If attractive bastide towns, trying delicious cuisine at the vibrant local market, and the perfect mixture of peaceful countryside and luxurious, inviting interiors are on your holiday wishlist, then you need look no further than Au Village, a beautiful Armagnac house nestling in a rural idyll in the heart of the fascinating Gers region, only a few miles from the border with the delightful Lot-et-Garonne.

With plush and spacious living and dining areas, stylish bedrooms and a modern kitchen complete with a central breakfast bar, you will feel instantly at ease in this eminently comfortable home from home.

Delight in such tasteful details as the kitchen’s picture window framing an immaculate backdrop of rolling Armagnac countryside: the perfect setting for quiet contemplation over fresh croissants and steaming mugs of café au lait!

For those who can’t resist the allure of a morning dip, a double bedroom with en suite facilities on the ground floor is just ideal; upstairs three further double bedrooms and one triple room nestle under the eaves, where original features such as exposed wooden beams give a nod to the property’s origins. Covered and open dining terraces and a long expanse of lawned garden ensure that you will want for nothing during your stay at Au Village.

Just a short drive from the house will bring you to the town of Eauze (9km) with its shops, restaurants and bustling weekly market, whilst further afield Laressingle (34km) and Auch (62km) are worthy of a visit. There is ample opportunity to sample regional delicacies locally, including of course the celebrated Armagnac brandy, which gains its distinctive flavour from ageing in oak barrels. Pampering and relaxation beckon at the thermal spas of Barbotan (20km) or Casteljaloux (59km), whilst live music is in the offing over several weeks of summer at the famous jazz festival in Marciac (48km).

  • Pool fencing is erected on request. Please ask at time of booking.
  • For parties paying the Small Party Rate: the ground floor bedroom and first floor master bedroom will be made available to clients. If you require a twin bedroom instead of a double bedroom, please specify at time of booking and the bedroom with single beds will be made available.

Visit a pocket sized Carcassonne!

Larressingle is a lovely little fortified town that can be only accessed on foot. Outside of the fortifications there are a few houses, a restaurant and the reconstruction of a medieval encampment complete with typical weaponry such as trebuchets and catapults. Larressingle is under 30 minutes drive away.

Water slides and Rollercoasters

At Roquefort, near Agen (about an hour's drive from the house), ‘Parc Walygator’ is a theme park with rollercoasters, chutes and other rides for a fun day out. Next door, Aqualand is a huge water park with water slides and chutes. There is also a closer water park just outside the town of Condom: three swimming pools, multi-track slides, whirlpools, spas, water cannons, waterfall and paddling pool. A great place to spend a sunny day!

'Les Nuits Musicales en Armagnac'

Abbaye de Flaran is an old 12th century Cistercian abbey and one of the most visited attractions in the Gers region. In the summer, concerts take place at the Abbaye, dubbed 'Les Nuits Musicales en Armagnac'.

Roman ruins at Eauze

At Eauze, you can discover an archaeological treasure: the remains of the Roman settlement of Elusa. Named after the ancient local tribe, the Elusates, the town was an important administrative and religious centre for the region between the 3rd and 7th centuries. You can start at the visitors' centre in Eauze's old railway station, and continue by exploring the 3000m² site itself.


Thermal baths means that there is a Casino nearby, so you can find one in Barbotan-les-Thermes. It also has a restaurant and a bistrot. Enjoy !

Teeing off

Go for a round of golf at the Golf de Guinlet, just north of Eauze. The 5675m course has 18 holes, par 70 overall.

Messing about on the river

Canoes can be hired on the river Baïse, at Beaucaire-sur-Baïse, whilst motorised boats can be hired at the harbour in Condom.

Anyone for fishing?

Keen anglers can try their hand on the fishing lakes at Castelnau-d'Auzan (about 20 mins drive) or Barbotan-les-Thermes lake (15 mins). There are other activities at both places to entertain other members of the family who may not be able to sit still for very long!

Take a stroll round Eauze

The nearest town to the house, Eauze is a pretty place with historic houses and a good choice of shops and restaurants. Thursday is market day, starting early and finishing around 1:30pm...in time for a nice lunch perhaps!

Gallo-Roman Villa of Séviac

This exceptional archaeological site just outside of Montréal-du-Gers was discovered in the 19th century. A Gallo-Roman villa dating from the 4th – 5th century, it boasts splendid mosaics and sumptuous thermal baths. The site is open for visits every day. To complete your visit, head to the museum in the village of Montréal itself, where several mosaic panels as well as other artefacts excavated from the villa are displayed. Perhaps combine with lunch in this pretty bastide town.

Beautiful medieval villages

For a small department, the Gers harbours quite a few official ‘Most beautiful villages in France’. The village of Fourcès is one of them, with its distinctive round 'square'. Montréal-du-Gers  is another, a traditional bastide town founded by Alphonse de Poitiers on the site of a previous Roman settlement.
