Things to know about the Gers
Vacation rentals in the Gers - A hilly landscape
The Gers belongs to the Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées region and has a population of around 190,000 inhabitants. Several hosting solutions are available to you in this department. These include, for example, intimate rentals and studios located in the historic centers of the prefecture Auch, Fleurance or L'Isle-Jourdain. Among the other Vacation rentals in the Gers, you can book the rural cottage of your choice and enjoy an unforgettable stay, as it borders the western part of the Landes and the eastern part of the departments of Haute-Garonne and Tarn-et-Garonne. It also borders the Pyrenees-Atlantiques and Hautes-Pyrenees to the south and the Lot-et-Garonne to the north. The territory is characterised in the north by fertile plains in the Rivière-Basse region. When we head south from the Gers to Astarac, around Masseube, we cross the most mountainous area of the department, where there are a few rivers including the Gers and the Arrats. Then there is Lomagne, located in the northeast, which is characterised by large uniform areas of cultivated land. It is a natural region marked by the predominance of limestone and its largest city is Lectoure. The landscapes of the Gers are also diversified in the Tenareze, there are different kinds of wooded formations with a high concentration of oaks and cedars. Larressingle, Sarrant and Fourcès are some of the most beautiful villages to see when travelling to the southwest of France.
The discovery of the markets of the Gers
Among the enriching activities, you can take an oenological visit and participate in a tasting of the Corolle des vins de pays du Condomois. Other entertainment is aimed particularly at families. One thinks for example of those offered at the Lac de l'Uby leisure center in Cazaubon. This site is distinguished by its shaded park, it offers many leisure activities such as pedal boats and playgrounds, and if you want to bring back some of the best food in the region from your stay, visit the various markets organised throughout the department. You can discover the colorful displays at Marciac on Wednesdays and enjoy the entertainment on Thursdays at Eauze. In the south, the black Bigorre pig, also known as the Gascon black pig, is particularly appreciated. If you want to taste a second typical dish during your stay, there is the garbure gersoise, a thick soup made with candied meat and vegetables.

Top 5 must-see sites in the Gers
1. St. Mary's Cathedral. This Gothic-style monument undoubtedly remains the tourist attraction of the Gers prefecture. Outside, it is its tower towers that first attract the attention of visitors. In his den, we first admire his monumental choir. Then we let ourselves be enchanted by the majestic character of Arnaud de Moles' stained glass windows.
2. The collegiate church of La Romieu. This 14th century building includes the cloister, the deanery and the cardinal's palace. The Square Tower and its very unusual staircase are among the special features to be discovered during the visit, as is the impressive Tower of the Sacristy. Among the Vacation rentals in the Gers, a number of them are located around Romieu.
3. The gardens of Coursiana. The four gardens offer you a unique experience. First of all, it is an amalgam of perennial and shrub species grouped together in a space called the English garden. Then there is the arboretum, which houses very rare trees and plants, and a superb collection of nationally classified lime trees. There is also an area dedicated to medicinal, aromatic and perfume plants.
4- Flaran Abbey. First of all, it attracts visitors thanks to its excellent state of conservation. The architectural ensemble includes the Romanesque church and the chapter house, a place where all the community's affairs were discussed in the past. The other treasures to be seen in the heart of this abbey are the Gothic cloister and the sacristy.
