SLEEPING:

The house has large rooms all with original beams and shuttered windows and amply fits 10 people. We do have two extra mattresses if your group size is just that little larger. With three bath/shower rooms all with toilets and 4 huge bedrooms there is space for everyone!

Downstairs, there are two bedrooms: a twin bedded room with its own french windows onto the garden and suitable for anyone with limited mobility ( No stairs ). And lastly, a huge dormitory style bed room with 4 single beds also with direct access to the garden. The downstairs rooms share a wet shower room, ideal for showering mucky children, or overheated adults.

Upstairs, there is the master double bedroom ( fantastic beamed ceiling) with en suite family shower/dressing room, and along the corridor another double bedroom ( can sleep 2 more on mattresses ) with a bathroom next door.

We can arrange the sleeping arrangements with you according to the needs of your party. A baby cot is available.

COOKING & EATING:

The people in this part of France, like so many, take their food and wine very seriously- as we do! The fully equipped family kitchen has a wonderful wood burning stove in it, dining table for up to 12 and french doors to the garden. It comes complete with modern gas hob, electric fan oven, integrated dishwasher and huge fridge. It is well equipped with big pots, pans and dishes, mixer to cater for the masses. In the separate utility room there is a washing machine, sink, drying maid, ironing board etc. and the central heating system. A high chair is also available.

RELAXING:

Next to the kitchen is the main lounge with a large open fireplace, doors to the garden and of course, two big squishy sofas to stretch out on. For home entertainment there is a CD, MP3 and iPod/phone music systems, and a collection of board games and books.

We recently created a second lounge upstairs with flat screenTV on the very large mezzanine- a place to escape to, to read a book quietly, or listen to some different music - somewhere for teenagers , or others to gather, to lounge on big sofas, listen to music, watch a film, play cards.....There is also a big table for the family game of Monopoly, lego building, or puzzle making.

Further details outdoors

LIFE OUTSIDE:

The house is set in its own one acre garden with a pool surrounded by olive trees, an orchard and large grassed areas that are perfect for ball and other games. Hammocks are dotted about so everyone can all find a spot for the afternoon siesta....

The pool is fully managed and you need do nothing other than take a dip. It is a 11 x 5 m pool with full width entrance steps, pool alarm and outdoor shower. If you're feeling particularly active you could skim a few leaves, or perhaps rescue the odd piece of wildlife that falls into the pool.

The house comes with other playthings too. These include a full-size table tennis table, a 5m trampoline, a swing off the big oak tree, six bicycles to suit ages from 6 years up, a badminton set, cricket set, swingball, plus the mandatory boules and of course BBQ equipment!

The Midi-Pyrenees region

The house is in the middle of French countryside along a small road used by occasional cars but mostly by tractors, ploughs etc. going to the fields.

The nearest shops for all your requirements are in the local village of St. Clar 2 kms away. Here you have several bakeries with fresh bread, croissants and cakes daily, a couple of pharmacies and a medium sized supermarket ( eco-marche ) stocking everything you might want. For those of you who particularly like the big French Hypermarche they can be found in Auch/Agen about 40 minutes away. There are a couple of Doctors in the village too should the need arise.

The local markets have a wonderful supply of fresh local seasonal produce including fish,meat and wine. Just to give you an idea-In summer you can buy trays of Peaches,Nectarines, Melons, lots of varieties of Tomatoes, Strawberries, Cherries, Greengauges, Plums, Berries..... Organic produce can increasingly be found as well as produce from Spain and surrounding countries.

This is a part of France that is slow and tranquil. Choose between days at the poolside listening to the crickets, relaxing in the hammocks, admiring the sunflower fields or for the more active explore the local picturesque bastide villages, the bustling markets with fresh local produce, visit castles or take part in the many sporting activities on offer.

The house is an hour west of Toulouse International airport and Toulouse Motorail. The railway station at Agen is served by the TGV and is only 45 minutes away. It’s about a nine hour drive from Calais. The nearest village for the morning croissants is 4 minutes in the car or a 45 minute round trip on the bicycles.

Les Guillamaux is available for rent all year round and is perfectly suited to two families wishing to holiday together or perhaps a family taking the grandparents with them although a group of fewer people will just be able to enjoy even more space! We have furnished the house giving importance to comfort and aesthetic and conducive to relaxation and fun - successful holidays are when everyone is happy!

Fleurance

The area around Les Guillamaux is dotted with villages and towns with an array of good food and wine, markets, restaurants and historical sites. Nearby is the Chateau of Gramont and the fortified village of Larressingle. Further afield are the castles in Bruniquel or the magnificent walled city of Carcassonne, the monasteries of Moissac, the stargazing dome in Fleaurance, and all the delights of Toulouse ( Modern Art, Space Museum, Museum of the Resistance etc.... ) and Bordeaux.

For ‘le type sportif’ there are local tennis courts, swimming lakes with water slides, tree top walking, Golf, horse riding and many beautiful walks and cycle rides. Slightly further afield there is canoeing, sailing, go -karting and rock climbing or 'Walibi' adventure/theme park.The Pyrennean mountains are only 2 1/2 hours away whilst the Atlantic coast is about the same distance.

This is the heartland of Gascon gastronomy. The region is famous for duck, foie gras, prunes and of course Armagnac. There are abundant local farmers’ markets and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets.The

local farmers’ markets are a pleasure for all senses particularly in the peak summer months when they are at their best and most varied. If you are a market type then this is the place to buy your fresh fruit and veg ( tomatoes, melons, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, garlic galore) fresh fish and meat, sample some cheeses maybe do a little wine tasting yet still find time for people watching. There are local markets on 4 days each week.

We can give you plenty of ideas for day trips if you need them.

SPECIAL EVENTS

The International Jazz festival in Marciac ( 100 mins by car ) is held in the first two weeks of August every year. Equally famous is the Astronomy festival held in Fleurance every year with International speakers, debates and a local observatory for star and planet gazing. Alongside these more prestigious events, local villages put on evening feasts and dances throughout the summer with long tables surrounding the village squares, local produce being cooked and sold and everyone of all ages joining in the music and merriment until the early hours of the morning. A must !!

"A beautiful home, garden and location. We couldn't ask for more."

We have had the luxury of spending time at Les Guillamaux in 2003/4. The house, garden and pool were wonderful then - they are even better now. There are more beds to accommodate more guests. The upstairs loft area is now a lovely media and game room with a large screen TV and comfy couches. The ping pong table was new for us and resulted in lots of fun competitive games. The garden has matured and is full of beautiful colours and herbs. Every window of the house gives the viewer an outstanding view of the countryside. We went on lots of lovely walks, runs and bike rides in the surrounding area and villages. We also went to severak open air markets and took advantage of the new local Intermache which was very convenient. We all took advantage of the peaceful setting to relax, read lots of books, enjoy local sparking wines, lovely cheese and lots of gorgeous bread. We highly recommend Les Guillamaux and look forward to our next visit.

"Fabulous Group Holiday house"

The house is just gorgeous. It has been restored very authentically ....rustic and comfortable. Great spaces. Everything provided, though internet connection was difficult. Countryside beautiful. Pool and grounds great. Local villages delightful. Walking trails wonderful. A great place for a group of friends, or a couple of families.

"A beautiful home in a lovely, relaxing location with views to die for!"

From the minute we drove up to Les Guillamaux we knew we were going to have a great holiday. The house itself is beautiful and very well equipped, the owners really have thought of everything. The children really enjoyed the pool and gardens and the views are absolutely stunning! Myi parents loved the area so much they have since bought a house there!
