Description from owner

Description

Chateau de Puissentut is a charming and welcoming medieval manor house in historic Gascony. Set in 5 hectares of own grounds, with no close neighbours, it is perfect getaway. The house looks onto a pretty valley with the Pyrenees mountains in the background. It is a haven for adults and a paradise for children.

The Occitanie region

The Gers offers unspoiled tradition in the heart of rural France. Little known to tourists, the Gers offers tranquility and peace, away from the holiday-making hoards. The Gers has a rich historical past having once formed a part of English-ruled Gascony and being beset by religious wars between Catholics, Protestants and Cathars. The result is fascinating, fortified villages perched on hill and ridge tops.

The most famous local inhabitant, celebrated throughout the region, was d' Artagnan one of the Muketeers made famous by Alexandra Dumas.

The Gers is part of Gascony, which is famed for its cuisine. Foi Gras (goose liver pate) and Armagnac are local delicacies.

The climate in the Gers is very pleasant. Average top temperatures in July and August are mid to high 20's, although temperatures can reach the early 30's.

Mauvezin

Chateau Puissentut is a 5 minute drive from the nearest village which has a good restaurant, baker, grocers and post office. It is also within easy reach of many other attractive villages, several of which have restaurants. Full amenities are available in the nearby historic market towns of Mauvezin, Fleurance and Lectoure. Auch (30 mins) and Condom (35 mins) offer more shopping and eating opportunities. Vibrant Toulouse (1hr) and stylish Agen (50mins) are also worth visiting for a bit of city buzz.

The surrounding countryside offers good walking opportunities, golf and horse riding. The area is also good for amateur and professional cyclists with lots of rolling hills and not too much traffic. There are several 'base de loisirs' which offer alternative swimming options and a 'beach'.

All the nearby villages host 'fetes' where locals and holiday makers mingle to dine, dance and shop in the night markets, and festivals celebrating local produce such as the melon festival in Lectoure. There are also regular Vide Greniers (attic clearances) if you are interested in picking up an antique or a rustic souvenir.

“The most beautiful, peaceful and welcoming place I have stayed in and all done with great taste and style.”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

Angela and Derek have created a very special place to stay in a glorious part of France. The rooms are all very beautifully designed and nothing is too much trouble for the charming hosts. The pool is perfect and situated in a stunning garden overlooking the rolling countryside. All in all it is a perfect place to stay and provides peace and tranquility with attractive market towns, restaurants and places of interest nearby. Being only 40 minutes from Toulouse airport it makes the destination easily accessible and I cannot wait to return!
