About the property

Domaine de Peyloubere

The Domaine de Peyloubere is a beautiful 17th century Gascony estate set in 35 acres of woodland, lakes, gardens and tall trees. All the cottages, which sleep from 4 to 8 guests, have been refurbished and re-equipped. Three of them were once the staff homes and have been updated to incorporate modern comforts while maintaining their original period timbered character. 'Les Rosiers' is in the oldest wing of the main house and 'Les Iris' has been created from the old coach house. All have their own access, garden and barbecue and share the heated swimming pool (12 x 6m) and sauna with its secluded garden and sunbathing terrace. The owners and labrador, Nina, are resident and have a separate pool. Peyloubere is only 5 minutes walk from Pavie village, 10 minutes drive from Auch, the capital of Gascony, and 1 hour from Toulouse, Albi, Pau, Lourdes, Spain and the Pyrenees.

Historic building - previously home of artist: The Domaine de Peyloubere is classified as a monument historique by virtue of the fact that it was the home of the Italian painter and sculptor, Mario Cavaglieri for over fifty years. Legacies of his ownership are the frescoed ceilings and walls in many of the rooms of the Manoir, the graceful Italian garden and the relaxed, bohemian atmosphere of the Domaine. Although a haven of tranquillity and a paradise to explore, Peyloubere is located only 6km from Auch, the historic and vibrant capital of Gascony, with its famous cathedral and many restaurants, markets, shops and festivals.

Lots to do and see for all the family: Also available on site - table tennis, badminton and a football lawn which is also ideal for cricket and other team games. There are also lakes and a river for fishing and the woodland and gardens for peaceful walks, bird watching and wild flower collecting. Toulouse, Albi, Lourdes and the Pyrenees are within one hours drive and there are many interesting places to visit close by, including Armagnac chateaux, mediaeval villages, foie gras farms, leisure lakes and major jazz and music festivals in Marciac and Mirande. The village of Pavie is 5 minutes walk away, ideal for breakfast croissants. There is also a riding stable in the village and three others close by.

Bed and Breakfast - Chambres d'hote: Two suites of rooms are available for one night or longer in the listed wing of the Manoir. Previously the accommodation of Mario Cavaglieri and his adored wife, Giulietta, the rooms have been fully restored to exhibit the fascinating frescoes on ceilings and walls. The first of these,'The Cavaglieri Suite' contains most of the frescoes and comprises a large bedroom with venetian four poster, a luxurious bathroom and a sitting room. The second suite is 'The Garden Room' with en-suite bathroom. Prices per night for two people including breakfast are €130 for the Cavaglieri Suite and €90 for the Garden Room, or €140 and €100 respectively if guests wish to stay for a single night. Both suites are available all year round.

Internet access is available free of charge in all cottages and the chambres d'hôte via a Professional WiFi Hotspot.

About Theresa Martin

We moved to France from London in 1999 and our son was educated in Auch and has recently returned from studying and working in China. Our daughter lives and works in London. We are very fortunate to live in this beautiful part of France and love to welcome our guests to Peyloubère and to share with them our knowledge and enthusiasm for the surrounding area and help them to enjoy a memorable holiday in the Gers.

Theresa Martin purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Theresa Martin chose Pavie

We 'discovered' the Gers over twenty years ago and at once loved the combination of a rich history, beautiful rolling countryside, delicious local produce and cuisine, an excellent location from which to explore Europe and, above all, the warm and happy people who welcomed us so generously into their midst.

What makes this cottage unique

You only have to drive under the magnificent cedar trees either side of the entrance gate, up the drive into the circular rosegarden, see the ivy clad Manoir with its basque red shutters and hear the song of birds and the sound of water cascading over the waterfall to know why we were at once bewitched by Peyloubère!

It was a perfect match for out family with four children. We truly enjoyed the marvelous swimming pool and the inviting surroundings. Theresa is a perfect hostess: very helpfull when needed kindly giving advices and assuring our week at Peyloubere was a success. I warmly recommend this place and could imagine to visit again myself, too.

Giulietta

  • 5 of 5

An excellent vacation spot with all the necessities of home and a spa and beautiful outdoor pool to relax in.

The owner, Theresa, was welcoming and accommodated our late arrival to the premises. Relaxation was the order of the day with the exploration of the surrounding country side. French and English spoken.

We had no problems and enjoyed our stay in Giulietta and would recommend it to our friends. Pool towels not supplied.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review; delightful guests like yourselves make it all worthwhile and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Peyloubère. You are correct that pool towels are not included in the linen that is provided but if weight limits on aircraft make them a problem, we are happy to provide towels for a token contribution to the 'pool towel fund' which helps me to keep a small stock available for guests. Hope to see you again in the future.

Peyloubére - Giulietta

  • 5 of 5

Had a very pleasant two weeks here; best of all was the pool, electrolysed but not chlorinated so the kids stayed in it for hours,and heated but refreshingly cool in the heat of the day, as was the accomodation, which needed no aircon due to its thick walls keeping it comfortable.

The cottage was spacious, well equipped and easily maintained, saving us having it cleaned before we left. A range of books, DVDs, VHS tapes, children's toys, poolside toys and table tennis table were also available.

On the estate, the dogs Suki and Meg enjoyed being taken on wandering walks in and around the fields. The spa with jacuzzi, sauna and multijet shower was a welcome facility also.

Easily accessible nearby is Auch town, with interesting sights, varied restaurants and market days. Further afield are artificial lakes with slides , though the water there feels a lot colder than the pool back at the chateau. Safari parks about 75 mins away too.
