Discover our tour
Day 1: First Step in Occitanie
Let’s discover the department of Gers, and the richness of its soil, its landscapes and its culture. Ready to go? Let’s go for the disconnection.
Let’s take the road to the charming rural town of Puylausic, located in the Gers department. During a cooking workshop, Julien will share with us his passion for cooking. We will learn how to cook a gourmet meal and then reap the rewards of our hard work by enjoying the delicious meal.
The sisters of Boulaur Abbey are the next to welcome us with open arms and help us discover this Cistercian abbey. They will also tell us more about the side activity of the inhabitants of the place: agriculture.
Day 2: Gers Discovery
The territory of the Gers is surprising. Let’s discover its cultural richness, and especially its gastronomic and wine heritage which makes its reputation. Let’s enjoy it !
Discover one of the most beautiful villages in France: Lavardens. We will follow our guide to this Gascon castle, a place full of history, a witness to the past and which was once the fortress of the Counts of Armagnac.
Let’s continue to the Domaine du Grand Comté, where Michel Baylac and his family will share with us their passion for 150 years: Armagnac and Floc de Gascogne. We are lucky enough to be able to taste these products from their estate.
Travelling south to Pavie, we will meet Julie and Cyril. They will lend you one of their 8 Huskies to go on a Cani-Rando to discover the Besmaux wood in good company.
Day 3: Slow-life
Today, let’s take our time. Let’s enjoy. Let’s rest. Let’s relax.
Day 4: Aspiring farmer
It’s time to enjoy the greatness of nature: the one that feeds us, the one that offers us breathtaking landscapes. From the countryside to the mountains, there is only one step.
Upon awakening, we will participate in the life of the Trencalli Farm by helping Stéphane in the daily tasks: participating in milking and cheese making. After the effort, the comfort: we will taste the products of the farm during lunch.
Take the road to the Hautes-Pyrénées and the Col du Tourmalet. From there, we will enjoy a breathtaking view as we take the cable car up to the Pic du Midi. Once on the roof of the Pyrenees, we will discover this place full of history, enjoy the view and venture on the suspension bridge.
Day 5 and 6: Roaming in the Pyrenees: disconnection or reconnection?
Let’s embark on this crazy adventure: guided by experts, spending two nights and three days in the heart of the mountain, cut off from civilization, but connected to nature.
Today, let’s meet Delphine and Chris who will be our guides for the next adventure that awaits us. They will introduce us to Hermine, Josephine, Ebena and Edelie, the mules in charge of carrying all the gear. Once the introductions are made, we will leave for a three day and two night hike in the Pyrenees.
Experience the disconnection from the modern world to (re)connect with nature, meet the local flora and fauna, observe the stars, and taste the local products that the mules have carried.
Day 7: Back to civilization
Complete the hike at the end of the day, and enjoy some comfort in your guesthouse.
Day 8 : See you soon!
Last day of this tour, but not the least. Last thrills, last tastings of the local gastronomy. Let’s enjoy.
Notice to the courageous: the Garonne becomes a playground on board a canoe. We will discover the magnificent landscapes that are offered to us, at the foot of the mountains.
Close to extinction, today, Bigorre black ham is recognized as one of the best in the world. Why not stop in Mongausy to visit Julie and Pierre’s farm and taste their delicious charcuterie.
Let’s take the direction of Toulouse and say goodbye to Occitania during a suspended moment on the Garonne. Thanks to the rental of an electric boat without a license, visit Toulouse from another point of view, in all tranquility.
Set against the valley, Le Florida is a confidential Eden where you can live at your own pace, with a relaxed mind. Opening onto the gardens of the inn, bathed in light and with a design infused with uncluttered rusticity, the rooms welcome you warmly.
Le Domaine d'Escapa
Estipouy, in the south of the Gers, welcomes you to spend the evening and the night in the unusual accommodations of the Domaine d’Escapa.
After a day in the heart of nature, enjoy a night at Castelnau-Rivière-Basse in the Trencalli Farm.
Once back at the bottom of the mountain, we will enjoy the comfort of the Bigourd’in guesthouse and spend the night there.
Under the stars
Traveling by roaming is not synonymous with a lack of comfort: you will spend the next two nights in comfortable tents.
Let’s enjoy a night at the Lavalou guest house, in Lannemezan, where Pat and Valou will be happy to welcome us warmly, for a well deserved rest.
