Paris and Larressingle, a balanced way of living.
Macha purchased this House in 2015
Why Macha chose Larressingle
It's difficult to describe the tranquility in this part of the word, where time seems to stand still among ancient terraces of Armagnac vineyards, sylvan copses and patchwork fields of sunflowers and wheat. Yet there is also a buzzing musical and cultural scene with events held in most villages most weeks through the summer, including open-air events in Larressingle village and across the area. If you like your music, Jazz in Marciac (60km south) in July & August is a major national event (this year Buena Vista Social Club, Marcus Miller, Chick Corea, Melody Gardot headlining) [http://www.jazzinmarciac.com/] and Tempo-Latino at Vic-Fezensac (23km south) has a more rustic feel in late July (with Ernesto Tito Puentes headlining in 2015) [http://www.tempo-latino.com/]. There are also regular music events on at the various cathedrals and abbeys at Condom, La Romieu and Valence-sur-Baise, just a very short drive away. Then when the urge to go shopping takes over, there is a market somewhere nearby most days of the week. There is a partial timetable at this website: http://www.brouquere.com/gers/event_calendar_en.htm but the tourist offices in most towns will have more information nearer the time. In Gascony, original home of d'Artagnan, it's either all go......or all chill out. You choose!”
What makes this House unique
Among the most beautiful villages in France <a href="http://www.les-plus-beaux-villages-de-france.org/fr/larressingle-0" target="_blank" id="linkme">Larressingle</a> Larressingle seduced me as soon as I arrived in Gascony. But I first stayed near Eauze, then in Condom. Finally with Le Tilleul and Le Figuier, their terraces, their stone walls, their old beams, it was love at first sight.

A wonderful home in France
Le Tilleul, is a charming house, on entering we felt it welcomed us. Although it is very old it is well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay in the little village of Larressingle. It is excellently positioned for visiting the many lovely villages, markets, vineyards and of course Armanac. There is a very comprehensive folder of information both about the house and tourist information. So you can make yourselves immediately at HOME. It lived up to its description perfectly and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to mature couples or families. There is also plenty of space both indoors and out.
It was a pleasure to have great travellers such as you at Le Tilleul. The house is now gettîing ready for summertime : swimming pool and lawn chairs...And in the villages around its now time for night markets, brocantes and fairs. We try to share our love of this part of France through a welcoming home.
