Gites, Camping and B&B with pool in south west France

Local Area Information

Whether you want to sizzle in the sun by the pool with a book, or do something a bit more active, Le Domaine du Chasselas can deliver!

We provide a range of up-to-date tourist leaflets and our notice board in the games room  is regularly updated with upcoming events and our own recommendations for days out and places to eat.

The games room is open every day with ping-pong, table football, pool table. cards, darts etc
We also have a range of books and DVDs available for everyone to borrow during their stay.

The peaceful, countryside setting provides the ideal environment to listen to the local wildlife (including our resident Scops owls) or to contemplate the thousands of stars in the clear night skies.

If getting out and about is more your cup of tea, the local area abounds with beautiful hilltop villages - Lauzerte and Auvillar are particularly recommended. The weekly food markets in Moissac and Valence d'Agen are bursting with delicious, fresh local produce - guaranteed to make your mouth water! If you prefer someone else to do the cooking, there are numerous restaurants within 30 mins drive - everything from a plate of chips to a Michelin star (and plenty in-between). In summer, most of the local villages have night markets where you can have a delicious meal and be entertained by live music.

For our more active guests there are quiet country roads for running/walking/cycling (local maps available). Or take advantage of the swimming lakes, canoeing, walking, cycling, golf and even water skiing all within a 30 minute drive. Culture, history and a lively Saturday/Sunday market can all be found in the medieval town of Moissac (15 kms) but if you crave a big city fix, Toulouse is just under an hour away.

If this all sounds too exhausting, then just spend your days chilling on your private terrace, relaxing by the pool (May - September) or having a leisurely evening game of boules as the sun sets.

Wine

If you like good wine, we can recommend a visit to Chateau Latuc in the Cahors appellation. it is a pleasant 40 minute drive through the countryside.

They produce award winning wines and our personal favourite is the Chateau Latuc prestige malbec which is fabulous!

They also produce excellent white and rose wines too.
