- Ladies Club d'Armagnac
- 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

Firstly, I would like to thank all those who came on our first LLC walk around Ju Belloc yesterday. We were certainly lucky with the weather and it was relatively cool - despite the looming black clouds and distant thunder - so maybe Friday 13th is lucky after all! We all had a good walk and talk - although I'm not sure what we did the most!
For our second LLC walk, I would like to propose an easy (7kms) circular walk around Sabazan near Aignan. Sabazan is a pretty little village with its half moat which dominates the valley of the Midour. On our walk, we will have excellent views of the valley and the Pyrenees (if they are out!) We will pass by the lovely old 15th century church of St John the Baptist (some of the inside is classified 13th century) and also some of the vineyards of St Mont. I believe wine tasting is available at the Chateau and winery. We will also pass close by to the Palmeraie de Sarthou. I will provide a map and directions in both English and French.
We will meet at 10.00 am
on Friday 10th August.
I very much look forward to seeing you all.
If you would like to come but didn't receive an email, please contact:

The LLC is proposing to launch a new activity to include walking and our first LLC walk will take place on
Friday 13th July
This is an easy circular walk (about 8 kms) and should take you no more than 2.5 hours to complete.
It starts at Ju Belloc and walks through a donkey sanctuary - the donkeys are friendly! We then skirt along the River Adour following the Greenwich Meridian Line. We turn off towards Belloc and then travel back northwards parallel to the D173 on footpaths towards our starting point. We should see pretty flora and fauna as we pass through ancient woodlands and should see the ancient 'lavoir' and mill near Ju Belloc.
We will supply a map in English and French for this walk.
If you would like to participate in this walk but feel that it is too long; it is possible to walk part of it (say through the donkey sanctuary and along the River Adour) but you would have to re-trace your steps back to the start. This would be about 4 kms.
