Where to start? Anne & Christophe live in the farmhouse just down the road and were very helpful and accomodating. The house and property is an absolute dream. Our family of 7 (5 kids) were so comfortable we could have stayed forever. Anne is very talented and has restored the property and home to perfection. We loved everything about Gite de Montastruc, especially our hosts and hope to go back soon.
Lectoure is a beautiful very old walled town composed almost entirely of attractive buildings in the local honey coloured limestone. There are no shortage of fine restaurants,bars, boulangeries, patisseries, one chocolate cafe, with many antiques and collectable shops. My favorite bar was just a few doors down from the apartment owned by a lovely, elderly older lady, but the most well known and most popular is opposite the cinema on the main street.
The focal point of the town is the old cathedral, a popular tourist attraction and right beside it is the apartment.
Emmanuelle has gone to great lengths to create an atmosphere of comfort, while remaining true to the original style of the building. To stay there gives you a feeling of going back in time, while at the same time giving you every comfort.
We loved the apartment and the ability to eat out in the evenings, with a bottle of wine and then less than a five minute stroll home.
