Description from owner

Description

Leave the apartment by its secure private gate and you are at once in the typically Gascon town of Condom - rich in history, ancient buildings, museums and Roman artefacts. It is dominated by the magnificent cathedral of Saint-Pierre and bisected by the River Baîse, still with the quays once used to load barges with Armagnac brandy en route to Bordeaux. Restaurants and cafes abound to suit all tastes and pockets. Good shops and a twice-weekly market are very close by for all self-catering needs.

Just outside the town lies the beautiful countryside of The Gers - the very heart of Gascony. No suburbs, no industry, just gently rolling, well farmed fields and woodland interspersed with Bastide villages, fortified towns, ancient religious buildings, Chateaux and Gallo-Roman sites. They are all there to be savoured and enjoyed by those with an interest in history and a love and appreciation of countryside, culture, architecture, good eating and, above all, a joie de vivre!

Further details indoors

This apartment has been converted from the servants and grooms living areas above the original stabling and covered carriage areas and separated from the main house by a cobbled passageway. Access was by a stone staircase but has been replaced by one with its doorway opening onto the communal courtyard of the La Petite Gensac complex. The fully equipped kitchenette leads off to a comfortable 25 square meter sitting and eating area. The bedroom has two single beds and plenty  of cupboard and hanging space. An en suite bathroom completes the well-appointed apartment.

Further details outdoors

The Grenier apartment is accessed from the patio which is itself accessed via a gate opening onto La Petite Rue L'Hotel de Ville. Unloading is allowed there but parking is in the public parking area 200 metres away. The patio is a private communal area for the apartments.

Our private 6m x 12m pool and the pool area is available to guests between 10.00am (1000hrs) and 6pm (1800hrs). Although the pool is accessed through the garden , the gardens are not available to guests .

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Condom

The town name 'Condom' is derived from 'Condatomagus', meaning 'old gallic market'. Condom lies on the river BaIse along one of the main pilgrimage routes of Saint Jacques de Compostelle. Because of its location on the riverbanks of the Baise, in the 19th century Condom became the capitol of the Ténarèze region and the access gate to the Armagnac. The river Baise is nowadays still very well suited for all kinds of boating trips. At the Capitainerie in the small harbour you can even rent a boat yourself. Canoeing excursions can be booked a little bit further upstream in Beaucaire.

There are many delightful places to visit in and around Condom: the Armagnac museum as well as the Cathedral St. Pierre are almost mandatory (and only a short walk from La Petite Gensac Apartments). A stroll through the outdoor weekly market (on wednesdays) is also a great delight for all senses. For those who prefer more physical pursuits, tennis, horse-riding, swimming, fishing and golf are all available nearby. There are also some wonderful walks along the Pilgrim Route to Compstela, and you might meet some interesting pilgrims along the way, as this route is still widely used for this purpose.

Book a boat trip on the river and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings along the river. Believed by many to be one of France's loveliest regions, the Gers is even more delightful when viewed in this manner. You can gaze out onto fields of golden sunflowers, vineyards, woodland and pastureland, and sip your Armagnac as you go. 

The town of Condom also hosts an international music festival every year, and this proves very popular with the local people and visitors alike. Chess fans will be delighted to know that Condom is the venue for not just an international festival of the game, but also hosts a chess marathon!
