About Mrs Jacky Laurie

We are a British family who moved to the Gers permanently in 2003 after 32 years of wandering from home to home in British Army

Mrs Jacky Laurie purchased this house in 2003

Why Mrs Jacky Laurie chose Marciac

We bought this property as a ruin 18 years ago, for our permanent home, having had a smaller holiday home in a neighbouring village. We have lovingly restored it, then built the house that is now for rent alongside ours, for my mother, who has now gone back to the UK. Sadly at the grand old age of 93 it had become rather too big for her. The area is beautiful, has very friendly people. The weather is wonderful most of the time. The tranquillity and calm is fantastic it is away from the hustle and bustle of life but in an area that has plenty going on.

What makes this house unique

Tranquility, beautiful house, wonderful views of the mountains and countryside.

Wonderful. A haven of peace

  • 5 of 5
A return visit. The house is spacious, light and airy yet cosy and comfy. Spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The kitchen is a joy for the foodies.

The garden and views beyond are beautiful, with a backdrop of the Pyrenees. The location is wonderfully rural but two minutes from the village of Bassoues, where the boulangerie does 'the best' croissants.

We had a fantastic stay, and will return. Thank you Jacky and Mick for your warm hospitality.

Fab, dog friendly, spacious house in lovely area.

We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a spacious well appointed dog friendly house in a tranquil area of the Gers region. The house was very well maintained and equipped and clean and met all our expectations. Jacky and Mick could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful and are hugely knowledgeable about the area. They were also genuinely dog friendly (not always a given with other rental properties despite the marketing blurb!) and this greatly enhanced our stay. We would strongly recommend a trip to the Abbey at Flaran and to some of the local villages ( eg Lupiac & Marciac). There is also a good fish restaurant in Mirande. The restaurant in the square in Bassoues has a good atmosphere but the quality was patchy. Otherwise, we stayed reasonably close to home - this holiday was all about chilling out in relaxing surroundings with friends, family and our respective dogs. The property was absolutely perfect for those purposes and, blessed with great weather, we had a super time and would be very happy to return. The only point to note is that drive from Calais is a long one. On another occasion, we would probably opt for a ferry to Bilbao and a much shorter drive to the house.

Notes:
The Gers is full of things to do. There are weekly markets in at least 3 small towns nearby every week where fresh produce from the local farms is freely available as well as local wines. For the more energetic there are golf courses nearby and lakes where you can enjoy water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and fishing. One such is situated at Mielan just a few Kilometres away; here there are also canoes and pedaloes for hire. The beautiful countryside is perfect for walking and biking. Marciac, also has a lake but is best known for its jazz festival in August. 2/3 weeks of concerts and performances from some of the worlds finest musicians, such as Joe Cocker and Jamie Cullam. For the more classically minded the beautiful town of St Bertrand de Comminges is host to classical music concerts throughout the months of July and August. There is also a Country and Western Festival mid July in Mirande. Various other festivals in Auch, Condom, Fleurance and Vic Fesensac from June to September.
