Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 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. 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 Labrador, Meggie, 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 historique 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 €120 for the Cavaglieri Suite and €85 for the Garden Room, or €130 and €95 respectively if guests wish to stay for a single night. Both suites are available all year round.

About Theresa Martin

We moved to France from London in 1999 and our son was educated in Auch and has recently returned from studying and working in China. Our daughter lives and works in London. 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

Why Theresa Martin chose Gers

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

We love it her -we keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our ninth visit to Peyloubere - our first visit was 23 years ago! – and over the years we’ve stayed in spring, summer and autumn. There’s something very special about Peyloubere that keeps bringing us back. The grounds are always beautifully maintained, whatever the time of year, with a lovely peaceful atmosphere. Photographs can’t really do it justice and certainly can’t capture the lovely Peyloubere “scent”- grass, trees, flowers and herbs – that I always notice as soon as I arrive.

We always stay in les Rosiers, which has come to feel like a second home. It’s always sparkling clean and immaculately tidy when we arrive, the lovely big bed made up with fresh linens and the living room is perfect for relaxing in front of a roaring log fire on a chilly October evening. The kitchen is really well equipped and opens onto the private garden, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book!

Theresa is a wonderful host, always warm and welcoming, never intrusive, but ready with advice and assistance when needed. She does a fantastic job of running Peyloubere.

Though it would be tempting to stay within the grounds of Peyloubere for the whole visit, there’s plenty to do both locally and further afield. Auch is a lovely town with good shops and restaurants, and trips a bit further afield could include, Toulouse, Pau, Montauban and the Abbaye de Flaran with its excellent art gallery. Even Carcassonne and Albi aren’t too far away.

We love our visits to Peyloubere and will certainly be back!

Old fashioned French charm!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the smallest accommodation which is a cottage on the ground floor of part of the main house. 'Les Rosiers' has many authentic features and has French windows spaced along the wall which open out onto a secluded garden. There is a private parking space at rear, with direct access to the road.

Theresa was very welcoming, friendly and available in case we needed any assistance during our stay. The owner and her helpers run the 'Domaine de Peyloubère' estate with military precision - the swimming pool area was neat and tidy at the beginning of each day, and lawns and gardens are immaculate.

The 'Domaine de Peyloubère' is huge (thirty-five acres!) There are five separate self-catering accommodations with up to thirty guests staying when full, yet you would think that you have the place to yourself. The grounds are endless and the only time we saw any of the other guests was at the twelve metre swimming pool, where you may bump into one or two people at certain times of the day! You can trek along a path by a waterfall, walk through a meadow to a lake where you can picnic, or spend a few hours in the sauna and whirlpool - and you haven't even left the property.

A luxurious stay in a beautiful four hundred-year-old building, with everything made available to you in order to make an unforgettable holiday experience.

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our holiday (2 weeks) in Peyloubére very much. It was for us the perfect and ideal place to relax in beautiful, natural surroundings. We rented the cottage Les Rosiers, which is suitable for a couple with up to 2 children. It is as well furnished as described in the listing, and it has a special atmosphere with the old fireplace and the French windows in the large sitting room. The garden belonging to this cottage is ideal for people looking for privacy.

Peyloubére is a wonderful place, which offers so many things for holidaymakers. Our son especially loved the heated pool, which is a fantastic thing when the days are not so hot. We all liked playing badminton and other ball games in the beautiful and spacious garden. In addition, we enjoyed the Spa, which is in a separate building and offers pure relaxation.

Theresa, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. She offers many information leaflets in the main building and you can always ask her for tips, e.g. restaurants etc.

We liked the local markets of Pavie and Auch, the cathedral of Auch (beautiful architecture) and the town itself. There are so many places and lovely villages to discover in this region. One remarkable place and certainly worth a daytrip is the old town Foix with its well-preserved medieval castle and the dunes of Pyla near Arcachon, Atlantic Ocean.

We will definitely recommend Peyloubére to our friends and we hope to be back some time in the near future.

Peyloubere 2015

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in the b&b part of this propery before and have always been very comfortable. this time we had the smallest of the cottages, Les Rosiers, which was clean, well appointed ans spacious. The rooms were huge but the layout means that it is only suitable for a couple perhaps with small children. The property itself is lovely with massive gardens and a beautiful pool. Les Rosiers also has its own garden at the back. The owner, as always, was friendly and helpful. and her restaurant recommendations (Hotel de France, Auch and Le Florida, Castera) were excellent. We would certainly recommend Peyloubere to friends who wanted a relaxing Holiday in pretty countryside.
