The Midi-Pyrénées region

The Gers is a gastronomic heaven specialising in Foie Gras, Confit and Magret de Canard, which can be sampled in many of the good local, inexpensive restaurants.
There are many bastide villages / towns in the vicinity ,including Fleurance, Condom, and Lectoure.
The property is situated amidst rolling countryside with spectacular views. It really is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Ideal for walkers or keen cyclists.
St Léonard is a medieval village and still boasts a very impressive chateau and church. Situated on the crest of a small hill it looks out over the surrounding farmland. The village holds it annual festival on the second week of July.
Here is a selection of activities you may wish to do during your stay at Emperus.
Walking – Great area for walking with marked paths criss-crossing the region.
Water activities –there is a very good water sport centre at St Clar with sandy beaches and water slides. There is also a restaurant and snack bar on site. Fishing is permitted in many of the irrigation lakes and rivers – lists of fishing sites and permits can be bought from any of the region’s tourist offices.
Walibi Water Fun Park – near to Agen. This is a great family day out. Full of rides and activities for all ages. There are numerous bars and restaurants on-site. Not cheap but families benefit from a good group reduction.
Cycling - Bicycles can be hired at Lectoure. For more serious cyclists bring your own as the region is quiet with very little traffic - safe for families with little children. Good off-road routes as well for mountain bikes. In high season bikes can be hired at Lectoure. Labastide d'Armagnac, 45 kms away, is well worth a visit. It has a small chapel, Notre-Dame-des-Cyclistes – which is France's own official sanctuary for racers.
Golf clubs – 4 courses within 15 - 45 mins, nearest being the well rated Golf de Fleurance which is built around an 18th century Gascon house. Classed as a 9+9 with many different re-start points, it gives the impression of being a real 18 hole course. It is classed as the ninth best 9 hole course in France. Due to the wonderful Gers climate, it is open all year. It also has a good restaurant with special golfers' menus starting at 10 Euros. Other courses are Gold Club de Guinlet near Eauze; the 18-hole Golf d'Auch-Embats which also has a good restaurant. The 9 hole Golf de la Martines near L’Isles Jourdain, The 9+9 Golf de Gascogne near Masseube and the 9+9 Golf du Chateau de Pallane at Tissac.
Horse riding – there are several local centres, including Laplume and La Romieu.
Tennis – nearest courts at Fleurance; Large tennis complex at Condom opposite the new outdoor swimming pool.
Quad-biking – about 25 mins from the house, near Roquelaure, to the north of Auch.
Horse-racing and Trotting – nearest course is at Castera-Verduzan, Another large course is near to Beaumont de Lomagne.
Car and Motorcycle racing – Circuit Paul Armagnac at Nogaro, 50 miles south west, is a modern challenging circuit. Events most of the year. Club days are good where you see amateurs flogging their pride and joy around the track.
Flying – Good flying clubs at all the local airports, Agen and Auch. You can also learn to parachute at Agen. Hang-gliding and para-gliding at St Clar..
Antiques and Bric a Brac – Every town has at least one brocante. Many fairs throughout the year. In the season you can visit an outdoor “Vide Grenier” a type of car boot sale. Have done them myself and they are great fun, there are still bargains to be had.
