The Estate

Domaine de Peyloubčre

Peyloubčre is a beautiful 17th century Gascony estate set in 35 acres of parkland, gardens and tall trees. The river Gers flows through part of the estate and the murmur of the waterfall is a constant reminder of its presence.  There is a large island, lakes and a secluded summerhouse secreted in the woods. The grounds are a magical mixture of unspoiled natural beauty, old stone buildings and landscaping and are there to be enjoyed by our guests.

Guests have exclusive use of the 40' heated swimming pool. The pool and surrounding paved area is enclosed by a fence and two self-closing gates.  The shady lawn and spacious 'au vent' provide a beautiful and peaceful environment for games, barbeques or just relaxing in the sun.  Sun shades, loungers and tables and chairs are plentiful and there is a large table and benches in the 'au vent' so that guests can be as separate or sociable as they wish!

The pig house is a magical little building, roofed in the same old curved tiles as the Manoir and is separated from the cottages and their gardens to offer a peaceful alternative to the pool for relaxation and sunbathing.  The garden with its own terrace, loungers and sun shade, is fenced for privacy.  Within the building there is a Scandinavian solid wood sauna and a 5-person Somethy Spa, this company being the leaders in hydrotherapy in France. There is also a jet shower, WC and comfortable seating.

Peyloubčre is classified as a 'Monument Historique' by virtue of the fact that it was the home of the Italian painter and sculptor, Mario Cavaglieri, for over forty years.  Unique legacies of his ownership are the bohemian atmosphere of the Domaine, the elegant Italian garden and the frescoed ceilings and walls in many of the rooms of the Manoir, including several of those devoted to the chambres d'hôte.  Click on Mario Cavaglieri and Chambre d'hote for further details.
