Description from owner

Description

La Grande Borde is a very special place. The building was constructed during the 18th Century and is a typical Gascony Manor House. The thick limestone walls give a golden glow and in the heat of the summer the house remains cool.

Inside La Grande Borde has been sympathetically restored to create a spacious comfortable home whilst maintaining some of the original internal features. Oaked beamed ceilings are everywhere. Downstairs the floors are tiled whilst upstairs there are traditional wooden floors. All bathrooms are newly equipped. As well as the dining room, there is a new large kitchen/breakfast room with granite work surfaces and large wooden breakfast table and chairs. The games room offers a newly restored professional full size billiard table. The rooms are tastefully furnished.

Outside in the 11,000 square metres of landscaped garden, there are numerous tables to eat al-fresco. The house is south facing as are most of the gardens. It also has its own Walnut Tree

Outside in the 11,000 square metres of landscaped garden, there are numerous tables to eat al-fresco. The house is south facing as are most of the gardens. It also has its own Walnut Tree orchard. Wildlife wanders freely and you will often see deer running through the garden.

Its peacefulness makes this house an ideal spot for the budding artist or writer. You can feel totally relaxed here.

The house is totally surrounded by beautiful farmland, giving you the impression of seclusion, yet you are only 15 minutes away from all the major shops and facilities in Auch. There are many chateaux to visit in the region.

The historical city of Auch, capital of the Gers, is only 13 kms away where there are numerous restaurants and shops. The 17th-century musketeer D'Artagnan, one of The Three Musketeers of Alexandre Dumas fame, actually existed and was born in the Gers and the museum devoted to him is about 30 minutes away. You are 10 minutes away from your nearest local shop, post-office and restaurant.

There is so much to see in this particular part of South West France. From Roman villas to Jazz festivals, abbeys to chateaux, walking to horse riding, the region has it all

The scenery is of rolling hills and this is an ideal property from which to explore the region and a haven of tranquility to return to at the end of a leisurely day.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Castelnau-Barbarens

Tranquil and surrounded by countryside but not isolated! Excellent links at top of the hill to the cathederal city of Auch and the many delightful villages nearby, such as Castelnau-Barbarens, Gimont, Samatan, Simorre etc. Also easy access to the many interesting historical sites in the Gers - Loupiac (birth place of Dartagnan of the Three Musketeers), the roman villa at Seviac, amazing art collection at the Abbey of Flaran - to mention a few. The region also hosts festivals of Jazz, Latin Tempo and Country music in the summer months as well as night markets and wine and food festivals. Country walks from Castelnau-Barbarens nearby. Nearest restaurant is in Pessan (7.5 km) plus many in Auch. Nearest small general store is in Castelnau-Barb
