Golf and wellness in Gascony
Today our focus is on Gascony as we invite you to relax in Casteljaloux, in the heart of Aquitaine.
Let’s borrow from Edmond Rostand, author of Cyrano, his description of the Captains of Gascony of Castel-Jaloux: "shameless liars (...) eye of an eagle (...) legs of a stork".

You can keep your ‘agile legs’ in shape these days by taking advantage of the treatments from the spa and the "Baths of Casteljaloux" thermal relaxation facilities. Or you can give them a work-out around the 18-hole golf course, between valleys, lake and pine forest.
It’s got everything to keep you in perfect shape... from head to toe! Not to mention the friendly encounters with people eager to chat over a plate of local produce.
As for somewhere to stay, may we suggest, from a very wide choice, two really comfortable tourist accommodation options.
One, Résidence des Bains***, right next to the spa area – ideal for popping across in your bathrobe from your apartment.
The other, the Demeures du Lac***, is just a few minutes’ walk from the golf course. With a natural beach by the lake, a forest, single-storey houses ... life here is made easy for families.
