“We found the soul of France - lifestyle, fields of gold & tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Looking for the untouched France, - people, beautiful villages and everything within a stones throw away
As a young family - 3 boys, we were looking to immerse ourselves in the French culture for a few weeks - this all started with the residence La Maison de Monsieur Calbet - with it´s own interesting history for rugby fans too
The house itself is a delicate measure of respect for the stone walls - with an added touch to make your stay comfortable with the modern essentials
Natascha and Philipe made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable - providing guides, French markets, cycle paths - from small villages to Toulouse just around the corner...this is a place worth considering

“Would definitely visit again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

You can be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a self catering gite in France. We scoured the internet and looked at numerous gites but when we found La Maison de Monsieur Calbet online, it seemed to be exactly what we were looking for. After Natascha gave us the tour of the house, it exceeded our expectations! The house was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and well equipped. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were spacious, and having two bathrooms upstairs and one toilet downstairs was nice so we didn’t have to wait for each other in the mornings.

The outdoor space in the back of the house was a wonderful place to spend the evenings and we made full use of the barbecue. We cooked our own meals every night apart from one evening when we ordered pizza from Pizzeria Chez Mireille, which was a little awkward to find but their pizzas were certainly worth it! Highly recommended.

Another point to mention is the boulangerie in Castelsagrat which is a mere stone’s throw away from the house. Their croissants and pains au chocolat were perfectly moist and flaky, and we enjoyed their baguettes and flutes for our picnic lunches. Definitely one of the best boulangeries we have visited.

Natascha had compiled a small list of things that were going on during our stay, but was never pushy nor did she overwhelm us with loads of brochures. If she mentioned something that was of interest to us, she was happy to give us more information and sometimes mentioned something else to visit that would be on our way. We visited several other bastides in the area, and enjoyed the markets in Valence d’Agen and Condom. The pool at the house was a welcomed retreat after a day of sightseeing in the 30C+ temperatures!

It was lovely to meet Natascha and Philip. They were both very welcoming and ensured we enjoyed our stay. When we ran into them under the arches, it was almost like bumping into old friends. We were honoured to have been their first guests in their beautifully renovated maison and we expect we’ll be looking to go back in the future.
