Very peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Just what we needed. A really peaceful location away from the tourist hot spots. Great times lazing around the pool, then a cooling dip. BBQ while enjoying the sunsets. All very good.

Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located gite for a quiet and chilled out break. We enjoyed daily cycles along the Canal de Garonne, lazy afternoons by the pool, and quiet BBQs in the evening.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This gite is the perfect place to recharge your batteries. The surrounding area is idyllic, quiet and peaceful but near enough to Tonneins and pretty villages to explore on foot or ideally, by bicycle. The gite met all our needs and the pool was heavenly, especially after a long day in the saddle. Our host could not have been more helpful. I can certainly recommend this property.

Simply a good choice!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely peaceful location & ideal choice to mix days by the pool with visits to beautifull villages to eat/explore or both!

The owner ensured our stay at the Gite was & remained an experience that would be all you hoped for, offering suggestions of the best cafe's & restaurant's.

Accommodation was clean & comfortable with a well maintained pool.

Peaceful and secluded accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Property was well appointed and maintained, delightful owner and perfect for exploring southern France. We were particularly fortunate to have weather in excess of 80's each day.

Great holiday.

From the Owner

We bought the property in this area because the countryside is unspoilt and peaceful and yet the town is only a 5 minute drive, with everything we need. The weather in this region is very good, glorious sunny days, balmy evenings, wonderful night sky. The pleasure of sitting on the secluded terrace above the pool, watching the glorious sunsets across the unobstructed horizon, it never disappoints!
