Panjas liegt zwischen den Weinbergen des Armagnac und den malerischen Sonnenblumenfeldern. Es besteht aus der Herberge und dem Haus der Eigentümer, die beide im späten 18. Jahrhundert in der charmanten traditionellen Architektur von "Torchis und Colombagen" errichtet wurden. Das Gästehaus wurde jetzt umfassend und liebevoll renoviert und bietet Platz für 4 Personen. Am Ende einer ruhigen Landstraße genießt es einen wunderschönen offenen Blick über die sanfte Hügellandschaft und bietet Ruhe in einer ländlichen und unberührten Umgebung. Sie werden unser charmantes Refugium und die wunderbare Oase der Ruhe lieben!

Peace and tranquility with beautiful surroundings
Following a week of camping in the Pyrenees, we arrived at Panjas ready for some relaxation and were immediately awed by the beautiful setting. The garden is large and varied and very well maintained, with a backdrop of the local farmers' maize and sunflower fields. The pool is cleaned every morning by Malcolm and was perfect for cooling off and keeping our 8 year old entertained. The gite is very well equipped - I can't think of anything which was lacking, and Yannick was the perfect host giving a thorough tour round and ensuring everything was to our satisfaction. A bottle of the local aperitif 'floc' was left for us, together with some water and soft drinks in the fridge (though the tap water is fine for drinking).
The balcony was decorated with lovely hanging baskets and perfect for spotting wonderful insects (hummingbird moths, big black bees, butterflies, etc) and it was great to see so many bees around the abundance of lavender at the foot of the entrance staircase. Lizards were also aplenty and intriguing to watch.
We ventured out to a couple of local villages/ towns for markets and food shopping which were 10- 20 minutes away by car and had everything we required. I had a few early morning jogs down the lane and back along the road to Averon-Bergelle, seeing perhaps 2 cars each time. It really is such a haven of peace and tranquility, I can't stress enough how relaxing we found it.
Yannick and Malcolm were great, usually on hand to offer advice if we needed it, but leaving us to ourselves for the most part, as we weren't really bothered about going anywhere much! I would definitely recommend this gite to those who crave slipping away from it all and whiling away the hours, though I'm sure there is plenty to go and see locally should the urge take you! We will definitely be back sometime...
Thank you very much Jo for your nice comments. It was a joy to have your company. Sorry the roads were so busy!, not normal around here.
You are very welcome at Panjas whenever you wish to visit us again.

Fantastic Gite in Lovely, Peaceful Area
This gite (Panjas) is located in a very peaceful part of Gers. It is in a rural area surrounded by corn fields and vineyards. The gite is at the end of a small road and the only passing traffic is the occasional tractor from the neighbouring farm!
The gite itself is immaculately clean and very well equipped. It has everything you need. It has a very large balcony which is perfect for sitting out, especially in the evenings with a glass of wine!
The pool and gardens are very well maintained and we were very lucky to be able to try some of Malcolm & Yannick's homegrown fruit and vegetables.
Malcolm and Yannick were perfect hosts. Friendly, informative and always available but also allowed us privacy. They kindly took us to a local village fete on our first evening there and this was a lovely introduction to the local culture with a lot of wine being consumed! It was something that is not experienced by visitors very often.
All in all, Panjas is a fantastic gite in lovely, peaceful surroundings - everything that is needed for a relaxing holiday. We would very highly recommend Panjas to anyone who wants to chill out while still being able to explore the beautiful countryside and towns.
Beautiful location perfect for a visit to Gascony.
This is a beautiful part of Gers and where better to stay than here. It is even more beautiful than the photographs. They do not capture the peace, tranquility and the stunning flaura and fauna in Yannick's lovely garden or the views across the countryside from the balcony which is hung with pretty flowers. The first thing that greets you is the aroma of lavender and the welcome from our hosts was fantastic. Warm and friendly, they were the perfect hosts, giving advice on where to eat and visit, taking an interest in their guests, on hand yet unobtrusive. We felt perfectly 'looked after'.
There is so much to do here too. Jazz at Marciac was fabulous and we will return again and again to that wonderful festival. We also enjoyed visiting the numerous Chateaux, beautiful villages, vineyards as well as attending some of the many festivals. The annual one at Lupiac ( home of D'Artignan) is a must. For those who like shopping and history, the city of Auch is also nearby and well worth a visit. We also drove to the Pyrenees, which was not far and offered a feast for the eyes, so spectacular was the scenery.
The food of Gascony is quite simply fabulous and Malcolm and Yannick advised on several places to eat all of which were great.
All this and after a day spent basking in the wonderful Gers sunshine, a great pool to refresh you with a lovely private area to sunbathe. I will certainly return. Thank you Yannick for a truly memorable holiday.
A place in the country
Panjas is a charming old property, with lovingly tended gardens, set amid fields, hedgerows and woodland at the end of a narrow lane which immediately morphs into a track.
A holiday here is about peace and quiet and the open air.
Favoured pursuits for us were sitting in the garden of the gite which abuts the main house, lying by the pool or sipping a drink and eating a leisurely meal on the balcony.
Then there was the exploration of the countryside, whether walking or driving, visiting the excellent market at Eauze and dining at local restsaurants.
The closest of these in Manciet - about three miles - was particularly good. Those with deep pockets can order an 1848 armagnac at 400 euros a glass. That's right - not a bottle, a glass.
La Cave at Aignan, some six miles away, serves robust peasant food that will sate the heartiest appetites.
The gite's owners Yannick and Macolm were friendly and helpful - particularly in booking tables and suggesting places of interest to visit. Yannick organised a visit to a nearby armagnac distillery where I bought a good bottle at a very good price.
A peaceful and delightful retreat
A wonderful location for a relaxing holiday....beautifully quiet location in fantastic countryside. A gorgeous garden with lovely pool - just great for hot sunny days.
Accommodation as pictured and description. Owners Yannick and Malcolm are warm and friendly and exceedingly helpful when required....just the right touch.
Good restaurants in the area...great wine, lots of wildlife and birds. So many places to go and see, so many fabulous markets and activities...even after two weeks we were left wanting more.
Relaxing holiday in a charming gite.
We really enjoyed our fortnight in this peaceful location. Yannick and Malcolm were most welcoming and hospitable, as well as providing useful information about the locality and what it had to offer. The gite was clean, well equipped and just right for the two of us. We particularly enjoyed meals and drinks on the balcony overlooking the beautiful garden and pool area. The nearby village of Aignon was handy for food shopping and had incredible views towards and along the central chain of the Pyrenees. We enjoyed touring the beautiful villages near Condom, the medieval festival at Cazaubon and longer day trips to the mountains. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday deep in rural France.
