Local Area

Valence d’Agen – the local market town – is 15 minutes away and hosts bustling markets bursting with fresh produce. The stunning rolling countryside of the Gers (Gascony) lies to the south and west, and is dotted with medieval bastide villages, many with fabulous restaurants, chateaux and museums. For the adventurous, high wires amongst the trees can be found in the forest of Montech, about 40 minutes away. See: Agrip Aventure.

Further afield, two hours to the south, lie the Pyrenees (hill-walking in summer, ski resorts in winter). Two hours to the west is the Atlantic coast. Discover the sophisticated seaside resort of Arcachon and the truly spectacular Dune du Pyla – the highest sand dune in Europe. Consider a day-trip to Toulouse and Bordeaux – both wonderful French cities, steeped in history and culture.
