Mansonville House Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable & spacious 4 bedroom character house on edge of bastide village.

This edge of the village 18th century stone house has been meticulously renovated to provide comfortable and spacious accommodation. The layout is such that two families can be easily accommodated, with three bedrooms (two double, one single) on one side of the house and on the other side an additional sitting room and luxurious ensuite double bedroom, leading to attic rooms that are fitted out with two additional single beds (therefore, the house can actually sleep up to nine people).

The house boasts a combination of charm and practicality with a large family kitchen/diner adjoining a ‘breakfast room/bar’ with double French doors opening onto a lower patio and BBQ area, and, in the lounge, a wood-burning 'Toulouse' brick fire. The lower terrace leads up to the secluded swimming pool which is flanked on one side by a covered terrace - ideal for dining al fresco! Thoughtfully integrated lighting both inside and out, ceiling fans, terracotta floor tiles and authentic beams make this all in all a very pleasantly appointed holiday location.

The village is well-maintained, and includes a small convenience store, providing fresh bread daily and essential provisions. Adjoining the shop is a restaurant, ‘St Saturnin’, which provides a great meal - either 'formule' or à la carte - at reasonable prices at both lunchtime and in the evening, as well as takeaway pizzas. There is a farmers’ market each Monday on the other side of the square from the house.

Visit some of the most beautiful villages in France, the Medieval villages/small towns of Auvillar, Lectoure, Fleurance and Lauzerte, to mention just a few. Take a day trip to the fortified village of Cordes-sur-ciel or the fabulous walled city of Carcasonne (2 hours), or - closer by - Auch, the home of Dâ??Artagnan. The cities of Montauban, (about 35 kilometres or less than 30 minutes on the autoroute) is the Florence of the Southwest, and Toulouse (about 90 kilometres or 1 hour to the centre) often referred to as the pink city due to the colour of the granite buildings, provide plenty to see and do including the Ingres museum and other galleries, the Cite de l'Espace (space city) and Airbus Industries (the birth place of the new A380), and numerous restaurants. Why not take a trip down the Tarn, the Garonne or the Canal du Midi or visit Moissac (about 25 kilometres or 30 minutes) and its Romanesque cloisters. There are many festivals and events, including garlic and wine festival, music and theatre events as well as medieval and craft festivals.

Valence d'Agen (10k) boasts two supermarkets and 'national' market each Tuesday. Plenty of fab restaurants within 15 minutes drive of the house in pretty much every direction (specific recommendations are provided in the information pack at the house)!

Easy access to Bordeaux and the beaches around Arcachon and Lacanau Océan, or Toulouse, Albi and Carcassonne. Just two hours drive to the Pyrenees (and a step into Spain). Plenty of easy half or full day outings to places such as Saint Antonin Noble Val, Corde-sur-Ciel, Cahors, St Cirque la Popie, Roquefort, the Viaduc de Millau, not to mention the broad choice of fine wine regions (Bordeaux, Cahors, Fronton, Gaillac etc).

The region benefits from plenty of sun and warmth through a long summer season, yet has beautiful rolling countryside - great for cycling and walking - as well as fantastic rivers and canals for canoeing and relaxing cruising. From here you can stretch from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, step into Spain or visit many beautiful and historic towns and cities. There are plenty of vineyards and caves, as well as a wide choice of lively markets through the week. Park Walibi, near Agen, is within easy reach for younger children.

Note the layout of the house may suit two families - there are three bedrooms (two doubles and one single) at the front, and at the rear of the property the en-suite double bedroom gives access to an attic with two single beds. So, although we market the house for seven, there are beds for nine!
