Outdoor Dining Area
Gascony, or The Gers department, is one of the most rural regions of France with stunning landscapes, beautiful local villages and towns and a fantastic reputation for its gastronomy with local markets displaying a great variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese and meat as well as the unmissable <i>foie gras</i> and <i>confits</i>. The closest facilities to Les Tournesols are in the little village of Saint Clar where you will find a supermarket, small shops and restaurants. Visit on a Thursday morning for the village market and make sure you pick up some Lomagne white garlic which is in season from July to December. The market towns of Fleurance and Lectoure are a little further but amazing places to pick up all sorts of local delights and their weekly morning markets, both a short drive away. The city of Auch can be reached in under an hour with its old quarter raised high above the Gers river and its incredible cathedral. There are other pretty villages and hamlets in the area to explore. Three of Frances ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Fourcès, Larresingle and Montréal du Gers can be visited in a day and the town of Condom, with further amenities, including a Michelin-starred restaurant as well as boat rental, is only forty minutes away. There is so much to do in this beautiful, rural part of Gascony; cycling, golf, horse-riding and hiking. Head to Beaucaire to hire canoes on the River Baise and a little further south at Castéra-Verduzan there is a lake for swimming with waterslides. This is also Grand Armagnac country, if you have a taste for the drink then there are plenty of opportunities to visit local producers and guided tours as well as tastings can be arranged.
