The farmhouse sits within an acre of land in the Gers countryside with views south towards the Pyrenees. Nearest supermarket, banks, restaurants, etc, are a 10 minute drive away at Masseube. The Gers is famous for it jazz festival in Marciac in August. Auch, the capital of the Gers and the home of D'Artagnan is 25 minutes drive away and Mirande is 15 minutes. The Pyrenees can be reached in just over an hour.
"Had a very relaxing fortnight in August. The house is spacious, light, very cool on hot days, and very well-equipped. Lots of charming original features inside the house, and a copious supply of plums and blackberries in the garden, which has good views out over neighbouring farmland. Good selection of books and DVDs in the house. Pool is clean and warm. Great base from which to explore the surrounding area, easy access to country walks, biking, local towns such as Auch and Mirande, and a myriad of charming mediaeval 'bastide' villages. Owners very helpful and prompt in all communications."
