Au Balenti is an extremely spacious country Farmhouse with private grounds and pool. Perfect for large families and friends to holiday together or to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

About the neighborhood
In a tranquil setting, on the edge of the small village of Lascazeres, Au Balenti lies in the heart of the historic region of Gascony. At the crossroads of the Haute Pyrenees and Les Gers: France's secret garden, with its gently rolling landscape and fields overflowing with sunflowers, maize and vineyards. Gascony's appeal is the generous amount of sunshine, warm summers with long evenings and sublime weather stretching well into November. It is truly a gourmet's paradise, deservedly famous for its foie gras, confit and magrets. Fresh produce from the local farms are freely available at the weekly markets in Plaisance du Gers, Vic en Bigorre and Maubourguet.
Getting around
The most convenient way to see the local sights would be by car otherwise, guests are welcome to use any of the various bikes provided.
