The Gers is the capital for producing frois gras which is served in most restaurants. The region is also where D'artagnan the musketeer lived and in Lupiac you can visit the museum. Its close proximity to Spain offers a big spanish influence and you will find a bull ring in most local towns. The gers has numerous opportunity for fishing, in the lakes and the Adour River, permits can be purchased locally. There is Golf at Eauze and Pallane with 18 and 9 hole golfing, practice drive, putting greens, pools and restaurants. www.golf-midi-pyrenees.com/english. The Pyrenees have all to offer, rambling, climbing, canoeing, caving and skiing in the winter. Lourdes is also very close and worth a visit. The Atlantic coast known for its surfing is only 1 hour away, and biarritz offers a lovely day out, with sea food restaurants galore.

25 Sep 2011
Not knowing truly what to expect, our stay at the wine lodge was a real pleasure. We had everything we needed and felt right at home (among the corn fields, vines and sun flowers).
As the sun shined and the bbq sizzled, a great calmness filled our lives.
We still miss it and cannot recommend an extended break in this region enough...
