Tournon d'Agenais, France

Self Catering Tournon-d'Agenais Holiday Homes, Gites and Villas

Tournon-d'Agenais is a commune in the Lot-et-Garonne department of the Aquitaine region in south-western France. It’s a bastide town, one of many in Lot et Garonne – which means it’s centre is formed around a square, rather than a church.

A stay in a Tournon d'Agenais Holiday Cottage means embracing the charms of a lovely hilltop village – replete with the obligatory central square. The square, known as 'La Place des Corniers', also has pretty stone arched arcades. Its bell tower has an attractive 17th century lunar clock sat below the bell.

Tournon d'Agenais originated in 1270; today it offers stunning views over the surrounding countryside. You can drive to the top - but if you are feeling energetic there are numerous steps taking you steeply up to the top of the village where the Place des Corniers sits. When you stay in a Tournon d'Agenais Holiday Gite also look out for the well and the ancient bishop's house which is called 'Abescat'.

A particularly good time to rent a holiday home in Tournon d'Agenais is during its Foire aux Plantes which takes place towards the end of May. During this time the centre of the village becomes a blaze of colour as specialist plant growers from miles around all come to display and sell their plants.

When you stay in self-catering holiday accommodation in Tournon d'Agenais you’re in the heart of the Lot Valley – it won’t take you long to discover why so many Brits have made it their permanent home. For it is full of charming towns, sumptuous attractions and plenty of beautiful little villages made out of Quercy stone – all ready to tempt you to while away the hours in the local bar or square.

For culture lovers – visit the Chateau de Fumel and Chauteau de Bonagueil. Other notable towns worth a visit in the area include Puy L’Eveque – famous for its Malbec wine. Villeneuve-sur-Lot is home to the area’s plum industry (the fruit and liqueurs!), Villefranche-de-Perigord is a stunning historical village – and don’t miss Monpazier – an outstanding example of a bastide town.

Bergerac is the nearest airport, at just 60 kilometres away. Ryanair, Flybe and Jet2 all offer regular low-cost flights from airports all over the UK. Check their websites for seasonal variations. If you prefer to drive from France’s northern ferry ports, then allow at least ten hours (excluding breaks). The train station at Cahors offers a direct service to Paris Austerlitz station, it takes on average 5 ½ hours.

Tournon d'Agenais enjoys a climate that is much like the majority of the south of France which is mild with short winters, longer summers and no real temperature extremes.
