"The Pyrenees themselves offer magnificent scenery, particularly in the Summer months" 
Golf: At Auch there is a challenging golf course with a restaurant and another good course is at Tillac. 
 
Water Park: The Aqua park at Mirande is very accessible and great fun 
 
Cycling: This is great cycling country, although the hills are quite steep! Bicycles can be hired at the Lac de Seissan some five miles away. 
 
Tennis: Just across the valley there is a fine modern court at the village of Loubersan. 
 
Summer Festivals: Most Gascon towns have special festivals in the Summer. Nearby Marciac boasts the third largest jazz fetival in the world and Mirande has a famous country and western event in July. 
 
Walking: There are a growing network of “sentiers” – marked footpaths in this part of France. Otherwise just walk out of the drive and keep walking in beautiful peaceful countryside. 
 
Thermal Baths can be found in Lectoure, Castera Verduzan or in many parts of the Pyrenees. 
 
Skiing: The Pyrenees have a number of underestimated ski resorts. There is usually excellent snow until May and the pistes are never overcrowded except in the holiday periods. The main resorts are La Mongie, Cauterets and St Lary.
