Article

'It is so peaceful and what fabulous views!' is normally one of the first statements made by visitors to Le Mas Gaugeac.

Standing proud of the surrounding countryside, this ancient 'domaine' is surrounded by 40 hectares of fields and woodland.

Once connected to the fabulous Château de Biron the carefully renovated manor has an interesting history.

During the renovations a secret room was found in the attic where people were hidden during the Second World War as it was owned by a gentleman from Alsace. A spontaneous visit from an elderly lady who had lived in the house as a child refugee gave us further insight as did another lady who had lived with her parents in the 'maison de guardien', her father being the farm manager. They were part of the then French government's plan to encourage Bretons and Italians to come to the region to replace the workforce lost in the First World War and so, being Breton, had to learn French when they arrived.
