Simplicity itself in the heart of the the stunning Gascon region. This is the perfect getaway for any couple seeking the simpler pleasures in life - fresh food, local wine, gorgeous countryside, daily markets, walking, cycling, and beautiful villages all around.
The cottage is also available for longer lets of up to 3 months for anyone considering moving to the area, taking time off work, or people with an interest in a quiet sanctuary for writing & painting (many writers, sculptors, painters and musicians live in the area).
This extremely comfortable, restored cottage dates from the early 1800s with original stone work & beams. The living area is cool and comfortable in the hotter months. The original fireplace remains intact with the addition of a wood burner for the rare colder nights in late spring and early autumn. The kitchen is fully equipped and the master bedroom, bathroom and bureau have been recently renovated entirely.
The entire cottage occupies a total area of about 72 sq m/775 sq ft - a good deal more generous than a respectable hotel suite.
Outside there is a large, private rose terrace, outdoor seating and dining surrounded by pot plants and small herb garden - ideal for barbeques and long evenings.
Artists love the area for the tranquility, colour, natural light and beauty. Writers, bloggers, cyclists, walkers and off-the-beaten trackers love it for the clean air, long days, peaceful, starry nights and simple but enormous pleasures of living.
There is a French phrase, "le bonheur est dans le pré" - Happiness is in the field. Which just about sums it all up in Gascony.
