If you are looking for a stay during which you can recharge your batteries at your own pace, if you want to take the most of the attractions and services of a 18th property with contemporary indoor decor in the middle of organic vineyard and orchards, if swimming above the trees level in an infinity pool seduces you, if some tennis balls between two property’s products tasting seem to be attractive, Le Pavillon (The Detached House) is the place where you must spend your next holiday. It won’t be only bucolic as the Gers in Gascony and particularly Lectoure offer a rich, varied and exceptional quality cultural program all summer long (Été Photographique, Nuits Musicales of Armagnac, Country Festival in Mirande, Jazz Festival in Marciac, theatre, night markets, bric-a-brac shops, etc.)

We are not hotel trade professionals but we love to receive, to talk and to share our experience of the region with our guests.

Welcome to the Detached House where we offer an invitation to the Spa of the thermal baths of Lectoure as a welcoming gift. Taste sessions in our vineyards as well as advices to cook foie gras for example will also be offered by the owner-producer.

About Sylvie Rosenfeld

Owner and producer of Agen prunes, Côtes de Gascogne wines and Armagnac, the older eau de vie of France, I spent my childhood and a part of my teenage years in this family property. My studies and my International education drove me to live a part of the year in California. This is the essential reason why I rent my house, the Detached House, to guests who, just like me, enjoy a return to nature and all the authentic and kind things it has to offer. The family choice to get solar energy and to exploit and increase the value of the agricultural ground while respecting the organic standards make this historic 18th estate an exceptional refuge for a relaxing and peaceful but also culturally rich and varied stay in the stunning landscape of this wonderful region.

Why Sylvie Rosenfeld chose Lectoure

I live abroad and I don’t want my family house to be unoccupied, so it is with great pleasure that I rent it to guests who, just like me, love to recharge their batteries in an exceptional environment not polluted and without noise on a 148-acre ground fully dedicated to organic arboricultural and wine-making cultures.

What makes this house unique

The assets are the authenticity of the site with its dominating location facing the historic town of Lectoure and its 360° views, its 148-acre ground with organic vineyards and orchards, the oak rabbit warrens, the Quick tennis court, the infinity pool built on the same level as the plum trees and a beautiful 18th century stone house on a family estate composed of Charterhouse, outbuildings, cellars and vineyards.

The proximity of Lectoure, 1 km as the crow flies and 2 minutes by car: the historic town of the Counts of Toulouse, former bishopric and capital of the pastel, many shops and quality restaurants as well as thermal baths that are much appreciated. Besides, it is your welcome gift: 2 entrances in the thermal baths.

If you love wines and Armagnac, it is with great pleasure that we will make you taste the ones of the estate, in moderation of course!

beware of owner's honnesty...

  • 1 of 5

The property is as depicted on the site, except for the outdoor patio furniture which is very old: umbrella/parasol missing its whinch - it needs to be opened by pulling on the rope by hand and tying it somewhere, the outdoor table has a broken plank in its middle and gave us splinters, the BBQ is at least 10 years old. On the first night my 2 year old sat on a patio chair, the set of chairs being as old as the rest of the funiture. Simply by sitting on it he broke a piece of wood making the seat. We thought nothing of it, seeing the state of the rest of the patio furniture, and unfortunately did not report it. The broken piece was small and did not prevent us from using the chair the rest of the week. On the last day of our stay the owner toured the property before we left and told us everything was fine. The next day she refunded our damage deposit less 69 euros to cover the cost of a brand new chair.... After I contacted her and explained that I saw it as normal wear and tear and that we should not be charged, she agreed that the patio furniture is old but went on by saying that the money also compensated for several 'special requests' we apparently made. Those were: 1) a refund for one night as there was a problem with the software when I booked and it was only allowing me to book 7 nights when we only needed 6; the owner and I agreed 3 months prior to our stay, and at her request, that she would pay me back in person for the extra night once we arrived as it was easier than trying to correct the computer glitch; once there however she seem to have forgotten why we needed a refund and repeatadly mentionned that she was doing us a huge favor by reimbursing the extra night; and 2) a week before our arrival we asked if we could arrive earlier than the check-in time of 3pm, to which she agreed, which we really appreciated since we were flying in with three young children. The owner finally complained that we left 30 minutes late on check-out, which is true, but fails to recognize that part of our late departure was due to her asking us to gather all bedsheets/towels and to start doing the laundry before we left (we have never been asked to start a wash of laundry in 10 years of homeaway rental...) - we actually started two loads and dried one of them...She also failed to recognize the late noise (past 11pm) from their house party on our last night. You be the judge as to wether we or the owners were unreasonable. Rent at your own risk...

conforme en tous points à l'annonce

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de vraies vacances dans cette très belle maison au milieu des vignes, avec une vue imprenable sur Lectoure, au calme et malgré tout très proche des commerces. Avec nos 4 enfants, nous avons apprécié le confort des salles de bain attenantes aux chambres, la piscine au retour de nos excursions, la fraîcheur de la maison quand il faisait si chaud dehors, les petits-déjeuners sous la pergola au son apaisant d'une cloche dans le lointain.

Nous recommandons vivement cette grande maison pour une famille qui voudrait découvrir une belle région de carte postale et passer des vacances au calme.

Excellentes vacances

  • 5 of 5

Superbes vacances à Lectoure dans un environnement exceptionnel !

Il s'agissait de notre 2nd séjour au Domaine et nous sommes toujours enchanté.

Le lieu est féérique, on a l'impression d'être à l'écart du monde. Dans une tranquillité absolue...On observe sans être vu !

La maison est très fonctionnelle, bien équipée et la climatisation est un + non négligeable.

Les activités ne manquent pas entre la très belle piscine, le tennis, le ping pong, les promenades...

La ville est à seulement quelques minutes et les visites de la région offrent de nombreuses possibilités.

On ne s'est pas ennuyé 1 instant !!! les enfants ont encore une fois adoré leur vacances.

Quant aux hôtes, ils sont toujours disponibles et très sympathiques.

En conclusion : des vacances idéales !!!

Magnifique maison et quelle vue !!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Les propriétaires sont charmants et nous ont accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse. La maison est magnifique et décorée avec énormément de goût. Nous avons apprécié le mariage de l'ancien et du moderne, les meubles chinés, les chambres spacieuses. De plus la maison est fort bien équipée, rien ne manque !!

Nous avons également apprécié pouvoir jouer au tennis sur le court privatif.

Et enfin, nous avons apprécié le calme, et la vue magnifique sur Lectoure !!

Rien à dire, tout était top !! Nous espérons revenir !!!!

Superbes vacances au Domaine de Bacque !

  • 5 of 5

Nous rentrons de 2 semaines exceptionnelles au Domaine, certainement l’un des plus beaux de la région.

Tout a vraiment été parfait. C’est simple les enfants ne voulaient pas repartir !!!

La maison est pleine de charme, confortable, bien agencée, bien décorée et dans un paysage de rêve, rien ne manque.

Le calme règne en maitre, jour et surtout nuit. Idéal pour se reposer.

Les occupations ne manquent pas : la piscine est superbe avec une vue exceptionnelle, ping pong, tennis en bon état, promenades dans le domaine au milieu des vignes, des pruniers…il y aurait même des chevreuils (n’est-ce pas Bruno :-) )

Nos hôtes ont été de véritables hôtes pas juste des loueurs, toujours disponibles et jamais avares de bons conseils. Un grand merci à Sylvie, Bruno ET Morgan sans qui nos vacances auraient été moins agréables.

Au plaisir de vous revoir à Lectoure ou ailleurs…

Une escale extraordinaire

  • 5 of 5

Une escale de derniere minute nous a fait decouvrir un de ces lieux discrets d'ou l'on domine tout sans jamais etre vus. La maison du vignoble nous a enchantes avec sa piscine-miroir qui n'a rien a envier a celles de Bali.

A tres vite pour profiter de l'ete indien sur cette propriete rare!

Un grand merci a nos hotes attentifs.

Lectoure, Gers Department, Gascony. It is the country of the Musketeers where life is sweet, the architecture interesting and the landscapes, often compared to Tuscany, beautiful.

The property is located close to the train station of Agen 25 minutes and Agen La Garenne Airport with 3 flights per day from and to Paris except on Saturday. These amenities make Lectoure an easily accessible town. Its exceptional architectural and cultural assets and its thermal baths largely contribute to the charm of this place.

A mild climate all year round and an important amount of sunshine also contribute to the pleasure of a stay in Lectoure. The house: 5 rooms – detached – floor – 180 m². Capacity: 6 persons. Beds: 2 single beds and 2 double beds.

18th stone house located on organic vineyards and orchards.

Description: 3 bedrooms, 3 ensuite walk-in shower rooms with double vanity unit, separate toilets, open plan kitchen with central island, dining room, living room, balcony, terrace, garden, private parking, infinity pool, private tennis court, 148-acre ground, free game, solar station by the property and no noise.
