un séjour merveilleux dans un endroit magnifique

  • 5 of 5
nous sommes restés 3 semaines chez Nick et Val, et malgré le temps capricieux nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances. Le gite est très bien agencé, confortable, les propriétaires attentifs, discrets et très sympathiques. Une magnifique piscine pour se rafraîchir, une très belle maison ancienne en pierres, une jolie terrasse pour prendre ses petits déjeuners, déjeuners et diners., et un hamac pour se reposer à l'ombre d'un grand chêne. Tout est rassemblé ici pour un séjour d'exception. Nous reviendrons c'est certain. un grand merci à Nick et Val pour leur gentillesse et leur accueil (nous attendaient à notre arrivée de bonnes confitures maison, une bouteille de vin et un délicieux gâteau tout chaud)

Wonderful stay at Cauboue.

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and our wee dog Millie enjoyed two great weeks at Cauboue. The large gite is situated just a couple of kilometers from St. Puy. The property is very well maintained and has spacious rooms and is very well equipped. There are plenty of films to watch, books to read and games to play. There is a lovely outside terrace, where we ate most of our meals, looking out over the fields and enjoying the wild life - a Hoopoe was a regular morning visitor! The swimming pool is very large and we enjoyed swims most days as the weather was superb.
Richard and Mary were very helpful and friendly and the neighbours up the lane were great. My husband enjoyed some good games of golf at Fleurance. There are just so many beautiful places to visit and enjoy - La Romieu, Condom, St. Puy, - just to name a few. A wealth of places to explore. We also enjoyed some great walks in the countryside with Millie. The food and drink within the area add to the enjoyment.
Nick and Val were very nice people to deal with. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked to return in September, with mu Mum. A gite to be highly recommended!

Super venue for a family with older children.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely gite, The bathroom and the lounge are particularly large and the whole house feels spacious. The gite was well equipped with sufficient kitchen utensils, tea towels etc The very large pool quickly warmed as the days heated up and we made good use of it. It was certainly not just a pool for young children, although of course there was a shallow end. There was lots of space around the pool to sit and relax and the patio outside the kitchen was an ideal place to have breakfast and watch the birds,lizards and the occasional red squirrel. Mary and Richard were very helpful and kind managers and gave us lots of useful advice and recommendations. The property is situated in a lovely area of France and there are lots of pretty and ancient towns and villages to visit within a thirty km radius plus sports facilities for those who require them.This property is one of only a few that we would certainly like to return to and we would recommend it to friends and family.We came home feeling we would like to have stayed for the whole of June but then we did have glorious weather to go with the lovely gite.

Comfortable, relaxing with a great pool

  • 5 of 5
An extremely relaxing place to stay. Comfortable, roomy and well equipped, with a large clean pool. In open countryside, 2 km from St Puy. Lots of interesting places to visit within easy cycling/ driving distance and a variety of local markets to enjoy. Good Wi-Fi connection was a bonus. We will certainly be recommending this gite to family and friends.

Cauboue, St Puy

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely gite despite ten days of cold,wet weather. It is in a beautiful spot,very quiet and private and perfect for a relaxing holiday.
It was exactly as portrayed in the photographs , very spacious,well-equipped and comfortable.
We were looked after very well by the owners' representative who was on hand should there have been any problems...which there weren't! We would definitely recommend this gite to family and friends.
We enjoyed many walks in the lovely countryside, visited the interesting bastides and were never short of somewhere of interest to go.
We were very pleased that the sun finally came out for our last four days and that we were able to see the Gers looking its' best.
We would love to visit again in the future.

Relaxing break in a lovely rural setting

  • 5 of 5
Very good, well laid out accomodation. Everything necessary supplied. Good outdoor space and equipment. We loved the surrounding countyside and the wildlife. We found eating out locally at lunchtime good value for money and St Puy village seemed to have most things that one would need in the shops there. Would be more than happy to go again.

You will probably want to spend most of your time in this beautiful rural location relaxing and reading in the hamoc under the oak tree, or swimming. But should you want to venture out for anything more than a market or a meal there are various activities that may take your fancy: we are situated a few kilometres off the Chemin de Compostelle - so local walking is outstandingly good and superbly marked. There is a tennis court at St Puy, 1 mile away. St Puy is home to the Monluc Chateau where local wines can be tasted and bought. Its sweet wine (or vin moelleux) has recently received rave reviews in Paris. Golf is 20 mins drive away. Cauboue is situated 11 km from the small historic Cathedral town of Condom with excellent facilities, bars, restaurants & supermarkets. Wednesday is market day. There are countless little villages nearby with potential for coffee stops & markets that you will want to explore. For the more hardy, Auch and Agen are 30 km away; Lectoure and Fleurance 20.

Other Activities: plenty of excellent and affordable restaurants
