First class. Best gite we have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks in La Maison, but we also had the opportunity to check out the other 2 gites - Pigeonnier and Grange - and we are now spoilt for choice!! All 3 are fantastic - clean, well-maintained and, unusual for gites, had everything we needed. The area and views are to die for. The weather was wonderful too. We did not get to meet the owner (who has always been most helpful), but his son and daughter were on site and they were both really kind, friendly and extremely helpful. We were very lazy, I'm afraid and spent most of the time relaxing round the beautiful pool, on our lovely, private balcony or even in the gite itself (watching Wimbledon and the Tour de France!!). My husband brought his bike and went out cycling regularly - fabulous place for cycling. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be returning - we just have to decide which gite we want to stay in!

Family Holiday - Summer 2010

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at La Maison, Ste Foy in August 2010 and were delighted with the house and pool. From the initial booking, Peter Franklin was friendly and helpful - right down to suggesting a route and overnight stop on the way down from Calais.
When we arrived at the house, we were very pleased with the standard of accommation. A large house, clean and well set out, with a fully equipped kitchen. The pool is a real highlight, very clean with enough lounger chairs and umbrellas for all the guests.
Great care has been taken in the renovation and we hope to return again.

First holiday with grown up kids!

  • 5 of 5
We were a tired motley crew that arrived after dark at Sainte Foy, the house was well furnished for a family holiday. A bottle of wine, plus beer and milk in the fridge were very thoughtful and much appreciated. As a noisy group with a guitar and ukelele we were glad that our outdoor sitting area was at the back so we didn't disturb the other guests! We loved the Wednesday night market at Praysass, joining in with the dancing was hilarious! Castelmoron was lovely for shopping and a coffee in a café. The view of the distant hills and vinyards from our patio was stunning, sitting with a glass of wine while the sun set was as near perfect as you can get. Peter and Daryl have done a superb job of restoring these beautiful pale stone buildings, which now all have matching blue shutters. The pool was a great asset as it was quite hot when we were there. We do hope to return one day.

La Maison Sainte Foy

  • 5 of 5
The property was if anything better than the pictures on the internet suggested. It had character, was spacious and comfortable and had all the equipment you needed. The terrace was excellent. The shared pool area was lovely and had lots of sunloungers. The surroundings were peaceful, and the sunsets were amazing. A lovely gite that we would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing and peaceful holiday.

Heureux séjour

  • 5 of 5
Nous sommes arrivés dans la soirée (5 adultes et deux enfants de 6 et 11 ans) et nous avons découvert « La Maison » en « vrai ». Nous étions très attirés par les photos du site et nous avons été agréablement surpris de constater que la réalité dépassait les images. Des locaux spacieux, propres, fonctionnels et une ambiance rustique et chaleureuse. Après une bonne nuit dans des chambres accueillantes avec des lits confortables, nous avons découvert les extérieurs : un superbe balcon avec une vue magnifique, une piscine hollywoodienne très bien entretenue , un calme et une sérénité que nous recherchions .
Le très joli village de Prayssas à 5 minutes du gîte nous a permis de nous ravitailler en denrées de base.
Le propriétaire est toujours à l’écoute et disponible et il a réussi le tour de force de remplacer la box défectueuse pour le lendemain.
Nous avons apprécié les deux salles de bain et les deux w.c ainsi que la cuisine très fonctionnelle et très bien équipée.
Le seul reproche que nous pourrions faire, c’est que la télé n’est reliée qu’à un décodeur anglais mais Peter Franklin nous a assuré qu’il va remédier à cela pour satisfaire la clientèle française.
En résumé, nous avons été très satisfait de notre séjour (15 jours) : un cadre magnifique, un grand confort, un bien-être douillet qui nous ont bercés petits et grands .Nous recommandons sans réserve ce gîte à tous ceux qui veulent passer d’agréables vacances.

There is an almost endless list of places to visit in the area, from wonderful scenery, ancient villages, beautiful architecture and sites of outstanding natural beauty. The area boasts some fine examples of bastide (fortified) villages. Pujols is only 15 mins away and is exceptionally pretty. Slightly further afield (30 mins) is Penne d’Agenias, an excellent example of a bastide village and extremely pretty. The local village of Prayssas is just 4kms away. This old bastide village is full of life in the summer months, extremely pretty and boasts all facilities, shops, restaurants, bar, post office & pharmacy.

The two local towns (both approx 20 mins away) are Agen and Villenueve sur Lot. Both are very attractive and have excellent pedestrianised shopping areas in the town centres and a number of commercial centres on the outskirts with hypermarkets and other retail outlets. Agen is renowned for the aqueduct which carries the Canal du Midi across the Garonne river.
