The Owner Says

The roulotte is one of the original accommodation options at the Domaine d’Escapa which invites you to take a beautiful journey inside bohemian life. Virginie, Lilian and their tribe are your hosts for the holidays, in a pleasant “family spirit”. Horses, donkeys, ponies, as well as the lake and the forest park allow you to rest and recharge your batteries into the wild.
The lodge trailer has electric heating, one double alcove bed, two single couch beds and one single trundle bed. All the bed linen is included and beds are made before arrival.

The fully equipped kitchen corner has crockery, sponge, filter coffee maker, kettle, microwave and two hotplates. We also provide you with dishwashing liquid and a cloth. You also have your own barbecue outside. You also have your own toilet and shower.

Each of our trailers are organised on various levels on the hill, with 15 to 20 meters in between (50 to 65 feet).

We have various activities available on site: heated swimming and paddling pool, outside spa, sauna, fishing; as well as in the surroundings: mountain bike, hiking on The Way of Saint James, jogging routes, horse-riding.

Activities

This is a rural location, so it's light on big museums and attractions, but awash with excellent walking routes and quite roads for cycling. The surrounding towns – Auch, Mirande, Bassoues, Tillac – all have weekly markets and intriguing histories in their own right and a dotting of ancient churches and monuments, while the dungeon and 14th century castle in Bassoues (20km) is well worth a visit. To make the most of the vast open countryside, have a nose around the pamphlets in the campsite reception, with info on canoeing and kayaking, pony-trekking and tree-top adventures in the local forest park.

Food & Drink

Reception shop stocked with the basics (including ice-cream) and a small bar selling beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks (10am–7pm). Meal baskets are available for your kitchen; specialties include foie gras, lentils and duck cassoulet, goat cheese, apple and rhubarb pie and fondant for dessert. It's 5km to L'Isle-de-Noé where the magnificent riverside château hosts restaurant Le Tic Tic gascon (05 6206 4622) in the courtyard – guests eat under a light canopy in the open air. Well worth a visit (10am–11pm; meals are around €13).
