    Description

    If your criteria is an outstanding gite in a picturesque area, then, "Bienvenue à 'Les Peupliers!" Here you will find yourself in a hidden part of France; a lovely landscape of narrow lanes winding past vineyards, orchards and sunflower fields to beautiful old Bastide villages.

    You will be living in a tastefully-renovated, 350 year old pantiled farmhouse in this lovely, quiet and virtually undiscovered area of Aquitaine where, some 100 kms south-east of Bordeaux, two of France's principle rivers meet, so giving our "Département" its name - Le Lot-et-Garonne. Here, you'll find something for all ages: along with the wonderful sights and peace and quiet, you can go cycling, canoeing, canal/river cruising, horse-riding and visit fun-parks with the children.

    This is an area populated by welcoming country people to whom 'quality of life' still has real meaning. 'Family values' is what southwest France is all about. There's nothing the people of the Lot-et-Garonne love more than making time for friends and family - and of course enjoying some of the best food and wine in the world; this is the home of the two-hour lunch!

    On the subject of food and wine, almost every night of the week throughout July and August you'll find the locals partying at one of the marchés-nocturnes that are unique to this area. These are a truly amazing experience. Take your own plates, mugs and cutlery, find yourself seats at one of the hundreds of tables supplied, then wander round the dozens of stalls selling purely local produce.

    Imagine it: you move from stall to stall, choosing your wine, fresh fruit and salads, your pain or baguette, your steak, cut of duck, or chicken - all of which is excellent quality and great value and all locally grown and reared - or if you want to be really French, go for the oysters, snails or moules-frites (mussels) in fabulous sauces! Then join in with the music and dancing or simply sit-back and strike up a comical 'Franglais' conversation with your neighbours - they'll welcome it and love you for it! Now you're experiencing real French country hospitality! Check out our video and see one in action!

    This is also an area of history and discovery. For example, did you know that Claude Monet found his famous water-lilies here in the Lot-et-Garonne? The nursery where he bought them and had them shipped to Giverny still exists and is just a 'stone's throw' away; it's a beautiful place, perfect for a peaceful lunch and tranquil afternoon visit.

    When you come to stay at 'Les Peupliers', you'll discover a myriad places like this - places, vistas and vantage points that you might never find without the helpful and detailed guide notes we provide to all our guests. We did it for Rick Stein; we can do it for you!
    So, like Rick, why not take some time to explore here? Sample the superb food and wine. Meet the charming and incredibly friendly local people. Experience the wonderful luminosity of this gorgeous countryside.

    Relax and enjoy yourself in our pleasant garden. Swim all season round in the heated pool, sunbathe or doze on our loungers, or sit with a glass of excellent local wine in the shade of the traditional and original 'galerie" (covered terrace).

    In the evening, enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beautiful Canal Latéral (below) and sample our 'local' - La Halte Nautique - the bistro featured in Rick Stein's BBC cookery series 'A French Odyssey'. We even offer you the chance to spend an evening in the home of local chef Vétou Pompele, enjoying the meal she cooked for Rick when she was running la Halte Nautique - the meal Rick described in the Sunday Times as, "the best I ate alongside the canal during the whole trip". And, of course, if you're lucky, we may be able to persuade Vétou to cook that very same meal for you too! (See our website for details).

    Location description

    Les Peupliers lies in the valley of the river Garonne, in the commune of Lagruere, 5 kms from Tonneins, in the department of the Lot-et-Garonne.

    The Lot-et-Garonne lies immediately south of the Dordogne, apx. ninety minutes from the Atlantic coast and a little over two hours from the Spanish border.

    Because it carries two of France's principal rivers, Le Lot and La Garonne, the landscape is beautifully verdant and incredibly varied. Broad, fertile valleys wind past picturesque ranges of hills with the two rivers meeting at Aiguillon,

    The economy of the Lot-et-Garonne is heavily reliant on agriculture, with tourism still in its relative infancy. Consequently the roads are very quiet and, unlike the Dordogne and Provence, few places are crowded even in the height of summer.

    You will see growing in abundance, vines, maize, all kinds of fruit, fields of sunflowers, vegetables and many varieties of trees. This is also the centre of the French prune industry. Agen prunes are world-famous! Of course, with the agriculture comes the wildlife; you will find many birds of prey here (look out for magnificent Black Kites riding the thermals high above).

    Our summers are significantly warmer and sunnier than further north, with long settled spells. Rain is not usually a problem as, when it does come, it tends to be very heavy and of short duration.

    In June 2004, the celebrated English chef, Rick Stein, visited the area to film the cookery series, "A French Odyssey". The series followed Rick on a journey down Le Canal des deux Mers from Bordeaux to the Mediterranean and was broadcast by the BBC in September 2005.

    The Lot-et-Garonne is France as most people imagine France to be. Warm, verdant, colourful, picturesque, historic, and very peaceful. With just 305,000 people in a Department of almost 6,000 sq. kms, the Lot-et-Garonne has one of the lowest population densities in all France. It also has some of the best wine, the most beautiful scenery, and the loveliest and friendliest of people.
