Overview

About the property

Recently renovated house in a pretty arcaded square, backing onto the old 14th century town wall in the beautiful village of Saint-Clar. Open plan ground floor leading to back outdoor terrace. Ground floor has lounge area, including wi-fi and dvd player, dining area for up to eight, new kitchen equipped with hob, oven, fridge, dishwasher. Double bedroom, twin bedroom, and bathroom on first floor. Double bedroom in studio off the terrace with en suite shower, adjacent to utility area with freezer and washing machine. Additional wc on upper terrace level. Garage area with table tennis table and 3 bikes at lower level.

Magnificent views from the capacious south-facing terrace across the Arratz valley to the rolling countryside of the Gers. Easy parking in the square by the house.

Saint-Clar is a lively ancient village with two historic squares. It has all the amenities, including a weekly market, two artisan bakeries, a butcher, two chemists, newsagent, a bar and restaurant - all within walking distance. An excellent large swimming lake with flumes and restaurant is a 5 minute drive from the house.

The village is in the heart of the Gascony countryside, with many nearby gourmet restaurants, historic towns, beautiful landscapes – on a clear day you can see the white peaks of the Pyrenees – and good walks, including sections of the Routes St Jacques. Toulouse - 1 hour away, Auch - 40 minutes, Agen – 40 minutes. Andorra and the Pyrenees are not much more than 2 hours away.

Nearest airport - Toulouse. Bergerac, Bordeaux, Carcassonne and Tarbe-Lourdes airports all with easy reach.

About The Owner

We had been on several great holidays in the past with our family and friends and have been surprised that Gascony is not better known. It is much less touristy than the Dordogne but still with big landscapes of rolling countryside, picturesque villages and wonderful food. We are both academics, semi-retired, but still working on projects. We have lived in various towns in the UK and are now in Southampton.

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Saint-Clar

We decided to buy no. 26 as we liked the idea of being in a bustling village rather than a remote place in the countryside. St Clar itself is close to a variety of airports - also an important consideration for a holiday destination. Although a car is essential to get here, we don’t require it for any of our basic needs - food, newspapers, chemist etc.

What makes this house unique

Each time we come we discover new things. There are big towns nearby –Toulouse, Auch, Agen - for a bit of culture, and no shortage of picturesque villages and Romanesque architecture all around. We can enjoy the daily ritual of walking to the baker for our bread for breakfast and start the day on the terrace as the sun rises. We have converted it into a family house for us and our family to use, as well as letting it out when we can’t be here.

a clean, ancient house in a lovely, quiet villaage

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious enough for our family of 6 adults . The characterful rooms are large as is the outside terrace overlooking the hills. We thought we would miss having a garden, but we didn't. There is a path just round the corner which circles the village, and for further exploration, we used the bikes in the garage.

We loved having two bakeries and a few other little shops and a post office nearby. Swimming in the nearby lake was perfect in the hot weather, and the tour (Saturday and Sunday afternoons only) of the chateau at Avezan is excellent, especially if you understand French or can bring a friend to translate

Gorgeous, homely and in the middle of a village

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable gite which felt like a home. Well equipped kitchen. Lots of space for eating and sitting inside and out. Three large bedrooms, one of which is more separate and self-contained. We enjoyed the books. Good internet. Great views. Cool and airy even in mid-30 degree heat. Use of bicycles was a bonus. House was very clean when we arrived and we were made very welcome by the owner's agent. The owner has been helpful throughout. St Clar is a beautiful bastide village, but with two bakeries, a butcher, a weekly market and a supermarket. The gite is in the old village centre. Lectoure and Fleurance worth visiting. We would love to come back and will recommend to friends.

nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Saint Clar, le gite est très bien situé dans le village. Le logement en lui même est très confortable et la terrasse très agréable.
