Bijou Cottage in Gers, a cottage in Midi-Pyrénées: Swimming Pool

Renovated Barn with Swimming Pool Set In Beautiful Countryside

Bijou cottage is a renovated barn situated amongst 3 acres of land next to the owners cottage.
The adjoining paddocks still have an abundance of fruit trees , During the summer months the fields surrounding the cottage will often be a sea of vibrant yellow from sunflowers, which are synonymous with the area and are truly spectacular.
The cottage has retained its old French charm but offers comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people. It is a short walk across the field to the village of Miradoux which attracts many visitors during the summer. The cottage is a stones throw from the Santiago de Compostella pilgrimage trail
attracting thousands of walkers as they pass through on the way to northern Spain.

Our names are Michael & Nigel and have been living in Miradoux, Gers in the Midi-Pyrenees's since September 2014. We moved to France looking for a complete change of lifestyle along with our 2 dogs who have now been joined by, 6 sheep and loads of chicken
Michael was an account manager for a major catering supply company. Nigel worked in the NHS as a Ward manager, Macmillan Nurse and latterly as a Matron.
We chose to buy a house in the Gers because we fell in love with the wonderful countryside and the numerous medieval bastide villages which are renowned for there beauty and quintessential style.
We'd been searching for a characterful rustic property with land for quite awhile, but, as we approached the house for the first time in April 2014 we both knew that our search was over
Although it's a cliché, we both feel that we are now living the dream and
look forward to sharing a little of our new life with our guests.

In addition its now a pleasure to welcome returning guests for a second holiday as they have obviously enjoyed the area and lifestyle as much as we do,
Where we live is very rural, and little English spoken (we think a definite plus and one of the main reasons for coming here) it is however accessible to
both large and small towns with excellent and varied shops/facilities.

The cottage is perfect for guests that just want to get away and relax in the
middle of the French countryside and indulge in your favourite pastime's ( if it was me, a glass of red wine and a good book). However, if you're feeling energetic there are lovely walking trails crisscrossing the surrounding hills. If your after busy nightlife then it won't be for you.
Although its always peaceful at our place, even during the summer months, there are endless things to enjoy and places to explore.
Within a 20 minute driving radius there are innumerable small towns with
local and artisan markets and at the other extreme you find very large town shopping malls with a huge variety of shops and restaurant's.
in July & August nearby towns have open air swimming pools and swiming lakes
