BEAUTIFUL FARMHOUSE GITE WITH POOL AND SECLUDED GARDENS

Demu Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 6

This delightful gite has been tastefully converted from the outbuildings of a 200-year old farmhouse. It stands in a acre of beautiful gardens in a secluded rural setting, with surrounding views of the Gers countryside.

Inside, many of the original oak-beamed 'colombage' walls have been retained and add great character to the property. It is spacious and light, with comfortable modern furnishings - everything you need for a luxurious 'away-from-it-all' holiday.

Outside, you can dine al fresco on the large private patio, enjoy the gardens or spend lazy days around the pool which is only very occasionally shared by the owners, who live discretely on site. The pool has now been enclosed by a fence in accordance with French regulations.

Local Area: The Gers is France's least developed and least populated Departement: land of d'Artagnan, Armagnac, foie gras, sunflowers, glorious summers and temperate winters. The area is full of interesting Bastide vilages, many of which are internationally renowned for their festivals: Vic Fezensac (9km away) hosts the 'Pentecote' festival in June and 'Tempo Latino', a Salsa Festival in July; Marciac hosts its International Jazz Festival and Mirande a Country and Western Music Festival also July. In addition there are regular local markets and night markets in Vic Fezensac. Auch, the wonderful medieval town crowned by its famous cathedral, the capital of Gers, is 30 minutes drive away.

Also nearby are lakes for watersports and many interesting historical sites such as the Roman Villa of Seviac and 12th century Cistercian Abbey Flaran.

Further Afield: The Pyrenees are one and a half hours drive away - spectacular for touring, walking and picnics in the Summer and there is good skiing at La Mongie or Cautertets in the Winter. The famous surfing beaches of Biarritz, St Jean de Luz and Hossegor are about 2 hours drive, and a 2 and a half hour drive will take you to San Sebastian or Bilbao in Spain.

Travel: The nearest international airports are Toulouse (British Airways, Air France, FlyBe), Biarritz or Pau (Ryanair). The nearest rail station is Agen, which is 5 hours from Paris, or Lille.

A delightful, comfortable and beautiful appointed gite.The garden and pool are splendid - Tim & Meg Truro.June 06

Another wonderful relaxing week. It's only by returning here that we really appreciate its peacefulness and beauty - Andy, Jane, Emily, Joe and Abbie, Eastbourne, Aug 06

Dému is a small village on the N124, 9km from the pretty town of Vic-Fezensac. Peyrouteau is just outside the village, in a secluded spot among fields and woods. A 10 minute walk from the house brings, on a clear day, stunning views of the Pyrenees.

There is a garage/shop in the village open seven days selling a good range of food etc.also a boulanger.

Golf: There are two 18-hole golf courses nearby: Eauze (15 minutes drive) and Auch (30 minutes). The latter is a 4,365 metre Par 67 course with stunning views.
