comfortable holiday lets in the Gers

The Accommodation

The gites, L'Hérisson and La Mouette have been sympathetically converted from an old barn into two spacious, light and airy, stylish apartments. Privately situated at the end of the owner's property you will have the privacy and peace one seeks on holiday. But if you need any local information or have run out of wine, the owners are on hand! The gites have been decorated in lovely calm Farrow & Ball colours and beds are dressed in white linen with a touch of colour. Surrounded by fruit trees and shrubs and facing avenues of pine trees there is plenty of space in the gardens for playing or relaxing. We have boule sets to get you into the French way of life and bicycles for you to see the local area. Walking and cycling routes are supplied and hammocks are hung in a shady spot for that all important siesta. Otherwise, life is very peaceful lazing by the 10 x 4m salt water pool with a cool glass of local white wine. Both gîtes have a terrace with an eating out and barbecue area from where wildlife such as deer, red squirels, woodpeckers and hoopoos can be spotted.

You may be too late to shop on your arrival day so we are happy to stock the fridge for you before your arrival. Just let us know in advance.

Dinner delivered to your door has become really popular with guests. If you are arriving late from the channel ports or airports or have been out touring all day, we are happy to prepare a 3 course dinner or simple supper, using fresh local ingredients and served to you in your gite. Either eat in by candlelight or on the terrace in the warm evening air. Please give us 24 hours notice or book ahead. Barbeques have also been very popular here - let us take the heat out of your evening and provide a feast of barbequed food and salads for you and your family and friends.
