PR381 Vascones

nr Tarbes, Gers, South West France | Sleeps 10

Vascones is an utterly charming and authentic Gascony farmhouse for self catering rental. This 18th century hilltop farmhouse is situated in 10 acres of flower beds, lawns, orchard, fields and woodland in the deep south-west of France and enjoys panoramic views of the Pyrenees, hills and forests. This Gascony farmhouse blends rustic charm with sophisticated taste.

Each room is large and comfortable, stylishly furnished and beautifully maintained. Accommodation is provided in the main farmhouse and converted barn. The elegant conservatory is perfect for dining whilst admiring the wonderful view and can be used in both summer and winter.  This is a lovely comfortable house, full of character, in a particularly beautiful part of the Gers.

Gascony offers rolling hills, forests, rivers, lakes, bastide villages and small market towns, all set against the permanently snow-capped Pyrenees mountains. There is very little traffic in this predominantly rural area. The night skies are breathtaking, with no light pollution to compete with the stars! However, if you are looking for a change of pace, Pau is a large, vibrant and cultural town with lots to see and do. This Gascony farmhouse for self catering rental can also be provided with the services of an experienced cook, on request.

This really is a lovely house with such a welcoming atmosphere.  Many personal touches here and there but all with comfort and ambience in mind.  The Gers is a beautiful region with fabulous scenery, not forgetting wonderful regional food such as Magret, Confit and good local wine.  Marciac Country & Western Festival in summer is an absolute "must" to visit where many famous C&W singers or actors and actresses from Dallas regularly appear.  If jazz is your "thing" then the Marciac Jazz Festival is superb.  Held in August the atmosphere is amazing, as is the music!
