Things to do on holiday in Castillonnes, France

Walking the streets of the historic town centre is a fantastic way to start your Castillonnes holiday, as the town’s long history has clearly left its mark on buildings, streets and monuments throughout. The cloistered square which stands at the centre of the bastide is a fantastic place to start your exploration from a self catering Castillonnes property, as the covered hall, clock tower and beautiful renaissance-style governor’s house can all be seen within a short walk of the centre. The Mouthe promenade will take you from the centre past some of the most elegant villas in Castillonnes, as well as the remnants of the old town’s defences and the baroque church. Details and maps are available from the Castillonnes tourist information office. You may even get to join a game of boules in the main square, where locals meet to play and catch up on the latest developments throughout the town!

The countryside surrounding the town provides a wealth of entertainment possibilities, from the fantastic fishing of the Garonne River to the maze of footpaths and cycle routes which cross the Dropt Valley and beyond. Walking, cycling and horse riding holidays are all hugely popular from Castillonnes holiday rental accommodation, as the lush countryside is wonderfully accessible and magnificently picturesque.

Just spent 10 days here it was great all we could have asked for. With ten of us there was more than enough room,each room has its own bathroom. The owners were very helpful and knew all about the local area. The house was tidy and had all the mod cons. Perfect for us

The Barn holiday home

5 of 5
Date should read 6-Aug-2011, and previous to that 21-Aug-2010. Not available in 2012 This summer 2013 will be the 3rd year that our large family will rent The Barn in Castillonnes, needless to say we love it there. It is a beautiful and peaceful countryside location with confortable spacious rooms, and three very good bathrooms. The house is clean, well decorated and maintained. The previous occasions we stayed we found the swimming pool fantastic, the kids enjoyed it so much they used it from morning till evening when were not doing some activity or another. We also made use of the barbecue quite a bit. While we were there we did quite a lot of cannoning, cycling, walking and chilling by the pool. There were two British ladies who lived nearby that looked after the house, and we found them very helpful and friendly.  We have been going to that part of France for the past 10 years for our summer holidays, and we really enjoy the cafes, markets, delightful little restaurants, cannoning, art galleries, caves with prehistorical paintings, Chateaus, beautiful green scenery and the relaxing pace of life, all of that with great weather.
