Make a holiday rental cottage or accommodation in Agen, France your home away from home

Agen, France, is a town 80 miles south of Bordeaux in the Lot-et-Garonne department. As the oldest town in the region, Agen’s origins can be traced back as far as Neolithic times, but it was during the Middle Ages that Agen began to prosper and take the form recognisable today. Set in lush countryside, Agen is surrounded by vineyards and plantations, which produce the prunes which have made Agen such a famous destination of gastronomic tours of France.

                                                                We spent 3 wonderful weeks here. The house, garden and large pool are lovely - with a generous living area and all the bedrooms being en-suite, it's the perfect place for a large family holiday; even down to the supply of toys for the 3 year old. Clive and Sarah have thought of everything and couldn't have been more helpful - finding candles for a birthday cake and even a few indoor fireworks! Although in a really peaceful pretty valley it is only a few kms from the centre of Pont du Casse with all the basic shops. As it was very hot we didn't do much sight-seeing but there is plenty to see and for all ages and lots of lovely restaurants in the area. We think it is one of the best places we have stayed in rural France and are considering going back.

                                                                Beautiful Gite peace and tranquility in super setting. Everything was lovely, the Gite had everything you needed kind of home from home! Hosts Allan and Celia are great company, not forgetting Charlie the Spaniel. Weather was amazing and the pool was terrific. Situated perfectly for visiting lovely places, local restaurants were great. We really enjoyed our stay.

                                                                I have just come back from a two week holiday at ‘Quatre Vents’ (Lagarrigue) with my family and our friends and everybody thoroughly enjoyed their stay in this fabulously rustic house. The bedrooms were spacious and Steve (the owner) was able to ensure they were arranged to cater for our specific numbers. The rooms throughout are in keeping with the rustic feel of the house and were undeniably clean; and as well as enough pots, pans, crockery and cutlery to keep Gordon Ramsay happy, the kitchen had every conceivable appliance and utensil for all our self-catering needs. The property is set in wonderful grounds with fantastic views, and despite our numbers, it was large enough to offer our two families space and privacy when required. The pool was fantastic and enjoyed by both adults and children alike, and the pizza oven, barbecue and outdoor bar were all put to good use during our stay. There is satellite television and indoor games galore to amuse guests, but thankfully the weather was so good during our stay that only the ‘boules’ got any real use. The Thursday night market in Aiguillon was a great place to meet ‘the locals’ who are extremely friendly, and as well as the principal city of Agen there are any number of beautiful villages close by which are well worth a visit. We particularly loved Buzet, Nerac, Pusjol, Poudenas and Duras, and a special mention has to be given to Lac Clarens near Casteljaloux which offers a number of brilliant activities for all the family. ‘Quatre Vents’ is a wonderful base to discover Lot et Garonne, but equally, you will have a wonderful time there if you never leave the grounds.
