Additional Location Information
Walking - great area for walking with marked paths cross-crossing the region. Le Clozet is on a part of the pilgrim route of St James of Compostella that runs from Agen to Condom and passes at the side of our house. Our section is 8kms long and goes to Condom via La Romieu.
Water Activities - within 30 minutes are numerous man-made lakes (plan d'eau), many with sandy beaches. The nearest is at Castera Verduzan. There is also a large campsite at Lectoure, Lac des Trois Valles where one can enjoy a range of activities. Fishing is permitted in many of the irrigation lakes and rivers; lists of fishable sites and permits can be bought from any of the regions tourist offices.
Walibi Fun Park - near to Agen. This is a great family day out. Full of rides and activities for all ages, even scary ones, there are numerous bars and restaurants on-site. Not cheap but families benefit from a good group reduction. Money off vouchers in our gites.
Cycling - a number of cycles are available for guests at Le Clozet. For more serious cyclists bring your own as the region is quiet with little traffic. Safe for families with little children. Good off-road routes as well for mountain bikes. In high season bikes can also 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 18c Gasconne house. Many natural obstructions such as streams, lakes, trees and valleys, and dotted with numerous bunkers. Classed as a 9+9 with many different re-start points, it gives the impression of being a real 18 hole course. Classed as the ninth best 9 hole 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 Golf 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 Massaube and the 9+9 Golf du Chateau de Pallane at Tissac.

Car and Motorcycle Racing - the Paul Armagnac Circuit at Nogaro, 65 kms 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.
