Activities

Directly around the house are gently sloping hills and on a clear day, the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees are visible (1 ½ hour drive).
On Monday and Saturday there is a farmers’ market in Mirande (4km/2,5mi), on Thursday in Auch (26km/17mi). Ask us about a complete listing of markets and brocantes.
Lourdes is about 1 ½ hour drive south of Mirande, and the Pilgrim’s Trail to Santiago de Compostela is not very far from our house either. During the summer, various festivals are organized, i.e. the Country-Western Festival in Mirande and the world-famous Jazz Festival in Marciac (20km/17 mi), wwww.jazzinmarciac.com) in July and August. There are many swimming lakes in the area (also a nice pool in Mirande called Ludina) and 3 golf courses, one only 15 minutes away at the beautiful Golfchateau ‘La Pallanne’ (18-hole). Or how about renting an electric bicycle from CYCLOMOUV in Auch (they deliver to our house)? Motorbikes are welcome. We have room for about 8 in our barn (look for ideas at : http://www.lerepairedesmotards.com/roadbook/)

Treatments for guests against stress, pain relief and for support of the immune system (guests can make a reservation upon arrival or at time of reservation) based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Zen-Shiatsu (Japanese acupressure points massage). Practice at the domaine or in Auch. For further information please contact:charles@domaineamarmande.fr, https://www.linkedin.com/in/charles-aronson

Culinary and wine

Each morning as of 09.00-11.00 a delicious, almost all organic breakfast is served for our bed & breakfast guests including home made yogurts and jams.
Drinks “special Gersois” besides the famous Armagnac are, Le Pousse-Rapière (Armagnac and a vin sauvage=bubbles) and Floc the Gascogne (liquor which tastes well together with Foie grass). Most of the wine areas are in the west of the Gers, i.e. the well-known Madiran and Saint Mont area. Of course we can let you taste these wines. You can choose to drink a glass of wine from our wine selection in the Salon Rouge. You simply write down what you have consumed and at the end of your visit we settle the bill with you. The region’s specialities of the Midi-Pyrénées are amongst other things Armagnac, Gascogne wines (like Madiran), violet garlic from St. Clar, plums from Agen, foie grass, truffles, cheeses, cassoulet de Toulouse (duck caserole).
