Idyllic setting, homely touches

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful villa- with plenty of room for 8 of us. There was lots to amuse us- with the bookshelves of books, cupboards full of games, the games room (with table tennis and table football), swimming pool and the incredible countryside all around us. Amazing to each have our own bathroom. The decor is wonderful- with loads of homely touches, making you feel instantly relaxed. Near to local towns with weekly markets which was wonderful to do our food shopping at and then come home to barbecued french feasts. Views are incredible with snow capped pyrennes in the distance. Lovely place for relaxing, exploring, walking, shopping and spending time in a luxurious, clean house. Perfect for a group holiday.

Larriberau is situated amidst magical rolling countryside with far reaching views and sunflowers! and at the very heart of the Gers in Gascony. The house sits on an escarpment with magnificent views on all sides, outside a small hamlet of three houses.To the South, on a clear day, the Pyrenees-just 50 miles away-are a tantalisingly beautiful sight. The views are truly spectacular,and the sunsets romantic. Amidst such restful country, there's wildlife of all descriptions. But despite the peace, it is not remote. This is the France we all dream of. Peace, quiet roads, the sound of silence. And then good food, and a glass of wine. The excellent vineyards of Madiran and Buzet are not far away, and there is always a good restaurant within easy reach!

Golf: South West France, with its undulating countryside is well endowed with golf courses.

Golf d'Embats is the excellent 18 hole golf course at Auch, the Capital of Gascony, and is a short distance away from Larriberau. Green fees average 35 Euros. There is also a very good retsaurant.

The Golf de Pallane, now an 18 hole course, is built around the grounds of the Chateau at Tillac. Again, you will find an excellent restaurant.

Less demanding are the smaller 9 hole courses at Masseube and Lannemezan.

All these courses are within a short distance of Larriberau.

There is plenty of variety and the courses tend not to be crowded.

Further afield there is an excellent course at Eauze, Golf de Guinlet, and a further course near Toulouse.
