Faysselle is a delighteful hamlet comprising 3 gites and the owner's
farmhouse, set in 12 acres of garden, woodland and meadow in the
beautiful countryside of Lot-et-Garonne, South West France.

All the gites have been carefully restored to retain as much
character as possible, with beams and exposed stonework.

Couchant is a beautiful gite boasting spectacular exposed beams.
The house is 'upside-down' with two bedrooms (one double, one twin)
on the ground floor along with a bathroom/shower/wc and a shower
room/wc. These bedrooms remain particularly cool during the hot
summers. A small staircase leads to a third (twin) bedroom - ideal
for children who feel they have their own 'hideaway' from their
parents and yet still within earshot! All bedrooms are provided
with fans.

The main stairs leads to the living area with large dining table,
comfortable sofas and a well-equipped kitchen area with washing
machine, cooker, microwave and large fridge/freezer.

French doors lead onto the terrace and front garden. Shaded by
walnut and fig trees, this terace is perfect for sipping a glass of
wine and watching the sunset.

In addition a covered terrace at the entrance to Couchant could be
shared with Levant, the neighbouring gite. Ideal for two families
who wish to holiday together and share mealtimes, and yet retain
their own living accommodation.

The owners, and their three golden retrievers, live (discreetly!) on
site. We are always available for help, information and suggestions
of places to visit and eat out.

We offer an evening meal on the day of your arrival to save you
cooking after your journey. Guests are welcome to join us for
dinner on our large balcony overlooking the valley and to take the
opportunity to meet fellow guests over a sociable meal and a few
glasses of wine! The perfect start to a wonderful holiday!



The centre of activity at Faysselle is the pretty 10.5m x 5.5m
swimming pool with a mini pool (ideal for toddlers) and waterfall
into the main pool.

Pool games, snooker, badminton and boules are provided. Also
children's swings and swing tennis. All gites have satellite tv
(incl BBC tv channels) and dvd players.

For nature lovers, a walk down into our field is a must. During May
there are several varieties of orchid, and by June the field is a
carpet of wild flowers. Buzzards and kites will be soaring overhead
and we can always lend you binoculars for spotting many of the other
birds here. Deer can occasionally be seen wandering through the
fields and even the odd wild boar could make an appearance!



The local area has much to offer all the family, with beautiful
bastide village and markets to explore,

The region is full of historical interest and was much fought over
during the Hundred Years' War. There are numerous bastide villages
to explore, along with colourful markets selling the wonderful local
fruit and vegetables.

Our local village hosts a weekly night market during the summer,
with the opportunity to try many local dishes and wine, and eat out
in the historic village square.

We are close the wine growing areas of Buzet, Duras and Cahors, and
for food lovers this area is a must! Magret and confit of duck,
foie gras, melons, plums and soft fruit are all produced locally.
Agen is famous for its prunes and if your only memory of prunes is
from school dinners, wait until you try prunes in Armagnac. You
will never think of them in the same way again! Restaurants vary
from basic regional cooking to haute cuisine, and prices from 10
euros for a three course lunch to the somewhat more expensive (!)
Michelin 3 star restaurant in nearby Puymirol.

Golf and horse riding are close by and there are several leisure
lakes with 'beaches'. There is Parc Walibi in Agen, a theme park
which is enjoyed by all ages, and and an adventure park with aerial
walkways, rope slides etc set in woodland close to Fumel. There is
also a small water park near Valence d'Agen about 25 minutes away.
There are numerous water sports on the Lot and Garonne rivers, or if
you prefer to watch rather than participate then there are boats for
hire in Villeneuve-sur-Lot,Moissac and Nerac, or canal/river trips
from Agen or Nerac. There is even a go-kart track near Agen!

Day trips out can include the scenery of the Lot and Dordogne
valleys, Cahors and the spectacular St Cirq lapopie, and the larger
cities of Toulouse and Bordeaux. The Airbus factory in Toulouse
offers tours in English, and there is also an excellent space museum

We guarantee you will receive a warm welcome at Faysselle. Many of
our guests return time and again and one couple loved it so much
they asked if we could organise their wedding here! We have lived
here for seven years and like to feel that our visitors return not
as 'guests' but as 'friends'



Rates are per property per week and are inclusive of water, electricity and gas. All bed linen and bath towels provided. Pool towels available if required. 20% deposit required to secure booking. Final balance due 8 weeks before holiday commences.
