What a wonderful place to stay, everything we needed in a whisper quiet location. Everything was as described and easy to get used to, internet was super fast, maybe faster than I get in Australia. The pool was a welcome extra after a hot day out walking and sightseeing. Jennifer was very quick in answering any questions I had (coming from OZ I wanted to make sure everything we needed was there). Would I stay again, absolutely, a definite home from home. My wife and I needed some time to recharge ourselves after a hard year and we found the perfect place to do that. Thank you for the opportunity of staying in a part of France that I may not have chosen but glad I did.
Amazing view and fantastic outdoor area
This house is so lovely and cute. There is all you need in the kitchen, and it is very Nice you don't need to bring linnen to the beds. The view is amazing and the pool and outdoor area is so lovely. The keeper of the house is very friendly and helpfull. We loved the peacefull little town. Only thing we missed was a fan in all bedrooms.
What a find! Charming house with 3 bright bedrooms and a large family bathroom upstairs and a lovely open plan sitting room, dinning room and large kitchen downstairs. The whole house is very tastefully furnished with lovely paintings, books etc and a kitchen straight out of Cotswold Life - fabulous and with everything one could possibly expect.
The garden and views are again wonderful and a super very clean pool. Lovely beds for sunbathing, pretty pots full of Geraniums and a large shaded table..
A huge thank you to the delightful Pierre who is quite charming, helpful and great fun (how is he single?!!).
Warwick and I had a wonderful week and very much hope to go back next year.
I have given this place one star for the pool, anymore and it would be misleading to anyone wanting to book here. I booked 10 days here with my wife. We were both exhausted after working so hard this year and this was our annual holiday. The pool was lovely and so are the views. Unfortunately, the house is tired, musty, cluttered and uncomfortable. The best decision we made was to leave after five days and go home. extremely disappointing.
Relaxing place to stay
My first impression when we arrived was that Montval looks even better in person than in the photos. The views from the garden our absolutely stunning especially from the beautiful pool. Very comfortable house. The village is very peaceful, perfect place to relax. Beautiful part of France with so many mediaeval villages to visit. Definitely recommend this place and we would love to visit again.
The Most Peaceful and Beautiful Holiday
Had the best time in this cosy little villa that seemed to have it all. lots of entertainment, cards, board games and beautiful weather and views to occupy the time I and my sons spent here. (12 days). Bezolles is a short drive from most great supermarkets, restaurants and pubs. Great cuisine and breathtaking cathedrals and views. It really doesn't get much better.

Gers, the departement in which Bezolles is located, forms part of the fantastic area of France known as Gascony. Bounded to the west by the Bay of Biscay and to the south by the Pyrenees, the area is dominated by rolling hills, areas of natural forest and lush river valleys.
Dotted over the landscape are bastides (fortified villages), at the heart of which local markets bustle beneath medieval colonnades. The capital of the area is Auch, a former Gallo-Roman city which takes pride in its vast and well preserved architectural heritage and is home to a statue of the famous musketeer d'Artagnan who was born in the region.
The area has a rich culinary heritage based on the peasant cuisine of duck and goose fat and has influenced some of the finest chefs in Europe. It is particularly famous for its foie gras, wines (Saint Mont and Madiran), Floc de Gascogne and Armagnac with plenty of local restaurants to choose from, where you can treat yourself to the local dishes at a very reasonable price.
There are festivals and music throughout the summer with Country Western in Mirande, Jazz in Marciac, Classical music all around. The Pyrenees are only a few miles away - great for skiing in the winter, superb randonnées in summmer. If you fancy a little flamenco or tapas, Spain is just 2hours away.
For Family entertainment, you are spolit for choice from caneoing, watersports, horse-riding, tree-top climbing, inland lake with beach. Our local Domaine Les Acacias just around the corner from Montval and offer tastings of their superb range of wine and armaganac and local jams and mustard.
