Montreal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage in Gers, Midi-Pyrenees, France: Peyrouat is an old farm hamlet, now divided into two properties, consisting of several traditional stone buildings. The pretty, spacious, 18th century cottage is the oldest building on the site and has been recently restored to include all modern comforts whilst maintaining many original features such as stonework, beams and fireplace. The grounds are very extensive and include many old trees, open land for playing games and, of course, the 11x 5 m. swimming pool. (shared with the owner and her occasional chambres d'hotes guests) There is a charming private garden, a sunbathing terrace and a further covered terrace with barbecue for dining, all south and west facing so extremely sunny right into the evening. The surrounding countryside is very peaceful, planted with sunflowers, vines and wheat. Medieval bastide villages abound: the nearest, Montreal, is 6 kilometres away.
Food and Wine: We are surrounded by Armagnac producers and excellent Cotes de Gascogne, also nearby St.Mont,and Madiran. Confit and magret of duck and goose, foie gras, and prunes from Agen are found in the many local markets and restaurants. Great spot for gourmets. Full guides to good degustation spots available!
Tourist Attractions: Local mediaeval bastide villages such as Laressingle and moated Fources. Historical monuments such as Roman Seviac or the Abbaye of Flaran. Day trips to the pine forests and Atlantic surfing beaches of Les Landes; to Biarritz, the Basque region or the Pyrenees. Toulouse and Bordeaux are also within easy reach.
Activities: Within 10 minutes there is a golf course at Guinlet (18 holes). Also tennis, horse-riding,boating on canal and river at nearby Condom, and several pleasure lakes closeby. Peyrouat lies on the Camino Real, the ancient pilgrim route to Compostella. Many modern pilgrims still walk this route today.
