Property description

Set in a beautiful, isolated site in the middle of the French countryside, Le Tournié consists of two renovated 18th century buildings and a lap pool set on 20 acres of landscaped gardens. Both buildings and use of the entire property are included in the quoted price.

The Barn

This central facility is a recently converted 4,500 square foot 18th century stone barn that houses three guest bedrooms, a gym, sauna, meeting room, break-out area and dining facilities. The master bedroom is on two stories with a private library and large bathroom. There are two guest bedrooms with two twin beds in each (these beds can be configured to be one queen bed per room if desired), as well as en-suite bathrooms. All bedrooms are equipped with flat-screen televisions, WiFi and luxurious 600 thread-count Egyptian linens.

The Country House

This adjoining 2,000 square foot renovated country house contains a large master bedroom with private bathroom and studio built around the home's original stone oven. The bedroom has a private entrance and small terrace garden. There is also a smaller but charming guest bedroom. As in the barn, these bedrooms are equipped with flat screen televisions, WiFi and luxury linens.

The Area

Le Tournié is located in the delightful hamlet of Monbalen, near Laroque-Timbaut in the Lot-et-Garonne department of France. Traversed by the two rivers from which it takes its name, the Lot-et Garonne is a leading destination for nature-oriented holidays and yet it is one of France's best-kept secrets. There are some 200km of navigable waterways, an astounding 3,500km of walking trails, quiet roads through fields of sunflowers, traditional market towns, small picturesque villages and orchards - typically of plum trees grown for the delicious pruneaux d'Agen, a local specialty. In the immediate vicinity, you will also find spectacular biking trails, an 18-hole golf course and a number of Michelin-star restaurants.

The Le Tournié Vacation

The facilities at Le Tournié appeal to those who are looking for a peaceful retreat in beautiful natural surroundings while enjoying luxurious contemporary accommodations. It is the perfect setting for a vacation. If you wish, our concierge Frank can help you design your stay around a variety of active themes such as culinary instruction, body sculpture, weight loss, yoga instruction, local bicycle touring...let us know and we can custom design the experience of your dreams.

The Le Tournié Business Retreat

Le Tournié is equally suited to business retreats as it is to vacations. The facility director is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is responsible for ensuring a perfect sojourn and successful meeting. A large, well-appointed meeting room that accommodates 15-20 people serves as the principal conference venue. The room is equipped with state-of-the-art IT equipment, including computer projector and audio. Great attention has been given to furnishing this room with comfortable, contemporary furnishings and all of the seating and tables can be configured to your specific needs. WiFi is available throughout the facilities. In addition, there are large communal areas for relaxation and breakout sessions. Meals can be prepared on-site by renowned local chefs serving Southwest France's famous cuisine - the chefs are also available for short cooking classes on the property. Many of the ingredients are from the property's extensive gardens. Weather-permitting, lunches and dinners can be served in one of a number of garden and pool terraces. We have a consulting sommelier available for wine tasting events on request. And of course we will work closely with you on the design of an appropriate menu for the entire period of your visit. We are able to organize a variety of special activities that can enhance the business retreat experience, including but not limited to a daily personal trainer, yoga sessions, or personal massage and body rejuvenation services.
