About the property

2 luxury spacious villas, each sleeps 6. Wheelchair friendly environment

Your summer holiday rental destination consists of two wonderful villas on your own 3.5 hectare of private park, located in Gascogne, a beautiful area of France. In spring you have a magnificent view of the Pyrenees. The large (11x12 m) endless pool will give you great enjoyment during our warm and sunny summers. The pool has its own large terrace, with 8 quality deckchairs. Large parasols will give you the choice of shade or sun. Both romantic villas are well furnished with each their individual characteristics. Each villa has several well located terrace to enjoy your lazy breakfast in the sun or the shade, provided by lovely trees around the villas, or the Wisteria covered patio at the main villa. It makes for a diffiult choice, where to enjoy your glass of wine or have the afternoon barbecue. The villas are surrounded by your own private park on the gentle south slope, overlooking the Jazz village of Marciac. Rental rates are for both villa together, so privacy is guaranteed!

Marciac: The town of Marciac is worldwide known for it's annual Jazz Festival, which has drawn Jazz musicians from all over the world to perform here alongside well known names. When there is no Jazz, Marciac is the culinary centre of the Gers region; known for 'Foie Gras' and Armagnac. The vines of the Madiran and St. Mont wines are neighbours to your holiday property.

Only 10 minutes walking from your holiday villas, you will find lovely lake Marciac with walking ,dining and watersport facilities.Another 5 minutes more and you are in Marciac centre with its beautiful arcaded walkways,local shops,cafes and restaurants.

At 10 minutes drive you will find the superb 18 holes Golf course Chateau Pallanne and horse riding is at 15 minutes driving ! Both places have a restaurant.

It might be interesting for you to know that you have the possibility to take private lessons in the French language. Your teacher will come to your holiday villa for the lessons.

availability of the property: The two villas of 'Le Vert Coteau' will be rented out together, but are also available for individual use. If this should interest you, please contact the owner directly for availability and rates. Keep in mind however that in this case there might be a family that uses the other villa and also has access to our large pool. A great opportunity to meet new friends. Also in case you are interested in renting the property during the winter or for longer periods it is advisable to contact the owner directly for special rates. Check with the owner for last minute rates/availability. Villas are constructed to be wheelchair friendly, with in the main villa one of the bathrooms specially made to accomodate wheelchairs or elderly guests. We found there seems to be a real demand for such a feature.

The Gers is situated in the heart of Gascony and is also known as the Tuscany of France. The region is one of the most lightly populated areas of France with the purest airquality in Europe. It is delightfully free of traffic, mass tourism, and unspoiled by development.

Far away from the stress and strain of modern living, the Gers is a wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life. The Gersois actualy have the longest lifeexpectation in Europe!

You will find youself surrounded by beautiful undulating landscapes of vibrant sunflower fields, gentle slopes of vines and quaint historical hilltop villages.

The climat in the Gers enjoys long hot summers and short winters that are seldom cold. It has an amazing light, wether a hot sunny afternoon, or a crisp autumnal morning, there is a beautiful warm glow that bathes the land.

The architecture and culture of the Gers is as rich and interesting as its history. There is the beautiful château of Lavardens, the historic abbey of Flaran and the fortified village of Larresingle and Fourcès, all within a short distance of one another ... these are only a few examples of the many places in this area to explore.

The Gers cannot just be lightly touched, it must be lived. Whether you live it through the traditional, local markets in the main towns of Condom, Lectoure, Auch or through the fabulous gastronomic delights on offer in local restaurants, hotels and Chateaux – life here is most definitely good !

If you are looking for an easy pace of life, surrounded by stunning countryside and great climate, the Gers is definitely the place for you.

Location: The location of 'Le Vert Coteau' is absolutely ideal. we are in the center of the Gers. Within one hour you can reach Lourdes at the foothills of the Pyrenees. Also beautiful Pau and Toulouse are within easy reach. It might well be the starting point in your search for your own property in the 'Gers' region. Several of our guests have already done so, and found their own dreamhouse. (References available on request) culture of the GYou could walk to the center of Marciac in a comfortabel 15 minutes.

About Hendrik Jan Dadema

Working for one of Europes biggest Tourist organisations and tour operators, we think we have a fair idea about what our guests desire for their well earned vacation when they decide to come to us.

Hendrik Jan Dadema purchased this villa in 2000

Why Hendrik Jan Dadema chose Gers

Fell in love with it when we first saw it 14 years ago. In the worst time of the year, January. If you like a new property in winter without the beauties of the summer foliage and the warmth of the Southern French summer, it must be good. And it was..... We feel totaly at home there, in winter with the big fireplace as well as the summer with out outdoor kitchen and gorgeous pool.

We originaly were looking for something closer to the coast, but this place proved to be so much better. The space, the feeling of safety, you don't feel anymore in the big tourist centers. The friendlyness of the local population and the peace and quiet we find here in our hectic lifes.

What makes this villa unique

When you sit in our cool livingroom in summer with the arched windowdoors wide open and see the Pyrenees in the background. Or have your afternoon tea in the outdoor cuisine close to the pool. Two images that make me feel totally at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Although we took our kids on trips al over the world, the place they wanted to go back to for our summer vacation was 'Le Vert Coteau' in Marciac.

The Hansen family. Norway

We enjoyed our summer at 'le Vert Coteau' and even decided to come back here for the Christmas holidays. (Great skiing in the Pyrenees)

Our stay in Marciac was fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa with 11 adults and one 4 year old boy. We were very suprised when we arrived at the location. The pool is magnificent and the houses are fully equiped with everything we needed. The guidance and advise we had from Jean-Paul was very valueable to enjoy our stay in marciac and the other surrounding towns. We also enjoyed the 'high-tech' kitchen in the main villa. It was a pleasure to cook our holiday meals here!. We will be coming back next year!

Le vert Coteau, everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 and the accommodation was perfect, each group having its own space of which there was plenty. Both inside and out the property was in excellent condition and very well equipped all round. The swimming pool is fabulous both in size and setting and proximity to Marciac being within walking distance is a big plus. Due to the property's setting privacy was complete and with views of the Pyranees, even in the summer, really made our holiday. Thanks to Jean Paul for local information and a warm welcome.

We hope to visit Le vert Coteau again in the not too distant future. Thankyou.

Best place for families, great accessability !

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time our family has spent our summer holidays at this place. We have been here for 3 and 4 weeks at a time and have always been two families travelling together. 11-12 people in all from 10 to 60 years old.

Everybody in every age loves this place and from year to year the facilities has been developed and is just getting better and better. One of our three daughters is sitting in a wheelchair, but has accessability everywhere with even a special designed toilet and bathroom for wheelchair users.

There are indoor an several outdoor places to enjoy the meals and even an outdoor kitchen and grill in a nice patio by the pool. The pool is great and bigger than usual with a fantastic view over the area around Marciac. One of the nicest things is that the place is lying on high ground, in walking distance to Mariciac, but quite isolated from noice and insight.

You feel that you have a large space for yourself, surrounded by garden and forest, but close to everything.

Marciac offers nice restaurants, several bakeries (mmm) and cafe's, and is really a nice and quite place. It has a marked in the square once a week and of course the Jazz festival which we enjoyed this year in august. This was really one of the best festivals we've been to. Even if you don't enjoy jazz, you can enjoy the life, all different kind of music, a lot of nice places to sit down and enjoy different food and drinks. We spent a lot of time just walking around.

For those who anjoy som sports in the morning there is a lot of different hiking and jogging paths, both in the forest with nice shadow and around the lake at the bottom of the hill. We were jogging/walking every morning through forest, wineyards and around the lake.

The area has everything you want, and the distance to the Pyrinees is just a hours drive away. A must is to take the car and go to Pic Du Midi. You can make it a "roundtrip" by the Col du Tourmalet which is one of the hardest routes in Tour De France. Its a lot to expierience of views, caves and small nice cities. You can also go rafting and climbing trees in this area, we spent a day just climbing trees with the kids. (Acro Parc, Saint Lary)

It's not really much more to say, you will have to go to this place several times to really discover all the qualities, so we really recommend that you do...we surtenly will !

A holiday home that was exactly as promised

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three weeks at Le Vert Coteau using both the main house and the pool house. The main house was perfect for the disabled with its newly built toilet and shower room. What a kitchen, what a lounge and what a pool!

We will be returning. Many thanks also to Jean Paul for his help during our stay. In short, absolutely fantastic!

Marvellous Marciac!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic 2 weeks at this villa with our 3 children and another family and all i can say is that it was perfect!. The larger villa itself is so well equipped it has everything you could possibly need, the pool villa was also great. We shared all facilities together and it was so relaxing, the patio area was great in the evenings for meals, and the view just made it perfect.

I f you ask the children, they want to go back next year already, the pool was really big, i mean huge and the fact that it was an infinity pool just made it even more special. The place was clean and very spacious and all our needs were catered for, and what ever we couldn't find Jean-Paul could!! he was very helpful and accommodating and he made us feel very welcome. So overall we would highly recommend for families, i would say that a care is an absolute must and we can't wait to go back!!!!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The best equipped kitchen we ever had in a vacation villa (state-of-the-art electric devises).

Very big pool with a beautiful view.

Welcome package with food on arrival proves very helpful (especially if you arrive on a Sunday afternoon). Very nice personal welcome from local agent. Villa was very clean upon arrival.

Extra-spacious living room with state-of-the-art flat-sreen TV. Beautiful garden and terrasses with good equipment. Very quiete. Well-working PC with internet access for guests.

Small "negatives": second sleeping room has no windows and is only suitable for small children. Therefore, we found that although the villa is very spacious it is not suitable for more than 3 adults. The loom has neither windows nor ventilation.

All in all: we consider to come back in one of the next years. One of the best vacation villas we have rented so far (perfect for 2 adults who appreciate some extra space).

Marciac is located in the 'Gers', also known as Gascony, bordering with the 'Hautes Pyrenees' about one hour from Lourdes and the Pyrenees. Marciac, a typical 'bastide' village, is well known for it famous August Jazz festival. The lovely rolling hills are a perfect backdrop for trips to the numerous beautiful castles just a short ride away. Summer here is warm and sunny, but also spring and autumn have comfortable warm temperatures. Come and see for yourself. If wine is your thing, check out the famous 'Madiran' wines (Chateau Montus) or the the St Mont wines, of which the vines grow next to our property. If you ask any French person about the Gers, generaly the reaction will be: 'on mange bien la bas' (you eat well there). Well, if even the French will tell you that you eat well in the Gers, maybe you should come and try it out. It's worth it!

Other Activities: Marciac Jazz festival

Golf: Within 10 minutes you find the beautiful 'Château de Pallanne'. The 18 hole golf course is located around a splendid 18th century château in a gorgeous setting.

There are several other golf courses within one hour drive from Marciac. You will find that also for a golf vacation with friends, our villas are a perfect starting point.
