Hotels in Gers

Gers Details

It is probably difficult to find a place in southern France that is not comfortable or agreeable, but Gers and the communities there are definitely known to be just that. The traveler who steps outside a discount hotel in Gers will find an agricultural region that produces some good wine. This particular industry was established centuries ago for the purpose of sending wine home with the occupiers Romans and then English. Close to the desirable destination of the Pyrenees, Gers has geography of rolling hills interspersed by flat valleys. The primary products, aside from grapes and wine, are grain crops and cattle. Those who have settled into a hotel in Gers can get a close-up view of the ducks and geese that are the foundation for preserves, pate and foie gras that the region is known for. As is the case with many provinces and departments in France, Gers gets its name from the river Gers. It is one of the original departments dating from 1790 and the French Revolution.
