Beyond a simple identity, an entire philosophy of life and a special relationship to others has developed in the heart of Gascony and it's through the discovery of this territory, rich with historic sites and century-old remains, that we can understand its personality, freedom, independence and the taste of good times. A spirit of liberty and tolerance sets the tone of your stay in the Gers, where everything is possible, even doing nothing!
In this land of adventure and history, you can explore castles and abbeys, fortified castles, following the route of fortified towns and flowered villages. And vary your pleasures: amongst the thousands of available activities to enjoy are sports, thermal cures to get back in shape, walks amongst the vines or naps in the shade... you set the rhythm!
No holiday is complete without the discovery of the local gastronomy! Some of France's best known cuisine is from the Gers-Gascony. Among its specialities are foie gras and duck confit, but perhaps its most celebrated product is Armagnac, a hearty oak-aged brandy with the soft, rustic style of its terroir.
With your family, as a couple or between friends, take heart on the paths, rivers and hillsides and discover the Gers in Gascony, where culture and relaxation go hand in hand.
