Paris and Larressingle, a balanced way of living.
Macha purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Macha chose Larressingle
It's difficult to describe the tranquility in this part of the word, where time seems to stand still among ancient terraces of Armagnac vineyards, sylvan copses and patchwork fields of sunflowers and wheat. Yet there is also a buzzing musical and cultural scene with events held in most villages most weeks through the summer, including open-air events in Larressingle village and across the area. If you like your music, Jazz in Marciac (60km south) in July & August is a major national event (this year Buena Vista Social Club, Marcus Miller, Chick Corea, Melody Gardot headlining) [http://www.jazzinmarciac.com/] and Tempo-Latino at Vic-Fezensac (23km south) has a more rustic feel in late July (with Ernesto Tito Puentes headlining in 2015) [http://www.tempo-latino.com/]. There are also regular music events on at the various cathedrals and abbeys at Condom, La Romieu and Valence-sur-Baise, just a very short drive away. Then when the urge to go shopping takes over, there is a market somewhere nearby most days of the week. There is a partial timetable at this website: http://www.brouquere.com/gers/event_calendar_en.htm but the tourist offices in most towns will have more information nearer the time. In Gascony, original home of d'Artagnan, it's either all go......or all chill out. You choose!”
What makes this Cottage unique
Among the most beautiful villages in France <a href="http://www.les-plus-beaux-villages-de-france.org/fr/larressingle-0" target="_blank" id="linkme">Larressingle</a> Larressingle seduced me as soon as I arrived in Gascony. But I first stayed near Eauze, then in Condom. Finally with Le Tilleul , its garden, courtyard, swimming pool, its stone walls, its old beams, it was love at first sight.

Lovely Family ( incl Daisy the Golden Retriever) Holiday
Beautiful Gite , with everything you could need for a holiday,
Including lovely courtyard pool with both sun ( and shade) !
The owner was very friendly and helpful but also very discreet ( she lives next door ) available for help or information if required.
We had a gorgeous 2 weeks here , most of time spent around pool as the temp was in mid to high 30s !
The garden was large enough for our retriever to enjoy too .🐾�
Everything was there we required for our holiday , well equipped kitchen , nice garden with large table for dining etc :
The sitting room has a large amount of books, games and some toys
Bedding was lovely quality as mentioned by someone else 👍�🏻�
Beds comfortable .
Lovely 5 minute walk to small medieval castle which is beautiful and has Artisan IceCream parlour 😊�, Creperie , and a pizza restaurant outside the castle walls too !
Road bikes early hired to enjoy local scenery and villages ( there are quite a few hills!!! ) Nice riding stables nearby for Pony treks too .
This is our first time in Gers and definitely won’t be our last , there is so much more to see and do .
Thank you Macha for your help and advice too !
We hope to see you in the future . Joni & Jack X
I am so glad you enjoyed the Gers and our lovely village. I love this place and am very happy to share it with guests. You are welcome whenever you wish to come again of course. . Thank you.
This is an excellent property in a beautiful region of France - I cannot recommend it too highly
This is a comfy, spacious, clean, well-equiped property of great character set in a quiet lane in the beautiful village of Larressingle in the unspoilt Gers region of France.
We very much enjoyed visting the many neighbouring historic villages, towns and sites, wandering through the beautiful countryside, and especially trying the wonderful local food and wine.
But what sets it apart is the quality of service we received from the owner, who took great pains to answer all our questions in advance and to help us make the most of our time whilst we were there.
All the elements we needed for a great holiday came together to make a very memorable experience. I would unhesitatingly recommend this property.
Please excuse my poor French / S'il vous plaît excuser mon pauvre français
C'est une propriété confortable, spacieuse, propre et bien équipée, de caractère, située dans une ruelle calme du magnifique village de Larressingle, dans la région préservée du Gers, en France.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé visiter les nombreux villages, villes et sites historiques voisins, flâner dans cette magnifique campagne et surtout goûter à la merveilleuse cuisine et au vin locaux.
Mais ce qui la distingue, c'est la qualité du service que nous avons reçu de la part du propriétaire, qui s'est donné la peine de répondre à toutes nos questions à l'avance et de nous aider à tirer le maximum de notre temps pendant notre séjour.
Tous les éléments dont nous avions besoin pour passer de bonnes vacances ont été réunis pour offrir une expérience inoubliable. Je recommanderais sans hésiter cette propriété.
Thank you very very much Michael and Ann. It was such a pleasure to have you here. I love this place and I enjoy living here so it is always a pleasure to share this pleasure with guests coming themselves from lovely places. I try to improve the house and the garden as much as possible (next week new sink, new hob,), next autumn a lot of changes in the garden to enhance the great linden and grow more flowers (roses, hollyhocks, lilacs, canas...). As I live not far from the house, it is not a problem for me to be present for my guests should they need any help. And by the way your French is perfect ! See you any day with great pleasure.
Fabulous Taste of French Country Life.
Our stay at Le Tilleul was a lovely respite from an very active five week trip. This is a wonderfully appointed and well-equipped rental that feels like home. There's a nice swimming pool shared with the next door neighbors and meeting them was a bonus for us. Larressingle is a tiny but curt town with amenities, as well as it’s very own castle. We highly recommend this wonderful home and area. We were able to take many day trips all culminating in delicious meals. This is a gem of a home.
Thank you Lynn. News : the swimming pool is no longer shared ! I am sure you would enjoy it this way.
Welcoming and typical
Lovely house, in a quiet and typical tiny village with the smallest imaginable castle...
Well equipped, homely and comfortable. Fantastic, beautiful, place to stay.
A really lovely property with plenty of space for all. Great facilities, lovely garden and great pool.
Larressingle is a lovely place with some great places to eat.
A wonderful home in France
Le Tilleul, is a charming house, on entering we felt it welcomed us. Although it is very old it is well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay in the little village of Larressingle. It is excellently positioned for visiting the many lovely villages, markets, vineyards and of course Armanac. There is a very comprehensive folder of information both about the house and tourist information. So you can make yourselves immediately at HOME. It lived up to its description perfectly and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to mature couples or families. There is also plenty of space both indoors and out.
It was a pleasure to have great travellers such as you at Le Tilleul. The house is now gettîing ready for summertime : swimming pool and lawn chairs...And in the villages around its now time for night markets, brocantes and fairs. We try to share our love of this part of France through a welcoming home.
12th Century fortified village is regularly voted as one of the 100 Most Picturesque Villages in France, with it's partially ruined walls, medieval stone houses and colourful gardens. Nearby, many kilometres of quiet country lanes and footpaths provide peaceful pathways for exploring on foot, bike or horseback. Forests, hills, fields of vines and sunflowers complete the picture of rural Gascony!
