Aignan, Gers, Occitanie
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 for which the region is famous. You'll be pleas...

About the neighborhood
First capital of l' Armagnac, Aignan was founded around 620 and later became one of the fortified towns (or bastides) which can be found across Gascony. Plundered and set fire to in 1355 by the Black Prince, the Romantic church of St Saturnin remains, together with others (Lartigue, Fromentas) which have now fallen out of use but still exist as picturesque ruins.

This small town of fewer than 1,000 offers all the necessary services: an excellent baker, mini-supermarket, a cafe, two restaurants, post office & chemist together with several antique shops, one of which is also a tea room. There is a lively social scene in Aignan in which visitors are always very welcome to participate with fairs, communal meals - great fun! - and other events.
