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

Bookclub meeting March 2015

We felt the ‘Sister’s’ theme in the last bookclub meeting went well and we all chose interesting books.  I have listed the books below from the people who attended. 
Thank you Jill for the delicious cakes.

For March bookclub,  we are meeting on 
Thursday 19th, 2015 
and the book suggested by Sue Martin is 

Song of Time by Ian MacLeod.


April’s 2015 bookclub meeting will be after Easter on Thursday 16th when we are discussing Carol’s choice of 
Middle Age: A Romance by Joyce Carol Oates.


It would be good to choose another theme, perhaps for June or July, so any ideas welcome.  Jill suggested some poetry which might be a nice idea – let’s discuss next meeting.

‘Sister’s’ Books:
