Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Condom, Gers, Occitanie
La Cathedrale apartment is within the grand house of Hôtel de Gensac. Built around 1735 this 'hôtel particulier' (private mansion) is one of the historic and architecturally important houses of the town. During the Hundred Years' War, King Edward III installed his son as the administrator of this region of France. Known later by the sobriquet 'The Black Prince', the ruins of his palace chapel still remain as part of the mansion's fabric, helping to warrant its inclusion on one of the town's historic-sites walks.

This large apartment (130m2) is on the first floor and is spacious enough for permanent occupancy sleeping six comfortably. Both bedrooms are equally large and airy with east facing windows overlooking the gardens. Bedroom one has a large double bed and an en suite WC and basin. The other has two small...

About the neighborhood
The town name 'Condom' is derived from 'Condatomagus', meaning 'old gallic market'. Condom lies on the river BaIse along one of the main pilgrimage routes of Saint Jacques de Compostelle. Because of its location on the riverbanks of the Baise, in the 19th century Condom became the capitol of the Ténarèze region and the access gate to the Armagnac. The river Baise is nowadays still very well suited for all kinds of boating trips. At the Capitainerie in the small harbour you can even rent a boat yourself. Canoeing excursions can be booked a little bit further upstream in Beaucaire.
