Gascony is often known as the Tuscany of France, with rolling hills, a plethora of sunflowers, wonderful fortified hilltop villages and a multitude of vineyards, many producing the local nectar Armagnac.
The least populated department in France and whole Europe, with empty roads, an almost total lack of mass-market commercialisation, and the feel of a people truly at one with their land.
This is an area of great natural beauty, very much rooted in its traditions and respect for it’s inhabitants. Community life is still the norm here, with dozens of local markets selling provisions produced and sold directly by the farmers themselves, and each year, more of these products are organically produced.
Gascony was recently voted the second best place in the world in which to live.
