The department of Gers is often described by those who know France as an excellent area to visit, if not the best area of France for Brits who want to relocate. It is not over-run however and indeed, the department has a diverse array of assets to discover, some of them are obvious; the rolling countryside, very mild climate, the Pyrenees mountains, whilst others remain more subtle like the hearty food, local culture, street markets and Gascon traditions. Foreigners often refer to the area as Gascony, referring to the former French province.
The department is generally an agricultural area where the local gastronomy is highly regarded by both French nationals and foreign expats. The most cultivated crops in Gers are Colza, Grain, Sunflowers and Corn. Some of the older locals may speak a Gascon patois, but its usage remains in decline among the younger generations. The largest Gersoise towns in terms of number of inhabitants are Auch, Condom and Fleurance but even these are not overly large.
