The region is one of the most beautiful places in France,
the land of d’Artagnan and ‘The Three Musketeers’.
Even though we are tucked away in a rural location we are very close to local villages market towns and cities, Agen being only 59 km.
Saint PE Saint Simon has a small shop and restaurant, our closest towns Gabarret and Eauze have supermarkets, banks and great restaurants. Within a two minute drive or short bike ride from the house is an outdoor public pool plus park.
Each market town has a traditional French market selling local fresh produce every morning, Eauze being one of the best markets on a Thursday.
Coast / Beach
The coast between Bordeaux and Biarritz, with its many surfing beaches, is about 2 hours drive away.
Gondrin and many nearby towns have their own swimming lakes with water slides, beach, snack bar and woodlands.
The Gers boasts an astonishing 146 chateaux, one of the largest and most imposing of which is that of Lavardens, built on a limestone outcrop. One third of modern-day Gersois villages are original medieval bastides.
These fortified villages have grid-patterned streets and central arcaded market places and were established at many strategic points all over south-west France in the Middle Ages.
In Gers, some of these new villages took the names of prestigious cities, hence Montréal-du-Gers, Fleurance, Cologne and Barcelonne-du-Gers.
