I like english sport cars , architecture ,travels in Asia , rugby vets player , ski , antics and cooking. South West France is a lovely place to live and people are very friendly and good contacts. In summer time in the Gers the time stops and it is very relaxing. Also the local food is of a superb quality for ducks confits ,fois gras cassoulet ("Chez Etienne" at "La BAstide danjou" about 50 kms certainly the best of the World ). It is nearby Toulouse which is a very international city not booming economically with Airbus factory that you can visit (Contact Aeroscopia) also Concorde and historical planes are on display..
Albany purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Albany chose Catonvielle

I ve designed the plans myself to suit my own needs for big volumes and light and ease to cook with my friends. Open space cuisine ..etc and to enjoy the beautiful Gers vallony landscapes and Pyrenees mountains through large windows.
What makes this Villa unique
No direct neightbour views and very quite with unique access to the swimming pool. Very convenient place to discover the South West of France, Toulouse, Albi , Carcassonne, Rodez and Gers Gascony.

We enjoyed a very relaxed week in a beautiful location
If you like to relax and enjoy a calm holiday, then this beautiful house with a great swimming pool and view is the place to be. You need a car to go shopping and make trips, e.g. to Auch or the beautiful villages nearby. Richard, the owner of the location, is very friendly and helpful. Thanks a lot!

"Albany cottage" is on top of a ridge which gives it far reaching views across the surrounding farmland both to the east west and the south. The southerly views extend as far as the Pyrenees, and on clear days without haze nearly the entire chain can be seen. The house is on the edge of the village of "Gimont" in the Gers where the countryside consists of rolling hills, small woods and fields, but also gives fast and easy access to "Toulouse" and Auch "the capital of Gascogny". The picturesque ancient bastide towns of Cologne and Mauvezin and Sarrant (one of nicest village in France) and the charming town of L'Isle Jourdain are both just 10 km away having good shopping centre and open market for local food every saturday morning as well as a wide range of sporting facilities (9 holes golf course, Leisure lake with tracked waterski, swimming pool, plus indoor and outdoor tennis courts.
