Welcome to Au Marron, an ancient charming French farmhouse set in its own grounds amid the lush green rolling hills of the Gers .
Your pretty holiday apartment is situated on the first floor just above the ancient wine cellar and has a separate entrance. It has a comfortable and generous sized bedroom with en-suite shower-room and a cosy kitchen/lounge. Outside you will find beautiful gardens, a duck pond with real ducks, several sitting areas and a great outdoor swimming pool (13mx7m). The pool area has sun lounges, a ping pong table and a charcoal bbq grill with a dining table and chairs. At night this is a very romantic setting.
Au Marron is a rural property, far away from the stress and the hustle and bustle of city life. It seems to be far away from everything, but not too far from all the amenities you might need during your stay. And close by are some really fabulous restaurants!
We live at Au Marron, but we will be as inconspicuous as possible and as helpful as needed.
A car is helpful; the next public transport is at Seissan - we are 3 km from the village.
Please note: the stairs to the apartment in first floor are very steep.
"Au Marron" is situated 20km south of Auch near Seissan and 1,5 hours from Toulouse and the Pyrenees.
This rural idyll is ideal for cycling tours, long or short walks or just to find peace and tranquillity. The surrounding villages offer a very French experience with weekly markets, fêtes, great restaurants and cafes, chateaux and castles, churches and medieval cloisters are just waiting for you to be discovered. There are some great music festivals during the summer all around Au Marron – the country music festival in Mirande (15 min.), the jazz festival in Marciac (35 min.) and Tempo-Latino in Vic-Fezensac (45 min.).
Perfect for short breaks, house hunting, business trips or stops on the way to the Pyrenees e.g. to Lourdes or to Spain.
Find your spot in the garden and enjoy your holidays.

West of Toulouse lies the Gers, known as the heart of Gascony and sometimes as the "Tuscany of France": Unspoilt and authentic, peaceful and relaxed with sunflower fields, gentle rolling hills, vineyards, farms and medieval villages and castles.
The Gers enjoys a very mild and sunny climate all year round with often more than 300 sunny days.
Gascony is a gourmet's paradise, famous for its foie gras (goose or duck liver), delicious melons, weekly markets that offer a wide variety of fresh produce and excellent wines and armagnac.
The perfect destination for your stress free holiday.
