Gondrin, Gers, Occitanie
Barrusclet is set within its own 40 acres which is a mixture of garden, farmland (mostly hayfields) and oak woodland. The natural world is truly on the doorstep, and we regularly see deer, red squirrels, birds of prey, owls, bats, a huge variety of insect life, lizards, wild flowers and so it goes on. Our nearest neighbours grow vines and sunflowers, make hay, and keep a few lovely creamy cows that meander about in the distance. It all makes for a constantly changing and charming landscape, which remains interesting whatever the season. This really is an amazingly private and idyllic place to be. An evening BBQ beneath the stars, or a lazy lunch under the shade of our beautiful magnolia tree are perfect ways to relax on your holiday. Plenty of garden chairs and tables are available for you to use, as well as a hammock to lie back and d... Read more

About the neighbourhood
Barrusclet is situated down a long track off a quiet country road. We are 3km from the village of Gondrin. Here you will find two boulangeries, a small supermarket, tabac, pharmacy, doctors, tourist information etc., everything you need for a self-catering holiday. There is also a small hotel and bar, and the largest outdoor manmade swimming lake in France. This area is great for families, with slides, inflatables, table tennis, tennis courts, children’s play area, and plenty of grassed area for sunbathing and picnics. Gondrin has a small Sunday market selling local fresh produce.

A 2 minute drive, or short cycle ride in the other direction brings us to the tiny hamlet of Lauraet. We hold a key to the immaculate, yet barely used tennis court, which is overlooked by the pretty villag...

How to get there
Airport: Toulouse: 100.0 km
Railway: Agen: 56.0 km
Ferry: Santander: 415.0 km
There are five main airports within 2 hours drive.
We always use either Bordeaux or Toulouse with Easyjet from Bristol or Luton, or Flybe from Birmingham. Bordeaux and Toulouse are good airports with all the main car hire operators available. The other airports are Pau and Bergerac, and a bit further away is Biarritz. You could also look at Ryanair, BMIBaby, British Airways and Air France for flights.
Use the chunnel or ferry to cross to Calais. By car the drive from Calais is approximately 10 hours.
Obviously this can vary enormously depending on who is driving.
Crossing to St. Malo or Caen reduces the drive time to 6 or 7 hours but increases the time on the Ferry. Also long crossings down to Bilbao and Santander in Spain are an alternative and would leave a drive time of 3 to 4 hours....
