool is a good size and the children spent many hours playing in it while the adults sat at the bar overlooking the pool. Just remember to switch off the child alarm in the pool before they jump in.

There are good local shops and a hypermarket a little further away. Fun local activities include cycling along the canal and visiting the night markets where everyone buys local food and sits down together to eat it. The house sits in substantial grounds for the children to explore and play in.

The house would be perfect for a big house party or multiple families with the accommodation spread out so we don't get in each others way.

Wonderful rustic house

  • 5 of 5

We visited here for my 30th birthday, a group of 14 family and friends, we had an incredible experience. The house is fully kitted out with everything you need, we did not leave the property for 4 days. The weather was not amazing however there was plenty of fun games and activities to do in the house.

The house itself is filled with little hide-aways annexes, beautifully decorated.

There is a large local supermarket in the little town, where we stocked up on everything, the wine is so cheap.

I recommend renting a car.

We will definitely be staying again!

Thanks,

Rachel
