Agen area House Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 5 between Bordeaux and Toulouse near confluence of Lot and Garonne rivers
Switch off the world and enjoy life as it should be lived, slowly. Just one hour by auto route from Bordeaux airport, and 1.5 hours from Toulouse airport, this rural retreat is very accessible. Located in the heart of rural Lot-et-Garonne enjoy walks and bike rides through rolling farmland, resplendent with blooming sunflowers in summer.
Ideal for a couple or family with older children, the house is well located to explore the SW of France: within easy driving distance of Bordeaux and Toulouse, Arcachon and the Atlantic coast, the spectacular Dune du Pyla, and historic towns such as Carcasonne. Closer to home visit the wineries of Buzet and Duras, local markets and numerous picturesque bastide towns in the area; or take a canal trip and explore the countryside in a slower more intimate way. Strike out a little further to the wineries of St. Emillion (1.5 hrs) and Bordeaux, or the Pyrenees (3 hrs) and the spa town of Pau.

We fell in love with the house as soon as we stepped in and saw the view from the balacony. Galapian is a lovely village in the heart of Lot-et-Garonne and we realised that this was a place that we wanted to return to again and again. As the years have passed we have been fortunate to do just this and the house became a home away from home.
The house has enabled us to be immersed in rural France and the warmth and generosity of the neighbours has enriched our experience. Whether relaxing by the pool or enjoying the views on the balcony with a glass of wine, the house offers plenty of opportunities to unwind and live in a slower, gentler pace.
