The Midi-Pyrénées region

L'Isle-en-Dodon: is about 13km away and is a bastide town which, like Boulogne sur Gesse has yet to succumb to all the pressures of modern life.

Samatan: market is an absolute must see and is a 20 min drive. Every Monday morning the town fills with market stalls selling everything you can think of (and a lot more besides). It is the best market for miles around and is particularly noted for its foie gras (a local speciality).

Lombez: is just before Samatan and has a Cathedral and Leisure Centre Water Park with water chutes, pedoloes, canoes, beach and parkland.

Aurignac: is a lovely village with a roman castle ruin with 360 degree views, Museum and is a 15 minute picturesque drive.

The Gorges de la Save: for walks, picnics and rock climbing is a 15 minute drive away – or you could cycle.

The Grotte de gargas: prehistoric caves with fantastic hand paintings (45 minutes drive).

Marciac: is also 40 minutes away and is famous for its Jazz Festival in August.

Toulouse: is about 1 hour drive and is a city well worth a visit with its 15th century cobbled streets, shops and cafes, museums, art galleries, botanical garden, cruises on the Canal due Midi.

St Betrand du comminges: is a 50 minute drive, stop off on your way to the Pyrenees or Spain and visit the picturesque medieval village with magnificent cathedral perched high above a valley in the foothills of the Pyrenees.

The Pyrenees: are just over an hours drive and well worth a visit at any time of year. Take in the breathtaking views and in the winter why not have a go at skiing or snow boarding at Superbagneres – an experience we can thoroughly recommend. Stop at Luchon and take a cable car ride up to the slopes.

Spain: is only just over an hour away – take a drive through beautiful scenery over the border and enjoy all that Spain has to offer in the way of great views, good value shopping, wine and spirits.

If you fancy a trip to the coast it is about 2 hours 40 minutes to either the Atlantic or Mediterranean coast.

Boulogne sur Gesse

Eating out: there are plenty of places around to eat to suit all tastes (this is France after all). The closest of which is the Auberge Champetre and a very short drive or a good stretch of the legs. Specialises in charcoal grilled meats, they also have a number of theme nights and entertainment during the summer months.

Boulogne sur Gesse: is our closest town about 5km away, and is a typical example of a French country town with its arched market square in the centre of town where a small market is held on Wednesday mornings. It has 2 supermarkets, 2 pharmacies, 3 boulongeries/pattiseries where you can choose from a vast array of breads and cakes, Post Office, Banks, hairdressers, cafes and bar, tabac, newsagents etc. There is also a large leisure lake with leisure facilities. Various activities and events are organised during the summer and in particular there is a firework display with synchronised music in August.

"Beautiful location, lovely owners"

Pete and Wendy made our stay at La Porcherie very friendly and relaxed. Good value for money and in a great location for our house hunt that covered the Haute Garonne and Hautes Pyrenees. They did everything to make sure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible whilst maintaining a very private environment. We are pleased to have made some new friends and enjoyed celebrating our new purchase!! We had a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend this gite to anyone wanting a holiday or a house hunting base. Thanks Wendy, Pete and Bella
