WEDDING VENUES, TOWNS, VILLAGES & LANDSCAPES OF GASCONY
[ut_one_half] Wedding Venues, Town’s, Villages & Landscapes of Gascony. Gascony, – that vaguely defined area of the South West corner of France, stretches from Bordeaux South to the Spanish border and the Pyrenees and East towards Toulouse. It’s a beautiful part of France with it’s rolling hills and (in the Summer), fields of sunflowers with a rich culture & cuisine including; d’Artagnan of The Three Musketeers fame plus also the home of armagnac and foie gras. The area includes; the Aquitaine région (départements of Landes, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, south and west of Gironde, and south of Lot-et-Garonne) and the Midi-Pyrénées région (départements of Gers, Hautes-Pyrénées, southwest of Tarn-et-Garonne, and west of Haute-Garonne). [/ut_one_half] [ut_one_half_last] Featured in this post are images mostly from the département of Gers including; the regional market town of Condom, the bastide villages of Fources, Larresingle, Terraube and Lavardens. These pictures were taken between visiting various wedding venues in a recent trip, but as it was early June, no sunflowers just yet! Want a recommendation for a local chateau? Chateau de Lisse in nearby Lot-et-Garonne is beautiful, spacious yet intimate. Another beautiful nearby venue is situated in Couloume Mondebat and is Chateau d’Arlens with weddings run and coordinated by Sally Mayo. Looking for an entire ‘wedding village’?! Then look no further than the absolutely stunning Castelnau des Fieumarcon. [/ut_one_half_last]
