The
Experience

Artily stylish and peaceful. Armagnac was made on this Gascon estate; a vineyard borders the long driveway still and Camilla and Antony, who live in the main house, organise excellent tours and tastings. They’ve also organised things beautifully in their dovecote cottage which feels nicely private – and guests can share the pool, boules pitch and games/party barn. Its south-facing terrace looks out over fields, where deer graze, to the Pyrenees. When it’s hot the north terrace is the place to chat and eat out (nearby Eauze and Barbotan have both good markets and restaurants). The ground floor is open plan with restored wood and tiled floors, a proper kitchen, dining and seating areas; pale painted woodwork, quirky brocante and art. Dimensions aren’t huge but there’s masses of charm. Up open-tread stairs the beamed twin and double rooms, in pretty, country décor, share a good shower room and fine green views. Take the other gite and the B&B rooms in the house for a great group getaway with very engaging, creative hosts (Antony’s a musician, Camilla a designer). And do visit Seviac’s famously well-preserved Roman mosaics.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Camilla Bates & Antony Holloway

  • We are surrounded by Armagnac producers and vineyards. Eauze, the capital of the Bas Armagnac is 7kms away. It has an outstanding weekly market every Thursday brimming with delicious local fare and a selection of restaurants and bars .
  • There are beautiful medieval villages, notably the stunning Labastide d'armagnac, Fources , which has a spring plant market and the tiny fortified village of Larresingle. Vic Fezensac has a Tempo Latino festival, Marciac a world famous jazz festival.
  • Finely preserved Roman mosaics at Seviac and Montreal du Gers testify the former importance of the region in Roman Times. There is also an excellent museum in Eauze displaying an outstanding treasure haul of Roman coins and jewellry.
  • The Simonov Collection at L'abbaye de Flaran is a gem of culture and beauty including paintings by Braques, Cezanne and Monet. The Gothic cloister is perfectly preserved. You can climb the tower of the church in nearby Valence sur Baise and see for miles.
  • From Notre Dame des Cyclistes, a chapel restored by an enthusiastic cycling priest with an impressive display of historic cycling jerseys you can walk to Labastide d'armagnac for a meal or 'degustation' of floc, armagnac, local wines and fois gras.
  • Golf de Guinlet, an 18 hole course 5 mins drive. At lac de l'uby you can take a pedalo or paddle board for a waterborne adventure. There are many local walks, mapped and signed and from the garden you can often see deer, wild boar, buzzards and hoopoes.
