La Bastide Au Tilleul is a wonderful family friendly property perched high on a south facing hill with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Guests have been coming here from all over since it was first established as a holiday gite six years ago. All of them say the same thing – “It’s like a home away from home – just sunnier, nicer and those amazing views!”

The house itself is a warm and welcome relief from what might be called the traditional style – instead it is bright and tasteful, managing to carefully balance contemporary comfort with its innate rustic charm. Antiques sit side by side with contemporary art, modern conveniences mix with simple practicality.

Upon arrival, guests and their families have the enviable choice of cooling off in the large swimming pool, flopping under a parosol on the terrace or sipping something cold under the olive trees and admiring the views. Let the kids mess about on the inflatables or play table tennis, while you relax and soak up this bucolic bliss.

Whether you are staying one week or two, or longer, you’ll find the property grows on you by the day – offering every creature comfort from large comfy beds and high quality linens and towels, to excellent wi-fi connectivity, large music and video libraries, a wonderfully equipped, family friendly kitchen to a myriad of dining options inside and out.

Although the property is wonderfully private and hidden away, you are only a five minute drive into the centre of the charming and historical town of Nérac. Banks, post office, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and cafés are all on your doorstep. There is also a colourful Saturday market with delicious and fresh local produce.

All that remains is to bring all those heavenly goodies back and get the barbeque on the terrace going. There’s a fridge-freezer there too, so you are set up for long days and dreamy nights under the stars.

Le bonheur est dans le pré – the good life is in the meadow.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

La Bastide Au Tilleul is in the heart of Gascony in southwest France. Although tucked away in the quiet of the countryside, it is only 5 minutes drive from the historic town of Nérac - home for a period in the early 1600s of Henri IV where the restored remnants of his castle remain. Gascony is synonymous with the likes of hearty food and red wine; the countryside is one of beautifully tilled rolling hills broken up by wild and ancient oak woodlands.

La Bastide Au Tilleul and the surrounding area of Gascony is a revelation to first time visitors. In many aspects, this is forgotten France. Unspoilt, rural, beautiful, quiet and steeped in rustic charm and history. The house itself is privileged to occupy the top of a hill overlooking spellbinding views of rolling hills of sunflowers, cornfields and vineyards - a view it has owned for over 450 years.

In summertime, Gascony comes alive with food and wine markets, fetes, music festivals and gourmets nights. Summers are warm, dry and sunny, the days being longer and nights star-studded.

It is just one and half hours drive from Bordeaux and Toulouse - both UNESCO Heritage sites - cities of beguiling elegance and excellent shopping. Both are serviced by international airports. Pau and Bergerac are also within one and a half hours drive offering the splendor of the Pyrenees and the Dordogne.


La Bastide Au Tilleul is in the southwest of the Lot-et-Garonne department, 15 kms from the Department of Gers. It is five minutes from Nerac, and 25 minutes from the cathedral cities of Agen and Condom.

Within a 40km diameter of the house are the beautiful villages and towns of Lectoure, La Romieu, Miradoux, Fources, Eauze, Pujols. In between the country side is dotted with magnificent bastides, castles, and villages.

If spending hours by the pool becomes all too much, there are a myriad of activities in the area including cycling, golf, karting, boating, horse trekking, adventure centres, and even a fun park.

Foodies are well catered for as there are both Michelin starred and Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurants in easy reach.
