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

Garden group November 8th, 2017 at Palmeraie de Sarthou

Dear Gardeners

For our November outing we will be going to the wonderful, exotic, 

Plan Palmeraie Parc

Jardin Exotique en Gascogne

Because the gardens are closed on Thursdays we have arranged to go on: 

Wednesday 8th November, 
meeting there at 2pm

This garden was named a “Jardin Remarquable” in 2006 and The gardens at the Palmeraie are of great interest to plant lovers and gardeners with many tropical species, palms, banana, bamboo -  flourishing. 
 There is a also a restored Gascon farm house in which one can see how the typical farmer would have lived with his family - complete with animals and a collection of metal sculptures set in the garden. Mostly made from scrap and machine parts these represent real and fantastic animals. 
Then there is the woodland walk round the "prairie" and another surprise of two crashed aircraft in the trees !

There will be a charge of €6.50 per person which includes a guided visit and tea and cake afterwards, this is for 10 people, for less it will be € 7.00. 

take the D48 road from Aignan to Nogaro, after about 3 k turn right onto D 111 following the sign to Jardin exotique, after about 2 k there is a right turn. (Hidden in the hedge ) to Palmeraie du Sarthou, this leads you direct to the garden, turn right again by the bins.
