A taste of Gascony
The Gers department is the most rural of the country. It offers a visual serenity which seems effortlessly matched by the even temperedness of its inhabitants. Over the years, the Gers has maintained a solid reputation for its gastronomy. Numerous local markets display a large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses and farm poultry. Of course the unmissible foie gras, confits and magrets of duck are simply first rate. It is no wonder so many chefs find a continuous inspiration to nurture and develop a food tradition that proposes constant delights.
A sip of tradition
Another source of pride is obviously wine. From the round and fruity Côtes de Gascogne and Côtes de Saint-Mont to the more powerful Madiran, not forgetting wine and Armagnac-based aperitifs like Pousse Rapière and Floc de Gascogne, the Gers represents an ideal for wine aficionados and the management of the Castelnau will be all too happy to organise tastings for you and your guests.
A land untouched
The Gers is a rural department turned towards agriculture and the preservation of nature. This environmental bond has kept villages alive over time, and local heritage has also been maintained. There are a multitude of exceptional sites to visit such as châteaux, market towns and bastides, museums, and a noteworthy botanical garden a few minutes away, just to name a few.
Golf courses, riding and cycling are all available in the local area and for those who prefer something special, champagne balloon rides can be arranged.
