The region offers a delightful combination of magnificent rivers, rolling hills, sunflowers, orchards, vineyards and forest. Moissac in the Tarn-et-Garonne is famous for its Romanesque abbey and cloister. Close by are the rosy pink cities of Toulouse, Montauban and Albi. This is the 'land of the bastides' - the medieval villages which are an outstanding feature of south-west France. Lauzerte, Auvillar, Beaumont-de-Lomagne, Cordes, Bruniquel and St. Antonin-Noble-Val are all within easy reach. To the west are Bordeaux and its famous vineyards and to the east the vineyards of Gaillac. To the south lie Gascony and, beyond, the mountains of the Pyrénées. Much of the furniture is in the traditional French style, with antique wardrobes and some wide single antique beds (although the mattresses are new). The kitchen is very well equipped and there is Freesat TV and a DVD player, a stereo system with CD player, a snooker table, books and board and card games.

Lovely Location, Pleasant House
Our three generation party, including children ranging in age from 2-16, stayed for a fortnight in this pleasant house in a delightful location near the historic town of Moissac with its stunning mediaeval abbey. The house was reasonably spacious, if a little quirky upstairs with its low ceilings and doors which caused a few sore heads to the adults (though that added to its charm for the children), well equipped and comfortable. The immediate external surroundings were well tended with spacious areas for youthful exploration beyond.
The large pool was superb and floodlit bathing as a special treat for which they were allowed to stay up one night was an unforgettable experience for the younger children. Other diversions include table tennis and pool tables and a good selection of books and games.
Overall this is an excellent property for a family holiday, is good value for money and is one that we'll certainly consider visiting again.
A pleasant review. I'm glad the party had such a good time.

On the route to St Jacques de Compostelle, Moissac is a charming market town with some good food shops, restaurants and cafes (and not many tourists). Market days are Saturday and Sunday. It also has a good selection of boulangeries, supermarkets and banks. Through Moissac flow both the river Tarn and the Canal du Midi. In the summer, there is water skiing on the river and boats and bikes can be hired for trips along the Canal. There is a cycle route along the Canal (the 'vélo voie verte du Canal des Deux Mers').
Close by is the lake at St Nicolas-de-la-Grave where there is canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and horse riding. Bikes can be hired in Moissac and there is also horse riding at L'Escapade (2105 Chemin d'Espis, just off the road into Moissac) and at Lauzerte. For children there is a water park (Walibi) near Agen. Durfort Lacapelette has a boulangerie, a small supermarket and a tennis court.
