Chateau de Puissentut is a beautiful C12 chateau set in the heart of rolling Gascon countryside. Within easy reach of the pretty 'bastide' village of Monfort, with a boulangerie, shop, post office and restaurant, and only 10 minutes' drive to the local market town - this is an ideal place to enjoy the gentle pace of life in rural France.

Stylishly renovated, the main part of the chateau provides comfortable accommodation for up to 20 guests. Doors lead from a sheltered central courtyard into a large dining room. Adjoining this is a fully-equipped professional kitchen with access to the garden, and a secluded terrace.

Also in this part of the house is a substantial study (with wi-fi internet access), a single en-suite bedroom, and two separate w/cs. There are a further five doubles with en-suites on the ground floor, accessed directly from the gardens. The single bedroom, and one of the doubles (and their bathrooms) are wheelchair accessible - as is the ground floor of the house.

A sweeping staircase leads to the first floor and a light, airy living room (with tv, dvd and stereo). There are also four more en-suite double bedrooms on this level.

The original character of the building has been sensitively combined with modern decor and furnishings to create very comfortable, stylish accommodation. Several of the bedrooms can be arranged as doubles or twins, offering added flexibility for large groups. There is also a separate gite (with one double bedroom) that can be rented for an extra cost.

The pretty gardens at Puissentut have lovely views across the valley. With a swimming pool (10mx4m), and plenty of space for children to run around, this is the perfect place to relax in the heart of Gascony. And to help you make the most of your stay, the owners (who live in a separate part of the house) are on-hand to advise and assist you if required.

Local Attractions

• Gastronomy
Gascony is renowned for its gastronomic quality - from traditional regional specialities such as cassoulet, duck confit, and pâté de foie gras, to excellent local vin de pays and world-famous Armagnac. If you would like to learn how to cook these dishes yourself, we can willingly organise the lesson for you.

• Cruise the Canal du Midi or Canal de Garonne - just for a day!
Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the canal was originally built to serve as a short cut between the Atlantic and Mediterranean oceans in the late 17th Century. 240km in length, the canal is divided into the Canal du Midi, between Sete and Toulouse, and the Canal de Garonne between Toulouse and Bordeaux. You can hire a boat and boatman for a day, enjoy a leisurely lunch on board and experience the rare peace and tranquility of this ancient waterway.

• Cycling or walking
Our rolling landscape could have been designed for cycling and walking. While the scenery is easy on the eye, the gentle gradients are easy on the thighs. With options suitable for all levels of fitness, anyone and everyone who wishes, can get out and enjoy the countryside. Just ask us to point you towards the best routes near the house that you have rented.

• Horse Riding
If you are passionate about horses, you're in for a treat! The choice is excellent and the choice is yours - from riding lessons to guided treks on horseback. Or you can even rent a horse-drawn caravan and spend a day meandering along quiet country roads, pausing to enjoy a picnic or perhaps a spot of fishing.

• Accrobranche
For the more energetic among you, we can recommend an unforgettable afternoon in 300 acres of woodland at Accrobranche. Secured by ropes and guided by sure-handed professionals, you can release your inner Tarzan (or Jane) by swinging among the trees, crossing hanging bridges and negotiating obstacles suspended in mid-air. As the song says: Memories are made of this!

• Hot air balloon rides
Weather permitting, there is no better way to discover our beautiful countryside... Up, up and away, in our beautiful balloons - it certainly beats driving, any day!

• Water Sports
Wake-boarding, windsurfing, canoeing - all are readily available to you throughout the summer period. If you need lessons, they're available too. If you're already expert, we can point you to it - like ducks to water.

• Walibi water park in Agen
The Walibi Park has all the fun-filled rides and shows that your children could wish for - but with French style, including 'Splash Battle' and ' Radja River' plus some amazing performing seals. Your children are guaranteed an unforgettable day out!

• Fishing Lessons
Professional fishing tuition is on hand throughout your stay, particularly suitable for getting your children started in good company.

• Mini Golf
There are various mini golf courses around the area where the whole family can enjoy an afternoon or night out.

• Relaxation
Experience the natural thermal baths in Lectoure, or enjoy a family day in the Caliceo spa centre near Toulouse. If you prefer to be pampered in situ, we can arrange for a qualified beauty therapist and masseuse to visit you at the house for massage, manicure, and facials. Why not treat yourself - you're on holiday!

• Sport
Enjoy a round of golf at Fleurance, or play tennis on one of the courts near your house - either can be booked for a small fee. We can also arrange for private or group lessons with a professional coach. For competitive teenagers, go-karting and paintballing can also be arranged. In fact, as you would expect, most conventional leisure or sporting activities are available in Gascony, so if you have a particular request, please do not hesitate to ask us.

• General
To help you plan and so make the most of your time in Gascony, we are more than happy to provide you with up to date information on everything that's happening in the region - from jazz festivals to salsa events, from classical concerts to bandas, from wine and garlic festivals to car boot sales, from antique fairs to village fêtes and night markets. All you have to do is ask!
