Let the pressure of life fade into memory as you gently settle in the heart of Gascony. Situated near Lectoure, the Guest house Preissac is part of an ensemble of beautiful homes, all located within a 12th century stronghold.

Preissac is a beautiful house composed of one master suite, two double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a drawing room with fireplace and stunning valley views, a large fully equipped kitchen & dining room, and a 150 sqm private garden.

The house is decorated with genuine antique furniture and contemporary artwork, hence blending gracefully past and future.

The managers, on site - 1 British & 1 French - will gladly recommend the best restaurants, local attractions including wine tastings ! Wi-Fi and numerous games (croquet, badminton etc) available at village reception.

Within the stronghold

The village has been through a thorough renovation process lasting over 25 years. Only traditional building materials have been employed in accordance with the principles of the Charter of Venice. In 2001 the Castelnau was granted the highly acclaimed International Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Award (RICS), prize handed by HRH, the Prince of Wales. The Castelnau now has 16 houses (of which 12 are dedicated to our guests) with charming individual gardens, a church and a vast 17th century vaulted hall which used to be part of a monumental stable block.

The honeyed limestone walls adorned with vines and nestling fruit trees follow paths to brightly painted doors which open to houses elegantly furnished with Gascon antiques and fabrics, both old and contemporary art and clean-lined modern bathrooms. All kitchens are fully equipped but telephones and televisions are nowhere to be seen. The beauty of the

Castelnau is to provide the perfect setting for each and everyone to enjoy peaceful tranquility far away from noise and pollution.

Set amongst limestone walls, but not enclosed, there is no through road in the village so guests are able to walk the cobbled streets undisturbed. The houses each have their own private gardens with furniture and BBQ equipment.

A private chef is available on site providing an opportunity to discover local delights and even cooking courses

(reservation only, please ask for details).

Beneath the village walls, the outdoor pool is surrounded by wooden decking and although not fenced it has a regulation safety cover. Just outside the entrance to the property there is also a tennis court. Safe parking is available just outside the walls.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

The Gers

This picturesque department is regularly referred to as the “Tuscany of France” because of its gorgeous undulating hills and fairytale citadels. Here you are in the heart of Foie Gras and Armagnac country, with magnificent châteaux to visit, traditional local markets held most days of the week and some of the finest examples of medieval bastides that you will find anywhere in France.

Nearby Lectoure and La Romieu while harbouring UNESCO world heritage sites, also offer availability to most amenities including supermarkets, bakers, butchers, wine shops etc...

Golf courses, riding, cycling, river boating and balloon rides are all available in the local area and so are numerous lakes and leisure centres.
