Better than we expected!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Abbital Faget for 2 1/2 weeks. The house is truly "ideal for recharging". While very rural, it was also very close to both small villages and larger cities. The house itself was lovely. A 200 year old farmhouse, very modern inside, very large kitchen by European standards, full sized refrigerator, large dining table seating 6 with large table outside on covered patio for al fresco dining. 2 large screen TVs with dish TV and wifi. Very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, extremely clean house with all necessary utensils.

Philippe and his sister Aline could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They gave us suggestions and advice and we visited many of the villages they told us about. Helpful to download a translation app before you go unless you speak French. We left our maps and travel books at the house. It is imperative to rent a car. The villages are closer than they appear and Auch, the largest close city is only about 20-25 minutes drive. Simorre is the closet village and we preferred the smaller bakery for bread and amazing quiche. The best pastry shop we found was about a 10-15 minute drive to Lombez. Fantastic selection of pastries, chocolates and bread. Be sure to try their amazing flat bread with both grated cheese and mounds of fresh goat cheese. Also, not to be missed is Albi, a beautiful city just

past Toulouse, a little over an hour from the house. The only museum we visited was the Toulouse-Latrec Museum in Albi, which was wonderful if you are a fan of his. Philippe left a list of the local market days and it is very easy to buy fresh produce, dairy products and prepared food. The roasted chicken was delicious! We hardly ate out, the market food was

superb and the house is so welcoming, it was nice to eat our meals there. Not to be missed is Euaze, a lovely city with the best local market we found. The central market in Biarritz was

wonderful, had everything you could possibly want or need. In an enclosed building in the center of town. Biarritz is only a 2 hr drive. We stayed there 2 days. Well worthwhile visiting if you love fresh seafood. Abbital Faget is the perfect place to relax and explore Gascony at your own pace. We hope to return for another visit soon.

Sommer- und Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine Woche bei Philippe. Die Einrichtung und Lage war wie im Internet beschrieben. Die Betten waren super bequem. Sateliten Empfang Englisch-Deutsche Programme. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort hin fahren. Das Domizil würden wir Freunden und Verwandten weiterempfehlen, da das Preis- Leistungsverhältnis r stimmt. Wir kommen wieder.

Rural retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Sensitive and artistic, cool minimalist renovation of a stone and wooden beamed annexe with own patio. Located in the midst of gentle valleys and woods, with butterflies, wild flowers, small scale arable fields and families of contented doe eyed cows with their young. Meander down empty roads and return to relax under a laden cherry tree whose juice induces sleep (New Scientist report).

A most relaxing and pleasant stay. And only an hour or so from Toulouse.

Owner's Response: Tourists who take time to live, who like the nature and who know how to appreciate(estimate) the simple moments of the life. The exchange was pleasant. I strongly recommend. Thank you again to have come in my haven of peace.

Erholung pur in schönem Rahmen!

  • 5 of 5

Ein geschmackvoll renoviertes Haus mit z.T. überdachter Terrasse in schöner Landschaft. Das Auge ruht sich aus, die Seele auch; das Departement Gers ist im besten Sinne 'ruhig' und erinnert ein wenig an die Toskana: Auf jedem Hügel ein Haus. Wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen; die Beschreibung war präzise - Wünsche blieben nicht offen. Sehr empfehlenswert!

Merveilleux séjour dans le Gers

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines inoubliables dans ce petit coin de paradis. La maison était propre et très fonctionnelle, le jardin tres bien entretenu et nos 2 petites chiennes ont pu se promener en toute liberté. Merci à Philippe de nous avoir fait découvrir des endroits que nous n'aurions jamais découverts par nous mêmes. Merci à Aline de nous avoir si bien accueillis, fait découvrir ses si bons produits gastronomiques et nous avoir entraînés dans de belles randonnées. Aline, on t'aime ❤️. Quant à Papy il restera à jamais dans notre cœur. Le seul bémol c'est que tout juillet 2018 est déjà loué. Amitiés

Owner's Response: Des vacanciers magiques, authentiques avec qui les échanges ont coulé de source. J'ai eu l'impression d'avoir chez moi de (vieux) amis que je n'avais pas vu depuis longtemps. Une belle rencontre partagée par mon papa et ma soeur. Lorsqu'on montera à paris, on viendra vous rendre visite, j'aurai l'occasion de vous présenter ma douce et tendre. Bises à vous deux. Philippe
