With 9 bedrooms we can host up to 21 adults.
The host is the former owner of a successful dive centre on Tenerife (2000-2012) who did work with all British tour operators and got an excellent 2 pages report in the Sunday Times, in June 2010.
The place is perfect for nature lovers, you can enjoy some snorkelling in our pound, play tennis for free in Saint-Mézard, eat our fruits, berries & eggs.
With 9 bedrooms on 2 separate buildings, this offer is suitable for stays of large groups up to 21 adults. In the middle of nature, on the hills upon the Gers river valley, these 18th century stone houses got renovated with all modern comfort in 2016.
Very comfortable new beds in all bedrooms. Young kids under 5 years should sleep in special children's beds; we can provide 2 of these beds and this point should be discussed prior to the booking.
Pets owners should also discuss this point prior to the booking.
The Southern building which can host up to 7 adults, is usually proposed as a self-catering accommodation with a beautiful view on the Gers river valley & surrounding hills, the pounds and their domestic & wild life. This cottage includes 3 bedrooms (7, 8 & 9), 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 kitchen, 1 cellar, and a sheltered place facing the view outside; the stairs towards the first floor cannot be used from guests with low mobility, who should use the ground floor bedroom.
On the other side, the main cottage can host up to 14 adults, and is better adapted to a B&B-like rental: the host lives there as well in an office/bedroom near the veranda close to the main entry; guests can be left on their own if they wish after 24 hours at least, which is usually the necessary time to be able to handle all expensive furniture properly. This point should be discussed prior to the booking in order to ensure a good mutual respect.
Sauna & whirlpool are available for our winter guests. Our whirlpool can be used for young children as well during summers.
There is not, strictly speaking, a gym but an indoor-bike, an elliptic, and a traction bar are available.
The southern cottage is independent with its own entry, approx. 30 m away from the other building. The northern cottage has a main entry through the veranda, which host 4 nice dogs and a cat as well. Another door opposite side can be used if the weather is OK. Slippers or indoors shoes should be used on parquet floors and stairs.
Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult to go beyond the garden gates - 58 ha of woods, orchards, pasture, various crops and water points. A roof terrace can be reached from the veranda, which gives a good view on the medieval villages and castles around the place and allows our guests to contemplate the stars in summer with our telescopes. Most of the guests arrive by car from the village of Astaffort (Lot-et-Garonne), 15 minutes from Agen exit on the motorway: at Astaffort southern exit, just after the police station (Gendarmerie) on the right, take the small road on 5,5 km until you cross the Gers, in the small hamlet of Lourtiguet (5 houses), turn left and then right again towards Saint-Mézard, another 250 m and your goal is reached, the only stone houses on your left side.
We will be glad to help you during your whole holiday, organize a visit of the whole estate, introduce you to the Icelandic horses, show you where to pick fruits, eggs & berries, share some board games & outdoors games. We prefer to communicate with our guests however we understand that some guests prefer to be on their own. We only need a good communication on that point prior to your arrival and during your stay.
It is important to read & understand our additional rules prior to the booking. Camping places and sheltered hammocks are available, Golf field 20 is minutes away, Walibi Water Park 25 minutes away, free tennis / basketball place 5 minutes away, Olympic swimming pool 25 minutes away. Our accommodations are declared & legal and subject to a 10% VAT rate.
You will enjoy the place if you love nature and quiet places. For basic shopping and all main services, Astaffort is 6.5 km away.
You can use our 5 bicycles.
We do not offer a real swimming pool but a natural pool with all its natural life, fish, frogs & newts.

Très disponible à toute heure pour ma clientèle, j'ai travaillé pendant 12 années dans le secteur du tourisme à Tenerife où j'étais référencé par la quasi-totalité des Tours Opérateurs européens pour mon service client. Le logement & abords que je propose sont le fruit de 5 ans de travail, et il s'agit pour partie de mon logement, même s'il m'est possible de me mettre en retrait quand la clientèle occupe la place. Je ne suis pas hôtelier et je suis donc libre de refuser l'accès de cette grande maison à ceux qui ne me sembleraient pas assez respectueux des lieux et des nombreux animaux.
