Welcome to Le Marcade, our holiday home in the sun.
Le Marcade is our beautiful Gascon farmhouse situated deep in the peaceful Gers countryside in S.W. France. It is ideal for couples with or without children seeking a relaxing and cosseted break far from the madding crowd.
The house has been lovingly and tastefully re-created from an old Gascon farmhouse which was built in the early 1800’s. It is on one level and now has a fully modernised and equipped kitchen, 2 beautiful bathrooms (1 en-suite) both with a bath and walk-in wet room style shower. Outside the house sits in its own gardens with an outdoor swimming pool 12m x 5m, children’s play area and set in the midst of the beautiful Gers countryside.
With its 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and 1 children’s bedroom, the property is ideally suited for up to 6 adults and 2 children. Babies and young children are well catered for with 2 high chairs and 2 cots available if required, along with all the other necessary baby paraphernalia to make your travelling easier.
For those who need to stay in touch with the outside world there is satellite English TV, French digital TV and WiFi Broadband access.
We are located just 2 miles from the village of Montesquiou where the village store will cater for most of your necessities including fresh meat and bread. There’s also a Pharmacy, Post Office and cash point in the village, while just a little further afield (15-20 minutes) the towns of Mirande and Vic Fezensac have all the shopping amenities you should require as well as weekly markets – Mondays and Fridays respectively.
Montesquiou is situated in the Department of Gers whose capital is Auch ( a 30 minute drive away). The Gers is one of 8 departments making up the region of Midi Pyrenees and whilst it is one of the least populated of French areas, the Gers is full of things to do and see if you are of an active disposition. If not it is ideal for lazing around with its long hot summers and an abundance of eating establishments.
A quiet spot in the rose garden.
