About Us

RĂ©ans, 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

It's Mother's Day in France on 28th May..


Wishing Happy Mother's Day French style....

Did you know that the celebration of Mothers' Day started in the early 20th century in the US and it is not related to other celebrations of Mothers and Motherhood e.g. Christian Mothering Sunday, Greet cult of Cybele, or the Roman festival of Hilaria. In fact it's a purely commercial event but it does remind us to show our appreciation for our Mothers (or even be appreciated and spoiled) at least once a year.
 In France Mother's Day is the last Sunday in May so we can celebrate our Mothers twice. How do you celebrate in your native country?
