The
Experience

These two gîtes are in the former stone and stucco stables complete with big arched doors. Your charming hosts live next door in the 17th-century castle and you’re surrounded by parkland with stunning valley views and the Pyrenees in the distance.

Huge living areas have ancient stone fireplaces, and you’ll love cooking while you chat in your well set up kitchen – or use the barbecue on the terrace and dine outside. Children have fields to roam, woods to play hide and seek in, a playground and table tennis.

Head off on country walks from the doorstep; jump in the car for ten minutes to reach Mirande when you need to stock up. You’re half-an-hour from Auch, the capital of Gers, as well as vineyards and Armagnac producers. Return to splash in the pool and get stuck into a good book in the sun.

Reviews

Exceptional hosts, tastefully restored grand outhouses (The Orangery and The Stables), adjacent to a charming period chateau all set amongst peaceful undulating hills, and a stone's throw away from the birthplace of The Three Musketeers (Auch). Beaulieu's resident dog, Dune, as welcoming as the hosts too. Certainly a place to come back to.

Edmund

We absolutely loved the Gites the Beaulieu! The most lovely French rural landscape combined with this very special place next to the Chateau, a lovely hostess and a spacious pool five steps away made for extremely edulging and relaxing holidays. Our Gite (the Orangerie) is stylishly and beautifully furnished by star designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac with a huge open fire place and well-equipped open plan kitchen and access to the landscaped gardens from each downstairs room. The upstairs is also well designed and can be used by two separate parties e.g. of an extended family.

Location

The neighbourhood

The houses are reached up a long driveway off the main road. The nearest town, Mirande, has a Monday market heaving with local produce, as well as restaurants, shops and bakery. There’s a working farm to visit with animals to pet three km away, a tennis court (two km), and you’re one hour from walking in the Pyrenees. Bassoues is a beautiful medieval village with shops, restaurants and wonderful architecture (20 km); Lupiac, the town famous for being the home to the legendary d’Artagnan, is 30 km, while Larressingle, fortified village with Cognac shops, is 30 minutes away.

Introducing

Maylis De Castelbajac

The Castelbajac family has owned this property for decades, and the delightful Madame and her husband restored the old stables into holiday homes as a labour of love. Sadly, Monsieur died far too young, and Madame continues the work of running the gîtes. Their bubbly daughter Anne-France married a Scot, and after a few years of living in the UK returned with her family to help her mother run the family business.
