Gers, France (October 2007)  
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 13th November 2007 at 12:07 AM

We spent the October half-term with Laura's parents in the south of France. It was the first time we'd made the trip in the Autumn - we were really lucky with the weather and the colours were spectacular, but it did start to get cold towards the end of our stay.

Castex   
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 13th November 2007 at 12:12 AM

Gerald and Evelyne live in Castex, a small hamlet just south of Miélan, in the département of Gers. Population (at the 1999 census) was 88; I met most of them when I went for a wander with my new camera. Click here to view this Page



Auch and Condom

Auch, the capital of the département (and the historic capital of Gascony), is about 40km north east of Miélan. Condom, still in Gers, is another 40km heading north. Click here to view this Page



Larressingle

The fortified village of Larressingle, just to the west of Condom, is one of the most perfect examples of medieval architecture still in existence. It has overlooked the gently rolling fields and vineyards of northern Armagnac for over seven centuries. Click here to view this Page



Les Pyrénées   
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 13th November 2007 at 12:17 AM

Our second day trip took us almost 100km south into the Pyrénées to the town of Bagnères-de-Luchon. Very pretty, but don't try to take lunch any later than 12:30. Click here to view this Page
