    Although the area is fairly hilly, it is popular with cyclists and walkers. The farm and vicinity offers several pleasant walks and there are a number of villages worth visiting. In addition, you are welcome to go to the regular markets with me in two different towns on a Monday and Friday which sell fresh produce, plenty of good home made food, clothes, shoes, jewellery, even arts & crafts.

    The capital of this area, Auch, boasts a beautiful cathedral and a good variety of shops as well as bars, cafes and restaurants. There is a train station from where you can take the train to either Toulouse or Bordeaux.
