Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

In a tranquil setting, on the edge of the small village of Lascazeres, 'La Balentines' lies in the heart of the historic region of Gascony. At the crossroads of the Haute Pyrenees and Les Gers: France's secret garden, with its gently rolling landscape and fields overflowing with sunflowers, maize and vineyards.

Gascony's appeal is the generous amount of sunshine, warm summers with long evenings and sublime weather stretching well into November.

It is truly a gourmet's paradise, deservedly famous for its foie gras, confits and magrets. Fresh produce from the local farms are freely available at the weekly markets in Plaisance du Gers, Vic en Bigorre and Maubourguet.

For those who enjoy the noble grape, nearby are the famous vineyards of Madiran, Saint Mont and Jurançon
with Armagnac about an hours drive north. . All around the area, wine producers offer 'degustations' - wine tastings.

Whether its exploring the local bastide towns with their weekly markets or visiting beachside towns such as Biarritz, the location of Maison Balenti leaves you spoilt for choice.

- Golf (The oldest Golf course in Europe being in Pau), Horse Riding, Cycling and Tennis.
- Brocante (antique shops) and flea markets.
- Surfing on the Atlantic Coast notably Biarritz & Hossegor.
- White water rafting and canoe trips in the Pyrenees.
- Waterskiing and Wakeboarding on Lake Cahuzac 15 mins away.
- Day Trips taking in: Atlantic Coast (Biarritz, San Sebastian), the stunning medieval brick city of Toulouse, Bordeaux, Thermal villages in the Pyrenees and the spiritual Lourdes.
- The spectacular mountains of the Pyrenees can be seen from the house and are only an hours drive away.
Whether you visit for skiing only 1.5 hours away to resorts such as La Mongie, Bareges, St Lary to name a few, or sightseeing everything is within easy reach.

Lascazeres

The busy market town of Maubourguet is only 6 km away with its banks, post office and pharmacies as well as a huge brand new supermarket as well as the usual shops. There are four café restaurants serving excellent and inexpensive food.

There's a terrific local restaurant at Aydie (5km) where the Cepes Omelettes are legendary (One of our personal favourites)

Madiran: Aug 14/15, Wine festival: where many local vineyards congregrate offering free degustations,entertainment .
