Are you thinking about moving to France? And you do not want to be bothered by old houses that need a lot of work, but want to build something beautiful, new, comfortable, spacious and bright. And you are looking for a #mild climate with a lovely, sunny summer and a not too cold winter. A region where, though they are not original, palm trees and banana plants grow in the gardens. An area where it is quite, where nature is alive and abundant: sunflower fields, wheat, oak tree forests mingle and dance together making the landscape always different in colours, changing every season.
Do you want to have all the benefits of a quiet area and living in the country but at the same time not to be too far away from ‘civilisation’? Auch, the capital of the region, Le Gers with all the charm of an authentic, small French town, is only 12 km away. You can find everything you need there: a charming old historic town, bars and restaurants and all kind of shops, supermarkets, hospital, pharmacies.
The land is almost 4.000 m2 of which over 1800 m2 are useful for construction. It is part of a small urbanisation with about six new villas and some old farmhouses, one refurbished, some in ruins. The orientation of the land is a bit turned away from the small road, and it is on a slope. Some real old, enormous oak trees form a natural separation from the little path that goes down to the old farmhouse. Younger trees are growing now on the plot and will give you a good start of beautiful, slow-burning wood for your new fireplace. The part that is for construction is flat, but then the plot is following a slope which makes it ideal for a terraced garden with different levels for different uses: sunbathing, swimming pool, vegetable garden, flowers, wood. It sure has a lot of possibilities to have a beautiful house and beautiful garden here.
And when you get bored of your garden and the quiet surroundings, there is a lot to explore: Toulouse, Tarbes, Agen, Carcassonne, Albi, Foix are all cities suitable for an excellent excursion and not too far away. There are several nice typical ‘village Gascon’ nearby. Also several golf fields, ski resorts are at only 150 km. The Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Mediterranean Sea, are both only 250 km away.
