Holidays in S W France

Las Razes


If you are looking for somewhere special for your holiday in France then please take a closer look at Las Razes.

Las Razes was created from an old farmstead nestled above one of the quiet rural valleys of this area of South West France,  offering holiday accommodation suitable for many different types of holidays in France. 

  • A great location for a large family gîte holiday - sleeping up to 15 people
  • For smaller groups (out of Peak Season) - even as few as 4 - our  space with its intimate little terraces works equally as well
  • An ideal base for discovering this beguiling corner of theMidi-Pyrenees in South West France.
  • A great base for group activities - walking/painting/retreat etc.
  • Most of the markets and activities in France take place at the weekend, so it is a shame to be arriving or leaving then.  We try to be as flexible as we can on changeover dates.
  • Plenty to do without going anywhere - heated swimming-pool, snooker, bikes, darts, terrace chess, table tennis and library.
  • The thing that sets us apart is that, whatever the weather (and don't tell anyone but it does sometimes rain in France), we genuinely have the indoor space for you all to relax indoors and eat indoors - together! Our outdoor seating options allow for cosy 'dinner for 2' or a 'banquet for 15'.  

At one side of the huge barn you will find our 6 bedrooms each of which opens out onto a wide and shady balcony or floral terrace, so you will never be short of a spot for quiet reading, the odd glass of wine or just to enjoy the scenery. Each room is south facing and has an en-suite shower room. 


We have a mixture of double (one of which has an adjoining bedroom with bunk beds), three of our double rooms have super king-size beds, and one a king-size there are also twin rooms - some rooms have space of an additional Z bed if required.  Additionally one of our doubles can have a connecting door opened to one of our twin rooms - for families with younger children. For cooler months each room has an electric heater. We can also place a full size or travel cot in most of the rooms.

At the other side of the barn there is a vast dining/sitting room with, at one end, a sunny breakfast room, opening onto gardens and terraces and also a games room.  This barn has been carefully restored and retains its old oak beams, stonewalls and log burning stoves.

The sitting room has dvd/cd players, ¾ snooker table, dartboard along with a selection of board games and an English library.  Satalite TV (from UK) is available in the dining room /lounge.  There are plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs, so everyone should be able to find a quiet place any you will never find yourselves short of space. 


WIFI (open) available in the lounge/dining room.

The terraced pool area is situated below the bedrooms and there is plenty of garden furniture, allowing you to enjoy fully this beautiful pool area.  This heated 12 x 5 meter salt-water pool provides an ideal focus for your holiday. (Pool heating between  May and September subject to suitable air temperatures).  Most of our terraces are protected from the sun by UV filtering sail-shades, providing a safer and more comfortable way to enjoy the warmth.


From May to October Las Razes offers comfortable accommodation, deep in the heart of the Tarn et Garonne countryside and close to the village of Touffailles.

Touffailles is a pretty little village set amongst the rolling hills between the larger villages of Lauzerte and Montaigu de Quercy.  This striking agricultural area bordered by the River Lot (to the North) and the River Garonne (to the South) provides an ever changing backdrop of fruit trees, sunflowers, cereals, melons, vines and cattle. 

Visitors staying at Las Razes can take the opportunity to visit many attractive places in the area.  Amongst the favourites are Cahors, Agen, Montauban, Villeneurve-sur-Lot, Puy L’Eveque, Montcuq, Moissac, Auvillar, Valance, Tournon D’Agenais, Penne D’Agenais, Castlesarrasin, Cirq Lapopie, Lauzerte, Montjoi, Brassac, Beauville, Bourg de Visa, Montaigu de Quercy, Miramont de Quercy, Castlesagrat, St Nicholas de Grave, Fummel, Chateau de Bonaguil, Puymirol and further afield the Millau Bridge, Sarlat, Bergerac, Toulouse, and Albi.

We hope that we can provide you with a good value base for your Holiday in France, whether you want a lazy time with a book and a glass of wine, a walking adventure, to sit and paint or a chance to tour the local medieval villages and local markets.  There is plenty to do without leaving Las Razes but when (or if) you are wanting to venture further we are on hand to help you with the information you will need.
