Do it, you won't regret it!
We are a family of 5 and stayed with Amanda and Colin for two weeks in August. Communication was prompt and helpful, even when we had lots of questions. They even offered to cook a meal for our arrival!
We arrived after a looooong drive and were met by the owners who gave us a brief tour and suggested we cool off in the pool. What a pool it is! The photos really can't do justice and we spent time relaxing there every day. The pool is saltwater and really gentle on skin and eyes. The outlook is beautiful and totally private. It was also kept meticulously clean through the whole of our stay. They had also left us a pack of essentials in case we didn't have time to pick up supplies.
The house is wonderful, furnished with french antiques ( my daughter (11) said it was the poshest house we'd ever stayed in) but loads of convenience too. The broadband was fast enough to stream, essential when travelling with a teenager!
Beds were lovely and comfortable, top quality linens and pillows. Definitely not your usual rental!
Amanda and Colin are lovely hosts, always about when you need a bit of local information but not intrusive. When one of our party was taken unexpectedly in to hospital they could not have been more helpful. The setting is perfect, totally relaxing but within easy reach of lots to towns and markets.
We would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful place.
We so enjoyed meeting you all and thank you for this lovely review. Since this is our first year renting the Winery, it's really appreciated to have a detailed review for future clients. And you are most welcome back anytime!
The sun continues to shine in the Gers, it's now jam making time -figs, peaches, plums, quinces, grapes.
Very best wishes to you all,
Amanda and Colin
Quiet holiday home in stunning countryside
We enjoyed a memorable family holiday at La Raillere in July 2018. The house, which adjoins the owners’, is on a hill with a pool as pictured, surrounded by stunning scenery amidst arable farms and fields of sunflowers. This house is the perfect place for a quiet break away from it all. Downstairs offers one large open plan room with the kitchen and a large dining room table and chairs; two big comfortable sofas are by the TV. The kitchen is reasonably well equipped. The downstairs room is wonderfully cool as it faces north. Upstairs there are 2 rooms with double beds and a third twin room, all are beautifully decorated and we found the double beds very comfortable. One double room overlooks the owner’s garden and another the lane and fields. The owners provided delicious homemade produce which we loved: honey, fig and plum jams. The pool area is stunning, and sitting there with a good book it was very easy to unwind. We didn’t know this area at all and enjoyed exploring: Larressingle, Lavardens and Valence-sur-Baïse where we enjoyed a robust lunch at La Table d’Emma. Auch is about 25 mins away. The Friday morning market at Vic- Fezensac buzzes with locals and tourists alike and the town also has excellent restaurants. Jegun is small with a Petit Casino selling the basics including milk, there's also one restaurant, an Irish pub and an excellent pharmacy. We found out during our stay that there are many walks in the area so on another visit, it would be worth being better prepared. A circular route goes past the house, of which we walked only half as it was so hot. The owners have two dogs, two ponies and a cat, all friendly!
We found the outside table and chairs at the front of the house not so comfortable for eating at. The only other downside were the flies!
But these did not detract from our enjoyment. The owners couldn’t have been kinder, were on hand to answer our questions and pointed us in the direction of an excellent local vineyard. We enjoyed hot weather, punctuated by terrific storms which cooled us all down and the breath-taking sunsets were unforgettable. This was a truly refreshing holiday.
Dear Emma, thank you for this lovely review - we enjoyed meeting you all, and seeing you all relax more day by day.
We've had wonderful summer weather, still continuing now in mid-September, so I am enjoying my evening swims 'into the sunset'. It's jam making time - fig, plum and peach - very rewarding. plus many jars of preserved tomatoes for the winter months.
We are working out a design for a more intimate sitting area which will be done in the winter and will be on the big lawn, and will be covered in roses.
Very best wishes to you all, Amanda
Nous avons passé une semaine chez Amanda et Colin, et ce fut un vrai plaisir...
L'endroit est charmant, le logement et les couchages sont parfaits et les hôtes vraiment sympathiques. Pour exemple, comme nous arrivions tard, Colin nous avait préparé un repas (hachis parmentier tout juste divin... Que l'on ne me dise plus que les Anglais ne savent pas cuisiner...!!!!)
Le logement est grand, propre et tout y est pour passer un très bon moment, la piscine a une vue sublime...
Amanda nous a donné de précieux conseils sur ce que nous devions voir dans la région, et ce fut un grand plaisir de discuter avec eux.
Merci à tous les deux pour cette excellente semaine, nous reviendrons...
