Le Relais, a welcoming guest house

Le Relais de Pouzac is an old farmhouse that we bought in 2017 and renovated to transform it into a guest house.
We tried to model this building in our image: warm and welcoming. Our wish: that you can enjoy a soothing stay!

The House in a few dates

It is difficult to give a specific date of construction for the house but it is certain that it was built at the beginning of the nineteenth century, as evidenced by the Napoleonic cadastre.

Archival documents inform us that in 1830 the property had a racecourse on its grounds. A map shows it but also race posters organized in 1903. It seems that this racecourse was abandoned during the second world war.

Different owners lived in the house during the 19th century. The Condat family, mayors of the town of Pouzac, then Edmond Blanc who bought the estate between 1892 and 1893. The latter is the son of the founder of the Sea Bath Company of Monaco, rich shareholder of the Echo of Paris. Member of the Hautes-Pyrénées department in 1893, then re-elected in 1898 until 1902, history will remember his political clashes with Jean Jaurès.

Edmond Blanc is especially passionate about riding. In Pouzac, he organizes events on the racetrack, the stables see grow stallions such as Reverend. In 1901, Edmond Blanc built the racecourse of Saint-Cloud and tends to abandon the racecourse of Pouzac.

In 1903, the estate was acquired by Lieutenant-Colonel Henri-Charles Ferdinand de Laitre, whose family still owned a noble house on the land.

Recently, in 2017, the Laffont family acquired the stables-related property and opened the complex to the public.
