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 stone farmhouse. The feel is homely and elegant with some grand family château pieces, friendly dogs and cats, a horse and pony in the fields. Roomy 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. Breakfasts are delicious – try the peach jam and house honey, and dine on wild boar or local duck for supper.
