General Description

The property was the original farmhouse on what used to be an Armagnac farm in the gorgeous Gers region of South West France - this is Musketeers, foie gras and Grand Armagnac country. The original stables and the original chai (where the Armagnac used to be stored) are still there, whilst the vines surrounding the property have been replaced by cornfields.

The property has been completely restored and brought back to life by a warm and determined couple who fell in love and decided to create a brand new life in their favourite part of the world.

The combination of a highly creative and inspiring woman, and a charming and very organised ex-military officer has resulted in a beautiful home where everything has been thought of, but also a real home, full of the owners' heartfelt attention, care and love. A real home away from home full of personal touches and homely comforts.

The couple's story is so inspiring that they and this property have been featured in a popular UK TV show!

This part of the world is full of fabulous discoveries besides the food and wine.

The nearest village, only 4km away, is Estang and there you'll find your morning croissants and a lovely restaurant and bar, a butcher, fresh produce and a pharmacy. If you need a large supermarket or other restaurants you need only travel to Cazaubon (12km), Nogaro (12km) or Eauze (20km) and there are some great weekly markets in Eauze, Barbotan and Vic Fezensac.

The area is also famous for the historical racing event held at the Nogaro circuit as well as the biggest jazz festival in Europe held at Marciac.

And for winter getaways, you can be skiing in only two hours when not enjoying the warmth and comfort of the house and its woodburner.

This is a warm and enchanting family home amidst sweeping cornfields, dreamy hills and some of France’s most wonderful food and wine.

Here, everything speaks to the heart...
