We live next door to our Gites, we have two dogs,who are extremely friendy and we welcome guests with pets
|Year property purchased||2015|
|Why this location?||We have both spent many years holidaying in France, Mediterranean, Dordogne, Normandy, Brittany, all of which now have become so popular with tourists and costs are higher. We had never been to Gascony Region.
We were so delighted when we found this area. It is stunningly unspoiled and the countryside is magnificent. We have a beautiful forest to the north of our Village, and to the south, west and east vineyards, and chateaux. Amazing rivers and historic villages and towns. Condom and Nerac in particular, 20 mins from us.
We are two and a half hours from the Pyrenees, so ideal in the winter for skiing, or walking the dogs in the summer. The Atlantic coast is two hours and Bordeaux the centre of this wonderful wine region is only one and a half hours drive his area of France is often described as the French Tuscany.
|Unique benefits of property||We think the best thing about our gites is that we are in the edge of the Historic village of Sos, 2 mins walk to centre. The village has a mini supermarket, pharmacy, restaurant, bistro, Post Office, tabac, hairdressers, a bar and doctors. So you don't need to go anywhere as you can walk to alll amenities. We are in a very quiet cul de sac on edge of village. Our Pool was completed last year, which we are delighted with. it is for the use of both gites, so a maximum of two families. We have a huge garden, fully enclosed, so ideal if you want to bring your dogs.
Each Gite has its own private terrace, and there is a large terrace next to the pool with tables and chairs, and sunloungers.
Gunton and I are always around to help with anything our guests need, but we also have our own private terrace, so everyone has their own privacy.
Our gites are very high standard and very well equipped for a perfectly relaxing holiday.
We have a huge list of other wonderful restaurants, markets and other interesting visits, which we provide in our welcome pack, we are happy to talk to guests before they arrive regarding the region.
We had a lovely week in No 6. The hosts were extremely helpful without being intrusive. We loved the quietness whilst also having access to the facilities of the village in a 5 minute walk. The pool was splendid with stunning views. Gascony is an undiscovered gem in France with great wine and Armagnac! We hope to return and would happily recommend to friends.
