The Studio's separate bedroom sleeps two comfortably. The tastefully tiled bathroom contains double basins, shower, wc and heated towel rail. A living area accommodates two comfortably, with a well-equipped kitchenette and eating area. Folding glazed doors open onto a tiled patio, making a very useful and attractive outdoor area for alfresco dining.

The space
The Studio 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.

Where you’ll be

Condom, Occitanie, France

Leave the apartment by its secure private gate and you are at once in the typically Gascon town of Condom - rich in history, ancient buildings, museums and Roman artefacts. It is dominated by the magnificent cathedral of Saint-Pierre and dissected by the River Baîse, still with the quays once used to load barges with Armagnac brandy en route to Bordeaux. Restaurants and cafes abound to suit all tastes and pockets. Good shops and a twice-weekly market are very close by for all self-catering needs.

Just outside the town lies the beautiful countryside of The Gers - the very heart of Gascony. No suburbs, no industry, just gently rolling, well farmed fields and woodland interspersed with Bastide villages, fortified towns, ancient religious buildings, Chateaux and Gallo-Roman sites. They are all there to be savoured and enjoyed by those with an interest in history and a love and appreciation of countryside, culture, architecture, good eating and, above all, a joie de vivre!

Having retired from my Veterinary Practice in Southern England, my wife and I decided to move to a warmer, less frenetic France - taking our two dogs but leaving behind two independent sons. Many visits, much research and thousands of kilometers later we bought and moved into a large, 17th century house in the centre of the small town of Condom in the Gers - the very heart of Gascony - midway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Since 2007 we have renovated the house, and established within its walls three apartments for rental as holiday accommodation. Although used to country life in England, we now appreciate the convenience of living in this small town with all shops and amenities a short walk away but, above all, we love the French way of life. Our lives, becoming accustomed to the slow, laid-back life of rural France, revolve around enjoying the surrounding magnificent countryside, visiting ancient villages and towns steeped in history (usually bloody), gardening, dog walking, following cricket and rugby and entertaining family and friends in this idyllic situation with its continental climate. A perfect retirement!
