About the property

Farmhouse in Valence-sur-Baise, Gers, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Overlooks Vineyards And Rolling Countryside In The Baïse Valley

Welcome to La Courtade, a superb, spacious Gascon farmhouse with magnificent, panoramic views to the Pyrenees over sunflowers, vines and wheat fields. It stands in an elevated position on ¾ acre of well-maintained garden with a salt-water heated pool and large, shaded veranda around the house. The house has been imaginatively and meticulously restored and has a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, 2 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a farmhouse kitchen and large drawing room furnished with oriental carpets and comfortable sofas. It is situated in south-west France in the department of the Gers (Midi-Pyrenees). The Gers has an enviable climate of long, hot summers and sunny autumns. It has beautiful, unspoilt scenery which is ideal for walking, cycling or simply soaking up the views while enjoying some of the excellent local wines.
