STUNNING AND SENSITIVELY CONVERTED BARN WITH 14X7M POOL

Saint-Puy Barn Rental Photos and Description

The garden boasts a vast 14m pool with electric security cover. It is part of a larger property nestled in a rustic setting about 1 mile from the village of St Puy. Surrounded by farmland and wooded area, this peaceful location is perfect for unwinding, relaxing and enjoying one of the most celebrated gastronomic areas of SW France.

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.

JUST AS PERFECT THE SECOND TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Complete and utter heaven! This is the second time that we have spent a wonderful holiday at this beautiful gite and I certainly hope that it won’t be the last! I can’t recommend it enough.

We were pleased to find that everything was as immaculate as it was during our first stay at Cauboue. The gite itself is spacious, clean and well kept, exactly as it appears in the photographs. It's ideal for a couple like us, but with enough room to accommodate up to four people. We were met on arrival by the manager, who is English speaking and is available if there are any queries during your stay, who never fails to give you a warm welcome and a gratefully appreciated fresh baguette, a good bottle of wine and a French cheese. He is always there on hand when advice is needed but allows guests their privacy and space. The neighbours are also extremely warm and friendly offering their kind hospitality and invitations to local events.

We have been lucky enough to enjoy hot sunny days with bright blue skies during both of our stays in Cauboue – firstly in September 2011 then in May this year – so have spent the majority of our time lazing by the pool, whilst enjoying the peace and solitude, the glorious views from the property to the beautiful hilltop village of St.Puy or cycling through the local lanes through miles of stunning countryside.

The setting is idyllic for anyone hankering after a holiday in the south of France - not too far from Toulouse airport, an abundance of idyllic countryside, perfect for exploring either by bicycle or car. When the weather is too hot for venturing far, we recommend a swim in the huge, immaculately kept pool or just lounging in the sunshine with a good book and a glass of wine from the local vineyard. Absolute heaven, what more could you ask?!

We have already highly recommended Cauboue to our family and friends - it would be perfect for both couples or families with two children. The trouble with writing a review for Cauboue is that we'd actually like to keep it all to ourselves so that we can visit whenever we want to! It was all that we dreamed of and more.

PERFECT GITE FOR A PERFECT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic week's holiday in this lovely, spacious gite. We were warmly welcomed with a much appreciated bottle of good quality red wine from the local chataeux, a delicious French baguette and camembert cheese. What a perfect way to start our holiday.

We were pleased to find that the description of the accommodation was completely accurate and it was everything that we had hoped it would be. A very well equipped and maintained property, spotlessly clean, with furnishings of a high standard. The gite is located in a beautiful part of France, isolated and peaceful, but still near to local shops and amenities. There is a lovely restaurant in the next village, which we travelled to on bicycles, borrowed from the owner of the gite. In fact, my husband cycled to the village boulangerie to collect fresh croissants for breakfast each morning, which he particularly enjoyed, leaving me to set the patio table in readiness and enjoy an early morning swim in the fabulous, saline pool, which seemed absolutely huge. It is utterly fantastic! The weather in September was fabulous and we spent the majority of our time in and around the gorgeous pool or discovering the beautiful countryside on bicycles.

We would definitely recommend this gite to all our friends and family, who were equally impressed on seeing our holiday photographs. The owners are a delight to deal with and certainly made our holiday special. I now look forward very much to booking this year's holiday with them,

Owner's Response: hardly recognised the place after such a description - thank you! It is a beautiful setting and we are fortunate to be able to enjoy it when we come down here.

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
