Le Gardian home swap

A maison de maƮtre, formerly a rather up-market farmhouse, set in 4 hectares of its own and surrounded by farmland and woods, some 5 kilometres from the small village of Barran. The main house, dating from 1874, has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a big kitchen, dining room, sitting room with a huge log fire, and a library. It is centrally heated by a modern gas-fired boiler. In the 1970s a one-bedroomed appartment was built on which inter-connects with the main house.

About the location

Le Gers is rural and idyllic! It is amazingly peaceful even in July and August. You can often drive for half an hour without seeing another car. Auch, the capital, is fifteen minutes drive away as are two smaller market towns, Mirande and Vic Fezensac. The staple food is duck and the foie gras is superb and not cruel if you buy from artisanal producers, The local wines are excellent and the area produces Armagnac, much older and streets better than Cognac. Toulouse is one hour away and the Pyrenees, Atlantic coast and Bordeaux around two.
