Mauvezin Property Listings and Info

For buying and selling property in Mauvezin

Beautiful surroundings

The town of Mauvezin lies in the Gers department of south-west France in the ancient province of Gascony. It is set in typically peaceful and beautiful Gers countryside, with a lush green landscape dotted with traditional L-shaped farms in the distinctive Gascon style. Castles pepper the horizon, and Mauvezin has one of the very best of these, so don't forget to take a look.

Thriving market town

Mauvezin is also a thriving rural community with an excellent general market every Monday morning. The town has a particularly spectacular market square, the Place de la Liberation, which is mediaeval in origin and has lovely arches supporting the canopy under which the market takes place.

Goose fat and Gascon garlic

On certain Monday afternoons the square also hosts a garlic market, and at Easter there is a special fair held here which offers the very best of the delicious pastries and cakes which abound in France at this time of year. The Gascon heritage is strong here, and the local cuisine is simple yet delicious. Dishes made from duck and goose are the mainstay of the gastronomy, and eating is indeed close to the heart of every true Gascon.

Mauvezin's shops and restaurants

Mauvezin has some great shops and restaurants where you can buy and sample these local gastronomic delights, and also take a glass or two of a local wine, or Armagnac. Most amenities are available within the town, but should you crave a big city shopping trip then Toulouse is less than an hour away.

Mauvezin Castle

The castle of Mauvezin is well worth a visit, as it is one of the best restored castles in the region. Mauvezin is in Cathar country, and the sense of the tragic history of this period is all around. The castle has an intriguing legend inscribed into the heraldic flagstone, reading: 'I ay smart ladies'… make of it what you will! It will give you something to talk about over a glass of excellent Armagnac later on, at the very least!

Seeing stars

If you are seeking interesting and different things to do in the areas around Mauvezin, you may like to take a trip up to the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, by cable car from La Mongie. Here there is an observatory from where you can star gaze and learn the mysteries of the heavens, in a night sky unspoiled by the light pollution which blights so much of the UK. Coming down to earth, the less unusual but ever popular sport of golf is also available on the doorstep of the town, and it is also possible to go horse-riding, swimming, fishing, cycling and walking.

How to get there

Getting to Mauvezin from the UK by air is straightforward, as the town is situated within easy reach of both Pau and Toulouse, which have direct flights from the UK with a variety of airlines. Ryanair fly into Pau from London Stansted and Toulouse has flights with British Airways, easyJet, bmi, bmibaby and flybe.

Property prices and availability in and around Mauvezin

Mauvezin is the place to seek property if you love the peace and beauty of unspoiled rural France. Great southern weather coupled with lovely tranquil landscapes are the hall mark of the Gers, and it is one of the best areas to find a traditional farmhouse with land and barns for conversion, that dream house which no longer seems to exist in most of France. Outside of the major towns, property prices here are realistic, so what are you waiting for?
