Enjoy true holidays, a real break, in the Ténarèze, far from the hustle and bustle of your normal daily life : take part in family activities, learn all about wine with friends, daydream on the terrace…
Up up and away !
Do you dream of a ride in a hot air balloon ? Philipe offers unforgettable trips, tailor-made and timeless ! If its fine weather, let yourself succumb to the beauty of the places that are under your feet. Fly over our « Most beautiful villages of France » : the fortified village of Larressingle, Fourcès and Montréal-du-Gers, but also the Abbaye de Flaran, the vines of Château de Cassaigne…
An invitation to dillydallying
Take time to relax, one of the real pleasures of a holiday. We offer little corners of delight where you can take a nap and recharge your batteries in the heart of nature after a Gascon picnic : The locks at Graziac or Gauge, the lake in Montréal-du-Gers, Lagardère château are all places lulled by an unequalled peacefulness.
Don’t forget the sunscreen !
The Art of Time
When contemporary art and heritage meet… Chemins d’Art en Armagnac (Paths to Art in Armagnac) suggests that you discover 5 sites with different exhibitions, 5 artists and 5 ephemeral works presented in well-known or more discrete places in the Ténarèze.
Strolling in Montréal-de-Gers ? Take time to discover the l’atelier d’artistes Amadieu on the corner of a lane in the bastide. Let the original and figurative works in 3D that combine engraving, painting and sculpture surprise you.
The Gascon puck or nothing !
Boules ? Here we play Palet Gascon. This traditional ancestral game is played in the village squares, the ideal spot to start competing. To play, you need 1 skittle, 2 palets (pucks) and 3 coins and a few Gascons that are proud to teach you the particular techniques of this game.
The goal of the game is to knock over the skittle with the two palets in order that the three coins that were on the skittle fall as close as possible to the palets.
If you are interested in boules, don’t worry, as you just need to go to the boules pitch to confront our aficionados.
Along the Baïse
Let yourself be carried gently along by the River Baïse. Rent a canoe at the Leisure centre (Base de Loisirs) at Gauge and potter independently to appreciate the landscapes that are revealed little by little before your eyes.
Tour the gardens
Make the most of the remarkable setting of the Abbaye de Flaran, a true invitation to relax and let yourself be captivated by the thousands of scents that fill the air.
Strolling in Fourcès
Fourcès is the ideal place to stop and contemplate: its circular square, its arcades, the tower… a truly beautiful place to visit with its splendour and calm..
Every last weekend in April, the flower market takes over the village that is adorned with a thousand colours.
From May until November, you can hunt for rare objects and old books in the flea markets.
