    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    Coutin nestles in the glorious Gascon countryside - completely private yet only 5 minutes from one of the prettiest and liveliest towns in the Gers: Aignan-en-Armagnac. Though secluded, the house is accessed through a working farm so you can enjoy seeing the ducks, chickens and geese wandering around.

    This is a holiday base at the heart of probably the most rural department in France - one with a well-deserved reputation for good food, summer sunshine (temperatures can reach the upper 30s during July and August) and fantastic local wines to discover. Just 10 minutes away are the lakes of Aignan and Lupiac which offer sandy beaches, swimming under the supervision of lifeguards and small cafes.

    There are, of course, plentiful restaurants and casual cafes - often serving the duck dishes f...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Just returned from our second stay at Coutin. We travelled with our 3 children (7, 11 & 12) who all love it and asked to go back. The house itself is clean and tidy, French in a good way! It's best feature being the large, very well equipped modern kitchen. There are also modern, airy bathrooms in all of the bedrooms with plenty of towels and bedding. Apart from cooking and sleeping we spent most of our time outside and the terrace is great for eating out with plenty of seating & tables for a large group.

The outside space is very open but also private, safe for children to play or ride their bikes around (or hunt for gheckos in our case!). Plenty of space for 2 or 3 cars to park.
Any amenities need to be driven to due to the secluded location but this wasn't problem, the area directly around the house is great for walking and cycling as the roads are quiet and you are surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields. The owner leaves a comprehensive information...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed here for 2 weeks with 2 young children (3 and 6) and with in laws coming to stay at various times. The house is very well proportioned with fantastically sized bedrooms and well equipped kitchen - without mentioning the vast grounds surrounding the house.

It is very peaceful and quiet and perfect for spending the day relaxing and bbqs in the eveing. Nearby are villages and small towns that are very welcoming and whilst retaining their french authenticity we met a number of ex pats (dutch and english) who were great in providing hints and tips. With 15 mins drive there are two lakes with sandy beaches and one with water slides, cafes, tree walking and other activities for both kids and adults - these were perfect for the children and immature adults!!

Overall, a great place to stay and incredibly relaxing - a place to get away from it all and enjoyed by all the family - 'the best holiday ever' - according to the kids.
