Le Tournié is a delightful property nestled in the beautiful hilly landscapes of the Lot-et-Garonne region in Southwest of France. The region is renowned for its stunning nature, waterways, castles and medieval fortified towns. The closest village to Le Tournié is Laroque Timbault, 3 miles away, which dates back to at least the 13th Century and where you can bear witness to its medieval past.
Le Tournié consists of two properties adjacent to each other. The ‘Old House’ retains a rustic charm combined with modern kitchen equipped for gourmet cooking and modern bathroom facilities. This house also benefits from a contemporary den space that is ideal for someone who intends to spend time working or writing during their stay.
Currently, only a single room in the 'Old House' is available. Guests staying in this room have a private patio, private entrance, and a private bathroom. The kitchen facilities are shared.
Le Tournié is set on 3-4 acres of beautiful grounds and benefits from a 17 metre lap pool with Italian tiling and contemporary pool furniture to relax in comfort.
Le Tournié enjoys spectacular panoramic views across the surrounding countryside and is the perfect place for relaxing in peace and tranquillity. There is, however, plenty to discover in the neighbouring areas such as Bastides and other medieval towns, museums and caves. If you are looking for something more energetic then then are plenty of opportunities to undertake activities such as golf, archery, rock climbing, horse riding, hiking and bike trailing, quad biking and dune buggies, paintball, go-karts and swimming and other water activities.
There are also a number of fabulous restaurants within close driving distance of Le Tournie. At Laroque Timbaut you will find a couple of small grocery stores, two bakeries and a butcher.
Le Tournie is located approximately 20 km (12.5 miles) from Agen (which has TGV service) and is approximately 135 km (85 miles) from Toulouse.
My family rented this beautiful house many years ago and I remember it as if it were yesterday. Le Tournié has a lovely interior and gorgeous grounds and (of course) is surrounded by incredible landscape: the perfect French countryside getaway. Romantic, picturesque, with wonderful food nearby—I can't recommend it highly enough. The owner (Ray Duch) is a family friend and just wonderful; I can only imagine that property managers Jonathan and Sarah are as well.
