Description from the manager
If youâ€™re looking for a chateau that offers top notch boutique-style accommodation with second-to-none service youâ€™re in the right place. Discover the Gers in South West France, from a base that is as peaceful as it is stunning, whilst not far from the Spanish Basque country and Atlantic coast, Bordeaux, Toulouse and the glorious Pyrenees. Chateau Petit is a stunning and stylishly renovated chateau, with every home comfort you could ask for. The chateau demonstrates the perfect marriage of grandeur with homeliness and modernity with tradition. Dating back to the middle ages, it has a long and interesting history and has been re-born by i...ts current owners. Kate and Stephen are quite simply your dream hosts, bending over backwards to make sure you have everything you could want for a great holiday. Daily breakfast and maid service is included in the rental price. The local area is one of the jewels in the crown of South West France - the Gers. The Gers is where people live longer, where life is slow and enjoys a quality that will take your breath away the first time you visit. Come and enjoy the wine, the food and the welcome. A stay at Chateau Petit will introduce you to or re-acquaint you with a France you thought had disappeared decades ago.
