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

LLC Walk 9 Aignan etc

Dear Walkers

For our next walk, I propose a series of 3 circular walks very close to each other and the theme is 'lakes and forest'.  The dogs will love them and we will too!  None are very long and most of the walks are on woodland trails.  We will meet on

Friday 8th March at 11.00 am 

at the Aignan lake for the start of the first walk.

1.  Aignan - 6 kms (Estimated time < 2h)

This walk takes us from the lake of Aignan through the pretty forest and out on a ridge where we have fantastic views of both Aignan and Sabazan.  This is also a good place for our picnic lunch.  There is a café but it may not be open out of season.

2Bouzon-Gellenave - 5 kms 
(Estimated time 1.5h - start time 14.00h)

Just up the road from Aignan off the D48 lies Gellenave.  We follow a pretty forest trail below the church of St Go and up to the sweet chapel of Bouzonnet.  We then cut through the vineyards with more splendid views of Sabazan and the Aignan ridge where we have just left!

3.  Termes d'Armagnac - 5 kms 
(Estimated time 1.5h - start time 16.00h)

Just up the road from Bouzon-Gellenave again on the D48 is Termes d'Armagnac.  It is known for its medieval festival/enactments in July.  From the medieval chateau/tower, we follow a track across fields into the woodlands and continue along another ridge with fabulous views before returning back to the village.

These are 3 separate walks and we will have to drive between them but you do have a choice to do any or all of them.  I would suggest that you bring something to eat if you are planning on all 3!

Re-Walk Lagraulet (12 kms)- 
Wednesday 13th March at 11.00 am

Lagraulet is a very pretty hill-top village with splendid views of the Gers countryside located between Gondrin and Montreal-du-Gers.  On this circular walk there are 2 variants - the main walk is 12 kms; variant (1) is 8 kms and variant (2) is 10 kms - so there is plenty of choice!  There is a steep incline back into the village at the end of the walk but variant (1) does not use this route so is therefore much easier.

If you would like to participate in any of these walks and are not a member of the Walking Group, please email

and your name will be added to the mailing list for any future walks.  Partners and dogs are welcomed into the Group and directions/maps will be emailed to you.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
