Before we began walking the Camino de Santiago we went a day early to check out the area and stayed at the starting point for us in a village called Barcelonne du Gers in a beautiful gite called la Bastide du Cosset. It was in a really pretty older house full of antiques and a joy to wander around. There wasn’t much to see in the village itself.
From the back.
Looking down the staircase from the second floor.
A lovely set up on a landing. The owner also had a collection of chickens in one area.
Breakfast one morning.
The striking floor in the entrance.
Too pretty and delicate to use.
These were real flowers. I guess they won’t last as long as if they would if in water but I loved the look.
