Offering a happy cocktail of gourmet treats, sunshine and festivals, Gers will soon have you under its spell. Come here for balcony roads and horizons of hills bathed in light and bristling with cypress trees; explore its towns and villages, from bastides to castelnaux. Auch, the picturesque capital, is dominated by a sumptuous Renaissance cathedral. Around Lectoure, the landscapes of Lomagne have an air of Tuscany about them. Further west, don't miss Larressingle, which has the distinction of being France's smallest fortified village. In Marciac, the sound of jazz floats in the air during its summer festival, and Condom is renowned for its Armagnac stores. Gers is also a terroir that produces specialities that you should try out: what a pleasure it is to linger on a café terrace sipping a Floc de Gascogne, before tucking into a dinner of goose, duck or melon, pride and joy of the local gastronomy scene!
