Our guest house
Lacassagne is an 18th century house, simple, warm and surronded by nature, in the hearth of Gascony. It is located 500 meters from the small village of Larressingle and its famous citadel.
The building has more than 600m² of living space, half of which is open to guests. Only three double guest rooms give access to very beautiful living areas : a large living room, a library office, a dining room for breakfast and a smaller living room for its privacy. In fine weather, theire is further access to a covered terrace with a spacious living room and two hectares of grounds where you can wander.
A complementary breackfast is served each morning between 8 and 10am.
Nyima and Christian
A short presentation of the rather atypical owners of Lacassagne…
Nyima, interior decorator, originally from Alsace (with links Austia, Germany, Poland, Paris and Savoie)… A colourful personality, a keen biker (she just got the new R18 from BMW !). Practiced her talents as an interior decorator mainly in France but also in Nepal and Chile. She is the soul of the place. She previously managed guest house in Savoie for 10 years.
Christian, a frequent traveler, organizer and incidentially the boss of Tirawa, a travel company that sells travel dreams around the world (www.tirawa.com).When he is there, he assists Nyima in the Lacassagne daily newsletter. He is also a biker (Africa Twin Honda 1100), but still lags behind Nyima…
In September 2018, during an e-montain bike trip on pilgrimage route to St Jacques de Compostelle, between Le Puy en Velay and St Jean Pied de Port, they stayed in Lacassagne, which was already a guest house at the time, masterfully run by Maïder and Denise… Nyima and Christian literally fell in love with the place and offered to buy their new abode and began some renovation work for the opening which took place on April 1, 2020 !
In the vicinity of the house
Within a radius of 30km, there are a multitude of charming villages, remarkable sites, monuments, abbey and vineyards… Above all we are nesled in the calm of the Gers and its pristine nature.
