Gers gites in southwest France are perfect for a relaxing holiday with family or friends. Enjoy the freedom of self catering accommodation to shop at local markets, try out restaurants in the many beautiful medieval towns and villages and visit a vineyard or two for wine tasting and to buy great wines at great prices! Spend the day in the regional capital Auch and visit the impressive Renaissance Cathedrale Sainte-Marie and the 14th century prison La Tour d'Armagnac. Chateau de Mauvezin is a lovely day out, especially for children, the costumed mannequins and room settings transport you back in time and the views from the battlements are breathtaking. Camp de Siege Medieval at Larressingle is also great fun; join the re-enactors to get to grips with the working siege weapons!
