Fixed-line DSL is available, with the house only 600 meters from the telephone exchange. The DSL is "unbundled" and therefore of a higher-than-ordinary speed. As well, WiMax and 4G ultra-broadband internet is available (and employed) due to the house's proximity to both 4G/WiMax antennas. (Warning: At present, both unbundled-DSL and 4G may not be available everywhere in the Gers.)
Recently built (2007) with geothermal heating, well-insulated for comfortable ambient temperature year-round. Authentic Provencal design, the house (172m2 usable floor space, including covered terrace of 26m2 plus garage) has a tastefully decorated interior and offers countryside tranquility. Swimming-pool can be constructed, either near covered terrace above or additional property below (in order to avoid noise).
The garage will store one car as well as a small workshop. However, since car garage-storage is no great necessity here, the garage could be employed to build an additional bedroom. Rental income during the summer months is about 700/800 euros per week. (Various agents can handle manage your property contractually in your absence.)
