GASCOGNE LADIES CLUB (GLC) -
We aim to act as a link between women of all nationalities, for social contact and the exchange of information, the organisation of various events including exhibitions, markets, creative workshops, and to share our regional knowledge of life in Gascony, 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
We are lucky enough to have a rare opportunity to visit the lovely private garden of Alex Constantine at his home called 'Perron' near Moncrabeau.
This is a landscaped, park-like setting reminiscent of the gardens of "Capability Brown". There is also a parterre in front of the house, many roses and specimen trees with an attractive pool area and fine views.
Tea will be served after the visit.
The house 'Perron' lies about 2 km to the east of the village of Moncrabeau.
Moncrabeau is between Condom and Nerac on the D930. Turn off the D930 onto the D219, which will take you through Moncrabeau. Staying on the D219, it will take you about five minutes and you’ll find 'Perron' on you right. We look forward to seeing you there.
