About Maurice Tobin

After living in Norway for over 27 years , I have decided to swap the snow for the sun.I have travelled extensively working on cruise ships . 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 artisanal 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).

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.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to relax and enjoy the real French countryside, but at the same time not far from Bordeaux and Toulouse and other similar places. The house is beautiful and clean with everything you need and more, and the owner was very serviceminded. I do recommend the place!!!

A very nice, and relaxing place!

  • 4 of 5

If you want a nice and relaxing place, in beautiful scenery this is the place for you.

The host Maurice was very pleasant, and helpful.

The heated pool is great for kids, and the city of Tonneins is just a few minutes drive from the house.

The golf is great for some afternoon practice, but if you want a full day of golfing i can recommend the course at Casteljaloux, which is well within driving distance from the house.

Fantastic place to go with family and freinds

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week here with family and friends. La Borde Haute offers everything you need. Not far from all of what the region has to offer.
