Since the health crisis we just experienced, French and foreigners alike are happily rediscovering the taste of vacation in France. And one of the most successful regions is the southwest, and in particularthe Gers, an authentic and characteristic department of this part of France. If the French and tourists are discovering or rediscovering vacations in France, they are also turning to renting a house, a gite or a bed and breakfast, for a weekend or to spend a summer vacation with the family, in a quiet, warm and welcoming environment. Our gîte villages fully meet these expectations.

In France, all departments are beautiful and each has its own particularity. The Gers, which the film “Happiness is in the Meadow” made known, is indeed a department that invites happiness.

As you stroll along the small roads, you will encounter Gascon castles, perched villages, Gallo-Roman stacks, dovecotes, Romanesque churches. The infinite wealth of landscapes and tourist sites will enchant you.
