19th century charm, 21st century comfort
“Michouat” is the name of our property here just outside the village of Vidou, about 2km from the little Gascony Bastide town of Trie-sur-Baïse. Built in the 1880s, Michouat is a traditional L-shaped Gascony farmhouse, with the family living in one side and the livestock and winter stores in the other. It remained a working farm until the end of the 1990’s when the land was sold off and the barn side of the property was tastefully converted into a Pyrenees holiday gîte.
• The Living Room
With its solid oak beams, Michouat’s Living Room is warm and cosy. There are comfy armchairs and a sofa for you and your company to relax in, read a book, watch DVDs (provided) or catch up on your favourite (UK/French) TV programs and, of course, there’s free WiFi throughout the property. There’s a period wood-burning stove to take the edge off any out-of-season evening or early morning chill.
• The Kitchen / Dining Room
The Kitchen / Diner includes seating and all modern conveniences to keep a family of four fed and watered during your stay: gas cooker/oven, microwave, coffee machine, kettle, fridge/freezer etc. In addition there’s an iron, ironing board, and the washing line’s just outside (but there’s always the drying rack in the bathroom)!
• The Outside Dining Table
During the summer you can take your meals outside on the patio in the shade of the parasol, and it’s also perfect for watching the sun go down on a lovely summer’s day in Gascony.
• The Bathroom
Before you head up the stairs, there’s the Bathroom, comprising a modern fitted shower unit, washing facilities and WC.
The Double Bedroom
The Double Bedroom includes a king size double bed. All bedding is provided. There is a private en-suite WC with wash basin. The room also includes an electric storage heater.
• The Twin Bedroom
The Twin bed room includes two single beds that can be put together if desired. All bedding is provided. There is a private en-suite WC with wash basin. The room also includes an electric storage heater.
• The Swimming Pool
Cool off in our 10 x 5 meter, fully-enclosed swimming pool or top up your sun tan on one of our comfortable pool-side sun loungers. The pool is cleaned daily. Pool rules for the safety and security of our guests.
• The 6-Person Hot Tub
Our Solana Quattro 6-Person Hot Tub – designed and engineered to provide total comfort to you and your friends/family. You can comfortably enjoy the ultimate foot massage with the people who matter most to you! Variable water jets, waterproof bluetooth music system, what better way to finish off the day?
• Relaxation and Games
As well as sun loungers you can let it all hang out whilst snoozing in our rather hedonistic hammock! And for those who who still have some energy left over we have a stock of traditional board games and of course our ever-popular table-tennis table (in the shade of course!)
