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 Lot-et-Garonne

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.

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).

Everything you need for a great holiday in France

  • 5 of 5

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!

Peace, relaxation and conviviality

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

Breathtaking and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

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.

An impressive holiday home with everything you could want to hand

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at La Borde Haute, I knew we'd made a good decision. We had the most relaxing holiday and this was partly down to the fact that the house is so well organised and has everything you could wish for. We were blessed with good weather. Whilst holidaying at the peak time, the heat can sometimes be a little hot, however we lucked out this year with beautiful sunshine but low humidity which made for very pleasant days by the pool.

The pool, what can I say, is perfect. Heated and super clean. Whilst if you want to swim lengths, it may not be perfect, if it's lying on a lilo or just playing around it genuinely is perfect.

We soon learnt that the Summer Kitchen is the place to use the fridge as it is a bit of a trek (not far but you know what I mean) when you want something from the main kitchen. We found ourselves splitting the shopping between the main and summer kitchen fridges, making life super easy. This way everything was to hand.

Good shopping locally. We found the Leclerc in Tonneins had a good meat and fish counters however there are obviously all the local producers.

The living room and bedrooms are comfy with a good standard of furniture/linen etc. Three toilets to pick from! We couldn't fault anything at all. (There's a loo and shower by the pool!)

The gardens are secure and spacious with plenty to do around the house including of course, the golf. Never before have we stayed somewhere which has it's own pitch and putt and driving range. Clubs and loads of balls on site ready for you to use.

If I was going to be super fussy, and this is fussy, the electric summer kitchen door and gate had a mind of it's own but other than causing a bit of a laugh, if you have young children, all you have to do is watch to make sure the gate is closed etc, not difficult.

A short, uphill walk to the village for a baguette and croissant and this started every day in the way we like it. I admit we didn't really tour the area but this is because we know the area pretty well, so was a conscious decision. Why spend time driving around when you have the perfect home, pool and golf to keep you busy!

As for Maurice, he was and is the perfect host. He'd do anything for you and is very proud of what he has created. He wishes for people to have a great time and will do everything in his power to make sure you do. Highly recommended and we will return.

A fabulous villa with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in this fantastic villa in the countryside, Maurice , the owner , did everything possible to ensure our stay was problem free and enjoyable and although he lives next door he respected our privacy whilst still being available if needed.

The villa is located in a very peaceful area and we had a thoroughly relaxing stay.
