Le Pastoureau


Le Pastoureau
(The Shepherd)

Large holiday home sleeping 12 - Gers, South West France

The house is a traditional Gers farmhouse, circa 1760, surrounded by fields and lying in a secluded, peaceful valley with narrow lanes, steep hills and spectacular views.

Enjoying more than an acre of lawn, it is blessed with a wealth of shade-giving trees that flower and fruit abundantly. There are walnuts, almonds, figs, quince, apricots and cherries, colourful dry gravel gardens and a profusion of lavender, rosemary and thyme.

The property was bought in 2019 by Tim and Francie Readman as a holiday home for their family and friends and a warmer place to spend some of the colder northern months.

Le Pastoureau has a large, unheated pool (12m x 6m)

Three separate places to eat outside: lunch under the (non-fruiting) Mulberry tree

Under the pergola opposite the kitchen:

or dinner in the cool of the North terrace:

Guest Comments

"I felt very privileged to be your first guest at Le P. I was amazed how beautiful and tranquil it was, and I make no apology that we were not very adventurous. The weather was great, happy to be in a car only on the cooler day and while the pool may be heating up this week, I suspect it may be a little warm for me this week!"

"Nobody in my family had been to that part of France before (we have done other parts of the south) but we really fell in love with it. The house is in such a beautiful position – you can’t help but relax.
We’ve had the most amazing week thank you - the house is beautiful and the children have loved the pool and playing hide and seek outside!! The beds are so comfortable too!"

"A short and sweet stay at Le Pastoureau, if only I could have stayed longer! A beautifully designed home, stunning countryside and can’t wait to go back to be surrounded by sunflowers, the chorus of frogs, hoots from the night owls with a glass of vino in hand"

"Le Pastoureau is set is idyllic tranquil countryside with barely a discernible noise other than nature to disturb you. The house is incredibly well equipped from the dining room to thoughtful converter plugs throughout. Comfort is key to this wonderful house - deep sofa’s to sink into with a good book and the beds and linen that give you the chance to properly relax and have a truly restorative sleep….for me, it was some of the best sleep in years!

Great wi-fi keeps everyone very happy, but the pool is the jewel in the crown: a really decent size and temperature for everyone to enjoy all day long …and enough space for the squeals of games and delight not to disturb anyone else!

The only problem we encountered was that the bread from the local boulangerie left us with a serious addiction by the end of our stay! We have no hesitation in recommending Le Pastoureau for a family holiday or gathering of friends and cannot wait to return ourselves."
