Character 'upside down' cottage for six people.


At Faysselle Holiday Cottages, there are three gorgeous gites set on the side of a valley in twelve acres idyllic surroundings with a shared pool. Our gites sleeps 4, 6 and 6/7. There is no passing traffic, although within five minutes is a local village with shop, bar and restaurant, and a wonderful summer night market.

The main area of attraction for our guests is the tiled swimming pool (10.5m x 5.5m) with a toddler pool and waterfall. Surrounded by sun terraces, there are plenty of sun loungers and parasols. the games area has table football, billiards and darts, and we also have badminton, table tennis, petanque, swing ball and swings.


Couchant is a spacious, upside-down gite with spectacular beams and views across fields and woodland. Downstairs is one double and one twin bedroom, which stay delightfully cool during the hot summer, and a bath/shower/wc and shower w/c. A staircase leads to a secluded twin bedroom which is much loved (and fought over!) by the children as it is 'away' from the parents' room (although still within earshot!). The main staircase leads to a large living/dining area with comfy sofa and chairs, dining table and chairs, and satellite tv. The kitchen area is well-equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, and has plenty of crockery, cutlery and pans etc.

Guests are welcome to explore the property with its woodland and large field leading down to a stream. During the early summer, the field is a mass of flowers including a number of varieties of orchids and later in the summer it is a lovely place to just sit and enjoy the peace, the view and the wildlife.

I am happy to help with ideas for trips out, booking restaurants etc or even accompany you to doctors etc if required. Otherwise I try to remain discreetly in the background.


The Lot et Garonne is a blessed with beautiful scenery and a wonderful climate, and yet has remained somewhat in the shadow of its neighbouring department, Dordogne. We consider ourselves so lucky to live in this lovely area, and yet have few of the crowds, and no traffic jams, that can spoil the Dordogne area. There are numerous picturesque bastide villages such as Penne d'Agenais, Pujols and Puymirol, glorious scenery of rolling hills with acres of sunflowers in July/August and plenty of colourful markets with their tempting displays of local produce. The rivers Lot and Garonne both run through the department, as well as the Canal Entre Deux Mers, so water sports are plentiful or for a more tranquil day out why not just hire a boat and enjoy sightseeing in a more leisurely fashion.

4km to Saint Maurin, which has an excellent general store and doubles as a bar and occasional restaurant. 10 minutes to Puymirol which has bakery, pharmacy, doctor, dentist and three restaurants. 25 minutes to large supermarkets and 30 minutes to centre of Agen.
I have several bikes that are available for guests' use.


We are situated in the south-east corner of the the Department, to the east of Agen. We are lucky to be well-served by transport links: airports included Toulouse (75 minutes) Bergerac (90 minutes) and Bordeaux and Carcasonne (both 120 minutes). By road we are are 30 minutes from the A62 (Bordeaux to Toulouse) and 75 minutes from the A20 at Cahors. In addition, Agen is 4 hours from Paris by TGV, Eurostar services, or 6 hours to Lille, both of which connect to Eurostar services.

I have two dogs, both golden retrievers who are gentle and quiet, and love to play with children.

We moved to France in 1999 and know how lucky we are to live in this peaceful and unspoiled part of the world.
We have loved meeting people from so many parts of the world and are always delighted when they chose to return a second, third or even tenth time!
