About Tracy Fountain

We are a British family living in Dubai with 3 young boys and bought this beautiful property to spend many family holidays exploring the region.

Tracy Fountain purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tracy Fountain chose Touffailles

A stunning Maison de Maître with a beautiful cottage and traditional tower in a quiet village with amenities, located in the South West of France. Set in an acre of grounds with a large swimming pool and terraces for outdoor dining & relaxation. Next door to the property we have tennis courts and a playing field. The Tarn et Garonne is a popular tourist destination with plenty to do for the entire family or for those seeking a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We have beautiful medieval towns nearby hosting night markets, wine tasting and brocantes plus lots of stunning Chateaux and breathtaking countryside.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is an exciting place for children as we have a dedicated playroom for the younger ones, table tennis, rope swings, a fort, Zip line, and a stream running through the garden, not to forget our 3 free range chickens providing us with daily fresh eggs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed here in July 2017 and found the accommodation to be a well-equipped and maintained character property . The property itself is set in a charming locality with plenty of activities nearby. The house was perfect for our needs and we particularly enjoyed taking advantage of the garden. The kids playroom in the loft was an added bonus!

Steve was present on arrival to run through the basics and he had some good advice in terms of finding things to do. I would recommend this accommodation and hope to revisit again in the future.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week family holiday at this amazing, well equipped, clean, spacious Gite. Great location with all amenities a short drive away. Plenty to do visiting local villages, lakes and markets. Steve was a great host and a wealth of local knowledge he also maintains the amculate pool on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and hope to return in the future.

Cosy home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at the house. The interiors are nicely decorated, with very comfortable beds and plush linens. The pool area is also lovely, with plenty of lounging space. There is lots of space to run around in the garden for kids to explore and the toy room in the attic provides much entertainment. There is a bakery just a couple of minutes walk away and we really enjoyed the swimming lake about 10 min drive away. Our host was helpful and very friendly. The house is also surrounded by sunflower fields, a delight every morning!
