WELCOME TO SIMPLY GASCONY - February 2022

For Special Holidays...

We are your best way to find a special holiday home in Gascony to rent at any time of the year. This is a truly beautiful, unspoilt, and welcoming part of Southwest France. Each cottage, farmhouse, country house or Château on our list has its own individual character and charm. Gascony is great for families and groups of friends who want to relax, unwind, and slow down. Gascony is about proper countryside, wonderful local markets, fascinating architecture and delicious food and wine. Simply Gascony provides each Guest with personal service combined with deep local knowledge.

Gascony is the ideal place to go on holiday later this spring and summer...

Gascony has many qualities which make it the ideal destination for a holiday in a world affected by Covid. Go to 'Holiday Gascony' under the menu heading 'About Gascony' for more information. And see below for our latest report on Covid and Travel between the UK and France.

Covid & Travel between the UK and France:

Travel between the UK and France started to become easier in mid-January, with both governments signalling that they expect this trend to continue into the Spring and Summer. The advice below applies to travellers who are FULLY VACCINATED and have an approved, up to date 'health pass'.

From mid-February 2022, fully vaccinated travellers going on holiday from the UK to France, or returning back to the UK, will not have to quarantine or isolate in either country, or have an 'essential reason to travel'. Some Covid tests and extra form-filling are still required and anyone in France must be able to present their 'health pass' ('passe sanitaire') but this condition is met by the digital Covid Pass on the NHS App. Covid is no longer a bar to going on holiday in France.

We are experiencing greatly increased demand for our high season summer weeks, so it makes sense to book as soon as possible - knowing you are covered by the guarantee of our 'no cost' Covid cancellation policy.

Seasons:

Summer 2022 - 25 June to 3 September 2022:
Gascony is best known for its glorious Summer 'High' Season in July and August. There are clear blue skies, hot days and long warm evenings; there are many festivals and village parties, street markets are larger, and everyone is on holiday. All our properties are available in Summer.

Spring & Autumn 2022:
During the 'Low' Season, Gascony is quieter but there is still lots to do. Many of our properties with wood fires and central heating are available during this period when rents are much lower. From April to June and September to November the weather is often lovely but a bit cooler than in high Summer. November/December can be very pleasant, and Gascony is a great place to spend the Christmas/New Year holidays; in January, February, and March you have the bonus of excellent skiing in the Pyrenees. The minimum rental period in Winter is normally 2 weeks.
