Aignan - or the town of Armagnac

The little town of Aignan, which is found among the lovely rolling fields of golden sunflowers and the well kept vineyards of the Gers department of south-west France, has long held an importance to the area. The original home to the counts of Gascony, and therefore the first capital town of the area, it is still a notable centre for the production of the region's prestigious drink, Armagnac.

Amenities on offer

Aignan is a small town that is full of authentic charm, with an arcaded central square and many lovely traditional buildings. Among the historic buildings there is a notable 12th century church and a chateau in which you can find an interesting museum. Aignan has a good collection of shops and cafés, and there is a superb leisure lake on the edge of town where you can swim and relax in the Gascon sunshine.

Armagnac and duck are the local specialities

Visit too the Armagnac co-operative and try this local brandy for yourself... it's a heart warming experience! Other local specialities are "all things duck", as this is the land of duck confits, foie gras and prunes, the latter being frequently served soaked in Armagnac, a process that transforms this humble fruit into something quite sublime.

Out and about

Gascony is a predominantly rural region, and the landscapes are instantly recognisable. All around Aignan the countryside is full of rolling fields, filled with brilliant golden sunflowers in early summer and acres of neatly kept vineyards. Getting out and about from Aignan could take you to the beautiful departmental capital town of Auch, where there is enough to see and do to at least fill a day. The pretty market town of Mirande is also worth a visit, and if you happen to be in the area in late August, the International Jazz Festival held in nearby Marciac is outstanding.

How to get there

There are several arrival airports to choose from if you are flying to the area. Pau, with flights from budget airline Ryanair, is the nearest, but further choices could be Bordeaux, Toulouse or Biarritz. It's even possible to travel by ferry to Bilbao, or by train to Toulouse or Bordeaux. For drivers, and it is always advisable to have a car so that you can see all that this lovely area has to offer, the town is found on the D20 and D48 roads.
