Travel between the UK and Gascony is easy…

 

Gascony is easily accessible by car - especially using the Channel Tunnel. From Calais, it will take around 10 hours' driving on high quality ‘autoroutes’ to reach Auch, the capital of Gascony. Alternatively, you could break your journey about halfway, and stay the night in the Loire valley to visit the great C16 chateaux that comprise this wonderful ‘World Heritage’ area. There are ferry crossing options, with the shortest route also being to Calais. Gascony is normally quick and easy to reach by plane or train, going to major stations and airports such as those serving the beautiful cities of Toulouse and Bordeaux.

 

Climate & Countryside…

Gascony has a great year-round climate, with warm and temperate spring, summer and autumn months. With practically no pollution, Gascony is one of the healthiest destinations in Europe - for both the mind and the body. The beautiful, unspoilt countryside of rolling hills and valleys offers plenty of scope for expeditions and exploring, the chance to enjoy an active holiday at your own pace. This is ideal for days spent by the pool or exploring ancient villages and markets full of local produce, then dining al fresco. The majestic Pyrenees Mountains dominate the southern horizon, providing excellent skiing in winter and summer hill-walking with the wildflowers and mountain birds.

Food & Wine…

Gascony is renowned for its local delicacies such as the many recipes for duck. Flavours are rich, varied and healthy, food is generally unprocessed and sourced locally, with gently-reared tender red meat, really tasty chicken, the famous ‘Toulouse Sausage’, 'Cassoulet', a vast range of pâtés and 'charcuterie', and of course traditional ‘foie-gras’. Local markets are full of fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, patisserie and croissants, and a huge range of cheeses. Wine lovers have always known Gascony for its wide range of excellent country wines, the intriguing aperitif 'Floc de Gascogne' and its signature brandy 'Armagnac'.

 

Working Partners

We work with a variety of other local Gascon businesses to provide our guests with a customised personal service and a wide range of holiday opportunities and experiences.

These businesses are our ‘Working Partners’. We introduce you, our Guests, to the service providers you want to use. The commercial arrangements are then made directly between you and our Working Partner. The latest service to be included is Pyrenees hiking/bird watching. Go to our Working Partners page to see what else is available.
