Gascony: a region bursting with hidden gems
Who better to talk to about this beautiful land than Katy? Katy is the perfect person to find you the best local caterers to make your wedding a truly authentic French experience for both you and your guests. “Even though Bordeaux and Toulouse are perhaps more well-known to tourists, Gascony and Aquitaine are overflowing with architectural, culinary and historical treasures.” she tells us.
If you’re searching for a region filled with authentic French charm, Gascony is filled with archaeological reserves and traditional towns, providing you with an exceptional and truly one-of-a-kind backdrop for your dream wedding. Spend a romantic afternoon on bike ride though the French vineyards and countryside hills, then take a little break in one of the numerous little villages, known for being some of the most picturesque in the country. The cuisine is just as enticing, boasting foie gras, duck confit, Agen plums and other delicious flavours. And, it goes without saying, the wine is out of this world.
A chateau to host the wedding of your dreams
Many French kings were born and raised in chateaux that are dotted throughout the region. There are more than 150 chateaux and stately homes in the Pays du Gers and the Lot-et-Garonne, a large number of which have been converted into reception venues to make your special day look like a royal wedding. For any brides dreaming of dancing their first dance in a grand ballroom under magnificent chandeliers, Katy is sure to be able to help you locate your perfect fairy-tale venue.
