THINGS TO DO

 

Termes d'Armagnac is a small medieval village nestled in the heart of the Gers, the most rural department in France.  If you want peace and relaxation, looking over the Pyrenees, then this is the perfect place.  If you want activities, the region has plenty to offer.

The village itself is famous for its 35-metre medieval tower providing stunning views of the Pyrenees.  The site is used for various medieval-themed events throughout the year.  Further details at www.tourdetermes.fr.  We are also close to the famous Marciac Jazz Festival, which runs for three weeks over the summer, and has some of the world's leading musicians playing.
