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.

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.

The wonderful old gite has a rustic charm, with thick stone walls, exposed beams and shutters. The simple but elegant bedrooms are huge, with comfy beds and crisp, cotton bed linen. It had everything we needed (apart from a dishwasher - our oversight, we hadn't spotted it on the original booking!), beautiful gardens, various seating areas and pool. The main house is stunning. It's in a very secluded, peaceful setting but within easy reach of so many pretty market towns and places of interest within less than an hour (a fair few less than 20 minutes away). We were lucky enough to be there for Tempo Latino in the local town of Vic, and the annual jazz festival in Marciac. We visited castles, abbeys, markets, water parks plus a day trip to Bordeaux, which was less than 2 hours in the car. We had a fabulous time, and would thoroughly recommend Au Mirail.

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!!
