Anna is no stranger to luxurious and beautiful things having lived in and managed one of Oliver’s Travels beautiful châteaux. This charming hostess has now opened the doors of her own lovely home, a lovingly restored old hunting lodge with mesmerising views and magical sunsets.

The estate is considered one of the most enchanting and beautiful in the region and it is brimming with beautiful details such as old stone towers and archways, terracotta pots, manicured hedges and tall cypress trees. It features 360 degree panoramic views overlooking idyllic countryside, often considered as the French Tuscany and it is possible to get the occasional glimpse of the Pyrénées in the distance.

Dates carved into the stone suggest that the building dates back to the 1600s and according to the local village, it was once a kings hunting lodge. Chez Anna guests will enjoy the converted barn, which overlooks the charming Italian courtyard, with its long, beamed terrace under the eaves, for eating in the shade. The barn offers comfortable and homely accommodation with lots of charming features such as wooden floors, high ceilings, exposed beams and stonework. The swimming pool has stunning views of the countryside and is found at the end of the little track that runs along the property.

This is the perfect rural setting, yet it is just outside a village with a typical local restaurant, bakery and a post office as well as a listed 13th-Century château-church. Less than 10 minutes away is sensational Lectoure, a designated town of art and history, offering plenty of restaurants, bars, brocantes and a medieval cathedral. All around Chez Anna are walking paths, villages listed as the most beautiful in France and during the Summer the whole area comes alive  with concerts, exhibitions and wonderful markets.

Chez Anna is a delightful rural retreat in the rolling countryside of the Gers known as France's ‘Little Tuscany’; the perfect place to find tranquility and escape the stresses of modern life whilst being surrounded by some of the best food and wine in the world!

Chez Anna is located a few minutes by car from a gorgeous village in the heart of the Gers countryside, not too far from the Pyrenees mountains. In the village there is a post office, a typical french restaurant, a bakery and a 13th century chateau/church. 

The Gers is often referred to as the 'Tuscany of France': rolling hills dotted with gorgeous fortified villages and market towns. It is also the birthplace of the musketeers!

Region

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.

  • Wonderful getaway!

    Posted by Mike W. on 03/09/2018

    We’ve had a fantastic time, the place is amazing and you’ve been great hosts.

  • Great Family Stay!

    Posted by Adem on 28/08/2018

    Just wanted to say what a wonderful week we had staying at Chez Anna. The place could not be better suited for relaxed family time. We very much hope to return in the future!

  • Amazing!

    Posted by The Seviers Family on 26/08/2018

    We have just left your magical home and are now en route to the airport. Thank you so much for having us for two weeks and being such a super host and lovely company. We have had such a happy time. Your home is beautiful and couldn’t have been more perfect for all of us. You have lovingly made a very special place in a stunning setting.

  • So Nice!

    Posted by Malcolm on 15/07/2018

    Really great place. Very quiet!

  • A hidden gem

    Posted by Michael A. on 25/01/2018

    Chez Anna is a spiritual and peaceful place and we have spent many summers here as a family. The house is conveniently located close to the stunning town of Lectoure, with its beautiful antique shops, markets and restaurants. There is plenty to do - with wonderful historical villages to visit, a nearby water park, quaint markets etc. and if you don’t feel like going out, then Chez Anna is the perfect place to lounge by the pool with it’s superb 360 views of the area. The light and sunsets are magical. It's a hidden gem.


  • Perfect wedding

    Posted by Georgia W. on 23/10/2017

    Chez Anna was the perfect setting for our idyllic French wedding. People still talk about the oysters and the foie gras which were in plentiful supply at our reception and we could order the most wonderful Bordeaux wine at a fraction of the price it would have cost us in the UK. We had a French accordion and a jazz band playing under the stars and the guests danced until the early hours with crepes on offer to keep them going if they were flagging. It was everything I had dreamed my wedding would be.
