Make a holiday rental home or villa in Gers, France your home away from home

Gers is a landlocked department in Southern France, in the Midi-Pyrenees region. Gers is a very rural region, where the gastronomy has developed over many centuries, and now holds Gers as one of the best places to eat in France. It is a peaceful and incredibly relaxing part of France, where the rolling hills support charming rural villages and wildlife filled woodlands.

Places to holiday in Gers, France

Auch, Gers’ ancient capital is a lovely town, whose skyline is dominated by the beautiful Cathedrale de Ste Marie. The town comes to life on market days, and a villa in Gers can hugely benefit from stocking up on local produce from Auch. When in Auch, a walk along the perfectly preserved 18th Century Rue Dessoles is an essential activity.

Mirande is a town founded by monks in 1286, and is now mainly a market town. Much of the original bastide can still be seen, although not in their original condition.

Things to do in Gers, France

The gastronomy of Gers is unsurpassed in France. This is the centre of fois gras, mushroom and Armagnac production, and fresh ingredients can be found in the market places of many of Gers small market towns, making cooking in a self catering holiday rental in Gers a delight. The Musee de l’Armagnac tells you all you need to know about this fiery brandy, and small independent producers can be found where you see a sign pronouncing ‘Vente Directe’ on the roadside around Auch and Eauze.

In order to work off a few of the extra pounds gained during your stay in a Gers holiday villa, there are 5 golf courses in the department. Auch, Eauze, Fleurence, and Masseuba all have 18 hole courses which are open to the public.

The open countryside crossed by a maze of lakes and rivers means that Gers is a sport and leisure haven too. The Nogaro racetrack has been inviting motorcycle fans to rent holiday rentals in Gers for many years. Cycling and walking are extremely popular, and after a long days sport, there are a range of therapeutic thermal springs to relax in!

Fabulous location!

5 of 5
We holidayed at Au Prada with our two teenage children and had a wonderfully relaxing week. The location is wonderful and the panoramic views amazing. We enjoyed many an hour just sitting (with a glass of wine!!) enjoying the vistas. The pool is a great size and was always a really comfortable temperature. We barbequed almost every night and made good use of the outdoor seating area for both eating and relaxing. We also enjoyed many table tennis tournaments! We had a couple of less sunny days and took the advice found in the information folder to visit Auch and Chateau Lavardens, which are both within a one hour round trip distance. We also really enjoyed our trip to Chateau Mont Luc (St Puy - 5km from gite) where we were able to look around the chateau and have a free wine tasting. There is no entry fee, but its worth asking for a tour of the cellar as well. Our guide was really helpful and had lots of local information. Needless to say, we purchased some local wine as well and the ingredients needed to make a Pousse Rapier cocktail. Alex and Jo were very welcoming and friendly hosts but did not intrude on our holiday at all, but they emphasised that we only needed to ask if we wanted any advice or help. We had a lovely week here and our only regret is that we were not able to have 2 weeks!!

Barrusclet is an excellent accommodation

5 of 5
The house is charming and well situated in the Gers region. It is well stocked, clean and provides every possible activity needed for any age, for both good and bad weather. Our small grandchildren had a wonderful time in the pool area, games room and garden. Every small detail has been considered by the owners, who are very helpful and approachable, and deal with any small problems immediately. The rooms and furnishings are very good quality, comfortable beds and plenty of clean linen. We couldn't think of any equipment that could be added!! We fully recommend this house and would be delighted to return for a longer stay.
