Marciac is located in the 'Gers', also known as Gascony, bordering with the 'Hautes Pyrenees' about one hour from Lourdes and the Pyrenees. Marciac, a typical 'bastide' village, is well known for it famous August Jazz festival. The lovely rolling hills are a perfect backdrop for trips to the numerous beautiful castles just a short ride away. Summer here is warm and sunny, but also spring and autumn have comfortable warm temperatures. Come and see for yourself. If wine is your thing, check out the famous 'Madiran' wines (Chateau Montus) or the the St Mont wines, of which the vines grow next to our property. If you ask any French person about the Gers, generaly the reaction will be: 'on mange bien la bas' (you eat well there). Well, if even the French will tell you that you eat well in the Gers, maybe you should come and try it out. It's worth it!
Other Activities: Marciac Jazz festival. Famous around the world. Always great to see what famous names are coming every year. Over the last few years we had:Sting, Carlos Santana, Joan Baez, The Buena Vista Social Club, to name just a few.
Golf: Within 10 minutes you find the beautiful 'Château de Pallanne'. The 18 hole golf course is located around a splendid 18th century château in a gorgeous setting.
There are several other golf courses within one hour drive from Marciac. You will find that also for a golf vacation with friends, our villas are a perfect starting point.

Why Hendrik Jan Dadema chose Tourdun
Fell in love with it when we first saw it in 1999. In the worst time of the year, January. If you like a new property in winter without the beauties of the summer foliage and the warmth of the Southern French summer, it must be good. And it was..... We feel totaly at home there, in winter with the big fireplace as well as the summer with out outdoor kitchen and gorgeous pool. We originaly were looking for something closer to the coast, but this place proved to be so much better. The space, the feeling of safety, you don't feel anymore in the big tourist centers. The friendlyness of the local population and the peace and quiet we find here in our hectic lifes. Why are we renting out our place? Well. due to our work in tourism, we are occupied when others have their holidays. It was a pity to let the place and the pool go unused during our beautiful summers. This is why our guests benefit from this beautiful villa in Gascony.
What makes this villa unique
When you sit in our cool livingroom in summer with the arched windowdoors wide open and see the Pyrenees in the background. Or have your afternoon tea in the outdoor cuisine close to the pool. Two images that make me feel totally at home. The newly constructed patio with fireplace is great to enjoy at night, or for a comfortable breakfast with the family. The outdoor kitchen is perfect for an afternoon barbecue and offers plenty seats for all of you to enjoy dinner there. We added a small fitnessroom with large windows. You might not want to think about fitness during your vacation. But if you need it, it's there....... The small chalet we recently added is great to accomodate 2 even 4 of our younger guests. a bit more privacy and even your own terrace if you want some peace and quiet. The terrace is build in such a way, it gives the impression of a treehut.
