1st Class with ‘7 stars’
What an amazing time we have all spent here in your delightful home.
All the members of the family had so much exercise and competitions with the great facilities here especially the table tennis, darts, basket ball and certainly the lovely pool. Despite the weather being slightly changeable – so much to entertain us all.
Your house is well equipped with everything possible for our use and all the rooms very very comfortable – and splendid taste.
Your family must love it here. It was very much like home from home as we also live in a barn conversion with land.
Thank you again from all the family.

James family, Sept 2017

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Magnificent Property
Magnificent Property set in gorgeous french countryside. We took some family and our young 2 year old son. The pool was great and gated so we didn’t have to worry and there is so much outside space and such well kept gardens. The property itself was so spacious inside and full of character. We will booking to go back very soon without hesitation.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Wonderful
The house was very well equipped and suitably rural so we did not feel we were disturbing the neighbours.

Pont Agasse is a quaint stone barn conversion set within a couple of acres of land – the surrounding area is farmland. It is located outside the village (it has a patisserie and general shop plus free tennis court) and 10 mins from the larger town of Duras. The gated pool was good – there is no shallow end but there are steps in to the pool. So potentially not ideal for very small children (who are non swimmers). The décor is in reasonable condition although one or two areas could potentially do with updating eg bathrooms. The property is very clean. There are good night markets in each of the surrounding villages where you can purchase a good selection of hot food and drinks as an alternative to going to restaurants. We used Tripadvisor for restaurants and had good meals every time.

“A family group aged from 12 to 75 and all very well served by Pont d’Agasse which had everything we would have wished for. House; spacious and very well equipped. Grounds; spacious, attractive and very well maintained. Pool; very welcome in the heat of the high 30s in late June. Games room; well equipped and much used. Large barn; spacious, very welcome and much used. We loved this house and love this area: we have been coming here for over 20 years. With Duras (and Don Camillo restaurant), Monsegur Ste. Foy-la-Grande; night markets, dancing in the square in Duras, adorable. What’s not to like?”

“We fell in love with Pont Agasse as we drove down the hill towards the property. The trees surrounding the gardens mean it is a really private setting and as a stand-alone property you don’t feel over-looked. The house and garden are really well maintained and beautiful. Everywhere was clean and the pool was too. The listing was spot on. What a photo or description can’t do however is describe an atmosphere in a house that easily. We instantly felt at ease and could relax.
The outbuilding is such an added bonus either to protect you from the elements or to create a party space. The views are stunning and the light on the fields is a perfect backdrop.
I received excellent service from the property managers and I will definitely use them again. The area is great because we felt we had our own space as well as having access to a fabulous bakery nearby in Levignac, supermarkets and a new hypermarket nearby too. With two airports nearby the area is really accessible.  I have a feeling we will be back. Thank you for a birthday week to remember.”
Helen Robson, June 2015
“We were 2 families totalling 9. There was plenty of room for everybody not to be on top of each other. The kitchen had every type of utensil that you could require with 2 fridges being a bonus, as we had one for food and one for wine, of course! There was a good and varied supply of reading material, with plenty of games, DVD’s and Playstation games for the children. The table tennis kept everyone busy and we battled to see who was going to be the overall winner. The TV was good for catching up with weather and news. Outside the pool was a welcome in the summer sun. There was plenty of land to explore with a swing for younger children if you have any, although the swing in the barn was more for us adults. It was a pleasure to sit outside under the barn roof and watch the morning sun rise and stare out of the picture window over the rolling fields and listen to the birds.”
