Barrusclet Farmhouse, Gondrin, France – Review of our stay.

Barrusclet

We had been looking for somewhere to stay in France where we could have a week away to relax with our family. We found Barrusclet Farmhouse searching the internet and it seemed to have everything that the seven of us would need.

Location of the Barrusclet Farmhouse

We flew to Toulouse, hired a car and the Barrusclet Farmhouse was fairly easy to find following approximately an hour and a half’s drive.

 

Barrusclet Farmhouse is remote but located only a 5 minute drive from Gondrin, a small village which has a great supermarket, boulangerie and patisserie, and where we visited every day. You can walk there, takes about 25 minutes but we mostly drove so that we could top up on our provisions. Fresh bread, cheese and wine seems to taste so much better in the French countryside! If you wanted to venture further the town of Condom is only 12kms away.

The Pool at the Barrusclet Farmhouse

Hot sunny days were spent in the lovely pool, it really was one of our favourite parts of the property. This area is fenced off so is safe for young children, and has lovely views out over the countryside.

The barn was filled with inflatables, balls, and other toys we could play with in the pool and the weather was perfect.

Pool fun

We spent a lot of time outside and had great fun playing volley ball over the washing line that got very competitive. The kids still have trouble accepting that a team of adults with a combined age of 143 beat them!

Bicycles were also available and were used during our stay, and when it all got too much then there was always the hammock to chill out in!

Chilling!

The Farmhouse

Barrusclet farmhouse has 5 bedrooms that can sleep up to 12-16, the bedrooms were all decorated to a high standard and very comfortable. Bathrooms were available throughout. The kitchen/diner was well equipped and spacious. A great place for preparing some fabulous meals but also for relaxing and reading, there was also a large coffee table ideal for doing jigsaws.

We also loved sitting outside in the pretty courtyard with beer and wine in hand waiting for the sun to go down.

Once the sun went down, then the games nights would begin.

Table Tennis in the Games Room

The games room was brilliant fun, evenings spent playing table football, pool, darts, and table tennis. The boys obviously being very competitive! There was also tennis courts that we could use that were only a 10 minute drive away.

It certainly is a beautiful property, we really enjoyed our stay here and felt totally relaxed on our return home. We were sad to leave after having such quality family time, and would love to return one day. This property is ideal for a large family holiday, or an adult group of friends looking for a private property to rent. It is remote, which is what we loved about it, but is in a great area to explore by car too.

  1. Now this place does look like a gorgeous place to stay and a lovely retreat! I can see myself hiring a bike to cycle around the wonderful countryside then popping back to cool off in the pool before reading a book in that hammock! So much to do here, it looks perfect, thanks for sharing. #feetdotravel

    Sounds like a perfect place for a family holiday, especially if it can cater so well for 7 people. I don’t know the south of France that well but it sure looks idyllic. Congrats on the volleyball win by the way 😉

    This reminds me of a place I used to live in Spain in. A tiny village close to a small city with all essentials, great weather and pool games! Gosh I am getting all nostalgic now. This seems like a great place for a family vacation though! What a great find just by searching it on the internet!
