Cottage in Gers, Midi-Pyrenees, France: Peyrouat is a pretty, spacious, 18th century cottage which once formed once part of an old farm hamlet which has now been divided up into individual and private properties. The cottage has been restored to include all modern comforts whilst maintaining many original features such as stonework, beams and fireplace. The private grounds are very extensive and include many old trees, open land for playing games and, of course, the private 11x 5 metre swimming pool. There is a very large and 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 late evening. The surrounding undulating countryside is very peaceful, planted with sunflowers, vines and wheat. Medieval bastide villages abound: the nearest, Montréal, is 6 kilometres away.
Food and Wine: We are surrounded by Armagnac producers and excellent Côtes de Gascogne, also nearby St.Mont, and Madiran. Gascony is foodie country - confit and magret of duck and goose, foie gras, melons from Lecture 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 medieval bastide villages such as Laressingle and moated Fourcès. Historical monuments such as Roman Seviac or the Abbaye de Flaran. Day trips to the pine forests and Atlantic surfing beaches of Les Landes; to Biarritz, the Basque region (and Lourdes) or the Pyrenées. 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, / Chemin de St Jacques, the ancient pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella. Many modern pilgrims still walk this route today, and it is easy an easy walk to Laressingle or Montreal from the house.

Lovely peaceful corner of the Gers.
A long winter break (Sep 17 to May 18, both this year and last year [Sep 16 to May 17]). Cosy log burner, quiet retreat but 15 minutes from Condom. Ideal for us and our two dogs.
Highly recommended. Fantastic pool at the start and finish of our stay.

A beautiful property and location - a truly relaxing break.
Peyrouat is set in beautiful grounds and is surrounded by stunning scenery. We enjoyed our time so much - the accommodation was a real home from home; the boys loved the pool; and we enjoyed the peace and quiet.
We visited the castle at Larrasingle; visited Bordeaux and the local swimming centre in Condom, however, we really did not need to leave Peyrouat at all. We enjoyed bike rides and walks soaking up the sun. Thank you for providing everything... We hope to return one day.

Beautiful cottage and countryside
We had a lovely few days here. V relaxing with lots of space outside with a v well maintained pool to cool off in the afternoons. Surrounded by fields and vineyards with lots of beautiful walking to do from the front door. Would recommend to a family who want a large enclosed garden for the kids to run around.
lovely gite in the French countryside located in the Gers region. Stayed August 2016
The property was clean tidy and well maintained. There is a great pool with sun beds and umbrellas and lovely spacious gardens. The gite is very well equipped and includes BBQ. The property is in a rural location and a car is essential, however, there are lovely villages to explore in the surrounding areas, wine and Armanac tasting at Cassolgnes, Pellehauat etc. Markets at Eauze, Condom and Lectoure worth a visit. The owner has also provided bikes which you are welcome to use to explore the surrounding areas. It ensure a very relaxing holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (been coming for about 9/10 years) and look forward to returning again.
escape from it all
This property is located in peaceful contryside, has character and plenty of space. The garden is very large and the private pool of a very good size and gets sun all day, with water temperature 26-28 degrees. The solar shower is a nice touch. We found the house suitably equiped and perfect for a family of 4, with 2 children (aged 8 and 11). Good wifi and satilite TV if you had had enough of the sunshine! Pool towels, linen and cleaning are all included, so no cleaning on the day of departure. We felt that the price was good value when compared to other properties.
De très belles vacances
Nous avons retrouvé cette belle propriété de Peyrouat avec beaucoup de plaisir pour la quatrième fois. Le calme des lieux, le charme du jardin et la magnifique piscine dont nous avons beaucoup profité nous manquent déjà. Ce pays du Gers est une merveille qui est encore trop peu connu, réservé aux amateurs de beauté authentique.
Montreal village is in the North of the department of the Gers, close to the market towns of Condom and Eauze (10 and 14 kilometres), the two main centres for wine and Armagnac. It borders on the forests of Les Landes to the west and the Lot et Garonne to the north and east. To the south the massif of the Pyrenees is magnificently visible on clear days in Spring and Winter. The larger regional centres of Agen and Auch are a 40 minute drive, while Toulouse, Bordeaux and Biarritz airports are all 2 hours or under. The Gers itself is a very unspoiled, traditional rural area, with a small population and quiet roads which meander over undulating landscape with beautiful views of the Pyrenees. The people are very friendly and the local farms and vineyards produce what the area is famous for: ducks, geese, foie gras, wines, armagnac and sunflowers!
Other Activities: Boating on river and canal
