Really clean, quiet, idyllic location between vineyards and small villages deep in southern france. Loads of space around your gite and a short walk to the village for essential cheese, wine and an aperitif. Try the Local Floc and Armangnac. Hosts are really friendly and...More

We recently stayed in this lovely and spotlessly clean Gite. We enjoyed its privacy and huge outdoor space. We could walk to main campsite in just a few minutes. Castelnau-d’Auzan is a charming backwater with a weekly market, boulangerie and good shop for the basics(...More

About the neighbourhood
We sit deep in the heart of the Gascon countryside in completely unspoiled and very beautiful part of France. Our guests love the peace and quiet and the unusual rural setting of our gites. The people of Gers are very proud of their region and offer a warm welcome to everyone. The pace of life is just a little bit slower - at times a lot slower! Quiet country roads and lanes wind up and down through vineyards, fields of sunflowers and ancient woodland. There is a surprise around most corners. The area has many pretty bastide villages and historical towns. There are superb markets, particularly in nearby Eauze. It really is a special place and we hope our guests will love it as much as we do.
Getting around
One of Gers claims to fame is that it has no auto routes and virtually no railways. This has kept it unindustrialised and very agricultural, mostly small, family farms. This means that there are lots of quiet roads for cycling and plenty of walking routes. It does help to have a car or motor bike as if you want to explore the region there is limited public transport. The village is within walking distance so you can get to the shop, bakery, restaurants, pool etc on foot in 15 mins.
