About Paul Robbins

Paul & Pam have lived at Costecoute since 2007 and have restored the original house which dates back to Henry IV. The gite is more recently fitted out (2015/16)

The couple originate from Berkshire and have grown-up children living in Wiltshire.

Paul Robbins purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Paul Robbins chose Avéron-Bergelle

The gite provides extremely comfortable accommodation for a couple or a couple with a young child. Guests enjoy exclusive use of the pool during their stay. The nearest neighbours are over 500 metres away. The property, including the pool, is not overlooked.

What makes this apartment unique

There are extensive 360 degree views around the property. Local crops are mainly vines with some sunflowers and maize. The 3 local towns of Aignan, Eauze and Nogaro provide restaurants, bars and shopping but do not have a single traffic light between them!

This great property will not disappoint, its compact and yet has been carefully designed to include everything you need. It has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard and is spotlessly clean. You have all the necessary items to cook in the high-end kitchen. Sky tv is available should you want it, comfy sofa from which to watch it and a convenient dining or study area. Outside a gas BBQ and seating area directly in front of the accommodation and the heated pool in front of the main house but solely for guest use. Gorgeous rolling countryside views, peace and tranquillity abounds. The welcome pack was vast and very much appreciated. The highlight of my stay was meeting Pam and Paul, a nicer couple one could not wish to meet, I was made to feel truly welcome and included in their social activities including a day out to see the Tour de France and the Bastille celebrations. I feel a genuine friendship and will definitely return at some point in the not too distant future. Thank you both so much, it was a lot of fun!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Venetia stay with us,. Fortunately there was a lot going on locally this week and she was more than happy to join us. We sincerely hope she will return with her hard working husband before too long. Next time we'll visit the local wine 'Caves'.

Perfect location. High quality accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot fault the quality and location of Costecaoute. 360 views of countryside including vines and sunflowers. No near neighbours but local villages good for shopping and lunches out. Amazing value for money €13 Lunch including wine! What's not to like. My favourite was the Magret de canard at a little place called Montesquiou. If we get to return that place is a must. Even a complementary armagnac at the end of the meal.

Great place to relax . . .

  • 5 of 5

This gite has been very well prepared for rental. All mod-cons have been provided with excellent quality furnishings which are really comfortable. The living room is a good space to relax with modern decor and views over the countryside.

The bedroom was a good size with a very comfortable bed - the en-suite bathroom is well appointed leaving you wanting for nothing.

The TV and free wifi all works very well but although necessary these days, the main attraction is the true French countryside for a relaxing drive stopping off at the local market and restaurants.

We strongly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in this part of France. Although Paul and Pam were always available for advice when needed the stay at this gite felt like a private retreat with the lovely heated swimming pool perfect for sunbathing and enjoying the local wine.

This was our second stay and it won't be our last.

We had a fantastic stay. The gite was immaculate and very well equipped and the pool was stunning. The welcome basket on arrival was brilliant and provided all essentials for the stay plus a lovely breakfast for the first morning. The wonderful views are 360 degrees around the property. Pam and Paul the gite owners were the loveliest people and fantastic hosts. The gite would be great for anyone with mobility issues as is on level ground and has great access.

The surrounding towns and villages were lovely with lots of places close by for good food.

We had such a great time, and we cannot wait to go back. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
