The Experience

This grand 17th-century stone house has a large garden with a swimming pool that’s overlooked by the local church – when the stained-glass windows are lit at night it’s very beautiful.

The house is perfect for one or two families, with rooms in the main house or garden annexe. Watch TV or read in the cosy sitting room, rustle up dinners in the modern galley kitchen and eat together around a long table in the dining room. The garden has lots of hidden corners, plus a shaded gazebo and a summer kitchen for barbecues.

This is a quiet part of France, with simple pleasures: stroll to the small village shop, bakery, restaurant and pizzeria in minutes, take a guided tour of the ancient cellars of Le Château de Monluc, which produces both wine and Armagnac. Toulouse and Bordeaux are around two hours’ drive away.

Reviews

The location for a big village house is great with such a big garden and stunning church backdrop. To walk to a boulangerie and restaurant is very rare. The house oozes history and charm.

Location

The neighbourhood

Gers is a region rich in food culture and famous for fortified villages and towns. St Puy is a small, charming hilltop village with panoramic views that can trace its history to the Roman Empire. A small village shop, bakery, restaurant and pizzeria are a stroll from the house. There’s a tango festival in June and street market on May Day; wine tasting too at Le Château de Monluc - or visit Renaissance Château de Cassaigne, about a 20-minute drive. Flaran Abbey (10 minutes) houses a magnificent collection of art. Condom (11km), where Armagnac is produced, has a weekly Wednesday market.

Local points of interest from Mireille Mabilat & Stuart Simkins

  • Start your journey into the region with tips and advices provided by Mireille at La Lumiane. She speaks most of the European languages and has a knowledge of Europe based on her own travels.
  • Set on the top of a hillock, looking over the small village of Saint-Puy, across a very rural French landscape, is the small Château of Monluc. It is, like many in the region, a producer of good wine.
  • The Gers is the home of the duck, its pâté de foie gras and of a variety of wines and Armagnac to accompany French gastronomy.
  • From spring into autumn the region supports many festivals such as the internationally renowned Jazz Festival of Marciac and other regional festivals. In Saint-Puy, enjoy the festival of Tango and an English May day organized by its English community.
  • The village, during the season, has a small restaurant Chez vous which is also a one star restaurant at the Guide Michelin. His French owner also speaks English. Or pop to the delicious pizzeria, held by the mayor himself!
  • La Lumiane, a 18 century stone house, is full of character but modernized to provide up to date comforts. The garden is a perfect place to relax and the swimming pool offers an opportunity to refresh and enjoy a relaxing interlude in your day.

Introducing

Mireille Mabilat & Stuart Simkins

Mireille lived in Belgium for a long time, and Stuart is an excellent cabinet maker who renovated the kitchen. The house is a B&B most of the year, but when they let it as self-catering they stay in another property nearby. They have two dogs.
