Puissentut is a beautiful property in the heart of rolling Gascon countryside. Within easy reach of a pretty village with boulangerie, post office and restaurant, and only 10 minutes' drive to the local market town - this is an ideal place to enjoy the gentle pace of life in rural France.
Carefully renovated, the main wing of the house provides stylish accommodation for up to 19 guests. Doors lead from a sheltered central courtyard into a large dining room. Adjoining this is a fully-equipped professional kitchen with access to the garden, and a secluded terrace.
Also in this part of the house is a substantial study (with wi-fi internet access), a single en-suite bedroom, and two separate w/cs. There are a further five doubles with en-suites on the ground floor, accessed directly from the gardens. The single bedroom, and one of the doubles (and their bathrooms) are wheelchair accessible - as is the ground floor of the house.
A sweeping staircase leads to the first floor and a light, airy living room (with tv, dvd and stereo). There are also four more en-suite double bedrooms on this level.
The original character of the building has been sensitively combined with modern decor and furnishings to create very comfortable, stylish accommodation. Several of the bedrooms can be arranged as doubles or twins, offering added flexibility for large groups. There is also a separate gite (with one double bedroom) that can be rented for an extra cost.
The pretty gardens at Puissentut have lovely views across the valley. With a swimming pool (10mx4m), and plenty of space for children to run around, this is the perfect place to relax in the heart of Gascony. And to help you make the most of your stay, the owners (who live in a separate part of the house) are on-hand to advise and assist you if required.

The owners/managers of Puissentut live in a separate wing of the Chateau. They will provide you with as much or as little help as you require. At certain times of the year Puissentut is used for events and workshops. Because of this it is equipped to a very high standard and the owners can provide a wide range of additional services.
