Surroundings

The Gers region is perhaps one of the best kept secrets of France. Because of the rolling landscape of this area (also known as the Gascogne) it is often referred to as "the Tuscany of France" and not without reason: Sun-soaked farmhouses with colourfully painted shutters nestle in stunning fields of sunflowers and leafy vineyards, here and there dotted with churches, chapels or beautiful small villages.


Bloemenmarkt in Fleurance... There is more than just the countryside to see of course: the nearest attraction, within walking distance of our campsite, is the picturesque village of Lavardens with its impressive castle.

base de loisirs Castera Verduzan In the spa town Castéra-Verduzan, a ten minute drive away, you can visit the thermal baths, the casino, or the recreational lake with a small beach.
In addition, you will find several restaurants, a baker, a butcher, and a small supermarket.

More shops and supermarkets can be found 15km away in Fleurance, which is very busy on Tuesday mornings, because of the weekly market in and around the old city centre.

Auch is the capital of Gers, and also the largest city in the immediate surroundings, with its "Centre Historique", the impressive cathedral and the Musée des Jacobins, all just a 24km drive from our campsite.

Fources... Other sights in the vicinity: the spa town of Lectoure with its famous 'bleus de pastel', Larressingle, which is the smallest fortress village of France, Valence-sur-Baïse with the Abbey of Flaran, and the medieval village of Fourcès.

Other places of interest: La Romieu with the Collégiale and the magnificent Gardens of Coursiana, Condom with the famous cathedral and the Musée de l'Armagnac, and Cassaigne, with its fabulous château.


A little more than a one hour drive away you will find the beautiful city of Toulouse, and the famous pilgrimage town of Lourdes, a two hour drive from the campsite, is certainly worth a daytrip as well.

Restaurants

There are many restaurants in the region, from gastronomical standouts to more casual brasseries and pizzerias, too many to mention here. We will be happy to provide reccommendations and to arrange a table reservation for you.

For extended (English) information on the Gers we would like to refer you to the website of our friends at campsite La Brouquère in Gondrin, not far from here.
