About Sarah Francis

As an avid Francophile involved in helping other people to acquire their homes in France for the past twenty five years, it has taken a long time to have the opportunity to realise my own dream but this house has more than fulfilled my every expectation. It is a very warm and welcoming home which lends itself readily to happy holiday gatherings. It would seem a shame were it not to be enjoyed to the full in this role to which it seems to well suited..

Why Sarah Francis chose Gers

This most unspoilt part of Gascony has long been a favourite - as much for the its stunning backdrop of the snow capped Pyrénées and the beautiful patchwork of rolling hills and wide valleys topped with bastides and little villages - as for the easy pace of life and the friendly nature of the local people. There is very little to disturb one in our hilltop idyll - surrounded by farming country with the occasional passing deer or sanglier in winter and buzzards wheeling overhead. Our neighbour has a donkey and we hear the occasional cockerel but passing cars are few and far between at the end of the drive and it really is a haven of peace and tranquillity to which we have been fortunate enough to be drawn.

What makes this house unique

Within 3-4 minutes is a colourful small town with Monday market that boasts a bar, cafe, boulangerie and 8 à 8 supermarket ( 9-1 on Sundays) as well as a chemist, bank and post office. A swimming lake with slide, restaurant and a tree climbing course with harnesses manned in July and August. Nearby Lupiac, birthplace of D'Artagnan also has a swimming lake with restaurant. Plaisance, 5 minutes away has a thursday market, banks etc, mini golf, lake and the local Plaimont chai with excellent wines. Marciac hosts its annual international jazz festival some 25 minutes away and has a market on wednesdays. Spain, Skiing and the coast are all within reach for a day trip, as are Toulouse, Bordeaux & Pau - all with airports and excellent shops and restaurants. Tarbes Lourdes (40 mins) Ryannair.

Amazing Mountain Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely welcoming family house last summer (2014).

We were a group of ten. Plenty of space for everyone and the children loved the Pool, table tennis, table football and badminton.

The location was great for us with stunning views.

The house was well equipped and well maintained.

Plenty of local produce in the colourful local markets. Excellent local wine.

The Marciac Jazz Festival was such fun for all the family.

We will definitely return. We had a wonderful stay.
