How to discribe in the best way Le Domaine du CASTEX *** ?
CASTEX is located at the end of a no-through road on the boundary of AIGNAN, without any trafic noise.
Here you see a grand mediaval renovated, authentic, half timbered building, on a beautiful terrain. Situated in a park-like valley which is typical for the department of the Gers, the Tuscany of France.
The main building contains 5 rooms, 2 apartments (gîtes) for rent. It has open and covered terraces and restaurant and surrounding it Picnic and barbecue facilities. In this building is also situated : the home of Arie and Hannie, the host and hostess.
In wintertime we use an interiour drawing room and dining room, compared to the other seasons (just like the Romans).
A simple dish or full evening meal can be served by prior reservation on the day (before 15.00h); on special request at noon (French repas-midi), a group upto 35 persons can be catered for.
On the terrain there are several possiblities to relax/amuse yourself (by playing table tennis etc.), to swim or simply being lazy in the green park . Of course you can also take a walk to the center of AIGNAN, go there for a restaurant on the square or in front of the Arena.

The department falls under the region of Occitane in stead of the Midi-Pyrenees. The locals still regard themselves as Gascon.
