General

  • Small relaxed site in scenic setting next to vineyards and forest
  • Table d'hote and barbecues in the orchard; evenings round the firepit
  • Pool, pétanque competitions and resident donkeys

Small, friendly and eco-friendly Domaine Le Poteau in the Gers department was opened in early 2017 by friendly hosts Fiona and Alasdair. Having broken away from full-time kitchen work, trained chef Alasdair now delights in using local produce to prep fresh meals for guests to take away, and the couple hosts dinner evenings in the orchard three times a week, with a fab four-course French menu served as dusk falls.

As it's France, you may also care to check out the local tipples – easily sorted here too as Le Poteau is next to an Armagnac vineyard, and close to the wine-producing district of Côtes de Gascogne. And as it's France, you may then need to burn some gastronomic calories off... also a cinch, as the Midi-Pyrénées has around 30,000 kilometres of footpaths to tackle including loads of local routes.

Domaine Le Poteau is a short walk from the medieval village of Castelnau-d'Auzan, on a hillside and in a wildlife haven, with well-maintained grounds and plenty of shaded spots. Its facilities include communal firepits, a play area and a pool for swims – or lazy floats, depending on how much French cuisine you've sampled...

Finally, you must tackle pétanque while here, as the site's weekly competition offers 'disappointing and mildly insulting' prizes for the victorious: obviously you should go all out to win.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Delightful small. quiet, wooded site in lovely surroundings amidst the Cotes de Gascogne wineries and Armagnac distilleries.
    Large, personal pitches.
    Very dog-friendly.
    Scrupulously clean facilities.
    The most friendly and helpful site owners. Nothing was too much trouble e.g. booking restaurant for us and our friends (who stayed in one of the lovely gites), giving directions and recommendations for visits, even trimming a tree to help site our motorhome.
    Quaint and pretty Gersoise village of Castelnau d'Auzan.

    Everything, Alasdair and Fiona are exceptional people who go out of their to make sure you have a terrific stay. Incredibly helpful, really involved with their guests, nothing is too much trouble for them. The dinner party on the Sunday night was an amazing event, a superb evening with great food and a chance to get to know the other campers. Facilities on site are immaculate and the views from the pitches are beautiful. You would be hard pushed to find a better campsite anywhere, let alone France. Thoroughly recommend.

    After 6 nights at Le Poteau, I can truly say it's the best campsite we've ever stayed at. The setting is utterly beautiful - full of fruit trees and quiet spaces, and two very friendly donkeys!

    From the moment we arrived, Alasdair and Fiona made us feel totally at home - providing a glass of delicious local wine on arrival, and sharing their absolute wealth of knowledge on the local area. We chose to stay in the equipped tent, which had everything we could possibly have wanted for our six night stay: a lovely comfortable double bed, cooking equipment, coffee, the lot!

    We were so well looked after, I'm not even sure we can tell people we went 'camping'. From the fresh pastries delivered every morning, to the stunning meal Alasdair whipped up on the Sunday night, we couldn't fault the service.

    We will 100% be returning and would urge anyone who's dithering to go ahead and book ASAP!

Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was just great having you stay at Le Poteau. We loved your enthusiasm for the area and enjoyed hearing about your many adventures during your stay. You certainly fitted a lot in and got a real sense of the Gers and it's traditions. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Directions


Local attractions

It's about a kilometre from here to Castelnau-d'Auzan on the edge of Landes forest, among hiking, cycling and mountain bike trails, and within easy reach of a three-hectare lake for fishing and boating. The village is surrounded by vineyards if you're up for investigating the local vino; call into the tourist office for info, or ask Fiona and Alasdair for their tips on local tours.

For sightseeing days, the medieval town (and Armagnac producers) of Condom can be reached in about 30 minutes, and department capital Auch in just over an hour. Closer to home, the handsome town of Montréal or Montréal-du-Gers is within 15 minutes.

Other options for days out include Guinlet golf course, about 10 minutes' drive away, races and a driving school at Circuit Paul Armagnac in Nogoro (35 minutes), or the swimming and adventure park at Lac d'Aignan and boat tours and châteaux in Nérac, all within 40-45 minutes.
