Introducing Gascony

Gascony refers to ancient territories that ceased to exist after the French Revolution and encompasses the triangle west of Toulouse and south of the Garonne River. The home of d'Artagnan, immortalised by Alexandre Dumas, Gascony is known for its country fairs and festivals, notably Jazz in Marciac. Gascons are welcoming and hospitable and make Gascony the perfect location for a holiday house or family home.

"The Gers, one of the most beautiful départements in France, is the heart of Gascony. On a hot August day, sipping a glass of local rosé wine under the shade of walnut trees, watching butterflies fluttering over the wild meadow flowers, is to enjoy la France profonde at its unspoiled, peaceful best. Gascony is holiday heaven, there is something for everyone to enjoy.”

Lindy Woodhead, The Spectator
