Le Domaine du Castex
Campsite/rental accommodations for individuals, couples, families and groups in the Gers
Le Domaine du CASTEX is located on the outskirts of an old village, a bastide: AIGNAN in the middle of department the Gers (Midi-Pyrenees).
The bastide Aignan
was also called the capital of the Armagnac. It is located in the middle of many green hills with vineyards, maize and sunflower fields and forests. Wine, Armagnac, Floc de Gascogne and duck are the different specialities of the region. The diverse and colourful landscape view, for instance, towards the Pyrenees is breathtakingly beautiful.
Close to the Pyrenees, with all its activities, lies the city of Lourdes (80 km), which is worth a visit. Legendary in the Gers is d'Artagnan, the fourth musketeer, whose story is well known, as well as the museum in Lupiac which is named after him and the special “Santiago de Compostella pilgrim route”.
The environment is very pleasant for people who like to make trips, either by foot or by horse as well as for mountain bikers. Look on the website of the Tourist Information Office Aignan, Armagnac/Adour, for the surroundings.
The climate in the Gers is “Mediterranean-Atlantic”, there can be 60 -80 days with temperatures of 25 °C. Spring starts early and gives an early feeling of summer. This is the most appreciated season for touring cyclists and hikers. One can still see the snow on the summits of the Pyrenees when the cornfields start to grow on the Gascony hills.
From the beginning of April until the end of June the average temperatures are between 16°C and 25°C.
In July and August the weather is warm and sunny. Minimum temperatures vary easily from
13°C to 15°C in the morning, towards 22°C to 32°C during the day. Often the end of summer is still warm with temperatures from 21°C to 25°C. October temperatures remain very pleasant, which is also an ideal time for a holiday...
