|Why this location?||We area in an area known as Little Tuscany. Rolling hills, huge blue skies, starry nights, sun flower fields stretching for miles alongside vineyards, historic bastide towns and villages, distinct signs of Roman settlements, no large cities, little traffic, no urban stress - gentle, true French rural bliss.Traditions remain strong. Far more tranquil than Provence in the south east, more green and abundant- it is a secret the people of the Gers want to maintain.
The Chateau lies between Condom and historic Nérac which has a wonderful Saturday market and close to the St Jacques de Compostella routes on which you will see many pilgrims walking through. The chateau is close to tourist villages of Fources, Lectoure Montreal, Larressingle. Most villages have weekly markets with local produce. The area is famous for its foie gras, armagnac and increasingly wine. We have been dubbed "hidden Bordeaux". Toulouse, Bordeaux, the coast and mountains are all within 2 hours.
