The Midi-Pyrenees / Gers region
Sublime, hearty food and red wine, armagnac and rural tranquillity is just a taste of this fabulous area. The land is gently undulating, punctuated by the occasional picturesque Bastide town and barely changed from centuries ago. It is land that time has forgotten - and this is what draws people in for relaxing holidays.
It has a dry and warm climate, the area offers great walks, fishing, canoeing, horse-riding, many medieval towns, châteaux and armagnac vineyards. Armagnac is famous in southern Gascony and there are plenty of places where you can taste a drop.
The Eauze / Castelnau d'Auzan area
Just 3kms from Tarrit de Bas is Castelanau d’Auzan where there is bar and restaurant plus a small weekly market. Just 12kms is Eauze, a very pleasant market town which bursts into life every Thursday morning on market day. There are some nice examples of half-timbered architecture too, but it's the market that brings you there. The next village along the D15 is Montréal, about 10 kms away. It's an English-built bastide founded in the late 13th century. Further east are Larressingle with its fort and moat, and Condom which claims to be the 'capital' of the unofficial Armagnac region and is home to the Musée de l'Armagnac.
It is an easy ride by car to historic Nérac, a quiet, attractive town on the Baïse river. The old town is a maze of narrow streets lined with 16th and 17th century houses. There is also a lovely park (La Garenne) with several fountains, which was laid out by Henri IV's father in the 15th century, and a good selection of pleasant shops and restaurants. If you're near Nérac, then try and visit the four-tower mill of Barbaste, a landmark in Lot-et-Garonne. It's next to a romanesque bridge on a pre-Roman causeway leading from the Pyrenees to Perigueux. Slightly further on is the walled village of Vianne founded in 1284 when English and French started to fight over Aquitaine. Vianne has charming handicraft shops, glass factory and a lively night-market. To the north, Casteljaloux, about 45 km away, has a wide selection of shops, restaurants and spa; market days there are Tuesday and Saturday.
The nearest main town west is Mont-de-Marsan which has a summer party lasting two weeks at the end of June. This is a good time to watch corridas or sample the local and less blood-thirsty version of bull-fighting, courses landaise .
If music is your thing, there is much to enjoy: for two weeks in August, Marciac (approx 50 mins' drive away) hosts an internationally-known jazz festival; Vic Fezensac (approx. 30 mins' drive) hosts a latino festival in the last week of July; Mirande (approx 50 mins' drive) holds a country festival in the second week of July; there is a classical festival in the towns surrounding Nérac from June to August.
