Why’s it’s time to raise a glass in the amazing Armagnac region
If you fancy taking a trip to the wonderful Gers region of southwest France there’s no better to go than between now and January, when it’s seriously all about the Armagnac – distilling it, celebrating it, drinking it, and much more. Take time out to sample some of the vintage properties of the region too…
For a soupcon over £200k, this is a beautiful six-bedroom village house, oozing character with its sky-blue shutters, exposed beams and colombages. Handy for all the requisite village amenities.
In a beautiful medieval bastide village in Bas Armagnac, this is a pretty three-bedroom ancient coach house property – at a great price.
Striking Basco-Landes style maison de maitre that has a touch of chalet about it. Located in St Jystin, another bastide town, it comes with four bedrooms.
This six-bedroom Landais style property enjoys views towards the Pyrenees and sits in a lovely garden. Comes with ancient bread oven, orchard, well and vegetable garden.
