Interaction with guests
I have my own house on site. So I (or my lovely house sitters) will be on hand to greet you.... There's a welcome basket and if you would like us to do a shop before you arrive, just ask. We open and close the pool daily for you, keep you up to date with what's happening in the area - just check out the blackboard for each day's weather, markets & more. If you don't need us, that's fine - we have our own pool tucked away behind our house, so you can enjoy complete privacy with the comfort of knowing that we are on hand should you need us!

About the neighbourhood
Tombeboeuf offers everything you need for day to day life, with a boulangerie, butcher, local shop (selling just about everything), pharmacy and good local restaurant. Just outside the village is a great 9 hole golf course, English owned, and club house - a really relaxing way of spending half a day. To the east of the village is a picturesque lake which is a nature reserve - great for an easy 4km walk or fishing (licences can be bought in the village).Closer to the house is the restored windmill of Coulx - open to the public twice a week and a great walk along quiet lanes from the house - a really great spot for a picnic with the most amazing 360 degree views of the region.Slightly further afield, to the south, is the town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot. This is a traditional bastide town with ...
Getting around
A car is vital. Everything is within reach (the village only 4km) but it makes exploring this fabulous region easy and relaxing if you can just hop in the car and go!
