About Us

Réans, Armagnac, 32 Gers, France
Our objective is to promote friendship between women of all nationalities living in Gascony, SW France, to share our interests and to offer help when needed. The Club started in 2008, with twenty English ladies living in Gascony, using a foreign language and experiencing a new life. Since then, several different groups have been added and our membership has grown into the hundreds, with new ladies moving to the area and ladies who have lived here a while, who have discovered us, who want to make new acquaintances and discover new areas of interest. Today we have eleven nationalities, and our speaking/working language is English. The GLC meets on the second Tuesday of each month, excluding July and August.Every member receives an email each month, giving the name of the restaurant, the chosen, menu and a booking form. In 2014, we became a non-profit making Association, known as Ladies Lunch Club de l’Armagnac and was re-named in 2019 to Gascogne Ladies Club. Our annual subscription fee of 10 € is payable in January each year. Each member of the Club may participate in some or all of our various groups

April 2013 lunch report and May luncheon

wonderful turnout for the lunch venue at the Tour de Termes

In all a record 50 ladies sat down to lunch

Our menu was a delicious and unusual mustard soup

followed by the main course of chicken with spicy peppers and rice

and dessert of rich chocolate mousse with orange strips

All prepared and cooked by Boyd and Jetske and ably served by the 
hardworking duo of Paula and Dee.

Whilst coffee was being served we were given an informative, interesting and amusing talk on the history of Termes and the tower by a husband and wife team - Fiona and Olivier. 

Questions were asked on the talk and the answer had to be signified by hands being placed on the head or raised. 

It seems we had all paid attention (or at least followed the lead of the Mayor of Termes) as we got the answers correct (mostly!).

Thank you to Boyd, Jetske, Paul, Dee, Fiona and Olivier for making our lunch such a great success and thanks too to Ginster and Ping for the photos.
