About Maurice Tobin
After living in Norway for over 27 years , I have decided to swap the snow for the sun.France has a special place in my heart. I love the French countryside , food and wine, and would consider myself a Francophile. I look forward to welcoming guest to my home in France. I will do everything in my power to ensure your stay will be a joyful one.
Maurice Tobin purchased this House in 2015
Why Maurice Tobin chose Verteuil-d'Agenais
My first ever visit to Aquitaine was in 1977 and I made up my mind then that one day I would live here. I love the French countryside , the simple life , the quietness , the long lunches, and most of all the weather. Lot-et-Garonne is perhaps the France that you always hoped existed but could never quite find - medieval villages and sunflower fields, quiet roads and small farms in gently rolling countryside. One of the 'best kept secrets' in France!
What makes this House unique
A house with its own practice golf , private heated swimming pool , fully fitted summer kitchen , beautiful views of the countryside. Walking distance to the village. Perfect getaway , if you like peace and quiet, La Borde Haute is the place for you. Easy access to Bordeaux Airport and Bergerac Airport. The local area is renowned for the production of artisan food products - cheese, foie gras, tomatoes, asparagus, nuts, prunes and of course wine; and its night markets where the produce can be enjoyed at the weekly night markets in La Parade (10 minutes) and Fongrave (25 minutes).

My family and I stayed at La Borde Haute mid July 2018. We found the property very easily and Maurice (owner) was there to meet us at our arrival and show us around the property and demonstrate how things worked. Brilliant - no stress and no problems.
The cottage is wonderfully decorated and we loved spending family time in the evening in the big lounge. Everything you need was in the cottage and it offered plenty of space for the three of us. The weather was hot when we were there and the use of the air conditioning unit and shutters meant that you could keep the property cool and sleep well at night.
We loved the out door areas of the property. In the morning, I would have a coffee on the patio and enjoy the spectacular views. During the day, we would sit by the private pool and often dip in to keep cool. In the evening, we would use the out door kitchen to BBQ some of the great local food as well as making use of the Sonos sound system to listen to music.
The cottage is not far from a small village which has a small shop, however, we travelled to Tonneins (local town) that is a 15 minute drive away. Tonneins has several supermarkets and shops, enough to keep us stocked up with good meat and produce.
We caught a ferry from the UK and drove to the cottage. As such we had the use of a car which is essential to fully explore the area. We had planned on taking excursions out to sightsee, however, we loved the cottage so much that we mainly stayed on site.
We loved our stay and saw Maurice on a few occasions as he checked in that we were okay. Thank you for the gift of cheese Maurice - a thoughtful host.
We would definitely stay again at the property and would recommend it to anyone interested.
Once again, thank Maurice we all loved our stay.
Fabulous property and owner, great location, highly recommend for a chilled, relaxing holiday.
Due to a faulty plane we were around three hours late arriving so the shops were closed. This was not a problem however as I sent a text to the owner, Maurice, to inform him we were held up and he very kindly did a shop for us and stocked up with milk, bread, ham, croissants, tomatoes, fruit, eggs, beer and wine so our holiday could truly begin on arrival.
The property has everything you need and more for a home-from-home getaway. It is very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the outside areas don't disappoint either.
The pool is lovely and the added bonus of the summer kitchen, complete with kettle, fridge, BBQ, cutlery and crockery means you can kick back and stay there all day without having to go into the house - fabulous!
Maurice, the owner, is an absolute star - nothing is too much trouble. He is respectful of your privacy and extremely helpful if you need anything. We asked about rail travel to Bordeaux and he went to the local railway station for us and found out all the details - prices, times etc.
We were invited to his home one evening where he cooked a fabulous meal of roast lamb and we laughed and chatted with him until late into the night. A wonderful host who genuinely loves what he does and cares that his guests have the best time on their holidays.
We could not fault this property, the owner or the location and if you are looking for a complete chill-out then this is the holiday for you.
Everything you need for a great holiday in France
A brilliant place to stay in a wonderful area of France. The house has everything you need, excellently equipped, well furnished and decorated with good Wifi and internet facility. Beautiful and fully secured gardens with the best heated pool we've had in our stays in France. The property really benefits from the poolside kitchen.
Supermarkets 10min drive from the property with lots of small villages around.
The owner Maurice, could not have been more helpful, welcoming and friendly. A true gentleman - You must ensure you take the time to share a glass or two of wine with him!
We look forward to staying here again and seeing Maurice again next year!
Don't hesitate, book now!
Many thanks for your review James. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family.
Peace, relaxation and conviviality
This is a great house, artfully decorated and with pretty much everything you need. The heated pool was most welcome as was the a/c in the house. Loved having the sonos system too, nice touch. Enjoyed the poolside kitchen with gas BBQ and fridge etc. plus the sun-loungers were really comfortable. All well thought through. Loved the area, so beautiful. The location of the house is quiet and peaceful and yet close to amenities. The highlight is Maurice; I was on my own the first three days and my host could not have been better company, a nicer man you could not wish to meet. (We will get to that restaurant one day!). Thank you.
Property was superb, more than we could have hoped for.Made to feel so welcome
We had a fabulous stay in Maurices property. From the minute we arrived he went out of his way to ensure we always had everything we needed. He checked out activities we were interested in like finding us details and making contact with a rowing club approx 20 minutes away so our son was able to have a row with the club. He invited us to dinner one night which was thoroughly enjoyable. The facilities available at the property were such that we had everything we could have needed in both the house and the poolhouse. Pool was kept clean for us and the driving range was an unusual but very enjoyable distraction for all of us.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Maurice and his property to anyone interested in holidaying in that region of France
Many thanks for your positive review. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family at La Borde Haute.
I look forward to welcoming you back someday.
Regards to everybody.
Breathtaking and relaxing.
The house was very well equipt, we did not need to rush out to purchase anything on the first day, which meant our holiday could begin immediately. The owner is very kind, polite, respectful and always happy to help to make your holiday the best!
We were fully relaxed and our daughters really enjoyed the heated swimming pool and we all enjoyed the golf as a family. The views are breathtaking, only being disturbed by some donkeys in the next field...amazing!
Overall this holiday was a fantastic opportunity for my husband, twin daughters and myself to relax and really enjoy some quality family time.
Many thanks for the great review;
