Saint-Martin-d'Armagnac Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
5 double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, private grounds, pool, comfortably sleeps 10
An unusual design led renovation of a substantial 19th century L-shaped farmhouse in the heart of Gascony. Villa du Chêne comprises five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a 14m x 6m saline swimming pool, and is set in its own private grounds of mature oaks in rolling open countryside amidst vines and meadows in the heart of Bas Armagnac, the Gers. Du Chêne consists of one enormous open plan living space of 140m² comprising a semi-professional high tech Italian fitted kitchen, dining room and sitting room. A second sitting room, laundry/utilities room, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3 with WCs, 1 bathroom with full disabled access, 2 further separate WCs and an internal covered terrace of 60m² complete the house. The house is fully centrally heated and solar panels supply the hot water. The exceptionally large dimensions of the house (460m²/5000sqft) and the main living area promote open plan living and provide the highest standards of comfort and style. Modernity with a beautiful rural backdrop.
Golf: The area boasts two excellent 18 hole golf courses of contrasting styles - Golf de Guinlet (near Eauze, a 20 minute drive) snakes its way through beautiful, undulating woodland, whilst Golf du Chateau de Pallane winds its way around the spectacular chateau with glorious views towards the Pyrenees and plenty of water to contend with! The latter offers an excellent menu du jour in its attractive courtyard to complete the experience.
Rugby: The villa is situated in the heart of France's rugby country! Local clubs, Stade Montois and Auch, have played in the European Challenge Cup against such famous English clubs as Bath and Saracens, whilst Heineken Cup regulars and giants of French rugby, Agen, Biarritz, Pau and Toulouse all play within striking distance.
Skiing: Villa du Chêne is comfortably situated just one and a half hours drive from some of the best ski resorts in the Pyrenees, making it possible to enjoy day trips into the mountains. Equally many other winter sports are available at these resorts, such as 'raquettes', cross country skiing etc. The Pyrenees are also superb walking country for the summer months.
