luxury Holiday Gite, in the Village of SOS , Gascony. This old cottage has been transformed into a stunning luxury gite. log inglenook fireplace, farmhouse kitchen, large private securely fenced patio area with bbq large peach and fig orchard to wonder through or just sit and take in the French sunshine. WE also have an a similar Gite next to the large gite, which sleeps 4/6 ideal for extra family or friends!please enquire. Shared Pool between the two gites.

This amazing area of France is sometime described as the Tuscany of France, has rolling hills of vineyards, meandering rivers, forests to explore, and wonderful Cities and towns. In the summer months theer are music festivals all over the region.

We would recommend a car. Car hire in France is very reasonable.

There are night markets during July and August in surrounding villages,which are great fun,selling local produce ,which is cooked for you ,tables and chairs are provided,and of course the excellent selections of Bordeaux wines.our village of Sos,has its night market on Wednesday,and is only 3 mins walk from the gite!

Nerac and Condom are our nearest large towns,both have the river Baisse running through them,where you can hire boats,or go on organised boat trips.they also both have excellent markets.

There are fantastic open air swimming pools all around the nearest is in Mezin,which is 8 mins from SOS,there is an amazing water park in Gondrin,which is about 20 min drive. Kayaking on the nearby rivers,walking cycling and horse riding in the forest which adjoins Sos .

We are inundated with fabulous restaurants,which we can recommend,obviously we have had to do extensive research on this !

About louise Dubrey

We have been living in France for a year now, Having left Cornwall and running a country pub for 8 years, time for a change!All are children have fled the nest ,and are still living in the UK.

We are both interested in the French cuisine, and love exploring the many restaurants around the area.

We have two young English pointers, They are well trained and love people,they have there own area in the garden, away from the guest areas.

louise Dubrey purchased this cottage in 2015

Why louise Dubrey chose Sos

We chose Gascony, as it is a new area of France that we didn't know,and immediately fell in love with the rolling countryside. Beautiful towns and rivers.

We have a classic boat which we brought over form Cornwall,and have discovered the wonderful waterways of south west France.

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful location,within walking distance of Village (3 MIns} with all amenities

Stunning Gite in Sos

Well laid out property with delightful BBQ area

  • 4 of 5

This well laid out accommodation provides everything you need for a peaceful holiday on the edge of a small village with shop and bar/bistro. The BBQ area in a dedicated section of the garden is a delight. The owners are friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. Highly recommended.

Peaceful, comfortable well maintained gite,

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 days in August 2016, 2 adults 2 girls aged 12 and 14.

Our first impressions entering the gite on a 30 something degree afternoon was how cool the inside of the thick stone walled cottage was. The upstairs bedrooms did get warm during the evenings but the cool downstairs remained very comfortable.

The interior is tastefully decorated and the large farmhouse kitchen with long table excellent for those long family breakfasts. The private BBQ area is a lovely space for outdoor eating, reading, relaxing - leading onto the large orchard.

The grocery shop in the village 3 mins walk away really has everything you'd need, more so than you'd think for a quiet village of this size. We tried the bistro restaurant which had friendly if not the fastest service.

The property would be improved greatly by a swimming pool as there is no nearby river swimming (that we could find anyway) and the 3 water park type facilities we visited were between 15 and 30 minutes drive. Our favourites were the nearby Nirac water parc and the "wipeout" style parc 25mins drive away.

All in all a very pleasant stay - and as a road cyclist must add that the quiet, well maintained roads and bike friendly drivers made the morning rides a pleasure.

Well equipped gite in an unspoilt part of France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in this lovely, well appointed gite. We were made very welcome by Louise and Gunton and nothing was too much trouble. As a family (we have two boys aged 7 and 12) we really enjoyed exploring Gascony, which felt like a hidden gem and very unspoilt. The boys loved playing in the orchard with the owner's friendly dogs. We would definitely recommend this gite to our friends.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est très bien équipé. La piscine et l'espace à l'extérieur sont un plus appréciable. La situation fut gîte permet de découvrir le gers, les Landes et le lot et Garonne. On peut facilement aller au restaurant ou faire ses courses à Sos. Un grand bravo pour son marché des producteurs du mercredi soir !! Un grand merci aux propriétaires pour leur accueil et leur petites attentions à notre arrivée.

Bonnes vacances

  • 3 of 5

Si vous aimez le calme absolu (la première grande surface est à au moins 15 km) mais il y a une superette et une pizzeria dans le village

Si vous n'aimez pas trop le soleil (un jour sur deux)

Si vous êtes deux à quatre pas plus

Si vous avez envie d'apprendre l'anglais

Ce gîte est fait pour vous

Sinon les lieux sont paisibles ,la ville de Nérac et son marché ( à 20km) sont charmants

La piscine est très propre et à bonne température (23° min)

Le coin barbecue est fort sympathique (attention aux moustiques)
