- 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

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
