One of nicest houses we have stayed in!
This is a beautiful house and wonderful garden that is really well kept. There are lots of facilities in way of games other than the spectacular pool with its gorgeous views. It is very quiet which was wonderful.
The area is interesting to visit in but we were unlucky with weather which was a shame as we would have liked to have spent more time by the pool! Would recommend. We were a family with 3 teens and all fitted in to house comfortably.
Thank you Jessica. So pleased you enjoyed your holiday. A shame about the very average weather - you'll just have to come back next year!
Peaceful and relaxing
Had a wonderful stay in beautiful surroundings. The property was in an excellent location for us as keen walkers.Lots of lovely markets to go to all not too far away. The bed was one of the the most comfortable we have had on holiday. The hosts where most welcoming and supplied a great welcome pack coffee ,milk ,bread, juice ,jam, butter even cookies. Also nice to stay somewhere that has bin bags dish cloths etc.
All in all a wonderful place to stay and would definitely return.
Beautiful, peaceful location
Although we didn't arrive until the second week of October,we were blessed with wonderful warm weather for the whole two weeks, so made full use of all the poolside facilities every day. The gite was so peaceful and relaxing which meant we slept really well night after night, it was also very well equipped and furnished.
Kate and David were very welcoming and friendly, you hardly knew they were there, but were easy enough to find if you wanted to ask them something, which wasn't very often as there was a wealth of very helpful information in the gite.
Beautiful house, inside and out
We could see the sunflowers of the neighbouring fields looking out from the pool(side). Very relaxing place to stay, with many things to do and discover even on the premises. The decoration of the house is in keeping with the many brocante and antiques sellers in the area and the owners have great tips for finding them as well as good restaurants and wineries. Highly recommended!
Review in German
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne und erholsame Woche in der Ancienne Boulangerie im September. Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, wir fühlten uns sehr wohl. Meist hatten wir gutes Wetter und konnten den großen Garten nutzen, ebenfalls den Pool. Das besondere am Garten: irgendein Tier ist immer unterwegs, auf den meisten Foto’s erscheint die Henne. Meist sieht man sie gemeinsam mit der Ente. Es gibt dann noch zwei Katzen und Dora das Schwein. Sie ist inzwischen in einem eingezäuntes Gelände und darf nicht mehr überall hin. Es gibt viele Ausflugmöglichkeiten: die Stadt Auch ist sehenswert, Agen hat uns nicht so gut gefallen. Condom ist eine hübsche Kleinstadt. In Castera kann man eigentlich alles einkaufen. Zu beachten ist die Liste im Ferienhaus mit den Markt Terminen. Es gibt zahlreiche Schlösser zu besichtigen, wir waren in Busca mit anschließender Armagnac Verkostung. Sehr eindrucksvoll ist das Kloster in Romieu. Und das Fazit: die Ancienne Boulangerie ist absolut empfehlenswert.
A beautiful place all year round
The friendly welcome from hosts David & Kate enables you to immediately relax and soak up the character of the gite. It has many qualities.
Immaculately clean with towels & linen of the highest quality and very comfortable beds, it gives the feel of a real home. The welcome pack of locally sourced essentials is an added bonus.
Dining on the poolside terrace whilst admiring the views of the undulating countryside is a delight and you are encouraged to supplement your meals with any available produce from David`s kitchen garden. The pool which is always clean and well maintained provides welcome relief from the hot summer sun.
Having stayed there on many occasions whilst we oversee the renovation of our own house nearby we have experienced all four seasons and would recommend a visit at any time of the year. There is so much to do and see in this beautiful unspoilt region of France.
Within easy reach of several villages for basic shopping and 10 minutes from town with shops, restaurants and large farmers' market. Pretty riverside town of Condom with Armagnac museum and boat trips 20 minutes drive. Cathedral town of Auch with large shopping centre 25 minutes. Many pretty fortified villages in the area, Roman villa at Séviac, abbeys and chateaux nearby. For younger family members, water parks at Gondrin and Agen as well as swimming lake with beach and picnic area within 10 minutes. Horse riding 10 mins. Other Activities: wine and Armagnac tasting, foie gras tasting, gourmet dining
