Below are some kind words from our many guests at Mounon du Nord:
Myself and my extended family had the most wonderful time at Le Faucon in May. Our party included a toddler and a 4 year old and their grandparents and Le Faucon catered for all of our needs. Jo and Jean-Marc assisted with booking restaurants for us and advised on places to go. The house and grounds are spacious and safe enough to allow children to run around and enjoy. Jo and Jean Marc left toys out in both the garden and the pool for our children and each morning our kids couldn't wait to see what had been left out for them. They were also allowed to choose from Jo & Jean-Marc's DVD library whenever required.
The house is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area and we also spent many days just enjoying the garden, pool and having barbeques.
My son was devastated to leave this beautiful house and has frequently asked if we can move there. So, right now, at both my children's insistence we are booking a return trip and are very much looking forward to it.
If I have any criticism it's that the photos on the website cannot do this house and grounds justice.

We had a very pleasant time here. Mounon du Nord is a beautiful and very quiet place, the weather was fantastic allowing us to have outdoor life the whole week. Nice places to visit, Fources, Nerac (chateau & long walk along the river) La Romieu (look for stone cats everywhere). And a day trip to the Pyrenees was very memorable. .

Being a manager of a 4*hotel in Cardiff, Wales; I have very high standards, all of which were met and exceeded during our stay. The gites are extremely well equipped and we wanted for nothing. The area is beautiful with plenty to do come rain or shine. Enjoyed the wine tasting and love the Armagnac from Cassaigne. Condom Cathedral is well worth a visit. Big Thanks to Jo and Jean Marc and family for a lovely stay, welcome and hospitality. We will be booking our flights for a return visit very soon.
Anne & Neil Miles, Cardiff. May 2010
What a lovely cottage, we have all really enjoyed our stay in France what a beautiful place. Wished we had stayed for 2 weeks to see more. We really had a relaxed stay & felt very comfortable. Thank you Jo and Jean-Marc for all of your help and advice on where to go and what to do. We felt very welcomed. We will be back again soon.
A comfortable and characterful base for exploring the beautiful countryside of the Gers. We really appreciated the extra touches such as the welcome pack, the advice on itineraries and restaurants, and your organising bookings and local wine tasting.
Richard & Sarah, Bucks (Alouette)
Best gite we have ever stayed in, clean, tidy and with great facilities and plenty to do. Everything we could have wanted and more, we wished we had booked two weeks, thanks!
Sali, Craig, Fiona & Wyndham ( Le Faucon)
We stayed in Alouette for 10 days at the end of April, our third visit to Mounon du Nord. We had a lovely holiday, everything, including the weather, was perfect ! Hot days, cool nights, the wood burning stove was very cosy in the evenings. The gite is very comfortable, well equipped and peaceful. The surrounding countryside of the Gers is as beautiful and unspoilt as ever. We enjoyed some wonderful cycle rides through the countryside, stopping at cafes along the way at Castera Verduzan, Valence sur Baise and St.Puy, and soaking up the quiet, unique atmosphere of the little villages such as Bezolles, Beaucaire, Ayguetine and Rozes. We were pleased to find we could still enjoy a fixed four course lunch including wine and bread for 11 euros! See you again soon!
Jackie & Ian Wild, Derbyshire
A delightful place to stay, wonderful views and countryside to explore but plenty to see and do - cheap wine, markets are a must and so is a visit to Agen for a 5 course lunch at the train station as recommended by Rick Stein - be warned it takes over 2 hours! Great shopping.
John & Dulcie, Cardiff
My family (husband, 15 year old daughter and her friend) have just returned from 2 weeks in Le Faucon and all agreed it was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The gite was spacious and cool on some very hot days! It contained all that we needed plus lots of unexpected extras. The pool was spotlessly clean and again very welcome on hot days. Lots of pretty villages around and some great wine in the local vineyard.
We would definitely go again!
Rose Bell, Pontypridd
We just spent a wonderful christmas, we even had snow on boxing day and watched deer! We went to the mountains which only took 2 hours and had a great day going up the cable car and sledging in St Lary Soulan, we sampled the many wines on offer, pousse rapiere and foie gras - a magical time! The gite was cosy and well equipped, the best we have stayed in.
