About Us

My photo
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

Garden visit on Thursday 3 July 2014 for LLC Members

Dear Members of the LLC Gardengroup,

Our next garden visit on Thursday 3 July 2014  will be to

Ferme de Lagrance, 
Chez Pierrette et Hubert Labenelle

32460 Le Houga 
(on the CD125 towards Monguilhem and Toujouse)

As we all enjoyed the picnic so much at our June visit at Chateau de Momas, we have decided to picnic again at Le Houga. 

The garden doesn't open until 3.30pm when the owner will give us a tour, so we suggest meeting at the lac at Le Houga for our picnic from 1pm.

Apparently the gate is often closed which means you have to drive round the lake to reach the picnic area.

Please bring a picnic, your own plate, cutlery, glass etc and perhaps a picnic chair/table/rug.

Exceptionally garden visit is later than usual. 
Picnic from 1pm and the nearby garden visit at 3.30pm. 
There is a charge of 3 Euro and the correct change would help, if possible!

Please let me know if you can come and whether you'€™ll be bringing a sweet or savoury dish.

Thanks and look forwarding to seeing everyone next week and keep fingers crossed for good weather again.
For any further information please see our LLC garden group page on this blog.

June 2014 Ladies Luncheon in Marciac - invitation to our members

The June 2014 Ladies Luncheon will be held on 

Tuesday 10th June at 

at 12.30 for 1.00 pm

To conclude the first half of the year, before our summer break, we have arranged our June lunch at 
Le Café Zik on the edge of the beautiful lake in Marciac. 

Restaurant - Le Café Zik Restaurant du Lac

Many of you will remember it from our past two Christmas lunches, but we thought it would be nice to try it in the summer, to give everyone the chance to spend some time, either walking around the lake, or partaking of one of the activities on the water! 
Or indeed visiting the town.

We are very pleased to announce that our new (Member)Name Badges are ready, and will be handed out at the lunch. We hope you will like this new, simple European design.

We look forward to welcoming you at Café Zik, but should you be unable to attend, please remember there will be no lunch in July and August. 
We therefore wish you an enjoyable summer wherever you will be, and hope you will find the list of activities (issued separately)useful. 

We recommence on the second Tuesday of September 2014.

Filet de daurade, 
risotto et beurre de crustaces
