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

October Lunch

Dear Ladies

I need to send this invitation out now for the October lunch.  I apologize that it is sent out before the September lunch, but this is necessary to give you time to respond and because we have to give restaurant numbers 10 days before the lunch.   We have had a very good, high quality meal at the Continental before and hope that you find the menu that we have selected interesting and of a similar standard.   
Details of the lunch
The lunch will take place at 12:00 on Tuesday 9th October at Le Continental in Condom We hope that you can join us at this venue, which in the north of the Gers.  Please can you complete the form in your email to register your interest (or to let us know if you are unable to attend).
Please book early to ensure that we reserve sufficient place for everyone.  It is unlikely that there will be a cap on numbers for this venue.  The deadline for bookings is Monday 24th September.  As usual, I will send the list of attendees before the closing date. 
The cost of the meal is €20, which includes wine and coffee.  Because this is at the top of our range, we will also include a raffle ticket to make this an all inclusive price.  We look forward to welcoming you from 12:00.
The chef of the restartant « Les Jardins de la Baise » proposes the following menu :
La Salade d’Artichauts Marinée et Queues d’Ecrevisses (Marine Artichoke salad with crayfish tails)
Le Pavé de Truite Landais, Suce Beurre Blanc (pave of Landais trout with white, butter sauce)
Le Cochon Fermier, Sauce Pruneaux d’Agen (Farm pork with prune sauce)
La Craquant Crème Brulée aux Fruits Rouges

LLC Walk 4 - Valence-sur-Baise

Dear Walkers

Our next walk will take place on Friday 5th October starting at 10.30 am We will meet up and start the walk at the Abbaye de Flaran (near Valence-sur-Baise).  It is a moderately easy circular walk of nearly12 kms and is a slightly modified version of the official walk to make it a bit shorter!

The walk will take us through ancient woodlands and to the ancient lock of Graziac and then we continue up towards the village of Herret (village fleuri) with its aerodrome.  There are fabulous views of the Gers countryside on the ridge just outside the village.  We then continue back towards the Abbey with more far-reaching views of Valence with its towers and distant chateaux.

Please note that we do have to cross the busy D930 Condom/Valence main road twice and the walk is 70% tracks and 30% small roads.

Nearer the time, there will be a reminder email and maps and directions will be provided in both English and French. 

Re-walk of Blaziert circular 10kms - easy with challenges

There will be a re-walk of the circular Blaziert walk on Thursday 11th October starting at 10.30 am for those that would like to do it again or for the first time!

We can have a picnic afterwards for those that are able to stay.

If you would like to join either of these walks, please email 

Looking forward to seeing everyone.
