    • La Petite Hune ( ' The Little Lookout' ) sits on a small quiet backstreet of the historic village of Mansonville on the very edge of Tarn et Garonne, and overlooks the gentle rolling countryside of Gers. Mansonville is an extremely attractive character village with many ancient buildings, and a friendly bar/restaurant/shop/ depot de pain. 

      A charming little cottage, La Petite Hune is ideal for a family of four or a couple seeking a small property for an escape to France. 

      With access to the A62 about 5km away near Auvillar access to the regional centres of Agen, Montauban, Toulouse and Bordeaux is easy, and besides historic Auvillar, the UNESCO World Heritage site at Moissac is less than a half an hour away. 

      The Garonne Canal and the River Garonne are also close by, offering several days out and various sporting and natural activities for Guests to have a truly memorable stay. 

  • Parking is available immediately outside the cottage. 

    Through the main entrance is the open plan Ground floor - Lounge / Kitchen / Dining room

    The Lounge area has large deep lounging sofas, and the television. 

    The Kitchen has a gas hob and electric oven with a good selection of equipment and utensils available. 

    A good sized dining table for 4 completes the furniture. 

    Stairs to the First Floor

     - Single bedroom 

     - Single bedroom curtained off from the Double bedroom. 

    Shower room with basin and storage: Separate wc. 

    House area: 100 sq m 

  • Outside La Petite Hune the garden is well planted with a selection of colourful flowers. 

    A patio area outside the door leads to a lawned area, and at the end of the lawned area is the above ground pool with decked surround 

    A barbecue is provided, and there is also loungers and sunshades for Guest comfort. 

  • La Petite Hune is on the edge of the attractive village of Mansonville, with a bar/restaurant/shop and 'depot de pain' within walking distance of the cottage. 

    Mansonville is on the very edge of Tarn-et-Garonne, and within a few hundred yards you will be out into the gently rolling beautiful countryside of Gers and the Vale of the Garonne. 

    Shopping is a short distance away, just 5km to the historic town of Auvillar and its famous market place, or a little further to Valence d'Agen for a full range of shops and supermarkets. 

    The regional centres of Agen (35km) and Montauban (50km) are both within easy reach, with the main Bordeaux to Toulouse motorway running between them. 

    Many more attractions for the family are found around the countryside: The Garonne Canal has a well established cycle path for hundreds of kilometers between the Atlantic and Mediterranean, with several hire points available along the route. A particularly good one is Café Velo at Agen, based in the old pumping house - worth a visit in itself - right by the main aqueduct very close to Agen station. 


    An international highlight is the Abbey and Cloisters at Moissac - a must see for most visitors. 

    With the river featuring heavily, there are many places to eat out, and the local produce is also available at the markets held most days somewhere close by.
