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

Garden visit

Lasbadies near Moncrabeau


 

Thursday 11th May.

 
We are delighted to be visiting this lovely garden, entirely created by  Alan and Jennifer Story
 Located on a hilltop site on the Lot et Garonne and Gers boundary, 4km from Moncrabeau, in 1998 the site was a field of wild flowers with a ruin needing much attention. To provide shelter in such an exposed situation the garden was divided into different spaces each protected by hedges or a structure to create garden rooms each with its own character. The rooms include a large cobbled area with rill, a fountain and herbaceous beds bordered by a white wisteria and rose walk on one side and a raised hornbeam hedge on the other. Other rooms include a smaller circular garden with sculpture, cypressus and more vibrant planting, a box parterre, a potager and a secluded space with pool and abri. The roooms wrap round the house and are linked by paths, grassed areas and hedges giving a strong structure to the garden throughout the year.
