Welcome at Gimbrin

Welcome to the website of Gimbrin, a small paradise in South West France in the heart of Gascony, a region in the Midi-Pyrenees known as the French Tuscany. Here you will find serenity, space, and an age-old history. It is an ideal area for cyclists and walkers. Many pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela pass this area. In the evening you can see the sun sets under marvelous colours: orange, red, pink and sometimes deep purple. Do you like starry skies, here they are, with myriads of stars. The Gers is not yet discovered by mass tourism. Authentic, rustic and idyllic. Experience a timeless feeling. It is a delight for your senses.

We offer

  • Two lodgings in an old stone farmhouse, respectively for 2-3 or 4-5 people
  • An apartment with separate entrance for 2 people on the first floor of our modern house

The old stone farmhouse was once a ruin and was completely rebuilt in the old style in 2000, with lots of character. The farm has two parts, completely separated. In one part is the big cottage, 70 m2, for 4-5 people, overlooking the village of Cézan, in the other part the small cottage, 40 m2 for 2-3 people, overlooking the front garden and the fiels around. gîtes are located in a former stone farm house. It was nothing more than a ruin but in 2000 the farm house has been completely rebuilt in old style and therefore keeping its character. The farm house consists of two parts. One part accommodates the large gîte - 70m² for 4-6 persons. In the other part you will find the small gîte - 40m² for 2-3 persons. Both cottages have a private entrance and a private terrace and a site around. So there is a great sense of privacy. The whole area is 10 acres.

We ourselves live in a modern country house, built in 2002, in the style of the region, a Gascon.

On our website you will find more detailed information about the region, the cottages and the apartment. There is current information on availability and prices. If you have any questions you are welcome to contact us any time!

Location and surroundings

Gimbrin is at the end of a country road in the fortified village of Cézan, in the Midi Pyrenees, in the Gers, between the Dordogne and the rugged Pyrenees, between Bordeaux and Toulouse. Surrounded by fields of sunflowers, rapeseed, wheat and corn and the vineyards which are there for the famous Armagnac. Rolling hills with scenic views and on a clear day the highest peaks of the Pyrenees. A true feast for the eyes.

It is the land of D'Artagnan and the three musketeers. There are around many medieval villages: Fourcès, Laressingle and Montréal du Gers, to name a few. You can get your fill of castles, cathedrals, monasteries, abbeys and excavations of ancient Roman villas as in Séviac. In the castle of Lavardens (7 km) are regular exhibitions of high-profile artists. The Abbey of Flarans (12 km) is a "territory of the culture". The classic summer concerts 'Les Nuits Musicales en Armagnac' take place here. In the Gers are many museums, cultural and music festivals. The most famous festival is the JIM - Jazz in Marciac. Really all the big jazz celebreties of the world play each year the stars of heaven.
