We look forward to welcoming you and your divas at Chateau de Bonas situated in the Gers, South West France. We are in the heart of the Gascony region, the landscape is a stunning array of sunflowers, maize and vineyards set against the striking backdrop of the snow-capped Pyrenees. The area specialises in locally produced foie gras, delicious melons, pungent garlic and of course the Armagnac brandy and it goes without saying plentiful wine, bread and cheese!
Your accommodation comprises of 16 bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, all recently tastefully decorated and furnished. A lounge area with TV and comfy sofas on ground level. Dining can be alfresco in our courtyard under parasols overlooking the valley or inside the 18th century distillerie.
You will have exclusive use of the swimming pool, indoor squash court, tennis court, petanque and ping-pong all within the beautifully landscaped grounds.
Our tailored Diva packages are designed so you can pick and choose what suits your party. First, you need to decide on a 2 or 3 night break. We can cater for up to a maximum of 25 divas (if you dont mind sharing a room) and the minimum party size is 10. Then you simply select your desired activities to build your perfect diva weekend!
This is for the active and the adrenalin junkies- but you choose the pace. Try something different but all with an element of fun, adventure and thrills. All these activities all vary in duration, so choose your favourites then we can discuss timings.
This is ideal way to sample a real taste of the Gers and its food and wine, or try your hand at crafting your individual French style furniture or jewellrey.
