Our guest house
Lacassagne is an 18th century house, simple, warm and surronded by nature, in the hearth of Gascony. It is located 500 meters from the small village of Larressingle and its famous citadel.
The building has more than 600m² of living space, half of wich is open to guests. Only thréé double guest rooms give access to very beautiful living areas : a large living room, a library office, a dinning room for breakfast and a smaller living room for its privacy. In fine weather, we must add : a covered terrace with a spacious living room and two hectares of park where you can isolate yourself.
The free breackfast is served every morning between 8 and 10am.
Nyima and Christian
Small presentation of the rather atypical owners of Lacassagne...
Nyima, interior decorator, Alsacian (with traces of Austia, Germany, Poland, Paris and Savoy)... Strong character, biker (GS 1200 anyway !). Exercised her talents as a decorator a lot in France but also in Nepal and Chile. She's the sool of the place. She ran another guest house in Savoie for 10 years.
Christian, frequent traveler, organizer and incendentially boss of Tirawa, a travel company that sells dreams around the world (www.tirawa.com).When he is there, he assists Nyima in the Lacassagne daily newspaper. He is also an biker (Crosstourer Honda 1200), but still rides behind Nyima...
In September 2018, during an (electric) montain bike trip on the Chemin of St Jacques de Compostelle, between Le Puy en Velay and St Jean Pied de Port, they stayed in Lacassagne, which was already a guest house at the time, masterfully held by Maïder and Denise... Nyima and Christian literally fall in love with the place and offer them... to buy this gem for them. The process will take a year... and in November 2019, here they settle in the place. Some work is still necessary for an opening on April 1, 2020 !
Around the house
Within a radius of 30km, there are a multitude of charming villages, remarkable sites, monuments, abbey, vineyards... and above all we are baited in calm and nature. Some examples amoung many : Larressingle (fortified village, classified amoung the most beautiful villages in France), Condom (impressive cathedral), Fourcès (round bastide), Lectoure (small town full of charm), La Romieu (manastery classified by UNESCO)... The house is 5km from Condom, 27km from Lectoure, 45km from Agen, 128km from Pau, 130km from Toulouse, 150km from Bordeaux. A very good base camp for discovering the Gascony !
