    Description

    Grand Soleil's position adjacent to the pool makes it ideal for families, as parents are able to keep an eye on their children.

    Grand Soleil was converted from the old grain store and created into a spacious gite with plenty of space for a family of 6.

    Downstairs is the sunny well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, oven and hob, microwave, washing machine, large fridge/freezer and plenty of utensils, crockery and kitchen tools.

    The living room has sofas and armchairs for all guests and a dining table and chairs. There is television with satellite channels, including BBC channels, and a dvd player. A selection of books and family games are provided.

    A stable door (you can open the top, but leave the bottom half closed if required) leads out from the living room to the pool, and a second door leads to the terrace at the end of the property. Here you will find a barbecue and plenty of space for outdoor dining with a large table and chairs, and an umbrella for shade.

    There is also a shower/wc on the ground floor.

    Upstairs are the three bedrooms and the bathroom/shower/wc. The main bedroom has full length windows (protected) and views towards the 11th century Cambot church. The two twin bedrooms both look over the pool.

    There is a pretty bath/shower/wc.

    Location description

    The Lot et Garonne has wonderful scenery and still retains a laid-back way of life from a bygone era. Life is taken at a gentle pace by the locals, and yet for visitors there is so much to do.

    Golf and horse riding are close by, and there are several leisure lakes with 'beaches'. For children (and adults!) there is the Parc Walibi theme park in Agen, the 'Arc en Ciel' adventure park with aerial walkways set in woodland close to Fumel, a small water park in nearby Valence d'Agen and a new water park at Nerac. There are numerous water sports on the Lot and Dordogne rivers or if you would rather watch than participate there are boats for hire in Villeneuve and Moissac, or canal/river trips from Agen or Nerac. There is a go-kart track near Agen or, for the occasional cloudy day, there is ten-pin bowling.

    Day trips out can include the wonderful scenery of the Lot and Dordogne valleys, Cahors and St Cirq Lapopie, and the larger cities of Toulouse and Bordeaux. The Airbus factory in Toulouse offers tours in English, and there is also a Space Museum there.

    This is a wonderful area for walking and nature-lovers, and we often see deer, badgers, red squirrels and the occasional wild boar, numerous birds of prey, golden orioles, and hoopoes. A walk down through our field in early summer is a delight with several varieties of orchids. Twenty six varieties were found in the local area by a Botanical Society who stayed here!

    In late spring, many of the local villages hold plant fairs. Our favourite is Tournon d'Agenais, held annually on the 1st May, and the village square is a riot of colour from all the plants and shrubs on sale. It is the signal to get cracking on all the pots and hanging baskets which surround our pool during the summer!

    We are close to the wine growing areas of Buzet, Duras and Cahors, and for food lovers this area is a must! Magret and confit of duck, foie gras, melons, plums and soft fruit are all produced locally. Agen is famous for its prunes, and if your only memory of prunes is from school dinners, wait until you try prunes in Armagnac. You will never think of them in the same way again!

    Restaurants vary from basic regional cooking to haute cuisine, and prices from 10 euros for a three-course lunch to the somewhat more expensive (!) Michelin-starred 'Trama' restaurant in nearby Puymirol. Rick Stein himself recommends the Station Restaurant at Agen Station!

    At the end of a busy day, though, come back to the peace and quiet that is Faysselle, open a bottle of wine on your terrace, watch the sun go down and enjoy the silence!

    Other activities

    River boat trips from lovely town of Nerac, Villeneuve, Moissac.
    Watersports on both Tarn and Lot rivers.

    Local events

    During July/August, many local villages hold 'Night Food Markets'. Our local village, St Maurin, holds one very Wednesday night during these months and it is hugely popular with holidaymakers and locals alike.
    Stallholders sell a variety of meals which are then eaten sitting in the picturesque village square. A band entertain us through the evening, which always ends with some very lively dancing!
