From the moment we pulled into the drive of La Clausade we were blown away! The farmhouse is beautifully and sympathetically restored, and inside it is cosy and tastefully decorated. It looks even better in real life than in the photos! The facilities in the house are excellent, with a huge country kitchen equipped with all mod cons to make cooking a joy.
The lush garden is huge and very private. The pool is lovely, lined with sunloungers and parasols- perfect to enjoy a G&T from. It is great for small children who can stand easily in the shallow end, and more than deep enough for for adults to have a dive in the deep end. We also really enjoyed the table tennis and jeu de boules.
Lynette and Tim, the housekeepers that live nearby, were very helpful and patient with our requests. The house was immaculate when we arrived, and there was fresh bread and milk in the fridge- which was a lovely touch. To echo the previous review, the owner- Gordon- made the whole rental process very pleasant and easy, responding promptly to any questions we had.
We were a group of 5 adults and 3 small children- and had plenty of space to spread out and relax, and with 4 bathrooms there were no arguments about who got to shower first! I wholeheartedly recommend La Clausade, especially for a larger group of friends or family.
We booked the house for a group of 7 friends and it could not have been better for a relaxed week. Everything you need is there down to bikes in the barn, table tennis, boules pitch and bbq. We hardly left the house all week - other than to pick up more wine and cheese! The pictures don't do it justice.
2 weeks in the sun in the glorious Gers - so much like Wales with rolling hills and small fields and a perfect release from the beautiful summer in the UK. Plenty of space, plenty to do, and plenty to see - or not. A superb house to entertain with good facilities for all. Even driving across was not too much made a whole lot easier with fuel prices around £1.10 /litre.
La Clausade is a beautifully restored farm house decorated and equipped to a very high level. It is an easy drive from Toulouse, only a little over an hour. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and everything you could need is provided. The grounds are a delight, we felt like we were in a Jane Austin novel. There are lots of private areas to sit in the shade with a good book and relax. The pool is beautiful and a real joy on warm summer days. Tim and Lynette the English speaking managers of the house are charming and offer lots of good advice on markets and restaurants. There are lots of markets and beautiful villages to explore. The area is loaded with great restaurants among then we loved Les Rendez-Vous D’Eole just outside Simorre, Au Canard Gourmand just outside Samatan and the Feme Auberge de Peguilhan near Boulogne/Gesse. Finally Gordon the owner made the whole process very easy and was always there to answer any questions.
We spent a lovely week in La Clausade together with our best friends. The house is very well equipped and has a wonderful site in the landscape. You feel just like the owners have left the house the day before and you feel at home immediately.
The service provided was very good and we enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of space and our children (between 15 and 19 years old) enjoyed of course the luxury swimming pool and the mountainbikes.
It's a place we can recommend to everyone.
Toulouse is only an hour drive away and within 1,5 hour you are in the Pyrenees.
It was great!!!!!
With six adults and 3 children to accomodate, La Clausade needed to be big, and I must say, the photographs do not do it justice. The house has been beautifully renovated, is tremendously spacious and has a wonderful combination of traditional and modern touches. It is in a lovely, private location which gives the feel of truly getting away from it all. The overall feel of the property is that it is a home that has been well-loved and carefully renovated to provide a stylish and unique holiday let.
All of the bedrooms were large and the bathrooms modern and hotel-like. The kitchen is fantastic, particularly the range and huge fridge-freezer. The dining areas, both inside and out are large and perfect for family feasts. Having the satellite TV is a nice bonus, when swimming in the pool becomes too much!
The outside space is a real treat. Our children loved exploring amongst the apple and pear trees, discovering the hammock, swing and of course pool along the way. Sitting outside into the late evening with the stereo playing (outside speakers!) was wonderful.
The pool is wonderful - very clean, great for diving and for teaching the kids to swim.
All in all, this was a great experience. The house fit us all easily, and could have accomodated another couple without much trouble.
The surrounding area has plenty to do, particularly following the markets which are easy to get to and good fun. Also, the owner has provided a very useful guide to both the area, with dates of what goes on where, and a thorough guide to the house itself. Auch and Tolouse are well within reach.
Also, having the housekeepers in the village is great peace of mind - not that you should need them!
I can't speak highly enough of La Clausade, and would certainly reccommend it to anyone looking for a stylish and traditional French holiday. The owner was very helpful throughout, and we are already planning to come again!

Een grote selectie van lokale restaurants, brocantes en vele feesten het hele gebied zorgen voor een heerlijke lokale sfeer. Voor de actieve hebben we een groot zwembad, tafeltennis, fietsen (voor de vroege vogels het brood en croissants in de ochtend verzamelen - u zult niet geloven hoe leeg de wegen zijn), diverse golfbanen, tennis in de buurt, Kanovaren op de rivieren, vissen, wandelen in de lokale platteland of in de prachtige Pyreneeën.
Er zijn meren met glijbanen, boom wandelingen en pretparken in de Pyreneeën.
