COTTAGE LES IRIS: 3 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 5

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Pavie - Domaine de Peyloubere

Cottages sleep up to 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 people in 2,3 or 4 bedrooms

The Domaine de Peyloubere is a beautiful 17th century Gascony estate set in 35 acres of woodland, lakes, gardens and tall trees. All the cottages, which sleep from 4 to 8 guests, have been refurbished and re-equipped over the past few years. Three of them were once the staff homes and have been updated to incorporate modern comforts while maintaining their original period timbered character. 'Les Rosiers' is in the oldest wing of the main house and 'Les Iris' has been created from the old coach house. All have their own access, garden and barbecue and share the heated swimming pool (12 x 6m) and health spa which includes a sauna, balneotherapy spa and sunbathing terrace. The owners and their two Labrador's are resident and have a separate pool. Peyloubere is only 5 minutes walk from Pavie village, 10 minutes drive from Auch, the capital of Gascony, and 1 hour from Toulouse, Albi, Pau, Lourdes, Spain and the Pyrenees.

Historic building - previously home of artist: The Domaine de Peyloubere is classified as a monument historic by virtue of the fact that it was the home of the Italian painter and sculptor, Mario Cavaglieri for over fifty years. Legacies of his ownership are the frescoed ceilings and walls in many of the rooms of the Manoir, the graceful Italian garden and the relaxed, bohemian atmosphere of the Domaine. Although a haven of tranquillity and a paradise to explore, Peyloubere is located only 6km from Auch, the historic and vibrant capital of Gascony, with its famous cathedral and many restaurants, markets, shops and festivals.

Lots to do and see for all the family: Also available on site - table tennis, badminton and a football lawn which is also ideal for cricket and other team games. There are also lakes and a river for fishing and the woodland and gardens for peaceful walks, bird watching and wild flower collecting. Toulouse, Albi, Lourdes and the Pyrenees are within one hours drive and there are many interesting places to visit close by, including Armagnac chateaux, mediaeval villages, foie gras farms, leisure lakes and major jazz and music festivals in Marciac and Mirande. The village of Pavie is 5 minutes walk away, ideal for breakfast croissants. There is also a riding stable in the village and three others close by.

Bed and Breakfast - Chambres d'hote: Two suites of rooms are available for one night or longer in the listed wing of the Manoir. Previously the accommodation of Mario Cavaglieri and his adored wife, Giulietta, the rooms have been fully restored to exhibit the fascinating frescoes on ceilings and walls. The first of these,'The Cavaglieri Suite' contains most of the frescoes and comprises a large bedroom with venetian four poster, a luxurious bathroom and a sitting room. The second suite is 'The Garden Room' with en-suite bathroom. Prices per night for two people including breakfast are €110 for the Cavaglieri Suite and €80 for the Garden Room, or €125 and €90 respectively if guests wish to stay for a single night. Both suites are available all year round.

We moved to France from London in 1999 and our son was educated in Auch and is now living and working in China. We are very fortunate to live in this beautiful part of France and love to welcome our guests to Peyloubère and to share with them our knowledge and enthusiasm for the surrounding area and help them to enjoy a memorable holiday in the Gers.

Theresa Martin purchased this cottage in 1997

We 'discovered' the Gers over twenty years ago and at once loved the combination of a rich history, beautiful rolling countryside, delicious local produce and cuisine, an excellent location from which to explore Europe and, above all, the warm and happy people who welcomed us so generously into their midst.

You only have to drive under the magnificent cedar trees either side of the entrance gate, up the drive into the circular rosegarden, see the ivy clad Manoir with its basque red shutters and hear the song of birds and the sound of water cascading over the waterfall to know why we were at once bewitched by Peyloubère!

A quality rental

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect for my family (2 children ages 3 and 6). Loved everything about this property adn teh rental experience. We were kept promptly and fully informed from booking right through. the owner was flexible about arrival date (we wanted to get back for the olympics) adn was full of excellent advice. The pool and grounds were fantastic adn although we explored the lovely town of Auch and the leisure lake nearby we were more than content to stay at the proprety. Although the pool is shared we often had it all to our selves and the positioning of the various properties was done so well we never felt like we were sharing. Les Iris is lovely and comprehensively equiped. We hired bikes (normal) from cycle watt in Auch and cycled to nearby village seeing a tortoise crossing the road. Magical-absolutely loads to do for kids if needed adn nearby shops. Unreservedly recommended.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for a week in Les Iris on our way to a luxury villa in Spain last year. We thought that the luxury villa would be the highlight of the holiday, however it was this place in France! We have 3 children aged 13, 11 and 9. The accommodation was characterful and spotless. The views from the cottage were lovely. The children loved the dogs which came on walks with us, and the children wandered around the lovely grounds and fed the ducks by themselves. The swimming pool is great, it is lovely and warm, even on overcast days. We had a great day out at a tree adventure park 5 minutes away, but apart from that we didn't see much of the area because everyone was happy to stay at Peyloubere. It was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had and even the teenager who I thought may be bored was sad to leave this place. The children were happy to 'mess' about by the pool, roam the grounds, go in the spa, play table tennis and badminton, read books (supplied by the owners), and watch DVDs again supplied by the owners. Highly recommended - it has a magical quality to it.
