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 LLC 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. 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

LLC garden group meeting 7th July 2016

Dear Gardeners

Our next outing takes place on Thursday 7th July 2016 at 2.30 pm

We will be visiting

Rue des Isserts, 47200 Marmande

The Jardins de Garonne were renamed the Jardins de Beauchamp in 2009 when the garden was awarded the 'Jardin Remarquable' classification.

There are various themed gardens including an English Garden, Italian garden, beautiful pond and lots more.Water plays an important part in the garden. A large pond has an oriental inspiration and is gorgeous when the water lilies are in full bloom.The Italian garden has long water rill with clipped box on either side and tall cypruses as well as roman style columns.

You can see and be inspired by pretty much everything for the garden from Japanese style ornaments and beautiful koi carp to topiaries, garden pottery and pergolas.

The garden centre, the Jardinerie Jay,  is a good one too and so once you have been inspired you can buy the plants

The garden and associated garden centre - the Jardinerie Jay can be found on the outskirts of Marmande.
