The Owner Says
We’ve been careful to preserve the things that made us fall in love with Domaine Le Poteau. It’s a friendly, relaxing, quiet and beautiful little site where you can unwind, enjoy the wildlife and forget the hassles of the outside world. The most stressful thing you are likely to encounter is our very disorganised and not very serious boule tournaments. When you do peel yourself off your hammock or lounger, the beautiful Gers region beckons; rich with culture, gastronomy and outdoor activity. A fabulous, friendly, unspoiled region to explore.
Our pitches are large and shaded and carefully spaced to offer privacy and solitude and the two toilet blocks are kept spotlessly clean.
We have a beautiful and stylish Bell Tent. The main tent has a very comfortable bed, lamps, seating and storage. There is a separate kitchen tent with everything you might need to rustle up something delicious using fabulous local produce or to simply heat up a tin of beans! We also have a fully equipped tent. Slightly less glamorous but practical and roomy if you are travelling light.
We also have two gites, located at the far end of the vineyard, far enough away from the campsite to provide solitude but close enough to make participating in the campsite activities an easy walk past the ripening grapes. They are well equipped and have beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and village. Our guests describe them as "magical" "calm" "Idyllic".
We have a brand new (2018) 7m above ground pool nestled in a little hollow below a meadow and above our woodland. It is an unusual but delightful spot for a dip.
The vineyard, which used to produce Domaine Le Poteau’s own wine and Armagnac, still borders our quiet little site, where you may see Jean Jacques, the vigneron, checking his crop. We make sure that as much fabulous local produce is available to visitors as possible – from bread and croissants delivered fresh from the village to the wine you can sip in the orchard and the ingredients used in the traditional French meals served in the evenings.
The local village, Castelnau d’Auzan is just an easy stroll from the campsite and gites. It is a really friendly and very welcoming village where you will be able to eat and drink with the locals and enjoy a bit of banter if you like. We feel that it is really important to support the excellent local businesses which support the life of our community. The village hosts several events in summer. The other villages that surround us also offer a wide range of markets, festivals, cafes and restaurants.
