WHERE AND HOW TO GET THERE
Blancotte lies in the Aquitaine region, on the border of the departments of Gers and Lot-et-Garonne. Bordeaux and Toulouse with international airports (also served by Easyjet) are both a 150 km away. Ryanair and City Jet have flights to Pau (125 km) and the airport of Bergerac (140 km) is served by Ryanair and Transavia.
The TGV and other trains will take you to the train station of Agen (50 km).
The Blancotte property: three 18th and 19th century farm buildings with a beautiful ‘pigeonier’ in three acres of park and extended garden with 300 year old oak trees, roses of all sorts and colours, shrubs of rosemary and fig trees. Around the property one finds fields of wheat, sunflowers and vineyards, making for a stunning view. Bird and wildlife are abundant.
The main house offers a large living/dining space; a billiard/games room; a very well equipped kitchen with pantry; a dormitory with 8 beds and 6 separate bedrooms sharing 4 bathrooms. One finds a large terrace with comfortable deckchairs around a swimming pool of 6 x12 m and a half open barn for al fresco lunches and dinners in between the main house and the cottage. The smaller house features an open (fully equipped) kitchen and dining area; a living room with Internet connection and a large screen TV (British and Dutch satellite); 3 bedrooms, one with its own full bathroom, the other 2 sharing the second bathroom. The third house is permanently occupied.
Blancotte, comfortably accommodating 20, is a great holiday rental for an extended family or a group of friends. We’ve had families celebrating the 70th birthday of the pater familias, reunions of friends getting together from all parts of the world and weddings.
