About Alex

We live with our two children at Prada all year round. We love the area and feel the house is perfectly positioned to explore the very best of the Gers. It is a beautiful house with all mod cons and comfortable living accommodation. And we enjoy the climate and feel very lucky to be bringing our children up in a house boasting a beautiful garden with a pool.

Alex purchased this farmhouse in 2007

Why Alex chose Gers

We chose to buy in this area as we fell in love with the charms of the Gers and love the laid back way of life. We love the cuisine in this area and enjoy eating out at the vast range of restaurants on our doorstep. We love the calmness of the house and it's countryside position. We are sure you will too!

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are lucky enough to be close to the activities lake in Castera Verduzan which is great for the kids and is always full of life. And also we have a horse racing track just 2 minutes away and an afternoon at the races is a real treat.

There are local markets everyday of the week with abundant produce and artisan products to savour. Over the Summer there are many Vide Greniers and local Fetes to enjoy. You cannot fail to be busy and yet relaxed at the same time!

Try not to fall in love

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our stay was wonderful!!!

Alex and Jo are warm, welcoming and great company, not to mention hosts.

Upon our arrival Alex had researched event and activities to do during our stay as we mentioned we wanted to experience as much as we could and we saw some amazing things we wouldn't have otherwise. With so much to explore and do the days fly by far too quickly and we are already making plans for a return.

The gite is very well equipped, caters for every need of a family and is wonderfully relaxing to return to after a day of activities or to just unwind during the day with nature providing the soundtrack.

The local night markets are a must as are the food and music festivals with so much on offer you don't know where to start.

You are ideally situated for exploring the area with a whole array of little market towns, larger provincial towns and the drive to the Pyrenees is well worth it if you find the time to fit that in. History is everywhere but when your mind is fit to bursting with trying to take it all in you just need to step outside into the evening air and let the open views across rolling hills take your thoughts elsewhere. Falling that, look up at night and if the skies are clear you can watch the best show from earth over a beer or wine.

Many thanks for a wonderful stay and amazing introduction to the area with it's incredibly friendly atmosphere. We'll certainly be returning for more.

Great location, warm welcome, excellent outdoor facilities.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time but were fortunate that the weather was kind. The sleeping accommodation in the gite is very good, but the living area is a bit small if the weather is bad and you have to stay indoors all day. The shower room is also on the small side. That being said, we would certainly be willing to recommend Prada to others. Its strengths are its beautiful location and its superb outdoor facilities (especially the pool). The proprietors were also very helpful.

Relaxing holiday in beautiful Gers

  • 4 of 5

We visited Au Prada for a week in July 2016, and really enjoyed a relaxing time with our family.

The property is set in a rural location with no other properties nearby, and the apartment is a self-contained portion of the overall house.

The outside space was the highlight for us, we particularly enjoyed the pool (which was heated to a nice warm temperature!) there is a nice terrace area with space to BBQ eat and relax. There is also space for the kids to run around, and a large trampoline to tire them out!

Inside the living area was a little on the small side for energetic kids, but with so much space outside this isn’t limiting if the sun is shining.

Alex and Jo were very attentive and gave us some ideas of local things to, but also left us to enjoy our holiday without feeling overlooked.

There is a lake just 5 mins drive away which was great to visit with lots of facilities and things to do for the kids.

The sunsets from the terrace were beautiful, and with the local sunflowers in bloom this part of France was a perfect place to unwind.
