Lexis is set in the heart of the bass Armagnac region of Gascony. Our nearest town of Eauze is home to all ameneties including an excellent weekly market. Plenty of restaurants and bars, banks and supermarkets but without the crowds. There are historical bastides and villages throughout the area, notably Larresingle which is know as the Carcassonne of the Gers.
In the summer there are music festivals at Marciac, for jazz, Vic Fezensac for latino, Mirande for country and Condom for the local bandas festival. Many villages have their own arena for 'course landaise' - a bovine spectacular where brave young men leap the bulls rather than killing them.
The beautiful atlantic beaches are accessible for day trips as are the pyrenees - both take slightly more than one and half hours by car. Toulouse and Bordeaux are similar distances. Much closer to home is lac de l'Uby which has a beach, pedalos and a swimming pool. There is a water park 20 mins drive away at Gondrin and an 18 hole golf course 10 mins away
