The house

Lacassagne

 

Lacassagne is a charming guest house partly built in the 18th century. Originally, this building was certainly used to store Armagnac barrels. In the local architectural language we speak here of "Gersoise", that is to say of a long house, with just a small part upstairs. Located about 500 meters below the village of Larressingle, this house is a blend of comfort and authenticity. It is located in the middle of six hectares, four being used by a farmer who cultivates organic crops and two forming a park planted with oaks and pines. Three guest rooms and large common areas, open to travelers, offer a total change of scenery in the middle of the countryside. Here no televisions, but hundreds of books, paintings, carpets, sculptures ... Here, little internet, almost no network for laptops ... We are in the white zone ... and very happy to be there. In return, squirrels, hinds, foxes, passerines, owls fly and frolic in the meadows!
