The Midi-Pyrenees region
The picturesque village of Pouy Roquelaure is set on an elevated position halfway between Condom and Agen. Its unique location and predominately stone built houses make Pouy Roquelaure particularly attractive, being frequented by visitors who can walk around the 16c chateau walls taking in the breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a stone church dating from the same period which is still used for occasional services.
For the more energetic the pilgrim route of St James of Compostella passes through the village on its way to La Romieu, a major stopping point on one of the many pilgrim routes in the area.
Here is a selection of activities you may wish to do during your stay at Le Clozet Gites and Chambres D'Hotes– click on an item to read more.
Walking – Great area for walking with marked paths criss-crossing the region. Le Clozet is on a part of the pilgrim route of St James of Compostella that runs from Agen to Condom and passes at the side of our house. Our section is 8kms long and goes to Condom via La Romieu.
Water activities – within 30 minutes are numerous man-made lakes (plan d’eau), many with sandy beaches. The nearest is at Castera Verduzan. Condom has a new outdoor swimming pool complex and at Nerac you can enjoy playing in the water in a mock Roman setting. Fishing is permitted in many of the irrigation lakes and rivers – lists of fishable sites and permits can be bought from any of the region’s tourist office.
Walibi Water Fun Park – near to Agen. This is a great family day out. Full of rides and activities for all ages, even scary ones, there are numerous bars and restaurants on-site. Not cheap but families benefit from a good group reduction.
Cycling – a number of cycles available for guests at Le Clozet. For more serious cyclists bring your own as the region is quiet with little traffic. Safe for families with little children. Good off-road routes as well for mountain bikes. In high season bikes can be hired at Lectoure. Labastide d'Armagnac, 45 kms away, is well worth a visit. It has a small chapel, Notre-Dame-des-Cyclistes – which is France's own official sanctuary for racers.
Golf clubs – 4 courses within 15 - 45 mins, nearest being the well rated Golf de Fleurance which is built around an 18c Gasconne house. Many natural obstructions such as streams, lakes, trees and valleys, and dotted with numerous bunkers. Classed as a 9+9 with many different re-start points, it gives the impression of being a real 18 hole course. Classed as the ninth best 9 hole in France. Due to the wonderful Gers climate it is open all year. It also has a good restaurant with special golfers' menus starting at 10 Euro. Other courses are Gold Club de Guinlet near Eauze; the 18-hole Golf d'Auch-Embats which also has a good restaurant. The 9 hole Golf de la Martines near L’Isles Jourdain, The 9+9 Golf de Gascogne near Massaube and the 9+9 Golf du Chateau de Pallane at Tissac.
Horse riding – there are several local centres, including La Plume and La Romieu.
Tennis – nearest courts at Saint Mezard (3kms); Large tennis complex at Condom opposite the new outdoor swimming pool.
Quad-biking – about 35 mins from the house, near Roquelaure, to the north of Auch.
Horse-racing and Trotting – nearest course is at Castera-Verduzan, Another large course is near to Beaumont de Lomagne.
Car and Motorcycle racing – Circuit Paul Armagnac at Nogaro, 50 miles south west, is a modern challenging circuit. Events most of the year. Club days are good where you see amateurs flogging their pride and joy around the track.
Flying – Good flying clubs at all the local airports, Agen and Auch. You can also learn to parachute at Agen. Hang-gliding and para-gliding at St Clar, 30 kms away.
Antiques and Brocante – Every town has at least one brocante. Many fairs throughout the year. In the season you can visit an outdoor “Vide Grenier” a type of boot sale. Have done them myself and they are great fun, there are still bargains to be had.

"Such a lovely place."
Le clozet is a great place to spend a nice and quiet holiday together with your family.
The offered accomodations are very clean; well maintained and everything you require for a nice stay. There's something for everyone; children, teenagers and adults.
The hospitality of the owner's family is remarkable and shows their respect and friendliness towards their guests. They make you feel at home.
The location of this place is ideal to give you the chance to visit various little villages with their touristic sights.
We would surely recommend this place to everyone!

We have been going to Le Clozet regularly over the last 7 years and have seen it develop and grow into the excellent place to stay it is now. The cleanliness and decor of both gites is to an exceptionally high standard. The facilities at Le Clozet are amazing, there is nothing like lying by the pool reading a book and glacing up and off into the distance at the Pyrenees across fields of sunflowers! The warm friendly atmosphere is second to none as the Santos-Davies family are very welcoming friendly people and cannot do enough for all their guests.

"A wonderful stay in rural france."
We very much enjoyed our week at Le Clozet. Pouy Roquelaure is a lovely, quiet hamlet and there are great views of the beautiful surrounding countryside from the garden and pool at Le Clozet.
The area is is great for exploring and the historic towns and villages of Condom, La Romieu and Lectoure are all well worth a visit. It is also a good area for walking, close to the Chemin de St. Jacques. We also picked up a booklet (in French) with details of lots of local walks from the Tourist Office in La Romieu.
So, after an energetic day of walking, it was back to Le Clozet and the pool to relax and chill! Beccy, Pedro, Gareth and Helen were hospitable and helpful. On our final evening we enjoyed a really great dinner (additional charge) - a great end to a wonderful holiday!
