About the property

The house is a perfect holiday base for couples or families

Clement La Baste is a charming 250 year old Gascon farmhouse set in one acre of private grounds in the stunning Gers countryside in one of the most unspoilt areas of France.

Situated north of the Pyrenees near the tranquil village of Demu en Armagnac between the chic seaside town of Biarritz and the beautiful city of Toulouse, Clement La Baste is a wonderful base for exploring one of France’s best kept secrets.

The house is a perfect holiday base for couples or families and comes with a large swimming pool and a private tennis court plus a selection of terraces and outdoor eating areas looking out across the beautiful Gers countryside.

Inside the house oozes character and retains many original features while still providing modern and comfortable accommodation for up to eight people, and includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is also a cot available for guests with young families.

The house also has a study with full broadband internet access and has a 42 inch plasma television with satellite coverage and, of course, a fully equipped kitchen.

Clement La Baste provides a wonderful haven for a comfortable and stylish holiday providing the opportunity to explore Gascony and sample the wonderful food and wines this part of France has to offer.

Clement La Baste is available for rent throughout the year and in addition to full central heating is equipped with wood burning stoves and a free supply of logs.

The Gers is studded with Gascon delights — wonderful food, superb wines and friendly locals. The area is dotted with sleepy villages basking in the rolling hills and is often likened to the England of 50 years ago.

In summer there are a myriad of village fêtes plus wine and music festivals. It is a mecca for jazz lovers and is home to the Internationally famous Marciac Jazz fortnight every August. It has hosted Diana Krall, Wynton Marsalis and — many years ago — Ella Fitzgerald.

In Mirande, 45 minutes away, there is a country music festival held in the summer. Actor Larry Hagman was once seen there. And a Latino music festival takes place in Vic Fezensac at the end of every July.

The small village of Dému En Armagnac is just 5 minutes away by car — with a grocery, garage and bakers.

The town of Vic Fezensac is less than 10 minutes drive and boasts 12 restaurants plus banks, bakers, butchers, assorted shops, cinema and various bars and cafés. There is an excellent market every Friday.

Within a 45 minute drive there are many delightful villages and small towns with more restaurants and cafés. Bastide villages built in the 13th century are plentiful as are walled villages of great charm.

What makes this house unique

The house is surrounded by vineyards and tastings abound. Cote de Gascogne, St Mont and Madiran wines are sensational and growing in poularity throughout the world.

The roads are very often empty although the main RN 124 runs nearby and goes from the Atlantic coast to Toulouse on modern carriageway. Many of the small roads are excellent and charming to drive.

The Pyrenées are 1.5 hours drive and from the top of the road near the house, the mountains can be clearly seen on about 50 days in the year.

The Atlantic coast and beaches are 2 hours away.

Bordeaux is 2 hours to the north west and beautiful Toulouse, France’s second largest City is 1.5 hours to the east.
