Le Vieux Presbytère is a beautiful 400 yr old presbytery situated in a small hamlet in Gascony, South West France. The barn, attached to Le Presbytère, has recently been converted into two beautiful self-contained holiday gites, keeping some of the French charm but with all modern amenities. They are privately situated at the end of the owner's property, sleep a maximum of 6 and 4 and are surrounded by fruit trees, pine trees and fields. A step away from the gites is the azure coloured 10 x 5m salt-water swimming pool, which is alarmed.
La Mouette and L'Hérisson each have a large double bedroom and sitting area on the mezzanine floor with a west facing balcony - perfect for sunset drinks! La Mouette also has a twin bedroom on the ground floor with a shower room downstairs and bathroom upstairs. The sitting and dining areas are open plan with well equipped kitchens and wood burning stoves. Both have an eating out and barbeque area looking out over the gardens, avenues of pine trees and fields beyond. All bed linen, bath towels are provided but please bring your own swimming towels.
L’Atelier, for bed and breakfast, is part of the main house with its own entrance looking out onto the garden and pool. The bedroom has a sitting/reading area and a luxury bathroom with roll top bath and a wet room with monsoon shower. Dinner is available to guests on request.
Set in the golden triangle of Armagnac country in Gascony, Le Vieux Presbyère nestles into the hillside on the edge of the hamlet of Noulens. This sleepy village is surrounded by vineyards, fields of sunflowers and maize and has lovely views to the Pyrenees. This is rural France at its best! The Gers, where people live longer, is endowed with clear unpolluted skies, little traffic, friendly people, a temperate climate and a variety of fresh country produce found in the daily village markets. The area is renowned for its duck, foie gras and armagnac and during the summer there are many festivals such as Jazz at Marciac, Country and Western at Mirande, Tempo Latino at Vic-Fezensac, bullfighting and horse racing.
There is always something to see and do in the area from visiting medieval bastide villages (this is D'Artagnan country), beautiful landscapes, wine and armagnac tasting, collecting antiques, riding, walking and cycling (bicycles provided) to just lazing by the pool on a hot summer's afternoon with a glass of fresh local wine!
