countryside of Gascony and the Gers bread delivery hill top town in the Gers

our location

Gastronomy is one of the main delights of the Gers – Armagnac is to be found in almost every village, while the great centres of Condom and Eauze are only 10-20 minutes away. Confit and foie gras are major specialities, as are prunes from Agen, figs and walnuts. There are also excellent local wines to be tasted as well as the local aperitif, Floc. Equally, there are many good restaurants, details of which are to be found in the house book.

There are many interesting historical sites within easy reach of the house: the moated chateau of Fources which boasts a fine restaurant, the medieval Abbaye de Flaran, the Chateau de Cassaigne, the Roman villa at Seviac, the Cathedral at Condom. Agen and Auch are also worth visiting, and Toulouse and Bordeaux can easily be reached. Condom and La Romieu, both 10 km from the house, are on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella.
