It’s deeply peaceful here among vines in rolling Gers countryside – great for walking and cycling. Charming owners Amanda and Colin have breathed new life into the rustic frame of their old wine farm, and the feel is homely with some grand family château pieces, free-range dogs and cats, horses in the fields. Bedrooms have rugs on wooden floors, smart wallpapers and super-comfy big beds: one four-poster, one with wrought iron bedstead. Light bathrooms are impressive. They’ve also created a pretty courtyard and garden, shaded by ancient oaks. Most of the food is home-grown and breakfasts are delicious – try the fig, plum and peach jam.
