Le Tilleul is an extremely old house on the edge of a medieval village, just meters from the castle walls at Larressingle. There are 3 bedrooms, sleeping 8 in total (2+2+4), a lounge and a kitchen-diner. Large garden with a shared heated pool
This is an old village house - called Le Tilleul - just yards from the medieval fortified village of Larressingle - the 'Carcassonne of the Gers'.
The house and garden is yours and there is an 8m x 4m saltwater heated swimming pool that is shared with one other, smaller cottage.
The house has a fully-fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen is part of a large farmhouse-style dining room, with a large table, seating for 8 people and several armchairs as well as the old wood-burning stove in the stone fireplace.
There are two bedroom upstairs (one master with a double and a bigger room with four beds..two of which are beyond a beam so most suitable for children and teenagers) and a third cosy double bedroom downstairs. There is a bathroom upstairs and a further shower-room and toilet downstairs by the doors out to the courtyard and the swimming pool.
The lounge has UK satellite TV and a DVD player with a small selection of DVDs. There are also books, including story books for children of all ages and board games,
Even though the house is at the centre of the village, both the house and the garden are very secluded. The garden is walled or fenced all round, so is safe for children and dogs, and there is a large shaded terrace with a dining table for al-fresco eating.
Zugang für Gäste
The whole house is accessible, with a lounge downstairs overlooking the shared courtyard and pool. Two of the bedrooms are upstairs including the master bedroom (double bed) with its old (unused) fireplace and the main bathroom. A huge bedroom sleeps four in single beds (easy to push together for twin beds) but two beds are beyond a low beam which is ideal for children and teenagers. One cosy double room is downstairs at the back of the house and there is also a downstairs shower room and toilet.
A utility room has a washing machine.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We do not live at the property and a caretaker is your point of contact. Friendly (French speaking) neighbours are nearby in an emergency.
We own the cottage next door too (also available for rent) so you might be sharing the pool with another family. (See information in other sections about this)
Weitere wichtige Infos
The medieval fortified village of Larressingle is just 50m away. You can look through the front gate from the lane outside. It is the most popular tourist attraction in the Gers. However, it never seems to get crowded, even in July and August, and is always peaceful in the morning and evening when you can have pretty much the whole area to yourselves.
Smoking permitted in the garden only.
There are specific house rules related to the use of the swimming pool that are clearly described in the House Manual.
