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 Walk 6 - Caupenne d'Armagnac







Our last walk for 2018 took place on Friday 28th December.  It was a moderate circular walk of 11.5 kms (with a variant of 8 kms) starting at the small village of Caupenne d'Armagnac which is located about 5 kms from Nogaro.

We walked past the church and the ancient 'lavoir' following a small lane.  Heading up towards the tracks, we passed a very large 'wetland' nature reserve which wasn't at all wet so unfortunately no migrating birds to see but it is possible to walk-around!


This was fairly flat walking (unusual for the Gers!) and we did see distant views of the Nogaro aerodrome and racing circuit en route.  We continued northerly towards Salles d'Armagnac and once we had crossed the Midou we did start to climb and then we made our way back to Caupenne.
At least we might have lost a few kilos from all the indulgent xmas food!  

If you would like to join this group or any other - please email

November Lunch




THIS IS A CHANGE TO THE ORIGINAL VENUE


Bonjour Ladies

We are delighted to invite you to the next lunch, which will be at:

 Le Commerce in Estang on
 Tuesday 13th November



We hope that you can join us as this very popular venue.  Please can you complete the emailed form to register your interest or to let us know if you are unable to attend.

Please note that this is a change from the recently advertised venue as we have had problems obtaining a satisfactory menu (and still don't have one).  Therefore, we asked Le Commerce at Estang to help us out and they have agreed to the following menu at very short notice, .  We are very grateful to them for helping us out at such short notice,  even though they are holiday the week before our lunch. 

The menu is as follows:

Tourte aux epinards et Fromage de Chevere 
(spinach and goat's cheese torte)

Roti de veau, haricots blancs 
(roast veal with white beans)

ou

Pave de Saumon 
(salmon)


Soupe de poires, glace vanilla et Chantilly 
(Pear soup with vanilla ice cream and Chantilly cream)

The cost is €18 including wine (without tea or coffee)

The deadline for booking is Sunday 4th November and I will be giving final, definitive numbers on Friday 9th November.  As usual I will send out the list of everyone who has booked before the 4th November.  Sorry for the short timelines - they are because of the circumstances as explained above.

Details of booking
  • The deadline for booking is Sunday 4th November
  • There is unlikely to be a cap on numbers - but it is helpful if you can book early so that I can discuss numbers if there are a lot of people interested
  • If you miss the deadline, we should be able to add a few extra people when I give the definitive numbers on Friday 9th November. 
  • You are likely to be charged if you cancel after the 9th November and will definitely be charged if you cancel on or after Sunday 11th November
  • Please reply to the email address at the bottom of this message if you are having problems with the form or feel that it may not have worked.  I will add your details manually.
  • The cost is €18, which includes wine but does not include tea or coffee
  • I will send a list of attendees before the deadline on 4th November
  • Please bring your cheque for €18 made payable to Ladies Lunch Club de l'Armagnac or cash in an envelope with your name on it.  Your help with this is much appreciated as it helps to speed up the booking process
The next LLC lunch will be Tuesday 11th December at Le Pigeonneau, Riscle.  This will be our special Christmas lunch

Other club activities and members notice board

I will send a separate email with all of our activities in November.  Please drop me a line if you have anything that you would like to be added.
