The Aquitaine region

A region of varied agriculture with a vast abundance of medieval and Bastide towns; criss-crossed by majestic rivers. An area renowned for it's,wine and local cuisine, it is a haven for most tastes. A micro-climate makes this an exceptionally clement spot, with long days of sunshine from spring until well into the autumn.

The quaint old towns, ancient grottos with cave-drawings, peaceful countryside and sparkling rivers assure that there is interest for all. Sport is well catered for with golf courses, tennis courts, cycling and walking routes, kayaking and swimming readily available. There is a colourful market within reach most days of the week and some evenings. Restaurants are plentiful and cover a wide range of both choice and price.


Castillonnés is a Bastide with a chequered history, which for many years was English owned during the 100ys wars. It is a good centre for day to day commerce and boasts good restaurants and bars. During the summer months there are open air concerts and festivals and there is a thriving market every Tuesday.

Trotting races are held at the Hippodrome five or six times a year and this area has many studs and training yards.

"Fantastic house superb location - ideal for relaxing and sightseeing"

Barbara and Alison Coad the owners of Grand Mauroux could not have been more helpful or accommodating on arrival. The House itself is superb with every amenity you could need and the rooms furnished to a high degree with hairdryers and power showers. The facility to make snacks, tea and coffee straight from the bedroom on the mezzanaine floor was great. The dining room and sitting room were just magnificent with plenty of room for 12 people-and with english tv if required.The kitchen facilities had everything you could need. When visiting the area be sure to find out when the local markets are and make them a must - you will truly experience the french way of life. Within easy range are Bergerac and Bordeaux and for day trips dont miss the Lot and Garonne. Came back feeling really refreshed and relaxed and will defintely return next year.
