Susan and Yannick Rousseau purchased this House in 2018
Why Susan and Yannick Rousseau chose Bezolles
We searched for our home in Gascony for years, Yannick was born and raised in the nearby citadel of Lectoure and his family lives nearby. When we visited this property (built in 1821) even though it was February and raining, we loved the huge fireplace with cozy wood-burning stove, the 5-star bed linens and privacy. The property has so many features with stone buildings, gardens, the stunning views of the countryside across the pool... The nearness to wildlife brings harmony and quietude into focus while the teeming village of Castera Verduzan is a 7 minute drive away.
What makes this House unique
Aside from the many logistical benefits mentioned, we fell in love with the ancient beauty of this old stone farmhouse and its magnificent sunsets in a secluded setting. Each day a different sky and stunning scene. Even when raining it is alive with beauty and magic. The original fireplace has the opening of wood-burning oven where people of the hamlet came to bake their bread. My favorite is the original 3-story staircase with gorgeous, worn steps. The huge wooden door still hangs and opens out onto a private park, yours to walk, play, or lounge. The bees hum, the birds thrive, the owls and osprey live high in the trees. Lavender and roses surrounding the house are there for your pleasure and enjoyment. If it is country, bucolic living you want, you've found your paradise.

Charming French Countryside Retreat
This lovely farmhouse was the perfect escape for me from the bustle of my Paris adventure. The setting is idyllic, extremely private and quiet. It really was like my own private retreat amongst the sunflower fields, birds and scattered farms dotting the countryside. The house was comfortable and charming. I could take a stroll, lounge by the pool or bike around the area to appreciate the beauty.The entire property just invites one to relax and take in the surrounding vistas. There is a small village 10 minutes by car to get supplies or dine out.
This is the ideal family or friend vacation home for those looking to get away and reconnect with loved ones. I will definitely be back again when the sunflowers are in full bloom to witness how glorious that must be!
Dear Michelle, We are so glad our little 'peace' of Gascony could offer up a respite and be the healing salve you needed. Come again anytime. Sunflowers bloom from end of June to mid-August. July is their brilliant zenith!
Perfect rest and relaxation!
Stayed here for the whole of the month of September. Blessed with perfect weather we loved the beautiful well maintained pool, the excellent comfortable gite and the peace and tranquillity. Wonderful stars at night, a lovely view across the valley and many an hour spent watching the birds of prey circling above. This all within a 5 minute drive of Castera Verduzan ( try Le Florida restaurant for a great gourmet experience! ) with well stocked small supermarket, boulangerie and excellent butcher. Lots of historical villages to explore all within half an hour's drive. The perfect holiday all round!
Thank you, Keith. We are delighted to know you enjoyed your month in the Gers at L’Ancienne Boulangerie. We hope to see you again soon!
Un séjour parfait
Nous avons passé deux semaines merveilleuses, au coeur de la nature, dans une maison très agréable. Le vaste jardin est superbe, et les environs ravissants. Nous avons vécu dehors entre jardin et piscine, à admirer les coteaux avoisinants, notamment le soir au coucher du soleil. Nos enfants ont adoré la piscine, les jeux dans le jardin et faire du vélo sur les petites routes aux alentours de la maison. L'accueil de Susan et Yannick est particulièrement chaleureux, avec une présence discrète. Beaucoup de petites attentions dans la maison où l'on se sent bien immédiatement. Une très agréable base pour découvrir la belle région du Gers et ses merveilles.
On se sent comme chez soi dans ce gite.
Un gite tres joliment aménagé et où on se sent chez soi 1h après être arrivé.
La piscine est un vrai bain (10×4m). Quant aux propriétaires, on peut difficilement imaginer plus agreables et serviables.
We are so glad you felt at home here. It is what we hope to achieve with all our guests. We hope to see you again!
