LA RESIDENCE is a fine old Maison de Maitre just off the main square of this thriving 13th Century Bastide
town in the heart of Gascony SW France. There are double doors into all the rooms which are spacious and airy.
The house is furnished elegantly with antiques and objets d'art and there are plenty of quiet areas in the house to sit
and read. Though right in the middle of the town, La Residence is very peaceful behind its 3 foot deep walls.
Valence-sur-Baise itself is completely self-contained with 3 bakers, a butcher's, Pharmacy, Tabac, Bank, Post
Office and Tourist Office as well as a weekly farmer's market specialising in local produce, and a large Carrefour supermarket.
There are 2 popular bar restaurants in the town square serving good value plats du jour as well as local specialities.
Down below the ramparts there's a further bar restaurant by the riverside in the Port of Valence where canal boats moor
Local attractions include:
12th Century Abbaye de Flaran
with its Monet, Pissaro, Bonnard, Cezanne, Rodin and Henry Moore & season of concerts, exhibitions and summer events.

There are fetes every weekend either in Valence itself or in one of the pretty surrounding villages. Staying
