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'
