Overview

About the property

Unforgettable Experiences Shared by the Lucky Few

Set in 50 acres of meadow and woodlands between Toulouse and Bordeaux and part of a beautiful 150 year old farmhouse with 12m x 6m pool, this gite has been sympathetically restored to a very high standard. Tranquil and private, a fantastic location.

By the pilgrimage route to Saint Jacques de Compostelle and la Chevauchée d’Henri IV, we are located in the heart of beautiful Gascony, between the lively towns of Nérac and Condom.

The property is split into two adjoining buildings but only rented together to the same group.

Gite 1

The gite is arranged over two floors (95m2).

Downstairs there is a very spacious living area with satellite TV, DVD, WiFi and music system. Fully equipped kitchen. Double patio doors opening onto terrace BBQ and pool area.

Upstairs there are 2 Large double bedrooms with own ensuite and far reaching views.

Gite 2

The gite is arranged over two floors (145m2).

Downstairs there is a very spacious living area with satellite TV, DVD, WiFi and music system. Toilet. Fully equipped kitchen. Double patio doors opening onto terrace BBQ and pool area.

Upstairs there are 3 Large double bedrooms (1 en-suite) with far reaching views. A separate bathroom and toilet.

The pool is 6m x 12m. On site, other activities include table tennis, basketball, shooting, archery, cycling, board games, or just relaxing.

The pool and gardens are tended weekly. Bed linen and towels are changed weekly. A cleaning service is available.

Close by you can enjoy just about anything - walks, cycling, golf, tennis, horse riding, kayaking, karting, theme parks, shopping, wine and armagnac tasting, casinos and much more.

Further afield, day trips will allow you to enjoy the beach on the Atlantic or Mediterranean coast, skiing, surfing, rafting.

We are located in an area famous for its gastronomy. Surrounded by opportunities to visit markets, chateaux, and domains, you can enjoy sampling the local food, wine and armagnac before settling into a relaxing meal at one of the many restaurants, from auberge to Michelin star.

Throughout the year there are numerous fetes, music festivals and exhibitions.

To make your holiday even more enjoyable, we can arrange for a local chef to prepare delicious French cuisine at very reasonable prices, allowing you to spend a relaxing evening in.

For that extra special something, we can arrange for a range of therapists to spend an hour, a day (or more if you want!) with you. These offer services ranging from complementary therapies to help you relax and improve your general well being to traditional beauty treatments and exercise.

For those who are looking to buy a holiday home or to relocate, Baron Figuès may be the perfect base to carry out your search from.

About Caroline

In 2003 Caroline and her husband, Adam, decided to leave their comfortable life in Kent and, with their four young children, headed off on a new adventure to France. Summers spent holidaying by the Mediterranean had instilled in them a love of outdoor life but looking back, this was probably madness as they had little French and no real idea of what they were coming to. Nonetheless, they set off in their old Landrover and settled in the beautiful countryside of SW France. 12 years on they have no regrets. Caroline, a qualified teacher for over 20 years loves her work running PMC Studio France. She enjoys meeting fascinating people from all over the world who come to learn or simply enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Caroline purchased this farmhouse in 2004

A little slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5

Baron-Figus is a little slice of heaven in the French countryside and provides the ideal setting to immerse yourself in a local experience. A wonderful opportunity to cook with interesting local ingredients and come away with some tasty recipes and clever tips. I found the entire experience relaxing and a lot of fun. Carolyn and Adam are fabulous hosts who leave you feeling like an old friend catching up over great food and wine

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Had I taken the time to define what would be the perfect trip for me, I could not have imagined the trip to be as perfect as it actually was.

Well equiped inside and out, clean and secluded.

Plenty of restaurants nearby and lots to see and do. Great for walking and cycling.

We all had a great time.

I am definitely planning to return to experience another vacation of a lifetime! The pictures don’t do it justice.

Wholeheartedly recommend

  • 5 of 5

In responnse to a review of this property that I simply cannot understand I have gone to the trouble of signing up here to leave a more accurate review of the place based on our Holiday there.

My friends and I spent a week at Baron Figues - a girls holiday away from stress was the plan! Everybody involved made this a trip that will never be forgotten and forever treasured! Caroline and Adam simply couldn't do enough to make sure we had an amazing time. The surroundings, the pool, and activities were an added bonus although we were busy wine-tasting, eating local delicacies and visiting Bordeaux! I really felt that everybody made a huge effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We loved every minute of it and I would wholeheartedly recommend it - a great way to immerse yourself in rural France!

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Gîte très bien situé (pas de voisins donc tranquillité absolue ce qui correspondait à nos attentes). Logement très agréable et équipements complets (2 terrasses dont une au milieu du jardin avec une plancha pour de parfaits barbecues). Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour.

Ce que Arn a beaucoup aimé dans votre logement :

L'espace et le fait d'être seuls sans voisinage.

Ce que Arn pense que vous pourriez améliorer :

Il faudrait ajouter davantage de photos sur l'annonce car on ne voit pas la totalité du gîte : c'est dommage, la maison est vraiment très bien.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Host was very welcoming, met us at property with no delays for key handover. Had left a 'welcome pack' including milk, tea/coffee/juice. The property was exactly as described (we had the entire home) and perfect for our extended family group. Well stocked kitchen. There were many activities provided (swimming pool, badminton, table tennis, pool table). We used the barbecue almost every night. Fairly remote, but easy enough to get to town for shopping by car.

Ce que Francesca a beaucoup aimé dans votre logement :

I loved all the activities available, the privacy of the property, the fact that all rooms have their own bathroom, the fact that the kitchens had all the utensils we needed and that we had barbecue facilities.
