Au Prada is a wonderfull house on a great location.
The region (Gers) is very quiet and the house is excellent for 2-3 families.
And it has terrasses al around the house, so you can enjoy the sun the whole day
great swimming pool too

My son and I grabbed a late deal at Prada in early July and we had a ball. To some extent we massively under-utilised the place since there were only the two of us and several families could easily have fitted into the property without any trouble. But for a break from the stresses and strains of London office/school life it was perfect. The pool and the table tennis table kept us occupied for large chunks of the week but there was ample space for individual down time.The setting is lovely with gently undulating countryside and sunflower fields galore. The farmhouse is on set on its own, a good 500m from the nearest property, but the nearby little town of Castera Verduzan provided our daily bread (and pains aux chocolat) and we ventured to Condom for a couple of meals out. The Pizzeria L'Origan gets the thumbs up from both of us. In short, a brilliant, chilled week which we'd recommend.
