Le Château de Sauveterre is situated in the Gers departement in the south-west of France, approximately 50 kilometres south west of Toulouse, roughly three-quarters of an hour travelling time from Blagnac airport. It is set in a nine acre park, containing woodland, football pitches, tennis courts and a swimming pool and lies just below Sauveterre Village—a hilltop settlement, with fine views across to the Pyrenees. It is three kilometers from the nearest small town, Lombez.
NB: Please be aware that if you are using GPS navigation, that there are several "Sauveterre" villages in France. Make sure it is the correct one, in the Gers (postcode 32220).

Our top tip? After leaving the village of Lombez you'll be on a long straight road (D632). After 2 kms you'll see a road sign on the right indicating Sauveterre. Please ignore this first sign and do not turn right here as this will take you to the village and not to the Château. If you see a golf course or a cemetery you've gone the wrong way.
The entrance to the Château is actually the second set of buildings on the right 1 km further down the road past this sign. After passing the 'yellow diamond' sign, slow down, indicate right and look out for a white and red post which marks the entrance to the Château. There is a white board that says Domaine de Sauveterre at the bottom of the drive. Watch out for the speed camera on this road - the speed limit is 80km & it flashes in both directions!
