The Midi-Pyrenees / Gers region
The culture is largely agricultural, with great emphasis on the local gastronomical specialities such as:
Côtes de Gascogne,
Floc de Gascogne,
and wild mushrooms.
Some prominent cultivated crops are corn, colza, sunflowers and grain.
The department is characterised by sleepy bastide villages and rolling hills full of sunflowers and with the Pyrenees visible to the south.
Endless activities within the area catering for all ages and requirements such as:
Horse racing at Pau, Golfing, Racing circuits at Pau and Nogero. Walking, the St Jacques de Compostelle goes through the region. Many vineyards are open with tours available and sampling. Tour de France cycling routes in the area. Tour de France 2012 going through Marciac. Less than 1 hour to the Pyrenean ski slopes.
Children are welcomed in the Gers and are encouraged to partake in all the activities.
The Marciac area
The town is characteristic of the bastides in the area - central village square with the town hall a main feature, with the village shops clustered along the four sides of the square. Wide arched pavements allow dining out of doors in the summer, when music is piped around the square. The town convent (now the town hall and cinema) and church steeples are lit up at night.
It is known for its annual international jazz festival, which runs for a fortnight every summer. All music and arts are extremely well catered for in Marciac having a wonderful new theatre.
Marciac has its own fishing lake which is well stocked and well used.
The annual cycling, tour de France will be transiting through Marciac in July this year
