About the property

Self-Catering apartment in Villefranche d'Astarac, Nr. Auch, Occitanie, France - Rurally located, with many facilities, yet only 3 km from Simorre, a village with all amenities.

Bike camping france incorporating La Haille Gîtes are registered with the Gers Regional Tourism Board, 3 étoiles. Both of our two apartments are clean and comfortable with many facilities to help you relax and enjoy your holiday. The apartments, which open out to the 11 meter pool with BBQ, may be rented for a group of up to seven people thus ensuring exclusivity and that you have the place to yourselves.

The property itself is located on a cul-de-sac and set on top of its own hill within 100 acres of private land, thus offering uninterrupted stunning views, south towards the Pyrénées and guaranteed peace and tranquility.

Although rurally located, Simorre, a village with all amenities is just 3 km where you will find for example two bakers, a small supermarket, a cafe/bar and a wine bar.

This beautiful relatively undiscovered part of France, offers the holidaymaker an abundance of tracks and trails both for walking and biking, with leisure lakes nearby.

With both cultural and UNESCO world heritage sites to be visited, daily nearby local markets, museums, or vineyards there is something for all tastes here in the Gers.

'Sunnycroft' is a South facing bungalow apartment with two separate bedrooms ideal for a family of four or for those who have difficulty with stairs.

The gite opens onto the open plan lounge which is equipped with two sofas, English free to view satellite television, a DVD/CD player along with a few DVDs both for adults and children, a radio and a selection of books that include some books for younger children. The kitchen/diner area is alongside and this is equipped with a table and four chairs, fridge/freezer, a microwave, a gas oven with four gas rings, a gas kettle, an electric kettle, electric whisk/blender, cutlery, crockery and pans etc.

The back bedroom is furnished with two single bunk beds, (90 cm x 190 cm), and a chair. The master bedroom has a double bed, (140 cm x 190 cm), and a chair, with two small steps leading to the en-suite bathroom with bath/shower, toilet and basin.

Sunnycroft is fully centrally heated with thermostat controls for Winter lets and fans provided for Summer lets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found La Haille Gîtes to be very well equipped and clean, in a lovely setting with wonderful views and a peaceful environment. The swimming pool was excellent and the surrounding countryside offered beautiful walking and interesting towns. We enjoyed it so much we stayed for an extra week! It has been refreshing to stay in a place that is actually run professionally as a business and we have stayed in quite a few! The walks are very well numbered and marked with plenty to choose from making it a perfect hiking area. Thank you again for making us so welcome.



My wife and I had a wonderful weeks stay at La Haille Gîtes in August. We loved the beautiful countryside with distant views of the Pyrénées, even from the pool. The owners had lots of time for their guests and took me out on the marked cycle trails. There was a games room, rope swing and tree house for young children at the gite and hire bikes were also available. The accommodation was clean, well equipped and informative.
