Looking ahead to Spring in Gascony (from April to June), we’ve got three Special Offers to tempt you to visit this beautiful part of France at a lovely time of year. And all three are close enough to the Pyrenees for you to include a trip up into the high mountains famous for their fields of wildflowers. For this Spring period we can offer you up to a 20% discount on normal rents.
Our latest Special Offer is Chateau Pélat (sleeps 12)

Chateau Pélat is one of the most fascinating properties we represent – historic, romantic, comfortable, and civilised, with swimming pool, tennis court, dining terraces and wide grass areas bordered by shady old trees…perfect for a large family or group of friends.
The property has stunning views that extend across the rolling hills of Gascony as far as the Pyrenees mountains to the South. The house and connected buildings are beautifully sited around a large walled garden with lawns and trees, offering lots of sitting areas in sun and shade. On the far side of the garden from the house, stone steps wind down to the pool and tennis court, both well sited on a lower, sheltered terrace.
The 40 acres of grounds include places for eating, drinks, games, walks, sitting and reading – or simply enjoying the fabulous views. Pélat has its own vineyard, and you will have an opportunity to taste the wine of ‘Chateau Pélat’ – another way for you to enjoy this truly wonderful and unique country house in Gascony.
This is a rare opportunity to enjoy a relaxing Spring holiday in beautiful, healthy Gascony, when the weather can be pleasantly warm, and the wildflowers are showing everywhere.
And our other two current Special Offer properties are:
Chateau Puissentut (sleeps 20)
Out of season and away from the tourist months, spring in Gascony offers a unique chance to see this beautiful and unspoilt area of Southwest France when it’s at its best. Wonderful countryside, low air pollution and population density, plenty of pretty market towns and history, and not to mention the mouth-watering selection of local wine and food.
Puissentut is an ancient Chateau presented today with modern comfort, warmth and style. Puissentut sleeps 20 in the main house and 4 in a separate cottage. With a professional kitchen, chef available, a range of catering options, large dining-room, warm fires, living room/library and a large Games Room, bikes and great local walks what more could you want for a wonderful holiday?
Cap de Montaulieu (sleeps 12)
This elegant 18th century country house sleeps 12 in great comfort. The house is available for long periods until 31 March 2022, and for shorter breaks after that.
In March/early April the Pyrenees ski are still open and we’ve got great snow this year. Cap de Montaulieu is about two hours driving time to the main ski resorts, so it is easy to combine a holiday in Gascony with a few days skiing in the Pyrenees.
