Fantastic holiday in a lovely gite!
Our family (including a 9 year old and 6 year old) have just returned from a 2 week stay at Au Roux. We enjoyed our stay enormously! Jane and Geoff are fantastic hosts who made us feel very welcome and were always on hand for recommendations of places to visit and things to see.
The gardens at Au Roux are absolutely beautiful, with lots of room for lively children and the the added bonus of the pool to cool down in, which is very well kept.
We particularly enjoyed eating in the barn in the evenings with its views across the fields to the hills and the Pyrenees in the very distance.
On a practical note there are a choice of supermarkets within a 10 minute drive or a bit further into Auch (approximately a 20 minute drive) for a slightly wider choice
We would highly recommend Au Roux and plan on returning at some point in the future.
Everything about our stay was fantastic. We were greeted as we arrived by our friendly host (Jane) and shown around the lovely gite. The gite is very nice, and was perfect for our family. The pool was lovely too, and our two boys spend as much time in it as possible!
We loved the area, and explored caves, and a zoo on a day trip towards the pyrenees, delightful market towns nearby, and some of the wine and armagnac areas also close by. Auch is the nearest town, and Tolouse the nearest city, and both were good to visit.
In all, lovely gite, very friendly and helpful owners, and really nice part of France.
Our hosts, Jane & Geoff were lovely people and their Gite is probably the best we have stayed in (and there are many). We cannot recommend Au Roux highly enough.
Beautiful gite in the countryside
We really enjoyed staying at Jane & Geoff's lovely home in the most glorious countryside. The gite was very well equipped with plenty of space for our family, 4 different eating areas, including the barn packed full of so many different outdoor games, barbeque etc. Great for a fun-filled evening! The pool area and well maintained garden were fabulous. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to be, when the weather is good and you have enough food and drink you wouldn't want to be anywhere else! Shall hope to return.
Beautiful gite with friendly helpful owners
We had a first class stay and nothing was too much trouble for Geoff and Jane.
Thank you all for being such lovely guests enjoying everything at Au Roux.
Fabulous location and gite with very accommodating hosts
Geoff and Jane were fabulous hosts, catering to our every need and were so helpful.
The gite worked perfectly for us ( parents + 1 child) and it was equipped with everything.
The pool right outside the french windows was great and the separate barn with table tennis etc was a joy. Very quiet location but close enough to Auch etc. ( I think the pictures do not do the house justice as the gardens are beautifully maintained)
Loved having you as our first 2017 guests, so glad you had a great family weekend.
The Gers offers something for everyone. At the heart of Gascony, famous for its foie-gras and Armagnac, it is an excellent centre from which to explore the beautiful countryside, historic towns and mountains. There are ancient villages with weekly markets selling local produce, bric-a-brac sales and summer night markets. Au Roux, on the outskirts of the little village Clermont Pouyguilles, is set in a large open valley with views to the snowy peaks of the Pyrenees and the surrounding rolling hillside is full of maize and sunflower fields. Auch, the capital of the Gers and the historical capital of Gascony is just 20 minutes away. Toulouse and Pau with their shopping centres, museums, art galleries and restaurants are always worth a visit. The Gers is also a region of music lovers and hosts a number of festivals including the famous Marciac Jazz Festival, a two week event in August and Mirande's Country Festival in July.
