Modernised old farmhouse. Superb views. Private heated pool. Sleeps 8 plus baby



Updated: 31-Aug-2016
Stone farmhouse near Condom, Gers, Midi-Pyrenees, France

Au Chicot is a charming old stone farmhouse which has retained its character features: high ceilings, fine exposed beams and stonework, solid wood floors, but has been modernised to provide plenty of light and space and all the facilities you would expect for quality holiday accommodation. A rare feature of the property is that almost all windows have extensive views. The interior is a blend of French country antique furniture and contemporary comfortable pieces. The ground floor has three sets of large French windows which ensure that the house gets the full benefit of the far reaching views over the countryside. Décor is light and neutral. The garden and pool are designed to maximise the benefit of the house’s countryside location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to say thank you for letting us share your beautiful property, we had the most fantastic week at Le Chicot. We had sunshine, great views, the grape harvest, and an Armagnac tasting, not to mention a special wedding ! The house had absolutely everything we could have wanted, and your caretaker went out out of his way to be helpful; our baby grandaughter loved her high chair and had her first tentative dip in a swimming pool. Once again many thanks for a lovely and memorable stay. Peter"
