Our great build huts in the woods and are vigils around the fire at night, inviting us to eat sausages and bratwurst.
We organized a picnic hike with our horse which carried the 'kit' and small a little tired.

The advantages of Gers:
This area, the most agricultural France in number of farms, suffered a population decline following that labor replaced by mechanization of labor. Thanks to this, beautiful architecture and rich history of this region has remained intact without being polluted by new buildings often uniform and banal that do not fit at all to the local environment!
On the other hand, the stone of clear and warm country and channel tile roofs give these buildings an undeniable charm.
The story is rich in this transition region is marked by invasions from the north sometimes, sometimes the south that created the need for perching and fortifying villages, leaving in each of them the remains of doors, walls or churches giving, with the existing or disappeared castle, the Castelnaus.
The newest, houses, new creations from the 13th century to develop trade under some protection, leave us well squared villages with beautiful and large halls, timbered houses and majestic churches.
The hilly landscape with a descendant ten parallel rivers Lannemezan plateau is superb with the tracery of wood and well cultivated fields. The ridges roads offer magnificent views of sight.
The habitat, highly dispersed, encouraged the creation of numerous cultural, sports or mutual aid which are very dynamic. This leads to a remarkable cohesion in the population that no longer exists in cities or shopping are all distractions. People are peaceful and workers and relationship with money are much less exacerbated.
Road traffic is very low and the related nuisances. Many marked and maintained trails provide unforgettable hiking, biking and equestrian.
Finally the nearby Pyrenees offers us beautiful panoramas (when the atmosphere allows you to see) and the possibility of one or two day excursions or to practice climbing in summer and skiing in winter.
