Welcoming guests since April 2017

In response to Covid-19 we have put in place additional measures for the safety and well being of our guests

Chris and Mike in the garden with HugoWe bought our first house in the Gers department of France in June 2006, having really loved the countryside and relaxed way of life we experienced during a visit to family in the area earlier that year. We visited our holiday house regularly during school vacations and many happy summers were spent in the Gers. Whilst on holiday in August 2015, we visited the Château de Pléhaut which we finally moved into permanently with our large Labradoodle, Hugo, in September 2016. Having lived and worked in Manchester, UK for the previous 30+ years, we continue to enjoy the peace and quiet of Pléhaut and discovering the local villages, music festivals, markets and wide open spaces of the Gers!

We have really enjoyed meeting visitors from across the world since opening to guests in 2017. We live on the first floor of the château and offer self-catering holidays on the second floor of the château or in the gite by the pool. All guests are welcome to enjoy the gardens, first floor terrace, swimming pool and 12 acres of woodland, bordered by the River Baïse, open farmland and a disused railway embankment which is home to red squirrels, deer, badgers and over 60 different species of birds.

Please do contact us directly with any questions and to book at our best prices, we try to be as flexible as we can to meet the needs of our guests.

We have consistently received excellent reviews and look forward to welcoming guests over the years to come.

Best Wishes

Chris and Mike
