The Midi-Pyrénées region
We are surrounded by the peaceful green rolling hills of southern Gascony with sunflowers in the winter and magnificent views of the Pyrenees in both winter and summer. Gascony is a relatively unspoilt region and local foodie specialities include foie gras, duck confit and Armagnac. We have some amazing artisans in this region of France who fill our larders with wonderful flavours and textures with a big emphasis on organic produce. Local festivals are a must visit in the summer months especially the world famous Marciac Jazz Festival first 2 weeks in August. Gascony was recently voted number 2 in the Daily Telegraph's 'World's top 20 places for the good life'. Wow
The Gers is the central department of Gascony in the Midi-Pyrenees, located just north of the central Pyrenees and since Napoleon times has been named after the Gers river which runs north-south through the department. It is largely agricultural and is the least densely populated department in France.
The Gers is sometimes referred to as the French Tuscany because of its gently rolling hills and old villages, including many "bastides" or fortified towns. Gers is separated from the Pyrénées by Comminges and Bigorre and the scenery is of rolling hills and glacier formed flat valleys with views of the Pyrénées from the southern hills.
The towns and villages tend to be small and far apart and the local economy is mainly agricultural - vineyards, cereals, cattle, and of course, ducks and geese for the famous Gascony preserves, pâtés and particularly foie gras.
The Gers is one of the least densely populated départments in France and there is no heavy industry or autoroutes so consequently it has some of the cleanest air in all of Europe. It is therefore no surprise that Gascons live longer than any other people in France.
