Steeped in history and with so many wonderful features, this 18th-century town house is for guests seeking French flair and authenticity, located in the heart of the traditional and sought-after Gascon town of Condom.

Dating back to the 1760s, Maison Vintage has been brought back to life in recent years having undergone a remarkable restoration. As you wander through this champagne-themed mansion, admire the oak floorboards, parquet flooring and other original features. Alongside the house’s grandeur, there’s a great sense of eclecticism with a collage of French antiques, objets d’art and North African touches – just step into the elegant salon with its grand piano and soak up the creative vibe.

Set over four floors, the impressive stone staircase leads to the beautiful suites and bedrooms with ample space for up to 8 guests. Each room is individually styled, some featuring romantic roll top baths, others with classic French beds as well as distinctive furnishings and décor. At the very top, a large 2-bedroom suite with its own spacious bathroom benefits from air-conditioning and views over the rustic rooftops of Condom towards the artistic Saint-Michel church. 

You will be welcomed with a bottle of French champagne and there is no better place to enjoy this than the gorgeous private courtyard. Feeling like a hidden oasis with an abundance of vintage French charm, sit back in the shade by the summer kitchen before taking a dip in the inviting plunge pool. An upper terrace is yet another atmospheric spot, perhaps the perfect place for an afternoon tea of canapés and pastries accompanied by a G&T and bubbly, all of which can be arranged by the hospitable owners.

Delicious breakfasts can be served on request alongside other catering packages to make your stay as memorable and special as it can be. That said, you needn’t travel far to experience some of Gascony’s fine gastronomy – there are excellent restaurants, boulangeries, cafes and the twice-weekly market so close to your home. Within 300m you could be sipping a glass of locally distilled Armagnac overlooking Condom’s Cathédrale Saint-Pierre or enjoying a summer boat trip along the Petite Baïse.

Venturing further afield, discover the beauty and slow pace of life of the Gers region, coming across vineyards, summer sunflowers and idyllic villages such as Larressingle, Fourcès and Montréal, all within a 10 to 20-minute drive.

Head off for long walks and cycle rides, hire canoes or kayaks along the river and visit yet more attractive market towns such as Auch, Lectoure and Fleurance. Look out for foie gras, magret, goat cheese and other locally sourced delights, then bring them back to your stylish holiday home for joyful feasts in such characterful surroundings.

In the heart of Gascony, Maison Vintage is located in the historic town of Condom, close to the banks of the Petite Baïse river, in the wonderful Gers department of southern France.

Despite the tranquil ambience of your private courtyard, step out of your front door and you are in the bustling town, a few steps from restaurants, bars, bakeries and more. Wander 300m and find yourself at the magnificent Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Condom and the brilliant statue of the four musketeers.

Explore Condom’s medieval lanes, stop off in a café-bar to sample locally distilled Armagnac, and soak up the ambience of the twice-weekly market near the cathedral, looking out for some of Gascony’s highly regarded foie-gras and magret, delicious goat cheeses and seasonal fruit and vegetables such as garlic, melons and kiwi fruit. Condom is home to several excellent restaurants and has a fine reputation for its gastronomy.

Walking just a few minutes south of the town, head to the large riverside park for picturesque walks, picnics and a small children’s play area. If you fancy a spot of canoeing or kayaking along the Baïse, drive south to Beaucaire around 15km away where excursions can be arranged.

The Gers countryside with its rolling hills and meadows is waiting to be explored. Embrace the slow pace of life and come across pretty bastide villages, fortified towns and impressive historic sites, not to mention so many atmospheric markets selling delicious produce of the region. Look out for night markets (le marché nocturne) in Gascon villages that often take place in the height of the summer – expect live music, good wine, and locally sourced food.

Other characterful market towns include both Lectoure (23km) and Fleurance (32km) whilst Auch (43km), the historic capital of Gascony, is home to the impressive Tour d’Armagnac and Cathedrale Saint-Marie. Idyllic villages not to be missed include Larressingle, Fourcès and Montréal, all within a 10 to 20-minute drive from Condom.

Part of the Santiago de Compostella pilgrimage route, there are some lovely walking trails around Larressingle and Montréal, or discover other hiking routes through fields of sunflowers, vineyards, and farms. Of course, there are also opportunities for cycling, horse-riding, summer water-based activities and even hot-air balloon rides.

Meanwhile, music lovers should check out the dates for the famous Jazz Festival in Marciac, around an hour away, which usually takes place in late July/August (jazz concerts take place throughout the year).

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.

Wander out of your front door and you have restaurants, bakeries and shops within a few steps. Within 300m you can be in the heart of Condom by the impressive statue of the four musketeers or enjoying the bustling twice-weekly market by the cathedral. In the summer months there are boat trips along the Petite Baïse in Condom.

Families will also enjoy the house’s proximity to Condom’s large park south of the town (just over a 5-minute walk away) where there is plenty of space for picnics, play and walks as well as a small children’s playground.

Try out a canoeing or kayaking excursion along the Petite Baïse river by driving 15km south to Beaucaire. Another Base de Loisirs, usually open in the height of the summer, is a little further south at Castéra-Verduzan where you will find an inflatable water park, supervised swimming and pedal boats.

Heading north, venture towards Agen for the Aqualand water park and neighbouring Walygator Sud-Ouest, an exciting theme park with rides and attractions for a range of ages.

Owner Profile

When did you become the owner?
We became owners of Maison Vintage in November 2020.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Its amazing character features, its amazing flooring throughout, it’s 4 cantilever stone staircases, the high courtyard walls reminiscent of a Riad the list goes on. This house was something very different for us and we love it.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
We believe that it was originally part of a complex of buildings all joined together, whoever the hierarchy/head were, they would have probably lived here. 

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
We have had a lady visit who was an academy award winner for her clothing design on a Hollywood movie.

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really…

Must do?
Kayaking, Bandas festival (in May), the Jazz in Marciac festival (end of July and beginning of August). Experience a micro-lite ride (amazing), the local distillery Aurian, rent bikes and ask for a bicycle wine tour to visit local wineres into the french countryside, go to the Antiques Village in Lectoure (one of our favourite places to buy French furniture and decoration) and the list goes on...

Must eat?
There are so many good places to eat, depending on your personal tastes, but we have three that are our favourites and one, called “Le Citrus”, is two doors away.

Must see?
The Cathedral Saint Pierre and it’s cloisters, the museum, the amazing Larressingle fortified village, the Abbey de Flaran, La Romieu-the cat village to name just a few.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Ask us to drink some special champagnes selected for you at the house (price on request)  and order our special “chef at home” afternoon tea (gin and tonic + fizz, french canapés and sandwiches and French pastries) - perfect if you want to enjoy a light meal on-site without going out to a restaurant or just before!

If you prefer to go out for diner or lunch, book your restaurants early, especially at the weekend.

Reviews

  • Very special place to stay

    Posted by Suzanne W on 20/08/2022

    Maison Vintage deserves a 5 star rating in every sense! It is a wonderful and very special place to stay right in the heart of beautiful Condom. The moment you step into the elegant house you know you are staying somewhere very special - the delightful owners are incredibly attentive, from serving welcome bubbles on arrival to preparing sumptuous breakfasts (better than the Ritz, London)! This lovingly restored four story house is full of history, chateau chic charm and warmth - an amazing experience during our stay in Le Gers and highly recommended!

  • Simply stunning

    Posted by Gregory W on 21/07/2022

    A visit to Maison Vintage in Condom. A gloriously restored/developed/appointed house. Gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms, suites, spiral stone stair-case, classy objets d’art sit alongside offbeat humorous prints. An artist’s dream. A designers paradise. It’s four floors continually delight your senses and the cool pool in the courtyard was a hugely welcome respite from the high temperatures. This place can be rented! And it deserves to be a film location.
    I actually found it hard to explain how I felt about it. Simply stunning.

  • Très jolie maison de charme

    Posted by Hélène on 16/07/2022

    Très jolie maison de charme, très joliment restaurée et meublée sur le thème du champagne. Petit déjeuner de type anglais copieux et généreux. Hôtes aux petits soins.
