Welcome to Bouchon!

Bouchon is a wonderfully tranquil and characterful former farm estate surrounded by the beautiful Gascon countryside. Despite its privacy, it is still close to a number of historic Gascon towns and villages with markets and family-friendly restaurants.

Bouchon has two separate houses, Bouchon Haut and Bouchon Bas. These houses, which can be rented together or separately, offer complete privacy from each other whilst also providing the perfect accommodation for two families renting together.

The houses sit in over eight acres (three hectares) of grounds which include a large barn, an orchard, woods, a large swimming pool, a picturesque ruin and adjoin a river.

“We had a wonderful time. You have a very special place there. Hopefully we can return and perhaps try Bouchon Haut next time. The kids loved the swimming pool and playing badminton too!”

“Bouchon is a beautiful farmhouse in a glorious setting. We enjoyed the most wonderful week exploring nearby villages and towns, night markets and brocantes (all off the beaten tourist track). The house is beautifully decorated and has everything one could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. Lovely landscaped gardens, outdoor space and activities in […]

“Hi Nick just wanted to say thank you. You have the most stunning home. We have had such a relaxing time. There is not one thing that we could have asked for to make our stay any better. Really don’t want to go home. “

Jo , England, May 2018

“Thank you for a wonderful stay at your very special home. We were delighted by how quiet it was, the ample outside space and of course the magnificent views of the countryside. The house was extremely comfortable; you have thought of everything, giving it the feel of a home-from-home, rather than a holiday let. Really, […]

“There are not enough superlatives to describe Bouchon Haut. Approached by a long, winding drive, through fields of wheat and sunflowers, Bouchon Haut is surrounded by beautiful gardens filled with lavender. The house is exquisite, the character of the stunning stone building, has been perfectly enhanced by an enticing mixture of antique furniture, sumptuous fabrics […]

Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances dans le gîte de BOUCHON BAS. Nous sommes une famille avec des enfants et nous avons adoré séjourner dans cette maison très confortable décorée avec goût, au mileu de la nature.Chaque chambre est spatieuse et équipée d’une salle de bains, l’espace à vivre est très agréable; et les extérieurs […]

“Lovely mellow stone buildings, a beautifully kept garden full of lavender and bees and a swimming pool in fields of sunflowers. Perfect for two families as you share this generous space. Shops, restaurants and castles are all a drive away through a painterly landscape. We loved it. “

Jane – London, United Kingdom July 2016

“Idyllic retreat.We were lucky enough to stay as part of a large family group at Bouchon Bas and Bouchon Haut during the summer. What a treat! Surrounded by beautiful sunflower fields, Bouchon is sufficiently remote that you feel you have escaped from the real world but close enough to amazing attractions, sights and food markets […]

“This place is absolutely amazing and I never wanted to leave. From the moment you drive down the sweeping driveway and see Bouchon’s caramel stone walls nestline in the stunning view you know you are somewhere very special. The place is huge and has been decorated with impeccable taste and style. There are spaces everywhere […]

“Je cherchais une belle maison pour passer une semaine en famille. Les deux maisons du Bouchon ont été un choix idéal. Chaque maison possède trois chambres, et de vastes espaces de vie, salons, terrasses, grandes cuisines, le tout parfaitement décoré et équipé avec goût. L’extérieur est remarquablement entretenu, soigné, et les lavandes donnent un petit […]

“We had a really lovely time. Both properties are beautiful and we loved the area and all the local produce.You have done a really great job with the place and the pool is spectacular.”

Bouchon Haut

Bouchon Haut is the main house. Downstairs, there is a large well equipped kitchen which leads (via a utility room with a downstairs WC) to a covered terrace which overlooks a large part of the grounds and is a lovely place to spend time with friends and family and watch the sunset over a glass or two of the local wine.

The downstairs also includes a large, more formal, dining room and a cosy “winter” sitting room and a “summer” sitting room with large double doors opening out onto a South-West facing terrace.

Upstairs there are two en-suite double bedrooms (both including larger than normal double beds), and a twin bedroom together with a separate “family” shower room and WC. There is also a study area upstairs with a laptop connected to the internet. Wifi is available throughout most of the house.

The grounds include a large pool (12x6m) which is shared between Bouchon Haut and Bouchon Bas.

Bouchon Bas

Bouchon Bas is the second house on the estate. The downstairs is mainly open plan, with a very large sitting room (and wood burner) which moves into a dining area and then round to the kitchen area. There is also a separate twin room and linked shower room/WC on the ground floor.

Upstairs you will find two well appointed en-suite double rooms.

The grounds include a pool (12x6m) which is shared between Bouchon Haut and Bouchon Bas.

In the  barn beside the house there are various family games (boules, badminton, footballs). If you combine a holiday with Bouchon Haut, there are also, at Bouchon Haut, a table tennis table, large trampoline and mountain bikes.

There is also a DVD selection (with a 32 inch LCD tv and bluray player) . On the music side, there is a mini-hifi system. Please note that there is no wifi at Bouchon Bas.
