Pie Pasquie
Pie Pasquie is a 6 bedroom 16th century manoir, formerly a gentleman's residence and hunting lodge, set within 6 acres - perfect for a family looking for peace and quiet. Tastefully refurbished yet retaining a number of its original features including the original stone staircase, oak beams and pigeonnier tower, it's been lovingly brought into the 21st century. It's set in huge grounds and a fenced and gated garden and pool area for safety....plenty of space for football, cricket and any other games you can think of. The fenced and gated inner garden area ensures your pets are safe and there's plenty of space for exercise, it's a very pet friendly property.

It's situated on the outskirts of the small village of Vares just north of Tonneins on the banks of the river Garonne in the heart of the French countryside, the area is known as a paradise for fishing enthusiasts. Vares offers a local store (selling bread and newspapers), a convenience store and a bar. Tonneins hosts a large selection of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants and weekly markets.

This is such a great area for fishing enthusiasts. The lake in Vares has sizeable carp, tench, perch, roach, rudd and pike. This is a 2-3 minute drive away or can be walked. The river Garonne and river Lot, within 10 and 20 minutes respectively, have large carp, black bass, pike and catfish. In fact the river Lot holds lots of records....more info can be found on the internet. You can buy a holiday fishing permit locally for around €20.

At the end of each rental we ask our clients for comments on their stay - we hope that the following comments will help making your choice of property easier

  • We all had a really amazing holiday, we just wish we was all back there now. (August 2019)
  • Wow...what can I say...Pie Pasquie is absolutely beautiful and gave us the best family holiday. When we arrived we were so surprised just how beautiful the exterior of the house is and then inside is just as lovely, the spiral staircase is a lovely feature and the house has everything you could need and was spotlessly clean! The kitchen is lovely and open plan and so well equipped with everything you need... (cont'd)
  • ...We cooked most days and had lots of family meals around the outside table which is right by the pool and covered well to provide shade which was most needed! Added bonus of a BBQ and fridge in the outside area and it's right by the pool which was really handy to keep an eye on the children when they wanted to continue to play and swim! The pool is extremely clean and well looked after and is in a lovely safe area with plenty of sun beds and a shaded area if wanted... (cont'd)
  • ...My children loved it especially the Jet pool! The house is surrounded by well kept fields and lovely corn and sunflower fields which are so pretty! And everywhere is so secure which is excellent when having the children and dog with us. Lastly Kerry and Colleen were excellent hosts, they gave us a lovely greeting and were always there for excellent advice when needed they couldn't have done any more to make us feel more welcome. It was home from home and we cannot wait to visit again! (July 2019)
  • An extremely professional and caring company. All aspects of the holiday process were efficient and transparent, from use of their web site for choosing the accommodation, the intuitive booking process, their prompt replies to enquiries and providing a wealth of useful information and finally, chasing me to return my security deposit! The service delivered by Richard and French Gite holidays has been exemplary! (July 2019)
  • Wow what an amazing gite & grounds! We was a family of 8 with a dog. The house is very well equipped & we wanted for nothing. The American fridge/freezer with an ice maker was great especially as we had very hot weather. The pool & jacuzzi were fantastic and we used them everyday and were kept spotless. Colleen & Kerry couldn’t do enough to make our stay more special, we celebrated an 80th, 50th & 18th birthday under the covered seated area near the pool which was fantastic... (cont'd)
  • cont'd..The BBQ area was great which we used every other night. Lots of places to visit, you really need to get out & about and visit the night markets they were great and had lovely food to try! The gardens are fully secured & kept well maintained so no worry for small children & dogs. For large families the house is perfect and we can highly recommend this gite. All being well we are planning to return next year. Thanks again for such an amazing holiday. (July 2019)
  • Great accomodation with all the facilities you need. The swimming pool was very secure and the covered terrace next to it was our favourite place during our stay. Colleen and Kerry made up the rooms to fit our group needs and were very kind. We highly recommend Pie Pasquie for big groups. (August 2018)
  • We have just returned from a fabulous week at Pie Pasquie. A great family holiday, ideal for 2 families sharing. The house and the grounds were perfect for our children (5 children in total). Great outdoor space and the pool entertained them for hours. The adults took a dip every now and then when they got too hot! The house was stunning with loads of character, a large open living space downstairs and the bedrooms were all ideal for our families.....continued below. (July 2018)
  • ...Well equipped kitchen. There is a lovely outdoor covered seating area to eat your meals at plus charcoal BBQ which is close to pool area so you can keep an eye on the kids! Driving from the property there is lots to explore if you're happy to go further afield. We had had a great holiday at Pie Pasquie and would highly recommend the property. (July 2018)
  • Excellent Gite Well done (September 2017)
  • Jolie maison, très agréable en famille. Terrasse couverte appréciable car nous avons eu un peu de pluie. (July 2017)
  • The family on site were exceptional. They were extremely helpful throughout especially when we had a medical emergency. They helped us with the area, the vets and places of interest. They were there when we needed them. (May 2017)
  • all thoroughly enjoyed our time out there (September 2016)
  • On a passé un très agréable séjour au Pie Pasquie. Ambiance très calme et journées ensoleillées!... Merci beaucoup. Merci de vôtre accueil et de vôtre gentillesse ! (April 2015)
  • we had a fantastic week. it is a charming old home and the owners are doing it up beautifully whilst preserving the buildings integrity. Well done. (September 2014)
  • Loved the house, pool and gardens. The owners were also extremely helpful on local knowledge for tours, days out, restaurants and where to buy food. Fantastic holiday, thank you for making us feel so welcome. Will definately recommmend you. (August 2014)
