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 practically no pollution, Gascony is one of the healthiest destinations in Europe. 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. You can explore ancient villages or markets full of local produce, then dine al fresco through long summer evenings. The majestic Pyrenees Mountains offer excellent skiing in winter and hill-walking in summer with the wildflowers and eagles.

Food & Wine…

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